Resource Investing News was able to chat with Gianni Kovacevic, a speaker at Cambridge House International’s 2015 Vancouver Resource Investment Conference, about his outlook for the copper market.
Kovacevic, chairman of Copperbank Resources (CSE:CBK), authored the book My Electrician Drives a Porsche? last year. Written as a novel, the book follows the story of a young electrician who teaches his family doctor about the importance of copper and investing in commodities. Kovacevic spoke on that subject at the conference, and also participated in the popular Future Commodity Outlook Panel.
The speaker reiterated that he is “very positive” on the outlook for copper and gave some more insight into what he sees driving the long-term outlook for the red metal. Specifically, he pointed out that despite fears of a slowdown in economic growth from China, the state power grid recently announced an investment of over $67 billion in electrical infrastructure, which, of course, will require a whole lot of copper.
In terms of other commodities he’s interested in, Kovacevic mentioned platinum and palladium. “I like any kind of commodity that is considered ‘green,’” he said, alluding to the use of platinum-group metals in catalytic converters for vehicles. In that vein, he pointed to Yukon-focused Wellgreen Platinum (TSX:WG) — a company that he’s invested in — as one that could be an “interesting opportunity.”
