According to Ulrich Schwark, CEO at SMA, “As concerns about the ‘fiscal cliff’, and more rounds of quantitative easing become more widely understood, individuals are looking at alternatives to traditional investments for protecting their assets against the falling dollar.”
Rare strategic metals, while less well known than gold, silver and platinum, provide similar inflation fighting benefits. But, because of their growing use in both military and civilian applications, show a better potential for higher long term gains.
Often referred to as technological metals, these elements are used in high tech applications ranging from LCD screens and night vision goggles to jet engine, hybrid car, and missile parts.
There are, however, costs associated with rare metals ownership beyond just acquiring the metal. Ulrich says “After purchasing the metals, they need to be stored securely. And then, buyers need to be located, and the logistics of shipping the metals to manufacturers needs to be taken care of.” This can even be more complex if your assets are stored offshore, which is recommended for better asset protection.
To meet this need, SMA provides secure vaults in Switzerland and Panama, 24 hour security, and will coordinate sales and shipment of metals to the end buyer. While not required, most buyers choose this option. This added convenience and security usually comes at a price above and beyond the purchase of the metals.
However, until December 31st, 2012 and for the first 50 customers, SMA is offering to store the owner’s metals for them, free of charge, for up to 5 years. They are also offering other incentives aimed at helping buyers get started this Christmas season.
• Free storage and 24 hour security for up to 5 years
• Free 1oz. Gold Eagle Coins, valued at over $1750, for certain qualifying purchases
• Entry into a sweepstakes for hotel and airfare to either Panama or Switzerland to visit their assets.
