Private Customers

With TRADIUM, You Can Expand Your Portfolio With Otherwise Inaccessible Physical Assets: Rare Earths

In 2011, TRADIUM opened up rare earth trading to private customers. Since then, this side of the business has grown steadily. Our unique ability to serve industrial and private customers allows both groups to benefit equally.

A New Market Opportunity

TRADIUM’s main business is supplying the industry with strategic metals such as rare earths. However, private customers can also purchase strategic metals from TRADIUM as physical assets, just like gold coins or real estate. If customers wish to liquidate their holdings, TRADIUM will buy them back at the current market price. Profits can be made by buying and selling at the right time.

Save on Customs Duties and VAT With Rare Earths

As industrial materials, TRADIUM’s rare earths are exempt from VAT and customs duties. They must be stored in the duty-free warehouse of METLOCK, a sister company of TRADIUM. Storage is available to private customers for a fee. Depending on regional laws, further tax benefits may apply.

Store Safely, Liquidate if Necessary

TRADIUM stores its rare earths in METLOCK’s high-security warehouse, which offers bank-level security in a converted World War II bunker centrally located in the Rhine-Main area. METLOCK’s services are also available to private customers. In addition to storage for rare earths, METLOCK also rents lockers.
