John Feneck: Backdrop for Precious Metals is the Best I’ve Seen in My 28 Year Career


In this interview, precious metals sector expert John Feneck discusses how he is currently investing. He sees the current setup as the best backdrop for precious metals he has seen in his 30-year career. John also advises high net worth financial advisors and shares his observations of how these individuals are viewing the market.

John began his career in 1992 as an equity analyst on the Merrill Lynch global allocation fund (MALOX). From 1993-2019, John was a senior executive for Mutual Fund and ETF providers, spending most of his career at Merrill Lynch Funds (now Blackrock) and JP Morgan Chase Funds. He was ranked #1 in both gross and net sales once at Merrill Lynch and three times at JP Morgan Chase (out of 40 senior executives). He was a member of the precious metals PM team at Sprott in 2017 and has developed a compelling track record based on a proprietary methodology, which combines technical analysis with public information gathered from direct interaction with senior management of commodities companies. In September 2019, John launched Feneck Consulting LLC based on demand from commodity companies, especially those in the metals and mining sector.
