That brings us back to the fundamental question; should mutual fund investors look at Gold ETFs? Again it is not about a choice between mutual funds and gold ETFs but it more about looking at gold as a distinct asset class to hedge the risk. We believe that gold ETFs should become a necessary part of your mutual fund asset allocation. An exposure to gold ETFs will not only give you a better hedge against the risk of equities and debt but also provide alpha at a time when the margin of safety in debt and equity is limited. Instead of purely focusing on MF SIPs, expand your asset profile by adding a SIP on gold ETFs. As gold continues to gain value in volatile times, the phased approach to gold ETFs will ensure that you get the best of gold price volatility. The time has come for gold to emerge once again as a credible asset class. An SIP on gold ETFs could be your gateway to participate in this gold story.
