The ETF Investor - Episode 15 - Gold ETFs and the debenture structure
By Nerina Visser, CFA
In this episode we focus on gold investments, and how gold ETFs in particular, give you easy and safe access to the yellow metal whose perceived value dates back at least to Biblical times. For South Africa as a country, an economy, and indeed, a stock market which was built on gold, this is fundamental. Add to this its performance in 2020, and you’ll see why this topic is so important and relevant. We also explore the debenture structure, and how it is different from a CIS - a unit trust.
