The symbol is XRH0, it's traded on London Stock Exchange (LSE).
If your broker doesn't support LSE, you would need broker that does. I use Interactive Brokers.
I had never considered owning rhodium until today when I found out this physical-backed ETF is available. Yes I was aware of the Kitco pool account and the sponge, neither is ideal and with huge spreads.
Currently XRH0 is bid 205.63, ask 208.63, trades at about a 6% premium. So let's suppose XRH0 maintains its 6% premium, for each ounce that you buy, if you have to sell immediately, you lose only $30. This versus losing at least $100 with the Kitco arrangement.
Don't get me wrong, I am appreciative of our host provides. But they really could do better on Rhodium, such as providing a Rhodium coin at a reasonable premium, I would buy it!

XRH0 has a 0.95% annual expense ratio. So for each year of holding it, you automatically lose nearly 1%. This is a bit more than the typical 0.65% expense ratio of other precious metal trusts.
