The debut of ETFs Physical Swiss Gold Shares (SGOL) today pits the new fund, from successful issuer ETF Securities, against existing physical gold ETFs like SDPR Gold Shares (GLD) and iShares COMEX Gold (IAU).Physical commodity ETFs offer investors exposure to physical stores of precious metals like gold, silver and palladium. Each share of the fund represents a fractional ownership in a supply of physical gold held for shareholders in a vault. By owning shares of these ETFs, rather than buying bars of gold, investors can avoid hassles like storage.
