About Koos Jansen
Koos started his financial blog “In Gold We Trust” (ingoldwetrust.ch/) in 2013. His curiosity about our market made him gather an incredible amount of information in a relatively short period of time about the Chinese gold market and he gained much insight into the role of gold in international financial markets. He now shares his information and experiences vividly with a larger audience primarily via his blog.
Like other commentators Jansen sees the development in China as an expression of the shift of power from the West towards the East. In his estimation, as of Q1 2014 Chinese authorities own between 3.000 – 4.000 tons of gold in their vaults in order to support the internationalization of the Yuan.
