List of Global Gold Mining ETFs Listed on U.S. Exchanges

Global gold mining ETFs are one of the larger categories in our global sector category. This is not surprising as there are a lot of investors interested in gold and where there is a demand, ETF providers will provide an ETF, or in this case over a dozen. Many investors are interested in Gold Mining ETFs because of an interest in the industry or the belief that a certain selection of gold mining companies will outperform the spot price of gold. In addition, for many gold-focused U.S. investors there are possible tax advantages to investing in gold mining companies (which are taxed as any stock investment) versus gold bullion investments (which are sometimes taxed at a higher rate). Naturally, check with your tax professional on this particular point.
