What is the main objective of investing in this fund?

The primary investment objective of the scheme is to provide returns that are in line with returns provided by Tata Gold Exchange Traded Fund. However, there is no assurance or guarantee that the investment objective of the scheme will be achieved.

Speaking at the launch, Anand Vardarajan, Business Head - Institutional Clients, Banking, Alternate Investments and Product Strategy, Tata Asset Management said, "When you don’t know the risk, diversify. When you know the risk, hedge it. Precious metals like gold and silver help investors in hedging their risk and also diversify their portfolios. It offers the ability to hedge against inflation and currency fluctuation and at the same time, being differently co-related, it helps in providing hiding space when equity and debt markets turn volatile. If most of the gold is above the ground and only less is to be unearthed, then this becomes a great asset class to be owned. Limited supply coupled with rising demand for gold makes a great case to have it in one’s portfolio."
