The U.S. Global GO GOLD and Precious Metal Miners ETF (GOGO) launched earlier this year on the Toronto Stock Exchange, holding 28 precious metals names with an emphasis on North American royalty and streaming companies. U.S. Global Investors, together with its Toronto-based subsidiary Galileo Global, decided to bring its expertise in the gold industry to Canadian ETF investors, after launching GOGO’s “sister ETF” in June 2017, under the ticker symbol GOAU on the New York Stock Exchange.
Galileo Global chief investment officer Samuel Pelaez spoke recently with Investing News Network to discuss the opportunity that GOGO presents to the Canadian market, and touches on why this ETF is challenging both the GDX and GDXJ.
