Xetra-Gold surpasses 80 ton mark in gold holdings

News 15.06.2016

Increase of more than 35 per cent since the beginning of the year

The amount of gold held in custody by Deutsche Börse Commodities GmbH to back the exchange-traded commodity Xetra-Gold today has reached the new record of 80.18 tons, an increase of more than 35 per cent since the beginning of the year. For each Xetra-Gold share, exactly 1 gram of gold is stored in the central vault for German securities in Frankfurt.

Among the 185 exchange-traded commodities (ETCs) tradable on Xetra, Xetra-Gold is by far the most successful in terms of turnover. During the first nine months of the year, order book turnover on Xetra stood at more than €1.06 billion. Xetra-Gold currently has almost €3 billion in assets under management (AuM).

In September 2015, the Federal Fiscal Court (Bundesfinanzhof) had ruled that after a minimum holding period, any profits from the sale or redemption of Xetra-Gold are not subject to the capital gains tax. From a fiscal point of view, the purchase, redemption or sale are thus to be treated just like a direct purchase or sale of physical gold, such as in gold bullions or coins.
