UBS is 'very bullish on gold,' says prices could stay high longer

UBS has raised its gold price forecast for next year from $1,850 to $2,100 per ounce, said Yeoh Choo Guan, the bank's head of ASEAN global markets.

."We are very bullish on gold. We think that the prices will go higher and what is interesting is we think it will stay higher for longer than expected," Yeoh Choo Guan, the bank's head of Asean global markets, told CNBC's"Squawk Box Asia"

What was interesting is that gold was very resilient despite the equity's pullback, suggesting that there's ongoing buying support," she said.

"On top of that, gold is also a very attractive portfolio diversifier. I think a lot of investors have been piling into bonds and REITs (real estate investment trusts), so gold is viewed as an alternative to that, in case that particular segment gives you pressure," she added.

REITs are publicly traded companies that manage a portfolio of properties such as shopping malls, hotels and offices. They typically attract investors who want a steady and regular dividend payout.Growing 'domestic wealth' in Southeast AsiaIn addition to gold, Yeoh said she's also bullish on Southeast Asian stock markets.

Share prices in the region have suffered as foreign funds retreated from several markets. But Yeoh pointed out that the markets have rebounded "much faster than we anticipated," helped bygreater participation from retail investorsand domestic funds.

She explained that "domestic wealth" in Southeast Asian countries have been growing, as is evident in the expansion of local asset managers. That's good news for markets in the region, she said."This stock market, or capital market in general, will continue to be resilient and very strong — not only in the short term, but also in the mid term."
