New Research From Global Palladium Fund Reveals Institutional Investors Predict an Increase in Industrial Activity Will Drive Precious Metal Prices Higher
Adoption of green technologies and combating climate change are key factors in demand for precious metals
ZUG, Switzerland, March 25, 2021 (Newswire.com) - New research with institutional investors and wealth managers reveals a positive outlook for global industrial activity in 2021, and this should have a positive impact on demand for precious metals and their valuations.
The study from Global Palladium Fund (GPF), which has recently listed four physically-backed metal Exchange Traded Commodities (ETCs) - including ones that track the spot price of palladium and platinum - shows that two-thirds of investors (67%) predict industrial activity will increase this year. This will drive the price of metals such as silver, palladium and platinum higher according to 69% of professional investors surveyed. Almost a quarter (24%) predict that prices will increase dramatically.
Alexander Stoyanov, Chief Executive Officer of GPF, said: "Our research shows just how important precious metals are to making the green economy a reality. Their properties mean that they have a fundamental role to play in technologies such as hydrogen fuel cells and other green technologies crucial to changing the world we live in and, as a result, the demand for metals such as palladium and platinum will increase."
GPF ETCs are listed on the Deutsche Börse and London Stock Exchange and have the lowest charges with total expense ratios (TER) ranging from 0.145% to 0.20%. Targeting Family Offices, wealth managers, institutional and other professional investors, the new physically-backed gold, silver, platinum and palladium ETCs track the spot price of the respective metals they cover.
The ETCs have a strong focus on ESG. LBMA-approved metal will be sourced from producers and suppliers who support the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN 2030 Agenda and other global initiatives in sustainable development and responsible mining.
GPF is also the first to use Blockchain technology to record bar information into Distributed Ledger Technology, thereby providing an extra layer of security and proof of ownership to the Issuer. The use of Blockchain is in addition to the traditional recording processes used by the custodian.
