#371 – Frank Holmes, U.S. Global Investors, HIVE Blockchain – JETS, Bitcoin vs. Gold, & How To Play Supply Chain Issues

63 minutes

In episode 371, we welcome our guest, Frank Holmes, the CEO of not one but two companies – U.S. Global Investors, an investment manager with both ETFs and mutual funds, and HIVE Blockchain, the first cryptocurrency mining company to go public.

In today’s episode, we’re talking ETFs and crypto! Frank starts by sharing what piqued his interest in crypto and why he chose to go down the mining path instead of pursuing a Bitcoin ETF. He offers some macro perspective on crypto and how it differs from gold. Then we turn to the ETF space and hear about Frank’s hit ETF, JETS, which focuses on the airline industry and caught fire in 2020 after the March decline as retail interest skyrocketed.

Be sure to stick around until the end when Frank shares the thesis behind his newest ETF around the marine shipping and air freight industries.
