  • Pininvest Analysis

Precious Metals ETFs are vastly different investment vehicles and performance expectations should be adjusted accordingly

  • strategic metals are the talk of the town, with cobalt, nickel and lithium flying high in the tail wind of battery powered vehices - check our Cobalt theme and our Lithium abundance themes for details
  • the attention benefiting gold funds - strong in uncertain times - will not distract from their structural differences (mature vs junior gold, physical vs 'paper' gold, leverage) - measured on volatility and performance

SPDR Gold Trust GLD/NYSEARCA - with AUM exceeding $35bn - is the benchmark of our Precious Metals theme 

Our ETF Basic Materials themes present cross-industry views of price trends – in terms of the natural resource involved,  exposure to commodity markets and leverage. We hope to achieve a fair coverage of ETFs in each category, which is a work in progress

We do not receive any commission or other form of compensation from the providers included in our 'Funds' presentation
