  • How can I redeem units of GXLD for physical gold?

    To redeem for physical gold, an investor must:

    1. Complete and send a redemption form.
    2. Nominate an unallocated bullion account held with a clearing member of the LBMA to which we will arrange for delivery of the gold bullion.
    3. Pay a redemption fee of $500 and any delivery fee (up to a maximum of $500) – reduced from the amount of gold bullion to be delivered.

    Depending on the quantity of the order, investors may find that selling units in the secondary market is a more cost-efficient option, especially for small quantities.
  • Where is the metal stored?

    The physical gold bullion for GXLD is held in the vault(s) of JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. in London. The vault is audited twice a year by the auditor inspectorate. All audit reports are made available in the resources section above. Each gold bar in the vault is itemised in a bar-list which can be viewed in the resources section above.
  • How is the management fee paid?

    Each unit of GXLD comes with an entitlement to an amount of physical bullion. On the day of fund launch the gold entitlement of each unit will be 1/100th Gold Fine Troy Ounce. On subsequent days, the entitlement per unit of GXLD will be the prior business day’s gold entitlement less management fees (0.15% per annum).
  • How can I use GXLD in a portfolio?

    Gold has a low to negative level of correlation with other asset classes, such as equities and fixed income, and can therefore be used as a tactical allocation to enhance a portfolio’s overall risk/return characteristics through the benefits of diversification.

    Gold has historically performed well during periods of high equity market volatility due to its safe-haven status and can therefore be used as an event risk hedge.

    For centuries gold has been used as a store of value and is independent of the value of any fiat currency. As such, gold is commonly cited as a hedge against inflation.

    Gold can also be used as a strategic investment based on its own fundamentals, which relate to its unique supply and demand characteristics. Supply relates to both mine production and available above-ground stock. Demand primarily comes from:

    • Consumers; in the form of jewellery, bars and coins

    • Industrial users; such as electronics component manufacturers

    • Investors; including direct holders and ETF investors, and

    • Central banks; who maintain large gold reserves
