ICICI Prudential Gold ETF

Investment Objective

  • The scheme directly invests in physical gold and instruments with gold as underlying.
  • It is passively managed and closely tracks domestic gold prices derived from the London Bullion Market’s AM prices.
  • The scheme does not engage in any activities designed to obtain a profit from, or to limit losses, caused by changes in the price of gold.

Key Benefits

  • Affordable: The cost of investing in the scheme is much lower than buying, storing and insuring physical gold. Through the scheme, gold can be bought and sold in small quantities - as low as 1 unit of the scheme (approximately equivalent to 1/10th gram of gold).
  • Liquidity: Unlike jewellery, coins or bars, units of this scheme can be liquidated (depending on market volume) as per requirement of the investor.
  • Reliable: The scheme aims to purchase gold of 99.5% purity or higher.
  • Diversification: Adding gold to your investment portfolio can be a good way of diversification as generally it has been observed that gold is capable of outperforming whenever the equity market underperforms.

This product is suitable for investors who are seeking* :

  • Investors looking to invest in gold in a cost-efficient manner.
  • Investors aiming for liquidity or the capability to convert their investment into cash easily.
  • Investors seeking to create wealth over the long term.

*Investors should consult their financial advisers if in doubt about whether the product is suitable for them.
