As a precious metals researcher and analyst of many years standing I have no hesitation in fully endorsing Swiss Metals Assets S.A as a bona fide provider of gold, silver, Rare Strategic Metals (RSM) and Rare Earth Elements (REE).

Investing in or converting your currency into Physical Strategic & Precious Metals (Silver & Gold) is a means of securing a safe harbor during times of financial crises. We are living in a time where “too big to fail” simply isn’t true, where market swings can pang a deadly knockout punch and when rounds of quantitative easing are becoming the band-aid of choice in tackling sovereign debt and with it rising inflation.

Thankfully, Strategic Metals do not exist in these shadowy realms. Strategic & Precious Metals are tangible fixed assets that are not correlated to normal financial market trends. They are the essential components used across a broad spectrum of industry and demand continues to outweigh supply. That is why at Swiss Metal Assets our Strategic Metal Baskets have returned an average of 25% a year, every year, over the past 3 years.

Who are Swiss Metal Assets?

In 2009, Haines & Maassen partnered with the Swiss firm Schweizerische Metallhandels AG to provide a way for European buyers to claim their own stake in Rare and Strategic Metals. Instead of selling Metals in substantial amounts to industrial clientele, the partnership splits them into nominal quantities, allowing individuals to own them physically while securely storing them in the Zurich duty free zone.

Two years later, Schweizerische Metallhandels AG opened offices in the Americas under the name Swiss Metal Assets (SMA). Now investors all over the world have access to this market.

The results, frankly, have been phenomenal. In 2011, the values of the Metals in SMA’s original “A” and “B” Rare and Strategic Metals baskets increased 21%. Our “C” basket is up 13% since its launch in October 2011.

Why Rare or Critical Strategic Metals?

The demand for Critical Strategic Metals is vastly outweighing supply in the West. This is largely due to the fact these Rare earth and Strategic Metals are controlled by the East! It is estimated that China controls 96% of the world’s Rare earth & critical Metals even though they only have 40% of the reserves. As such, they have a stranglehold on the refining process at this time.

This, along with mining and extraction difficulties, has led the West to formally recognize these shortages as shown in the studies below.

The British Geological Society Risk List 2011

US DOE Critical Metals Strategy 2011

EU 2010 Critical Materials Study

All these studies echo the same message - Strategic Metals are critical to industry in the West and there are supply issues. The Korean Government, for another example, added Indium to its “Control of Supply” list in July 2011 in an effort to protect technology manufacturers such as SAMSUNG and LG.
