Hedge Week reported an interview with Knut Andersen of Swiss Metals Assets, which assits investors in buying rare earths.
As quoted in the market news:
SMA’s objectives are quite simple: to stockpile rare strategic metals on behalf of clients (and itself), in Switzerland and Panama, with a view to then offering them back to the market in three to five years’ time at elevated prices.
SMA offers its clients the choice of four metal ‘baskets’. They are: Key Industries, Energy, Construction and Engineering, and Defence. Indium, Gallium, Hafnium, Tellurium, Tantalum and Bismuth are six of the 12 strategic metals offered by SMA, and make up the Key Industries basket.
