The passion of Indian people for gold has been known for centuries. Not only does this special yellow metal have a high perceived value, but it also has a strong emotional connection.Gold in form of jewels, gold coins or bars frequently come at a huge price due to its manufacturing costs. For many days, it is also the most common investment products.Trading gold in physical form supports Gold ETFs as security, which means you buy gold at the back-end when you buy a Gold ETF. This gives investors a guarantee of gold purity.
  • As the gold price increases, so does the cost of Gold ETFs, and vice versa. As a consequence, it does not compromise on purity and is therefore available across the country at a standard price.
  • Because ETFs are related to direct gold prices, the transparency of trade is growing. It is an investment at low risk.

Benefits of Investing in Gold ETFs

  • Free Market – As they are public, everybody can keep track of gold prices on the stock exchange. Without any trouble, you can test the gold prices for the day or the hour.
  • Simple Transactions – At any time of day when the stock exchange is open, you can trade your gold ETFs.
  • Economic – Since there are no entry or exit charges for gold ETFs listed on the stock exchange, you are only required to pay nominal brokerage charges.
  • Secure Resource – The prices of gold are not very fluctuating. So even if your stock returns are down, gold ETFs will cover you against huge losses.
  • Collateral Security – If you plan to take a loan, your gold ETFs can also be used as collateral security.

How much gold is to be allocated?

IFAs may allocate approximately 10-15% of the entire portfolio of their client / investor to gold through a long-term investment horizon Gold ETF.

Gold should play its position as an active diversifier of portfolios, a store of value in economic uncertainty, and a long-term hedge against inflation.

In the long run, this will be an intelligent and sensible investment strategy.
