Fortescue Future Industries is the talk of the ASX today, but market watchers may be disappointed to learn they can’t invest directly into the company.
However, there is a way to get a slice of Fortescue Future Industries in your portfolio. Though, it involves buying its parent company, Fortescue Metals Group Limited (ASX: FMG).
At the time of writing, an investor can get their hands on a share in Fortescue Metals for $14.60. That’s 2.46% higher than the company’s stock’s previous closing price.
The Fortescue Metal share price has potentially been boosted by news of Fortescue Future Industries’ new hydrogen investment.
Buying into Fortescue Metals would mean indirectly investing in Fortescue Future Industries’ newly announced Global Green Energy Manufacturing Centre.
The first stage of Global Green Energy Manufacturing Centre will create Australia’s first multi-gigawatt-scale electrolyser factory. Electrolysers can remove hydrogen from water and, if run on renewable energy, can produce ‘green’ hydrogen – a zero-carbon fuel source.
Of course, investing in Fortescue Metals means investing in all aspects of Fortescue Metal’s business, not just Fortescue Future Industries.
