Gold ETC



Boost Gold ETC is a fully collateralised, UCITS eligible ETC. The ETC provides a total return comprised of the performance of the NASDAQ Commodity Gold ER index, which reflects an investment in front-month gold futures, plus the interest revenue earned on the collateralised amount. 

For example, if the index rises by 1% over a day, then the ETC will rise by 1%, excluding fees. However if the index falls by 1% over a day, then the ETC will fall by 1%, excluding fees.

The NASDAQ Commodity Gold ER Index is designed to reflect an investment in front-month COMEX Gold commodity futures contracts, rolling monthly out of the expiring front-month contract and into the next front-month contract. The index measures excess return performance based on the futures price performance and the roll return. However, the ETC provides a total return performance which also includes the interest revenue on the collateralised amount.
