Palladium as an Investment
Palladium is a precious metal of more recent vintage, and has recently become a popular option as the material used in some engagement rings. According to Wikipedia, it's status as a precious metal came about right around World War II as a substitute for white gold. It is still used today on its own merits, or in an alloy with gold.
Palladium in engagement rings aside, we give no advice to the suitability of palladium in a investment portfolio - please consult an advisor to discuss if palladium is an appropriate option for your investment portfolio.
