Matthew Piepenberg

Matt began his finance career as a transactional attorney before launching his first hedge fund during the NASDAQ bubble of 1999-2001

Thereafter, he began investing his own and other HNW family funds into alternative investment vehicles while operating as a General Counsel, CIO and later Managing Director of a single and multi-family office. Matthew worked closely as well with Morgan Stanley’s hedge fund platform in building a multi-strat/multi-manager fund to better manage risk in a market backdrop of extreme central bank intervention/support. The conviction that precious metals provides the most reliable and longer-term protection against potential systemic risk led Matt to join VON GREYERZ.

The author of the Amazon No#1 Release, Rigged to Fail, Matt is fluent in French, German and English; he is a graduate of Brown (BA), Harvard (MA) and the University of Michigan (JD). His widely respected reports on macro conditions and the changing behaviour of risk assets are published regularly at SignalsMatter.com.

Recently, my colleague, Egon von Greyerz, and I had some unabashed yet blunt fun calling out the staggering levels of open hypocrisy and policy desperation unleashed by former Fed Chairman, Alan Greenspan.
In recent weeks, I’ve authored many reports pointing toward the certainty of both current as well as rising inflation ahead, which, of course, is favorable to the long-term price direction in gold.

Worried about gold sentiment? Don’t be. The mainstream view of gold right now is an open yawn, and sentiment indicators for this precious metal are now at 3-year lows despite the gold highs of last August. Is this cause for genuine concern...
Despite a penchant for double-speak that would make a politician blush, the Fed tells us that its primary focus is unemployment not inflation. Let me remind readers, however, that an openly nervous Mr. Powell came out in the summer of 2020...
Regardless of one’s politics, most would agree that extremely complex issues are typically given extremely misleading titles. Not all those of the extreme left, for example, are all that “woke” and not everyone on the far right, to be fair...
In markets, as in love, it’s obviously hard to let go of something familiar yet clearly not working; but as all sober romantics eventually discover: Toxic relationships hurt.
Most law graduates share a capacity to argue two-sides of any case, regardless of their own primary conviction. When it comes to gold, my verdict as to its ultimate price direction (upwards) and its historical role (wealth preservation)...
It should and will come as no surprise that fundamentals like valuation basics and sane credit levels have left the building (and securities markets) for some time. Today, we literally invest (i.e. buy and sell) in a veritable market...
