Can one invest in this NFO?
Gold has been one of the biggest outperformers of most of the asset classes, recently and can be still considered for investing. Hence, investors who don’t have exposure to Gold ETFs, can consider investing in this fund.
There are many other Gold ETFs like Gold Bees, Rel Gold etc which are currently traded in NSE, which can also be considered for investments.
