They are the future; they belong in every portfolio - Special metals
Security through tangible assets
Gallium, Indium and Germanium are not ancient tribes, but the names of some very interesting special metals. Like the rare earth group, they are also essential for the production of many high-tech products. Thus they move increasingly into focus by investors who want to diversify their portfolios to hedge the risk by adding tangible assets.
These investments are not always made of paper

This contrasts with many high-tech industries such as automotive, electronics, energy and aerospace, which rely on the use of special metals.
