Investing in Commodities with Roy Salame

The HC Insider Podcast

Each day, around the world, we have fascinating one-on-one conversations with our connections. Our collaborators are uniquely informed, creative and inspirational in their fields. We want to provide our community a seat alongside us, listening in to these conversations in that special way podcasting provides, as we tackle topical and people related issues with the leaders and leading minds in our sector.

Roy Salame, former Head of the Global Investment Opportunities Group at JP Morgan Private Bank and previously Vice Chairman of the Commodities Group at JP Morgan, joins us to discuss investing in commodities.

Roy makes a compelling argument that all investors should follow the commodities sector and expands on the asset class’ role in portfolio theory. Roy was involved in the creation of the first commodity index so we walk through some of the types of products available to gain exposure and express positions. We also look to the future.  With COVID, Energy Transition and host of new commodities becoming ever more relevant, Roy also discusses what the future might hold for investors in the sector. We even touch on cryptos and water.
