Invest in Gold ETFs with DEGIRO

Are you interested in gold or believe that a gold ETF would be a good fit for your portfolio? Investing in ETFs is an easy way to increase the diversification of your portfolio.

On our platform, you will find a wide selection of gold ETFs. Not every gold ETF is the same. ETFs differ from each other in several ways, such as fund size, price, risk and underlying value. For example, they may track different companies or indices. Also, some may pay dividends and others may not.

These are the top five most traded gold ETFs by our clients in 2021.

What is an ETF?

ETFs, also known as trackers, are funds that follow the performance of an index, commodity, bond or composition of products. Unlike some other funds, ETFs are bought and sold on a stock exchange. Would you like to learn more about ETFs? Read our ETF article for all you need to know.

Gold

Gold was one of the first commodities used as a means of capturing value. As early as 3,000 BC, a unit of value was linked to gold in Egypt. This made gold the first official medium of exchange for international trade.

Gold is one of the most popular precious metals. Today, the commodity has many applications. Of course, for jewelry, but gold is also used in certain electronics and aerospace.

Often gold is seen as a solid investment: it is assumed that gold will always represent a certain value and there will always be a supply and demand for gold.

Why invest in gold ETFs?

Investing in gold ETFs means you can invest in the gold market without owning physical gold. Usually, gold ETFs either track the performance of companies in the gold industry or the price of gold itself.

Like investing in gold directly, investing in an ETF that tracks the gold price can be a good way to balance a portfolio. In times of economic stagnation, investors often seek refuge in gold. When more gold is bought up by investors, the gold price rises.

Investing in ETFs that track companies in the gold industry, such as gold mine operators, have yet another dynamic. A disappointing turnover, lack of innovations or declining orders can affect the price. However, because you invest in multiple companies in the gold industry, a setback at one company doesn’t have a major impact on the overall ETF price. By investing in a gold ETF, you can spread the risk.
