Introducing the Defense Industry Strategic Metals - Swiss Metal Assets

Money Matters The military is critically dependent on rare strategic metals for secure communications, weapons guidance, surveillance, drones and other battlefield technology. The military however, instead of catalyzing the supply and taking a priority position, is now simply another customer waiting in line. There have been multiple studies done by both the US Department of Energy and the BGS (British Geological Survey) showing how critical the supplies of the rare industrial metals have become.

Recognizing this, Swiss Metal Assets is pleased to announce the addition of the highly coveted "DEFENSE" Basket of 5 Strategic Defense Metals to the SMA Metals Platform. This metals basket is offered exclusively through Swiss Metal Assets SA in Panama City, Panama. (more)

This basket of rare industrial metals contains:

  • 1. Rhenium, used in stealth aircraft, jet engine parts and missile propulsion.

  • 2. Tantalum, used in chip capacitors for weapon systems and mobile devices.

  • 3. Indium, used in laser tracking, solar, night vision, high speed imaging and target recognition.

  • 4. Gallium, used in military aerospace communications, solar and touch screens.

  • 5. Tungsten, used in kinetic energy projectiles, penetrating armaments and armor.

The British Geological Survey annually ranks metals according to their scarcity, difficulty of sourcing and production. In 2011 the BGS has given Tungsten a score of 8.5 out of 10 on its critical scale, 10 being the highest. Rhenium and Indium both scored 6.5 out of 10 on the critical scale. Tantalum scored 6.0 out of 10 on the critical scale and Gallium scored 4.5 out of 10 on the critical scale.

Swiss Metal Assets facilitates, for both Individuals and Institutions, the conversion from a devaluing currency into the physical ownership of high demand ¨Strategic and Precious Metals¨, in allocated and segregated accounts. Swiss Metal Assets also is able to exchange the metals into any currency upon liquidation. The US Federal Reserve, the EU and now the China National Bank are continuing to offer low interest rates to help bolster their respective economies. One of the side effects is inflation and rising costs of commodities. The coming decade looks to be an exciting time for people who are invested in commodities like rare strategic metals.
