Strategic Metals Supply Chain and Investment

In this episode we talk to Louis O’Connor, Founder, and Principal of Strategic Metals Invest about the fascinating world of strategic metals.

These are the metals and oxides required to keep our modern technology working and that are essential to the green transformation in energy and transport.

Strategic metals constitute both a strategic supply chain challenge and an investment opportunity and Louis' company, Strategic Metals Invest, is the only industry supplier in the world to offer private investors the option to purchase and profit from owning Strategic Metals.

The investment proposition is pretty much the same as investing in precious metals, but instead the investor is purchasing strategic metals that have an intrinsic value for industrial applications.

In this interview, we find out from Louis exactly what strategic metals are, what they are used for, where they come from and why they are becoming an asset class of interest to investors.

  • The Importance of Supply Chain Partner Relationships

    The awareness of the importance of international supply chains has grown in recent years, not just among the business fraternity, but more widely in the media, among politicians and ordinary citizens as well. Because of the multiple crises that we have endured such as COVID, Brexit, War in Ukraine and geopolitical tensions with China people now understand much better that it is the correct functioning of these complex supply chains that keeps the show on the road.However, what may people may still not fully appreciate is just how many supply chain partners are involved in bringing even a cup of coffee to their breakfast table and how the correct functioning of these supply chains depends fundamentally of the quality of the relationships between these myriad supply chain partners - producers, buyers, processors, distributors, retailers and logistics service providers.In this conversation with my colleagues Lisa Anderson and Elizabeth Warren from the Supply Chain Special Interest Group of the Society for the Advancement of Consulting (SAC) we explore this fascinating field of supply chain relationships and just how essential they are for the correct functioning of our modern economy.
  • Life After Globalisation

    In this episode of Interlinks, I explore how the world is fragmenting geo-politically in the 2020s in quite surprising ways, and the fact that many businesses have not quite twigged the implications of this reversal in globalisation for the design and operation of the international supply chains that they depend upon to compete.I delve further into what "life after globalisation" might look like and how companies should be equipping themselves to deal with this if they hope to continue to thrive and prosper in that world. In many cases, the supply chains that we built over the last thirty years in the period of peace, stability, and expanding globalisation that say its heyday between 1990 and 2010 will not serve us so well in the future. We are going to have to dramatically reconfigure our supply chains for security, redundancy, agility, and resilience looking to the future.
