Who We Are
SMH Schweizerische Metalhadels Panama SA (SMH Panama) was established in 2010 by private investors wanting to adopt the successful business model from SMH Schweizerische Metallhandels AG Switzerland (SMH Switzerland) for the American Market. SMH Panama entered into a franchise agreement as a Franchisee with SMH Switzerland in order to povide its clients the successful business model where hard earned assets can be saved from any financial crisis.
Under this model, instead of selling metals in substantial amounts to industrial clientele, they split metals into smaller quantities, allowing individuals to own them physically while securely storing them in the Zurich and Panama City duty free zones.
SMH Panama and SMH Switzerland are completely separate and independent entities who share neither personnel nor are they connected in any legal form with the exception of a franchise agreement and a warehouse contract.
SMH Panama S.A. has clients from all over the world and the business is growing rapidly as more and more individuals are seeking a safe haven for their hard earned assets.
What We Do
Our Business is not Stocks, Bonds, Share Certificates, ETFs or Futures Contracts.
Our Business is the future – Rare Strategic Metals!
One of the most crucial basic necessities for all of the world’s industries and vital to new future technologies.
Seven years ago Schweizerische Metallhandels Panama S.A. realized that there was a growing need for people to exchange their paper cash into real assets such as metals. In partnership with some of the most reputable metal traders in the world, we are able to offer rare strategic metals to the general public, for the first time, as a contingency to secure and preserve wealth.
Not so many years ago, these metals could only be purchased by manufacturers or metal traders because they are sold only by the metric ton (2,204.6 lbs). SMH Panama S.A. has established this opportunity for individuals to secure and preserve wealth through our rare strategic metal “Baskets” in smaller quantities.
Since then our group have converted about US$250 million of devaluing cash into real metal assets for the benefit of Europeans and Americas alike. Rare strategic metals present the stability and potential for growth that you should be seeking from your investments, average 12% value increase per year, last 4 years..
Together with our suppliers, we have selected specific rare industrial metals that are in high demand by industry and have allocated them into separate “Baskets” that we believe have the most upside potential for gains in value over the next 5 to 7 years.
In the long term you will benefit from the rapid growth of the world’s developing countries by trading cash that is devaluing for physical material assets that are increasing in value, in the form of rare, technology-based, industrial metals. We represent the opportunity to counteract the negative effects of inflation on the value of your cash. Inflation and devaluation of any paper currency is a reality in today’s world. The diminishing supply of these rare strategic metals is only going to insure that they increase in value and further enhance the value of your assets.
Now is the time to convert your devaluing cash into real rare strategic metal ownership!
