Ofi Invest Precious Metals
Make your portfolio glitter!
Precious metals – gold, silver, platinum and palladium – are now used in many industrial applications in the automotive, electronics, chemicals and jewellery and other sectors. Their applications include low-carbon-emission technologies. What’s more, against a backdrop of economic uncertainties and geopolitical tensions, “safe haven” assets such as gold are highly sought after to counter volatility on the financial markets. We therefore see precious metals as a source of investment opportunities.

SILVER, A HIGHLY CHARGED METAL
Manufacturing alone accounts for a total of 49% of total silver demand(1), and demand could be boosted further by low-CO2-emission green technologies.
Production of photovoltaic panels, for example, accounts for 12% of global demand, a quantity that could quadruple over the next 10 years(2).
In the automotive industry, metal is used mainly in the electrical connections of vehicles’ electronic systems. Each electrical impulse in a modern car that starts the engine, opens the windows or adjusts the seats is activated by silver-based contacts.
