ETF Securities Reports Biggest One-Day Gold Inflow Since Financial Crisis

Demand for safe haven ETPs rise as uncertainty continues. Last week saw long gold, silver and long CHF recording strong inflows of US$433.5mn in total. Inflows into gold ETPs of US$263mn on Friday 1st July were at their highest since inception. Gold and the Swiss Franc have historically been sought after for their safe haven traits allowing investors to hedge portfolios from downside risks. We expect demand for haven assets to remain elevated as uncertainty surrounding the UK’s leadership contest and its formal exit from the EU block remain high. While the Bank of England is preparing for more monetary policy easing, Deutsche Bank and Santander failed the US Federal Reserve stress test again, keeping investors nervous.
