Platinum as a bearer of value
Investment platinum is one of the most valuable precious metals in the world. It is rare and the demand for it is growing.

Platinum has a much shorter history in the financial sector than gold or silver. Its annual production is only about 250 tonnes (equivalent to about eight million Troy ounces). Approximately 70% of the global platinum mining takes place in one place – South Africa. Its cost is determined by the cost of mining in the long run, which increases year after year. Mining costs are growing at approximately the same rate as the demand. Platinum is widely used in both the jewellery industry and the automotive industry. Roughly half the annual production of this precious metal is used to produce catalytic converters for cars. Bars and coins are produced from platinum for investment purposes. Purchase of platinum bars or platinum coins can diversify a portfolio in the long run.

One of the most valuable precious metals

Due to its rarity and unique features, platinum is perfectly suited for the production of delicate jewellery. It is much harder than gold and is used for setting with valuable precious stones.

Crucial for the automotive industry

Up to half of the annual platinum production is used to produce catalytic converters for cars and fuel cells. It is also used as a material for surgical instruments.

Growing demand

The demand for platinum has increased particularly due to its use in industry. However, as the investment sector grows stronger, especially in Asia. Platinum mining  increased by 70 tonnes year-on-year between 2000 and 2013.

DIRECTOR OF THE BANK OF ENGLAND, 1937
Lord Josiah Charles Stamp

„The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is perhaps the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Bankers own the earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create money and control credit, and with the flick of a pen, they will create enough money to buy it back again. Take this great power away from the bankers and all the great fortunes like mine will disappear, and they ought to disappear, for this would be a better and happier world to live in. But if you want to continue to be the slaves of bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create money and to control credit.“
