Ways to invest in palladium
There are numerous different methods you can use to get your hands on palladium. These include buying the metal directly in bar or coin form, owning shares of palladium-related stocks, or even getting a stake in a mutual fund that’s focussed on precious metals.
Keep reading to learn more about all these different approaches. The links provided below take you to individual pages which explain each one in more detail.
What is palladium?
Palladium is the most valuable of the world’s precious metals, topping $2,300 per ounce in December 2020 due to a worldwide shortage in the commodity. In addition to being a valuable store of currency, palladium is also used in fuel cells for cars and trucks, and other industrial uses.
If you want to learn more about palladium and other commodities, we have a dedicated commodities news section on our website. Check it out and read through some of the content to better inform your commodity investment decisions.
How to invest in palladium
We’ve put together a list of palladium investment options, so you can pick the method that suits your financial needs and investment goals. For more information, click the links to our guides in each section.
- Palladium futures. These are contracts that serve as a formal agreement between two parties to buy or sell palladium on a set date in the future at a predetermined price. Make sure to read our guide to investing in commodities and our lesson on futures before getting involved.
- Palladium options. These are contracts that enable investors to bet on if the price of palladium will increase or decrease. Holding such a contract gives you the option, but not the obligation, to buy (a ‘call’) or sell (a ‘put’) palladium in various forms.
- Palladium stocks. Another way to invest is through shares of companies that focus on palladium mining, production and manufacturing. Make sure to conduct fundamental analysis before purchasing a stock, so you know exactly what you are buying.
- Palladium ETFs. Some generic examples of ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds) are NASDAQ ETFs, and there are also multiple ETFs that specifically follow the price of palladium. By investing in an ETF with an interest in palladium, you stand to benefit when palladium prices go up, without having to physically own any actual palladium bars.
- Palladium mutual funds. A mutual fund pools money together from a large number of investors. An individual called a fund manager then invests this money into different things with the aim of achieving a certain return for their clients. Mutual funds that include palladium are likely to include other precious metals stocks. They can be a good way of gaining exposure to the price of palladium without having to do as much of the analytical groundwork yourself.
