    Hi

    I am looking to invest into something like below but struggling to find a uk registered msci silver tracker fund, i contacted hl but they said these are only available in the US. Does anyone know any brokers or places i can buy this?

    I'd ask yourself whether you really need to invest in something that's not easily available.

    Rather than a tracker, why not buy the real thing. Fresnillo, a Mexican company and the largest silver producer in the world is in the FTSE100 so the shares are easy to buy.

    (And I know that the OP probably isn't going to be diversified in a general sense, unless this investment represents a small part of a generally diversified portfolio.)
