About Rupen Raithatha

For the past three years Rupen has worked as a PGM (platinum group metals) analyst for Johnson Matthey, a precious metals refiner and fabricator. During this time he has followed developments in the 'investment' sector, an area of demand that has become particularly challenging, as well as increasingly important, with the advent of physically-backed ETFs in recent years. More recently, he has added the Chinese platinum jewellery market to his areas of responsibility. Rupen contributes to Johnson Matthey's respected biannual industry review, the Platinum Book, and is also responsible for long-term demand-side forecasting.

Rupen holds a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) degree in Economics and Government from the University of Manchester, as well as a Master of Arts degree in International Relations from the University of Warwick.
