Manifesto: A blueprint for white metals in dark days

Tuesday 8th September, The Penn Club, New York

In 2015, SFA (Oxford) held a working lunch for players working in the PGM value chain to launch the latest edition of The Platinum Standard led by Stephen Forrest discussing the changing dynamics of the platinum market and his PGM manifesto to help players ride out the platinum bear market. Stephen's presentation addressed the market influences and uncertainties, speculative positions, the historical platinum price and bear markets, price risks, producer economics and risks to supply for platinum, palladium and rhodium.
