COVID-19 Scenario Analysis

In the wake of COVID-19 situation, the first quarter of 2020 has been exceptionally difficult for the gold derivatives and futures market. When markets recovered, however, those losses were more than offset with significantly better performance. Despite facing losses during the first quarter, gold derivatives and futures have managed to return a fair percentage of the combined three-quarter performance on an average.

Investors redeemed more than planned in 2020 due to COVID-19, as the pandemic made cash a premium for a variety of investor types, including hospitals and healthcare systems. At the same time, the pandemic disrupted investors' allocation process. Attributed to the difficulty in conducting operational due diligence under quarantine and social distancing, many investors opted to stick with existing gold derivatives and futures relationships last year rather than establish new ones.
