Strategic metals

Strategic Metals – drivers of our lives in the 21st century, be it in electronics, mobility or sustainable energy. Strategic Metals include rare earth elements as well as specialty metals used in LEDs, magnets, electric motors, sensors and many other components used in smartphones, flat screens, cars, and our homes. Now they are becoming available for physical investment, including secure storage in bonded warehouses.
