RT
The European parliamentary vote brought new faces to the seats of power, and parties long unknown rose to popularity. Eurosceptics have become a formidable political power. In Britain, people threw their support to UKIP, which says that leaving the European Union for good would be the only right decision for the United Kingdom -- but will the nation really go so far? What will happen to the EU if Britain waves goodbye? Today we ask these questions to a member of UKIP and European Parliament. David Coburn is on SophieCo.

China National Gold Group Corp. is on the hunt for acquisitions and partnerships, the mining company's president said, possibly becoming a kingmaker in the beleaguered industry.
Xin Song said he recently talked about potential partnerships with Barrick Gold Corp., the world's largest gold producer. ...
Mr. Song said that his company, China's largest gold-mining concern, is searching for opportunities in gold, silver and copper. ...
He said the company's current preference is for assets in countries near China, such as Mongolia, Russia, and in central Asia. It also is looking for acquisitions in developed countries such as Canada, Australia, and the U.S. A third option is in developing countries, including in Africa and South America. "The political situation has to be stable," he said. ...

Goldman Sachs paperizes India's largest gold ETF: GATA | THE GATA DISPATCH -June 17, 2014-.

Goldman Sachs paperizes India's largest gold ETF

Provision to Invest in Gold Deposit Schemes Introduces Credit Risk to Such Funds
By Sachin P. Mampatta
Business Standard, New Delhi
Tuesday, June 17, 2014
MUMBAI -- Gold exchange traded funds (ETFs) have a new element of risk. These schemes, which earlier held physical gold equivalent to the unit holders' investments, now lend a portion of these as part of a government move to meet gold demand through domestic sources.
This means they no longer directly hold all the gold their investors have paid for. This introduces an element of credit risk to these funds, experts say.
Goldman Sachs Asset Management runs India's largest gold ETF. It issued a note to investors last month that the risk profile of the product had changed. "A situation could arise where the issuer is unable to return the principal physical gold to GS Gold BeES (their scheme) upon maturity or in case of an early redemption. Such inability to return physical gold could arise on account of liquidity problems or general financial health of the issuer," the note said.
This, in turn, poses a risk to unit holders in the mutual fund scheme. "GDS (gold deposit scheme), being an unlisted and non-transferrable security, can be redeemed only with the issuer and, hence, is subject to the risk of an issuer's inability to meet principal and interest payments on the obligation (credit risk)," it added.
Dhirendra Kumar, chief executive officer of fund tracker Value Research, said the nature of the gold ETF had changed. "So far the situation was that the underlying (product) was gold, and now the gold is lent to someone else. The lending norms are stringent but, still, the moment you lend, how the gold will circulate and the process of replenishing the stock as required add some complexity to the fund," he said.
Niranjan Risbood, director of fund research for Morningstar India, said the risk was minimal in a benign market but could be magnified in extreme situations. "I don't think it will have a significant impact in terms of risk, especially since the institutions they are lending to include entities such as the largest bank in India. It is only in extreme cases of liquidity crises, where investors are rushing to redeem in large numbers, that there would be a risk," he said.
Indian gold ETFs continue to be more conservative than their global counterparts, according to Risbood. International ETFs offer the option of investing in gold derivative contracts and take leveraged positions on gold, he noted. Indian gold ETFs can invest up to 20 percent of their assets in gold deposit schemes, according to the SEBI circular on the matter. However, they invest a lower proportion in such schemes, the data shows.
For example, consider the Goldman Sachs Gold ETF Fund, and the R*Shares Gold ETF. These manage a little more than 50 percent of these assets. They had invested 4.6 percent and 1.4 percent of their assets in gold deposit schemes, respectively, according to May-end figures available on the websites of the two asset managers.
There are currently 13 gold ETFs in existence [in India], with total assets under management of Rs 9,039 crore, according to June figures from Value Research.
