Make wiser investments in Gold

Gold funds

“Gold has two significant shortcomings, being neither of much use nor procreative”
-Warren Buffett

One of the most prominent investors of our time, Warren Buffett is known for his advice on investments is telling people to trade in anything but “gold”. However, we Indians love gold and just cannot let it go. It would be hard to find a person who has not invested in gold in one form or another. There are those who buy gold jewelry for different occasions like weddings, festivals, etc., while others look to make a profit.
“Gold is not an investment at all!” said the Vanguard founder and former CEO, John Bogle in an interview with CNN. “Gold is speculation. It has absolutely no underlying intrinsic value,” said the American investor, who is known for promoting Mutual Funds. An investment that only recently became popular among the average investor for its low-cost and high earning schemes.
Did you know that you can invest in gold through Mutual Funds? This investment vehicle collects the money and invests in physical gold without the hassles of storage and low yield. There are two ways you can go about it. One is to invest Gold Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) and the other is to simply invest in Gold Funds. Let’s see how they differ from each other :
