“The Metals Exploration Fund offers a twin-exposure to investors that are seeking for mining companies related to: Monetary metals (Gold, Silver and Platinum) that protect against dislocation in financial markets, periods of persistent high inflation and waning confidence in central banks. Industrial metals (Copper, Zinc etc.) that benefit from re-industrialisation, energy transition and infrastructure. Explorers, but also developer and junior miners are known to be the big outperformers during metal bull trends.” — Urs Gmür
