Gold funds that invest in the metal
Investors can get gold exposure through mutual funds and exchange-traded funds. The value of funds with the most direct exposure follows the price of gold. The expense ratio is used to pass on the cost of sustaining physical supplies to investors. There are some drawbacks: Because some gold funds are classified as collectibles, they are not eligible for the lower long-term capital-gains rates enjoyed by equities. Furthermore, because they do not create revenue, the expense ratio can eat away at the principle year after year.
