Analyst Report

This fund offers exposure to one of the world’s most expensive metals, platinum. PPLT is designed to track the spot price of platinum bullion by holding bars of the metal in a secure vault, allowing investors to free themselves from finding a place to store the commodity. PPLT is one of the only ways that investors can obtain exposure to the metal beyond buying shares of the few platinum miners, purchasing individual coins, or holding a futures contract on platinum. However, futures contracts encounter roll yield issues and are inherently more expensive and risky than just holding the physical metal. Due to this, PPLT is an excellent choice for investors looking to load up on the precious metal, just don’t let it be the only commodity that you hold as platinum is often highly correlated to the car industry and can be very cyclical.
