AAAU Fund Description

AAAU tracks the gold spot price, less expenses and liabilities, using gold bars held in a vault in Perth, Australia. Investors can redeem their shares for gold coins and small bars.

AAAU Factset Analytics Insight

AAAU is a low-cost option for investors seeking exposure to physical gold, and may also appeal to those who want the option to redeem for physical gold, or are particular about where their gold is held. The fund’s gold is vaulted in Perth, Australia, under the custody of the Perth Mint, which is wholly owned by the state of Western Australia. Furthermore, investors can redeem their shares for gold products as small as 1 gram—though note that large minimum fees make it impractical to redeem smaller quantities. As with any physical gold investment, investors should be aware of the potential US tax consequences—long-term gains in AAAU are subject to the higher collectibles tax rate. At launch, shares of AAAU corresponded to 1/100th of an ounce of gold (though this will decrease over time due to expenses), or about the same amount as competitor IAU. This low handle should be helpful for those investors placing small orders, but could be a deal-breaker for those paying per-share commissions. AAAU is among the cheapest gold ETFs available, though retail investors should be sure to consider trading expenses in their cost calculation.
