Palladium bars are highly valued for their tangible asset status and vital industrial applications, especially in the automotive sector. Investing in palladium bars can be a strategic way to diversify your investment portfolio, offering a hedge against inflation and currency devaluation, while also capitalizing on the metal's growing demand in various industrial uses.
What is Palladium?
A member of the PGM group (Platinum Group Metals), palladium is renowned for its corrosive resistance and high melting points - two qualities that make it a suitable material for catalytic converters in petrol vehicles.
What is the price of palladium going to be in the future?
No one can predict the future price of palladium or any other precious metal with any accuracy. However, despite its volatility, the price of palladium has seen significant increases over the years, due to high demand and limited supply. Purchasing palladium bars means you are investing in a commodity that is not only rare but also has intrinsic value in industry.
Whether you choose to buy a 100 g palladium bar or 1 oz palladium bar in the UK or elsewhere, they can be an attractive option for diversifying investment portfolios.
What influences the price of palladium?
The price of palladium fluctuates and is heavily influenced by trends in the automotive sector, so it’s a good idea to keep an eye on news about car sales, production forecasts and changes to emission standards. However, the palladium price can also be impacted by supply constraints.
Should you invest in palladium bars or palladium coins?
This depends on your investment goals, budget and preferences. Whatever you choose, all of our palladium bars and coins are fine palladium (.9995 purity), which is the standard for investment bars and coins.
Palladium bars are often preferred for long-term investment due to their bulk value, making them a solid choice for wealth preservation. Coins, while possibly higher in premium due to collectibility and design, offer easier resale and liquidity, appealing to investors looking for flexibility with their investments.
Storing palladium bars
When you buy palladium in the UK, you’ll need to think about how you’re going to keep them safe. You may want to consider a safe in your home but it might also be worth storing them in a professional facility instead, such as a secure vault.
Our secure Swiss storage facility is insured against theft, damage and loss, and is never accessible to the public.
