  • Gold ETFs see first outflow after March 2023

    Mon May 13 2024


    Gold exchange traded fund (ETF) witnessed a net outflow of ₹396 crore last month, making it the first withdrawal after March 2023, owing to profit booking.

    Despite the decline, the asset under management (AUM) of gold funds rose 5% to ₹32,789 crore at April-end from ₹31,224 crore in the preceding month, according to the data with the Association of Mutual Funds in India (Amfi).


    As per the data, Gold ETFs saw a net withdrawal of ₹396 crore in April as compared to an inflow of ₹373 crore in the preceding month.

    The last time this asset class witnessed net outflow was in March 2023, withdrawing ₹266 crore.

    "In rupee terms, gold has done fairly well over the last year but dwarfs in comparison to how equities have fared. Flows in the gold ETF category have been patchy relative to the equity asset class. That said, investors could have opted to book some profits in this segment which has resulted in the asset class witnessing net outflows," Melvyn Santarita, analyst, Morningstar Investment Research India, said.
