1. Palladium investments: ETFs
Palladium-backed exchange-traded funds (ETFs) track palladium like an index fund, but trade like stocks on an exchange. Examples of palladium ETFs include the Sprott Physical Platinum and Palladium Trust (ARCA:SPPP) and the Aberdeen Standard Physical Palladium Shares (ARCA:PALL).
The Sprott Physical Platinum and Palladium Trust was created to invest and hold substantially all of its assets in physical palladium and platinum bullion. The trust [currently holds](http://sprott.com/investment-strategies/physical-bullion
-trusts/platinum-and-palladium/net-asset-value-premium-discount/) 53,002 ounces of palladium and 24,090 ounces of platinum. The portfolio is held in custody at a federal crown corporation of the Canadian government.
The Aberdeen Standard Physical Palladium Shares is designed to track the performance of the palladium price, less expenses. It holds over 130,000 ounces of palladium in London at a secured vault belonging to JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE:JPM).
