ETF Securities, which has pioneered the offering of exchange-traded commodities on the London Stock Exchange and other leading European markets, will set out the investment case for gold and other precious metals in the latest of the firm’s series of conference calls for financial industry professionals.

The conference call, which will be conducted in English, will be held on September 27, at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. GMT. The discussion will cover ETF Securities’ gold ETCs offering, the investment case for gold, investment considerations for the four major precious metals platinum, palladium, silver and gold, precious metals basket security, and the investment application for precious metals.

ETF Securities has now listed more than 40 ETCs on the London Stock Exchange providing exposure to commodities including gold, corn, hogs and zinc. The firm launched the world’s first physical ETC precious metals platform in London in April, allowing investors to trade platinum, palladium, silver and gold individually or as a basket, and attracted assets of more than USD60m within a month.

The precious metals ETCs have subsequently been listed on Deutsche Börse, Euronext Amsterdam, Euronext Paris and Borsa Italiana, and the range has been extended from the physical precious metals products to include three other ETCs, ETFS Gold, ETFS Silver and ETFS Precious Metals DJ-AIGCI, that track the Dow Jones-AIG Commodity Indices, which replicate a total return from investing in precious metal futures.

Interest in precious metals, and especially gold, has grown significantly as a result of the debt and equity market turbulence in July and August, ETF Securities says, with the physical gold ETC experiencing a 240 per cent increase in assets over the past seven weeks as a result of significant investor interest in gold and increased knowledge about commodities investing. Total assets under management in gold-backed ETCs now exceeds USD300m, out of more than USD500m invested in precious metals ETCs overall.
