Xetra-Gold exceeds mark of 1,000 deliveries

About 4.9 tonnes of gold have been delivered to mostly private investors since Xetra-Gold has been introduced 11 years ago.
8. October 2018. FRANKFURT (Deutsche Börse). Since the introduction of Xetra-Gold (ISIN: DE000A0S9GB0) in 2007, more than 1,000 investors have opted for delivery of their physically deposited gold. The total volume currently amounts to a total of 4.9 tonnes.

For every single Xetra-Gold certificate, exactly one gram of gold is deposited in the central vault depository for German securities in Frankfurt. On request, investors can however have their securitised gold delivered to their custodian bank. Especially private investors make use of this option.

With current gold holdings of 179.1 tons, Xetra-Gold is Europe's leading gold-backed security. At the beginning of the year, holdings were at 175.0 tonnes. The holdings always increase when investors buy Xetra-Gold certificates via the stock exchange. Of all ETPs traded on the Xetra venue, Xetra-Gold is the security with the highest turnover. In the first half of 2018, order book turnover amounted to €1.29 billion.

Profits from the sale or redemption of Xetra-Gold after a minimum holding period of one year are not subject to withholding tax, as announced by the German Federal Fiscal Court in September 2015. Thus, the acquisition and redemption or sale are to be assessed for tax purposes as a direct acquisition and sale of physical gold - such as gold bars or gold coins.
