Gold Fund

A gold fund is a fund which focuses on gold as an asset class. It builds exposure to gold through either investing in physical gold itself, gold related derivatives e.g. futures, or even stocks in companies that are involved with gold (e.g. mining, processing, production, sales). Gold funds and gold ETFs are use by investors who want an exposure to that commodity/asset class, and is favored by those seeking an inflation hedge or hedge against currency risks.
