A procura de cofres-fortes disparou. Os ricos procuram soluções alternativas aos bancos para guardar a sua riqueza.
O verbo “desbancarizar” já tinha surgido (em inglês) há meia-dúzia de anos, mas agora a coisa tornou-se moda, como a Bloomberg regista:
From London to Switzerland to parts of the U.S., the rich are looking to store precious metals, cash and cryptocurrency. For some, it’s the threat of a global recession. Others are avoiding bank deposits as negative interest rates force lenders to charge for holding cash. Many are concerned about natural disasters.
Hedge fund titan Ray Dalio captured the anxiety last month when he warned the global economy is under threat from an explosive mix of ineffective monetary policy, a widening wealth gap and climate change. A majority of wealthy investors are stockpiling cash in anticipation of a sharp market drop before the end of next year, according to a survey of clients from UBS Global Wealth Management.”
