#39 - Frank E. Holmes - Crypto Mining, The Yellow Metal & the JETS ETF
Frank E. Holmes is CEO and Chief Investment Officer of U.S. Global Investors. Under Frank’s direction, the company has exceeded all expectations in the highly-competitive ETF market, having launched the JETS ETF in 2015, a fund that shot to prominence this year – a darling of Robinhood traders -, and which now commands nearly $3bn AUM.
Frank made his name in Mining, receiving various awards from the Mining Journal, including Fund Manager of the Year in 2006 and Best Americas Based Fund Manager in 2016. Other achievements include the co-authorship of The Goldwatcher: Demystifying Gold Investing, a book published with John Katz in 2008.
Frank & U.S. Global Investors have looked beyond traditional markets, too – investing in the first publicly-traded cryptocurrency mining firm, HIVE, in 2017. Frank shares his plans for HIVE, and how the company’s stock has surged over 1570% this year. Enjoy the episode!
