Open heart surgery is performed in Chicago. A turbojet lands in Dubai. A nuclear reactor is tested in India. A Rio teenager uses her cell phone. LED lights turn on in a London pub.
None of these events could take place without the use of certain rare strategic metals (RSMs). National Geographic calls them “the secret ingredient in almost everything.”
Now, imagine you have expert information on buying and selling RSMs, with access to safe storage in a specialized, Swiss, free-trade zone warehouse. You have a private representative looking for opportunities and negotiating on your behalf, like the major industrial and government players, who deal in these metals, do right now.
The described scenario is exactly what ASI has developed for you through an offshore alliance.
Owning rare strategic metals is an uncompromising way to hedge market volatility.
Price is ruled by supply shortages and growing demand from energy, defense, healthcare, aviation, tech, and consumer goods sectors. This gives you immunity to factors buffeting your securities and even your precious metals.
For example, in November 2015, a single lot of tin sold for $78,000, and a single copper lot sold for $139,000. In December 2015, the same quantities sold at $95,000 and $150,000, respectively.
There is a hidden world of significant rare metals that you could never access, or ever even have known of, without our sources and information.
To give you a taste, here are 3 top opportunities in RSMs:
1. Ruthenium is one of the rarest metals on earth. It is part of the platinum group along with rhodium, palladium, osmium, iridium and platinum. You won’t find ruthenium traded on any exchange.
Ruthenium is currently priced at a historical low. Yet, its demand rose by 50% in the electronic industry and by 40% in the chemical industry in the past year. Ruthenium is also used to remove H2S from oil refineries, for the production of ammonia from natural gas and for the production of acetic acid from methanol.
2. Rhodium is a byproduct of refining copper and nickel ores which can contain up to only 0.1% rhodium. Rhodium is also not traded on any exchange. About 85% of the metal goes into catalytic converters for cars, with extensive use in reflectors for searchlights, jewelry, the BP-Monsanto process, furnace windings, high-temperature thermocouple and resistance wires, aircraft spark plugs, bearings and electrical contacts.
3. Rhenium is used for super alloys – for blades in turbine engines and rocket motors. The metal is also used to create lead-free gasoline, x-ray anodes and for plating jewelry. Rhenium does not occur in a free uncombined state. Since it is the second rarest metal in the Earth’s crust, no mineable rhenium ore has been found.
The profit potential for insiders is clear. Here is how the program works:
Privately Negotiated Pricing: For most RSMs, there is no standard pricing source. ASI will negotiate buy/sell prices for you, as only an expert with immediate access to the metals can do. Different industries require different grades, and there are only a few reliable suppliers of RSMs worldwide. We have one!
Unprecedented Availability and Access: Rarity means scarcity. For example, one RSM, hafnium, is very difficult to acquire. Here too, prices are negotiated and not standardized, mainly due to the highly sensitive requirements of industrial specifications.
Hafnium and its alloys are used for control rods in nuclear reactors and nuclear submarines. Nuclear energy is burgeoning worldwide. You can guess what is happening to the hafnium market – supplies are dwindling and prices are rising.
If you do nothing else, call me while we still have a small allocation of hafnium available for you. This opportunity will not last.
The Nuts and Bolts of the RSM Program:
This cannot be emphasized too strongly. We have arranged a private program for you. It all starts with a phone call for a confidential discussion.
- You’ll discover the best current buys and understand their profit potential.
- When it comes time to purchase, ASI negotiates the best price and arranges offshore storage at the customs facility.
- Your holdings are allocated to you with an unbroken chain of custody. Every step, from the producer to the storage facility in the Swiss free-trade zone, is accounted for and documented.
- Once the metals are placed into storage, you receive a certificate of ownership and access to your physical holdings any time you choose to visit the warehouse.
- When you sell, you can choose to be paid in a variety of currencies, as well as the U.S. dollar. RSMs are semi-liquid, meaning it can take a few weeks to find a suitable buyer.
- If you want immediate liquidity, we have added base metals like tin and nickel to our suggested RSM mix. These are regularly traded, so you receive proceeds within a few business days.
