2020: A remarkable year for gold ETFs

Adam Perlaky
Senior Analyst, Americas

On many levels, gold ETFs had a remarkable year in 2020. In this video, I break down our latest gold ETF data and commentary, and discuss some of last year's highlights. 

Key takeaways include 

  • Globally, gold ETFs had record annual net inflows of US$47.9bn, or 877t
  • All regions registered significant growth in AUM – more than the foreign reserve holdings of any central banks except for the US
  • While flows reversed late in the year, early signs in 2021 point to a continued trend of an overall increase in gold investment demand via gold ETFs.
