South Africa's Answer To Precious Metals - ETF Developer - Kitco News
Kitco News talks about precious metals ETFs in South Africa with Vladimir Nedeljkovic of Absa CIBW. "We listed our first commodity ETF [NewGold] in South Africa in 2004," Nedeljkovic says. "In the South African market we have about $5b of investments in ETFs...slightly more than half of the investment in commodity ETFs."
