Investing in gold ETFs
Investing in gold is possible through an Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) without requiring you to purchase actual gold assets. It is a fund that is invested in various gold-backed securities. While some gold ETFs only follow or replicate the changes in the price of actual gold, others could also contain derivatives that are backed by gold or stocks of gold miners. The ETF’s performance is contingent upon the underlying asset, which also determines the fund’s value.
