This improves the long-term growth potential of Silver and can benefit investors who invest into commodities but currently don’t look beyond Gold. Investing through an ETF and Fund of Fund, gives investors a low-cost investment option and the advantage of liquidity,” said D P Singh, Deputy MD & Joint CEO, SBI Mutual Fund.
