The London-listed mining companies constitute a large portion of the trust and the top ten holdings make up around 62.3 per cent of its assets.

What do the experts like?

Graham Spooner, investment research analyst at The Share Centre, said: 'The trust is one of the largest of its kind. 

In these troubled times the exposure to gold, which has been increased over the last year to 26.2 per cent of total assets, has been of benefit.'

Any downsides?

Spooner adds: 'Coronavirus has had a negative impact on demand and supply along with the outlook for the global economy, which is a key driver for the sector.'
