ETFs are often referred to as passive investments. 

What is uranium used for?

Uranium is a heavy metal with a wide variety of applications.

It is used as fuel to power the nuclear reactors that create electricity for commercial use; to create radio-isotopes for medical diagnosis and research; to kill parasites and bacteria in fresh food by the food industry; and for x-ray inspections in the automotive and aviation industries.

In the defence industry, it is used in nuclear weapons, radiation shielding and is fuel for reactors that drive naval ships and submarines.

Uranium and the fissioning of nuclear power results in zero direct emissions. The heavy metal is seen by many as a temporary alternative to fossil fuels while the world transitions to a greener future.
