Users of our information include private and professional investors, company management, pension funds, sector specialists and investment managers seeking to study gold and strategic metal ETFs, managed funds and Private Equity capital pools.

Metals are used in almost every aspect of modern society, from transport to energy, housing to healthcare and are required for adapting to a low carbon economy in the fight against climate change. Precious metals have an established and ageless use as money, while new applications for medicine, battery technologies and the electrification required to migrate the world’s energy infrastructure away from carbon require metals and metal types which were previously considered only peripherally but which today command a new importance for investors and entrepreneurs.

MineralFunds.com supports 11 ETF (Exchange Traded Fund) and ETC (Exchange Traded Commodity) types covering precious and strategic metals and mining for precious, strategic and battery metals.
