Silver ETF Overview

Silver ETFs provide exposure to silver prices through derivatives or actual stores of silver as well as the equity of the silver miners. Similar to gold, because silver has been used as a unit of exchange throughout history, investors consider silver a safe haven asset in times of distress. However, silver has a large number of industrial uses as well.
