Daniel Takahashi, director at DKO Capital, believes there are opportunities right now despite the slowdown seen in the resource space.
Interview by Scott Tibballs; article text by Priscila Barrera.
Daniel Takahashi, director at DKO Capital, talked to the Investing News Network at this year’s International Mining and Resources Conference (IMARC) about the state of the mining sector.
Takahashi, who is focused on risk management, said there are opportunities right now despite the slowdown seen in the resource space ― but diversification is key in every portfolio to maximize returns.
“I was told in Wall Street that when the crowd is running away you want to go in,” he said. “So right now, I am not running away, I am going in looking for investment opportunities.”
Speaking about which commodity he is most excited about, Takahashi said platinum is very interesting.
“It is very difficult to get exposure to platinum, there are not many platinum companies out there,” he said. “The junior space is very hard.”
Takahashi added that instead, he sees platinum futures as a very compelling opportunity. “If you want the junior exposure, if you want the high-risk, high-reward, platinum futures will do it,” he said.
