WE PROVIDE EUROPE'S LEADING RANGE OF GOLD ETPs:
1. Physically backed gold ETPs, Bloomberg, September 2018
Synthetic gold ETPs do not hold the underlying assets (gold) that the ETPs are designed to track. Instead the issuer enters into a swap agreement with a counterparty that contracts to provide the return of the underlying gold.
Short & leveraged gold ETCs provide short and leveraged exposures to gold futures. For example a 2x Daily Long Gold ETC is designed to reflect 200% of the daily percentage change in the Index level.
