Metals used in National Defense are at critical supply levels according to the British Geological Survey and US Department of Energy

Swiss Metal Assets facilitates, for both Individuals and Institutions, the conversion from a devaluing currency into the physical ownership of high demand 'Strategic and Precious Metals', in allocated and segregated accounts. Swiss Metal Assets also is able to exchange the metals into any currency upon liquidation.
The military is critically dependent on technology metals for secure communications, weapons guidance, surveillance, drones and other battlefield technology. The military however, instead of catalyzing the supply and taking a priority position, is now simply another customer waiting in line. There have been multiple studies done by both the US Department of Energy and the BGS (British Geological Survey) showing how critical the supplies of the rare industrial metals have become.
Recognizing this, Swiss Metal Assets is pleased to announce the addition of the highly coveted "DEFENSE" Basket of 5 Strategic Defense Metals to the SMA Metals Platform.
This basket of rare industrial metals contains:
Rhenium, used in stealth aircraft, jet engine parts and missile propulsion.
Tantalum, used in chip capacitors for weapon systems.
Indium, used in laser tracking, night vision, high speed imaging and target recognition.
Gallium, used in military and aerospace communications.
Tungsten, used in kinetic energy projectiles, penetrating armaments and armor.
The British Geological Survey has given Tungsten a score of 8.5 out of 10 on its critical scale, 10 being the highest. Rhenium and Indium both scored a 6.5 out of 10 on the critical scale. Tantalum scored a 6.0 out of 10 on the critical scale and Gallium scored a 4.5 out of 10 on the critical scale.
Parties seeking to hedge their currency exposure or supercharge their IRA through SMA's Metals Platform will receive an Introductory Price PLUS 5 Years Free Storage at the duty & tax free "Entrepot" in Switzerland for a limited time on the Defense Basket.
