DEFINITION of 'Precious Metals'

A classification of metals that are considered to be rare and/or have a high economic value. The higher relative values of these metals are driven by various factors including their rarity, uses in industrial processes and use as an investment commodity.

Precious metals include, but are not limited to: gold, silver, platinum, iridium, rhodium and palladium.

Precious metals have been recognized as inherently valuable throughout recorded history. Unlike any other asset, precious metals possess a unique combination of brilliance, scarcity, workability, utility and durability. They have played key roles in the economic, industrial, scientific and artistic development of every human civilization.
Today, precious metals are also a critical part of a well-diversified investment portfolio. They are tangible assets that function like a global currency offering security in times of political or international unrest, or economic uncertainty. Investors holding precious metals bullion enjoy the peace of mind that comes from owing the most universally accepted and liquid form of asset.
By including precious metals in your investment strategy, your portfolio will:
·      Include an alternative asset that distinguishes its return potential from stocks and bonds
·      Maintain purchasing power, as the intrinsic value of your holdings will not fluctuate over time
·      Serve as a hedge against inflation in times of economic uncertainty
·      Provide a safe haven in times of political or international unrest
·      Embody a diversity by combining stocks and bonds with a commodity investment

Investing in precious metals can be done either by purchasing the physical asset, or by purchasing futures contracts for the particular metal. Another way to gain investment exposure to precious metals is to purchase shares in publicly traded companies that deal in the exploration or production of precious metals, such as a gold mining company.

Buying an artistic Jewellery piece is always also considered a significant option..! Investing in precious metals is like INVESTING IN LOVE......
