will be banking on.
The UK company is hoping to match the success of its first US offerings, which have so far garnered over $1.3 billion, according to a Reuters report
. ETFS has four metal-backed ETFs trading in America, including its first, the ETFS Physical Swiss Gold Shares
, which launched in September 2009, and two platinum-back funds which debuted in January. Its ETFS Physical Platinum Shares
fund manages $521 million, while the ETFS Physical Palladium Shares
ETF is worth $270 million.
ETF Securities chairman Graham Tuckwell
told Reuters he is considering additional products for the US market.

The company manages about $17 billion in assets globally and has an array of commodity funds, backed not only in precious metals, but also in commodities such as cocoa, hogs and copper.
