Colossal central bank purchases, aided by vigorous retail investor buying and slower ETF outflows, lifted annual demand to an 11-year high. Annual gold demand (excluding OTC) jumped 18% to 4,741t, almost on a par with 2011 – a time of exceptional investment demand. The strong full-year total was aided by record Q4 demand of 1,337t.

Monthly ETF Commentary

Physically-backed gold ETFs saw their holdings fall by 110t in 2022, down 3% y-o-y and equivalent to outflows of US$3bn. This reflects an interesting year for gold ETFs, in which demand surged during the first four months – as geopolitical risk took centre-stage – before steadily giving back these gains as aggressive rate hikes dominated the narrative. At the end of 2022, global gold ETF holdings stood at 3,473t (US$203bn), 11% off the all-time month-end tonnage high of 3,919t in October 2020.
