Rhodium, Ruthenium and Iridium
Investors have largely ignored these platinum metals. This is mainly attributable to the lack of investment products, but in part also to strong and sometimes unpredictable price fluctuations. And unlike the four main precious metals, they are not traded heavily enough on the international financial markets to ensure sufficient liquidity.
The three metals are by-products of platinum mining. South Africa accounts for nearly all of the world’s supply. These are rare metals indeed. Only about 25 tons of rhodium and ruthenium and just 4 tons of iridium are brought to the international market every year. In view of their many different industrial uses, these quantities are no more than the proverbial drop in the bucket.
