I have the honour of welcoming you to the website of SBI Sons of Bavaria Investment AG. SBI has been designed to offer fractional ownership in mining-operations to metal-processing operations, thereby bridging the gap between the mining industry and the metal processing industry.
Why do we do this?
If you are buying metals for your production process with regular frequency, wouldn´t it be favorable to own a share of a mine that is actually producing the raw materials you need to help guarantee secure supply of production-critical metals? For example, in early 2018, metal processing operations buying large amounts of cobalt approached cobalt mines directly to purchase the metal straight from the mine.
Why did they do that?
Because companies that are dependent on a reliable supply of metals such as cobalt want to make sure that the right amounts of cobalt they require for their production will be available to them even if markets for cobalt dry up or prices increase sharply or unexpectedly. But not every metal-processing operator has the capacity to purchase materials straight from the mine.
So what should you do?
Take a look at our website and decide what is right for you and your future purchasing and hedging strategies. And maybe - become a part of our network. You are cordially invited to join.
