BGLD - FT Gold Strategy Quarterly Buffer ETF

FT Gold Strategy Quarterly Buffer ETF logo BGLD is an exchange-traded fund (ETF) managed by First Trust Advisors. The ETF seeks to provide investors with exposure to the price of gold while providing a level of downside protection through a buffer strategy.

The ETF uses a structured investment strategy that seeks to protect against the first 10% of losses in the price of gold while still allowing for potential gains up to a cap. This means that if the price of gold falls up to 10%, the ETF should absorb the losses and protect the investor's capital. However, if the price of gold falls more than 10%, the ETF will experience losses, but those losses will be limited to the buffer amount.

As of September 2021, the BGLD ETF had total net assets of around $630 million and was invested in a diversified portfolio of gold-related instruments, such as gold futures contracts and other gold-based derivatives.

In terms of performance, BGLD has delivered solid returns since its inception in July 2018, with an annualized return of around 10% as of September 2021.
