Gold funds provide returns closely in-line with the return provided by the price of gold.
We do not think of gold as a good long-term investment avenue and therefore we believe that investors can avoid these funds altogether.
But for those retail investors who'd still prefer to invest in gold, we believe that the Sovereign Gold Bond Scheme offered by the Government of India is a better alternative. This scheme offers a guaranteed return of 2.5% per year over and above the return provided by the price of gold, though the investment cannot be redeemed before a tenure of five years.
