Gold exchange traded funds have been among the best performing assets of the year as volatility pushed investors toward safer assets and global central banks implemented aggressive monetary policies to support growth and fight deflationary pressures.
On an upcoming webcast this Tuesday, A Golden 2016: Where Does Gold Go from Here?, Imaru Casanova, Senior Analyst at VanEck, Axel Merk, President & CIO of Merk Investments, and Brandon Rakszawski, Product Manager at VanEck Global, will take a look at the current gold market conditions and consider ways for investors to diversify into gold for the changing markets ahead.
Investors interested in the gold asset have a number of options available, such as the Van Eck Merk Gold Trust (NYSEArca: OUNZ). However, OUNZ is structured a little differently than its competitors.
OUNZ seeks to provide investors with a convenient and cost-efficient way to buy and hold gold through an ETF while also providing investors the option, if they desire, to take physical delivery of the metal. OUNZ is the only ETF that provides its patented, physical gold delivery option.
Investors have been drawn to OUNZ not only for a simple way to access to gold, but also its unique feature that enables investors to take delivery of their gold. Some investors have elected the option of taking delivery of their gold – deliveries for as little as one ounce may be requested.
