Within the ETF universe, Gold ETFs continue to gain popularity as the number of offerings has grown to more than 30 Gold ETFs trading in the U.S. today. Gold ETFs are popular because they are managed by gold experts, allow for instant diversification within a portfolio and are easy to buy and sell. Along with Gold ETFs and ETNs, investors can also trade gold miner ETFs and inverse and leveraged gold ETFs and ETNs. The first US-listed ETF backed by a physical asset was the, which launched in November 2004. Since then, many ETF issuers have entered the space as the demand for gold has increased thanks to golds track record in hedging volatility.

Gold ETFs serve as a good investment vehicle to trade gold, rather than invest in it, since buying and selling physical gold isnt the most efficient and feasible option. Gold ETFs are significant in that they provide exposure to investors by tracking the price changes of the precious metal, allowing for opportunities to profit without owning the physical asset like gold bars or coins. Thus, when an investor redeems a gold ETF, they do not receive the precious metal, but rather the cash equivalent. Gold ETFs can be accumulated in small amounts and are fairly liquid, meaning they can be easily sold.
