  2. Technology metal to be listed is placed in Custody with an accredited third-party custodian. ​
  3. TM2 lists the technology metal on the primary market.​ 
  4. Registered and verified members are able to buy the primary issuance. ​ 
  5. Instant settlement, with 1:1 physical backing. Metal balances are transferred to the investor’s treasury on purchase. Metal and cash balances are seamlessly transferred between the primary and secondary market.

Global access & Direct Title

TM2 is growing its Issuer and resource base globally to connect investors directly to technology metals issuers.​

TM2 has a strategic and growth plan to rapidly drive our expanding footprint. TM2 is building liquidity by creating and unifying the global technology metals markets.

Many of the technology metals TM2 lists have few or any alternative direct trading venues especially for the institutional user. The only other alternatives available today consist primarily of products that only offer indirect exposure. By contrast TM2 is a direct title and direct marketplace for technology metals that are fundamental and unique inputs into the 21st century product supply chain.
TM2 is a direct title and direct investment market into the metals that will see the largest supply/demand tension and are likely to become some of the most dynamic asset classes in the coming decades.
