As a precious metal, Silver has always found a place of significance in the Indian culture. However, investing in Silver in its physical form may pose challenges with respect to corrosion over time, safety, purity of the metal, liquidity risk etc. Thankfully, investors can opt to gain exposure to the precious metal via an ETF (Exchange Traded Fund) that aims to generate returns in line with the performance of physical silver in domestic prices, subject to tracing error. Investors who do not have a Demat account can gain exposure by investing in Silver FoF (Fund of Fund).
A versatile metal, Silver has widespread usage across multiple sectors, thereby creating a unique opportunity for investors. A testament to its growing importance is that it has gained increased acceptance even in industries like Bio Pharma and Medical Technologies, Power Generation and Clean Energy, and Electric Vehicles and Mobility Technologies by powering new-age technologies to solve global challenges. Furthermore, Silver not only provides diversification to the portfolio but also has the potential to provide a hedge against inflation. One of the key factors that make the economic outlook of silver promising is the expected rise in its demand going forward outpacing supply.
Chandresh Nigam, MD & CEO, Axis AMC said, “Silver’s interesting proposition wherein it has the ability to act as an industrial commodity as well as a precious metal is one of the key factors that we believe will drive its significance. Now that investors have access to investing in Silver via ETFs, it will further increase the metal’s value as a promising asset class in the future. With the launch of Axis Silver ETF and Axis Silver FoF, we aim to seamlessly integrate available market opportunities with an investment strategy that allows investors to gain distinctive exposure to the metal. The new scheme’s approach aligns with our philosophy and we believe, will be a notable addition to our portfolio of products.”
