The money market is no longer yielding anything, the stock market is saturated and the property market is close to overheating. No wonder that private investors ‘ interest in technology metals and rare earths is currently increasing. These raw materials are urgently needed for almost all high-tech applications as well as technological developments. As alternative investments they add a smart recession and crisis-proof component to each investment portfolio.
Technology metals and rare earths are not traded on the stock exchange. Their price is based solely on supply and demand. The market participants are exclusively producers, specialized retailers such as TRADIUM and the manufacturing industry. This distinguishes technology metals and rare earths from industrial and investment metals that are traded on the stock exchange and do not physically belong to the investor.
With technology metals and rare earths, there can be no risky stock market speculations. Investors are largely investing in a crisis-proof way. The complex processes and terminations for exchange-traded metals or mine stocks, which are often incomprehensible to outsiders, are also eliminated.
Because they are not financial products, investments in technology metals and rare earths also offer significant tax benefits. If they are sold, the profit will not incur any flat rate withholding tax or solidarity surcharge. All other taxes such as income tax, profit tax and wealth tax.
Even VAT does not play a role in a smart investment via TRADIUM: The metals are stored in the duty-free warehouse of METLOCK GmbH and are delivered exclusively to industrial customers. So apart from a storage fee, there are no further costs for investors in the case of a physical investment in technology metals and rare earths.
The current situation clearly speaks in favor of an investment in technology metals and rare earths as permanent assets: The increasing demand for high-tech products, digital technologies and renewable energies are making these resources more and more desirable. This development is reinforced by the growing world population and the development of many emerging economies into prosperous industrialized countries. However, resources are finite. You don’t have to be a mathematician to infer an increase in value from rapid transformations and growing demands.
Also very important for the price development of strategic resources: The vast majority of technology metals and rare earths comes from China. Since about 2010 the country has been building up its own strategic reserves of raw materials, which also limits the supply. An end to this policy is not yet foreseeable.
Unlike gold, strategic resources are actually consumed. TRADIUM has been buying and selling technology metals and rare earths for over two decades. The range of resources in which customers of TRADIUM Invest can invest is therefore always aligned with the current requirements of the market and its industrial consumers.
Further, at TRADIUM the raw materials remain in their original packaging. This guarantees a high degree of liquidity should investors want to part with their alternative investment. Technology metals and rare earths are needed across many industries. This makes this investment even more crisis- and recession-proof.
TRADIUM is one of the few traders to make the new asset class of strategic resources accessible to private investors. This gives you the chance to become part of a market that until a few years ago was open only to industrial customers. Your physical investment in the form of metals and powders can also be stored at banking security level with our partner company METLOCK.
