On-Floor Seminar at The Trading Show Chicago: Wealth preservation using physical ownership of strategic & precious metals
Knut Andersen, Director of Swiss Metal Assets, S.A., presented the service that his company from Switzerland offers for investors to preserve wealth through ownership of strategic and precious metal – metals with specialized uses in products such as aircrafts and electronics as well as metals that are precious due to limited supplies.
SMA provides anonymous acquisition and storage of these metals in a Swiss vault. Certain metal baskets are available for investors, such as basket A consisting of indium, hafnium, gallium, bismuth, tantalum and tellurium, which enjoyed a 75% appreciation over the past 3 years.
Knut also presented the logistics and operations of SMA, from the acquisition of metal suppliers to transportation of metal to Swiss storage facilities to the design of the metal vaults to issuance of metal ownership certificates to liquidation of metals.
