PHILADELPHIA, PA, February 22, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- In Europe and around the world, many financial markets remain uncertain, as economic turmoil continues to leave many investors uneasy about the future. As such, many global investors are changing their approaches to portfolio diversification--and, according to one recent study, more and more investors are increasing their commodities allocation. The study, conducted by ETF Securities, finds that, in 2013, senior investment professionals from across Europe are planning to increase the percentage of their portfolios allocated to commodities, focusing particularly on industrial metals such as copper. This study has won the attention of HB Group

The recent study compiles the results from four different surveys, which encompass responses from more than 300 financial decision makers from across Europe. The study reveals that more than 40 percent of these investors plan to allocate eight to 10 percent of their portfolios to commodities in the year 2013.
The survey also finds that, among the investors who are uneasy about global financial markets, most point to the U.S. and its budget concerns as the single greatest economic concern; only about a third of those surveyed claim that Europe's financial issues are of greater concern.
The surging interest in industrial metals--and copper, in particular--stems from the most recent flows into the ETF Securities physically backed Copper ETC, which revealed net inflows of $28 million for the week of January 14. This represents the largest inflow since December 2010.
