Important Notes:

  1. Purpose of the post is not to prove that Gold savings fund will perform better than ETF.It will mostly depend upon how much capital will fund manager deploy in ETFs.Currently nearly 98% fund is deployed in ETFs and remaining in cash and money market instruments.Expense ratio of resepective schemes is incorporated in NAVs.
  2. Equivalant NAVs of Gold saving funds are declared on next days.But this factor may be in favor of ETF investor as well as Gold fund investor.
  3. There will be buy/sell brokerage charges for ETFs and applicable exit loads for gold funds depending upon the scheme.Effect of theses parameters have not considered.
  4. My personal opinion is that gold funds will be better performers in falling market as there is not 100% capital invested in the gold market.
  5. Above dates have taken for calculation purpose and may or may not be available for investment.
  6. Please take advice of certified professional before investing in any of the instruments.I am not responsible for any errors / omissions in the above calculation.
  7. This post was prepared on 13th Feb 2012 so NAV values till 10th Feb have considered..there is not any other purpose of consideration of NAV dates upto 10th feb only..
