INVESTING IN GOLD - THE ORIGINAL HEDGE AGAINST UNCERTAINTY


Gold's role as a hedge against uncertainty and inflation is well established, so as the macroeconomic outlook remains brittle we expect investor demand for gold to remain strong. The following resources provide an insight into the current factors affecting gold, how the price is calculated and how to invest in gold.

WE PROVIDE EUROPE'S LEADING RANGE OF GOLD ETPs:

Gold exchange traded products (ETPs) are a simple, cost-effective, flexible and transparent method to invest in gold, but not all gold ETPs are the same.

Diverse variety of gold ETPs with physical, hedged, short & leveraged variants

1. Physically backed gold ETPs, Bloomberg, September 2018


Securities are backed by physical bullion, and in the case of WisdomTree's physical gold ETCs the bullion is held by the custodian within a secure vault and inspected twice a year by an independent entity.

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.

Currency hedged physical gold ETCs enable GBP or EUR investors to gain exposure to the gold spot price with a daily currency hedge against movements in the GBP/USD or EUR/USD exchange rates. Such products may appeal to investors concerned about currency exposure, which will often be a consideration with commodity ETCs that are typically based in USD.
