Hedge funds (and their clients) investing in gold should be aware of the differences among competing gold investment products. Gold appeals to different investors for different reasons, and different gold investment products can be more or less responsive to the investor's motivations. Hedge funds should be mindful of these differences, and may wish to balance the ultimate client's motivation for holding gold with the fund manager's motivation to buy gold in the form most amenable to the hedge fund's trading and investment practices. Due diligence goes beyond such abstractions as the gold price, particularly if gold as a "safe haven" is part of the investor's purchase motivation.
