Over the first three months of the year, users of Morningstar.co.uk have shown a clear and present demand for gold. This is evident by our list of most-searched-for ETFs on the website in the first quarter, where five of the top 10 are exchange-traded products tracking physical bullion or gold securities. But that’s not the only interesting trend to emerge so far this year.

It is very interesting to see several Vanguard ETFs on the list. This could be a warning for other, not so low-cost ETF providers.

“Quite clearly gold is still at the forefront of our readers’ minds, which suggests a certain degree of mistrust in the equity rally,” commented Jose Garcia-Zarate, a senior ETF analyst at Morningstar. It’s also apparent that “those interested in equities are favouring US and emerging markets for their obvious better prospects compared to developed Europe,” said Garcia-Zarate.
