Gold has a long tradition as an investment. Gold is considered to be a robust investment in times of crisis, as inflation protection, and has historically benefited from a weak USD and extreme interest rate situations. Particularly in mixed portfolios, gold regularly shines out as an excellent diversifier in volatile markets.
Are you looking for a simple and secure way of investing in the precious metals gold, silver, platinum and palladium? Then focus on the right solutions with ZKB Precious Metal ETFs, because we are the market leader with the largest ETFs in the precious metal sector in Europe.
Zürcher Kantonalbank launched its first gold ETF in Europe in 2006 and in doing so sent a strong signal in terms of innovation. The ZKB Gold ETF has established itself as the largest gold ETF in Europe, underscoring our long-term commitment in this area.
With our precious metal ETFs, you can invest easily and directly in precious metals. Purchasing them is as easy as it is for shares. Our ETFs are listed on the Swiss Stock Exchange and have a high level of liquidity.
Our ETFs only purchase gold and silver that meet the "LBMA Standard". The LBMA (London Bullion Market Assocation) sets an internationally recognised standard for bullion, e.g. in terms of weight, fineness, quality and origin. The refineries are subject to strict rules and are also regularly audited by the LBMA.
Since 2012, purchasing is done in accordance with "Responsible Sourcing". The aim is to ensure the "integrity" of global delivery chains in the physical gold and silver market and the compliance of various guidelines, for example by refineries approved by the LBMA. This must identify, among other things, risks concerning issues such as failure to respect human rights (incl. child labour) during the production, transport or trade of gold, money laundering or improper declaration of the precious metal's origin.
