Risk profile: High-risk

Investment focus: Passive tracking of the gold price

Expat Gold is a national exchange-traded open-ended fund that passively tracks the price of gold. It is suitable for investors seeking an easy access to financial instruments which track the movement of the price of gold in order to diversify or hedge their investment portfolio.

Expat Gold passively tracks the price of gold by seeking to replicate as closely as possible the movement of LBMA Gold Price PM Index, calculated and published by the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) (https://www.lbma.org.uk/prices-and-data/precious-metal-prices#/table).

The fund is listed on the Bulgarian Stock Exchange (ticker GLDX) where individual non-professional investors are able to trade it.

The indicative net asset value of the ETF (iNAV) can be found here.



  • Low investment threshold. Expat Gold is traded on the Bulgarian Stock Exchange at a minimum volume of one share, which makes it accessible to both big institutional investors and small individual investors.
  • Liquidity. For individual investors, the fund will be traded on the Bulgarian Stock Exchange where market-makers will maintain quotations and will guarantee the ability to buy and sell shares at any moment. The primary market for purchase and redemption of shares is also open every day to larger qualified investors.
  • Lower transaction costs. In the most common case, the Bulgarian investors could get lower costs from trading this instrument on the BSE in comparison with the transaction costs for buying and safekeeping other foreign gold funds, to which they have access.
  • No capital gains tax. Capital gains (profits) from instruments traded on the Bulgarian Stock Exchange are exempt from taxation in Bulgaria.

Expat Gold has a high-risk profile, classified under the 5th (out of the 7) category of the risk indicator providing that commodities and precious metals are highly volatile and their value could sharply rise or fall. Past performance is no guarantee of future performance, and the value of investments can go down as well as up, leading to a significant loss of funds as a result. The profit is not guaranteed, and investors bear the risk that they may not receive the full amount of the invested funds. The investments in a mutual fund or through an investment account are not insured by a guarantee fund or in any other way.

Eligible investors can buy and sell their shares directly from and to Expat Gold in the primary market, while all investors can trade the ETF's shares on the stock exchange (the secondary market).
