8 Best Gold Mutual Funds 2021

Updated on June 16, 2021 , 169522 views

Gold has emerged as an important asset class in most portfolios given its ability to grow with Inflation and protect the portfolio from volatility caused due to a financial and economic crisis.

Today, gold as an investment is available in many forms such as- physical gold, E-Gold, etc. But, Gold Funds have emerged as one of the most popular routes for gold investments. So, let’s have a close look at some of the best Gold Mutual Funds to invest in 2021.

Indians are very culturally inclined towards buying gold, whether for ornamental purposes or even for wealth creation. Also India being the country of various festivals all year round, investors always look at buying gold. While earlier physical gold used to be the choice, Gold Mutual Funds are clearly better in every aspect (except for ornamental purpose where once needs to buy physical gold), with benefits like minimum investment amount, diversification, no Demat account required, SIP growth, etc.

Gold Mutual Funds is a variant of Gold ETFs. A gold ETF (Exchange Traded Fund) is an instrument that is based on gold price or invests in gold bullion. A gold ETF specialises in Investing in a Range of gold securities. Gold Mutual Funds do not directly invest in physical gold but take the same position indirectly by Investing in Gold ETFs.

Also, the minimum investment amount one would require to do in Gold Mutual Funds is of INR 1,000 (as monthly SIP). Since this investment is made through a Mutual Fund, investors can opt for systematic investments or withdrawals too. As Gold Mutual Funds units can be bought or sold from the fund house, investors do not face liquidity risks.

How are Gold MFs Taxed?

Gold mutual funds are taxed based on Capital gains made and holding period. If you are holding the fund for less than 3 years, then the capital gains will be taxed as per your income tax slab rate. And, if you've held the fund for at least 3 years, then you have to pay tax at 20%, with indexation benefits, on the Capital Gain made.
