A Rare Look Inside the SPDR Gold Trust Vault

September 1st, 2011 by ETF Store Staff

As gold surges to new record highs and the popularity of physically backed gold ETFs continues to grow, CNBC’s Bob Pisani brings us a fascinating look inside the London vault where the gold backing the world’s largest ETF is held.  Conspiracy theorists have claimed that the most popular gold ETF, the SPDR Gold Trust (GLD), doesn’t actually own or hold physical gold.  Hopefully, Mr. Pisani’s journey inside the GLD vault will alleviate any concerns investors may have and conspiracy theorists can focus their attention on something with a little more substance.
