This ETF invests in and index consisting of futures contracts on the commodity of platinum. Platinum is one of the rarest metals on earth, found in even smaller quantities than silver or gold. Though it receives less attention from investors than other precious metals, platinum is an interesting option because it is used widely in a number of industrial applications; most notably, this metal is a key component of automobiles. About half of the supply of platinum goes towards emission control devices for automobiles; as a catalyst it allows for the combustion of unburned hydrocarbons from the exhaust into carbon dioxide and water vapor. Jewelry and electronics are other significant end uses, and platinum is also used in certain dental applications and thermometers. PGM affords investors the opportunity to gain exposure to this metal without the complications of owning a futures account. That being said, PGM is not for everyone, and should only be bought by those who truly understand how it works. For those who have done their research, PGM will make for a great way to gain exposure to one of the rarest elements known to mankind.
