Principal Investment Strategy
Under normal circumstances, the Trust will invest at least 80% of the value of its assets in common stocks of global mining companies that derive at least 50% of their revenues from precious metals mining, and shares of ETFs that invest substantially all of their assets in physical precious metals such as gold, silver and platinum. The Trust will invest in both domestic and foreign listed securities. Certain of the common stocks included in the Trust are issued by companies headquartered or incorporated in countries considered to be emerging markets. Please see “Principal Risks” and “Investment Risks” in the prospectus for additional information concerning the risks associated with investing in foreign securities and emerging markets.
Certain of the common stocks included in the Trust are issued by small-capitalization and mid-capitalization companies. Please see “Principal Risks” and “Investment Risks” in the prospectus for information concerning the risks associated with investing in small and mid-cap companies.
An investment can be made in the ETFs held by the Trust without paying the sales fee, operating expenses and organization costs of the Trust.
The Sponsor has selected securities for the portfolio that it believes have the best potential to achieve the Trust’s investment objective. To select the portfolio, the Sponsor indentifies a universe of approximately 100 companies that derive at least 50% of their revenue from the mining of precious metals. The final portfolio is fundamentally selected based on, but not limited to, the following factors:
To select the ETFs for the final portfolio, the Sponsor considers a number of factors including the particular precious metal that is tracked by the ETF, as well as the overall size and liquidity of the ETF.
The final portfolio will consist of approximately 50% precious metal ETFs and 50% common stocks of precious metal mining companies.
