SGOL Fund Description

SGOL tracks the gold spot price, less holding costs, using gold bars held in a vault in Zurich.

SGOL Factset Analytics Insight

Ultimately, investors in gold ETFs invest because they don't want to hold or store the gold themselves. SGOL is only different to the extent that you care where your gold is stored, offering the assurance of gold bars sitting in Swiss vaults. That is the premium investors are paying for. Gold is gold, so SGOL is a perfect Fit for the spot price of gold. The fund enjoys terrific primary and secondary liquidity, which makes it easy to enter and exit the fund. SGOL charges a reasonable fee for a no-frills gold fund, though it's not the cheapest fund out there, and its structure as a grantor trust means that long-term gains are taxed at the higher collectibles rate.
