Upcoming Event: AIChE Dinner Meeting

Hello everyone, and sorry for the long break. As some of you know, I have been busy running “operations” at the International Precious Metals Institute (IPMI) for some time now, on top of my position as Chairman of the Board, and – most of all – on top of my actual job at Sabin Metal Corporation.

Strategic Metals – Staring down a Cliff?

Things are looking up, though, and 2018 will be an exciting year. For starters, I am happy to announce a presentation at the American Institute of Chemical Engineers’ Dinner Meeting on January 16, 2018. The event is hosted by the Metro New York Section of AIChE at the Pfizer building in Manhattan. Please take a look at their website for details and registration info.

I look forward to seeing some of you at the event.

Happy New Year,

The latest on Strategic Metals: Retire Overseas Conference in Orlando, Florida

retire-overseas-conference-logo-2With a month to go, time for a reminder of this event. Strategic metals are still a relatively new investment group for private investors. To provide in-depth information on the metals, their applications and price developments, I will be speaking at the “Retire Overseas” conference in Orlando, Florida, on behalf of Tradium GmbH of Germany.

Tradium is a large industrial wholesaler supplying electronics and technology companies around the world with Rare Earth Elements and Strategic Metals. The company added private investments just a few years ago and backed it up by launching Metlock, a bonded high-security storage facility in Frankfurt, Germany.

The conference is hosted by Kathleen Peddicord and Lief Simon, who for many years have offered services and education surrounding retirement and investment planning.

Looking forward to seeing some of you there!

NY Times: Platinum Demand faces Impact from Electric Car Growth

 

nyt-t-logoThe New York Times just picked up my Reuters discussion from last week. Generally happy to see that the relevance of this movement is gaining foothold in people’s mind. They might have done without the letters “IPMI” in the title. While it’s true that I am the current IPMI chairman, this interview was a personal one and not an official statement by the institute. Here is the link.

New: closed session on security at the IPMI summer conference

Happy to announce that this year’s annual IPMI conference in Orlando, FL, will feature a novel session on security issues relevant to the precious metals industry. The session will be closed, meaning there will be no handouts, and no recordings are permitted.

JW-Marriott-Orlando-Grande-LThe session title is “Hands on Security – forgery, packaging risks and cyber attacks”, session K on Tuesday, June 13 2017. It will be moderated by yours truly as you may have suspected at this point.

The session will break the mold of traditional IPMI sessions including some audio-visuals and lots of room for discussions.
