Gold can add value to your portfolio


Adding gold investments to your portfolio brings diversification and greater stability to your overall portfolio. One of the unique traits of Gold is that it can help you beat inflation. This is because, as inflation rate increases, so do gold prices. In the last 10 years (01 Jan 01 to 31 Dec 10), gold investments have given a growth of 17.3 % CAGR whereas the average inflation rate has been 5.6 % CAGR.

Convenience to buy in small quantities: ABSL Gold ETF allows you to buy Gold in quantities as low as 1gm. This is done in form of Demat units where each unit approximately represents the value of 1 gm of Gold. So, you do not have to accumulate a large amount of money before you go out to buy gold.


Easy loan against Gold: Since you own gold in Demat form, its purity is never in question and you can easily avail a loan against your units from any gold financing company or a bank.


Tax Efficiency: When you own physical gold, you have to pay the applicable wealth tax as long as you hold the gold. Also, short term capital gains tax is applicable if you sell physical gold within 3 years of purchasing it; as against just 1 year in case of ABSL Gold ETF.


Sell your investment with ease

ABSL Gold ETF will invest your money to buy physical gold and will aim to grow your money in line with the domestic spot price of gold as much as possible. It will be listed on the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) and National Stock Exchange (NSE) where you can sell units at prevailing market prices. The amount will be directly credited to your bank linked to your demat account.

So, make your investments shine with Aditya Birla Sun Life Gold ETF.
