The SBI Exchange-Traded Funds (ETF) Gold is a mutual fund scheme that invests in gold and gold bullion. The scheme aims to keep a tab on the price of gold and like any other stock, the units of this fund can be purchased or sold via the National Stock Exchange (NSE). The fund was introduced by SBI Mutual Fund with an objective of providing returns corresponding closely to the returns offered when investing in physical gold.

Physical gold as an investment option does offer good returns to the investor but it also comes with the hassle of storage and safety risks.

Much like a person can encash by selling gold, the investor in the SBI ETF Gold fund can encash his/her stocks by selling the units on the stock exchange.

Why you should invest in SBI ETF Gold

  • Transactions are easier - Units of SBI ETF Gold can be bought and sold at any time provided that the stock exchange is open. Since GST rates do not apply to gold ETFs, units can be bought from any part of India.
  • Easy trading - The purchase and sale of units of SBI ETF Gold are easy and follow the same procedure as trading in equities. 1 unit of gold ETFs is equivalent to 1 gram of gold and to invest in a gold ETF, investors can approach a stockbroker or fund manager.
  • Safe investment option - There is no chance of theft in gold ETFs and since gold rates do not often fluctuate, it is a risk-free investment option.
  • Can be used as a security collateral - Like physical gold can be pledged as a security while borrowing money from financial institutions, the same can be done with a gold ETF.
  • Economical - As there is no entry or exit system involved in the trading of gold ETFs, you will not need to pay any load charges. Only 0.5% to 1% of the brokerage fee needs to be paid during purchase or sale of units.
  • Portfolio diversification - If you wish to diversify your investment portfolio, gold ETFs can be a good bet. A diversified portfolio will offer better returns during unstable market situations by hedging the risks.

Tax benefits - Since gold ETFs do not attract wealth tax or securities transaction tax, investors can enjoy long-term capital gains.
