The gold and silver investment opportunities can be used to diversify portfolios and secure long-term stability, the release said. Gold, historically a hedge against currency devaluation and market uncertainties, serves as a wealth preserver. Silver, witnessing surging demand in EV technology and green energy industries, may potentially appreciate due to its scarcity, Tata fund house said.

Anand Vardarajan, Business Head at Tata Asset Management, highlighted the significance of these metals in hedging risks, diversifying portfolios, and safeguarding against inflation and currency fluctuations. "If most of the Gold is above the ground and only less is to be unearthed, then this becomes a great asset class to be owned. Limited supply coupled with rising demand for gold makes a great case to have it in one's portfolio," Vardarajan said.

The year 2023 saw an increase in the number of Gold ETF schemes from 11 to 13, with a total of 48,33,807 Gold ETF folios by the end of October. While the funds mobilised remained relatively stable throughout the year, notable spikes were observed in July, August, and October.
