Canara Robeco launches new gold fund

PTI Mumbai | Updated on November 15, 2017

Asset management company Canara Robeco has launched a fund-of-fund scheme called Canara Robeco gold savings fund, where the customers can invest in gold.

The new fund is an open-ended fund-of-fund scheme which will invest predominantly in units of Canara Robeco gold ETF, the AMC said in a release today.

“Given the current global uncertainties, gold is fast becoming an alternative asset with increasing demand from several central bankers and investors globally.

“In the domestic market too, rising investment demand, increased risk aversion and high inflationary conditions favour gold as a good investment option for the next few years,” Canara AMC investment head, Mr Ritesh Jain, said.

The minimum investment in the fund would be Rs 5,000. The scheme opens for subscription today and closes on June 18.

Canara Robeco is a joint venture between state-run Canara Bank and the Holland-based Robeco, which is an asset management specialist.
