SPDR® Gold Trust (the “Trust”) is an exchange traded fund designed to track the price of gold (net of Trust expenses).
Investment involves risks, in particular, investing in one single commodity asset class. Fluctuation in the price of gold may materially adversely affect the value of the Trust. Investors may lose part or all of their investment.
The trading price of the shares may be different from the underlying NAV per share.
The Trust may not be suitable for all investors. Investors should not invest based on this marketing material only. Investors should read the Trust’s prospectus, including the risk factors, take into consideration of the product features, their own investment objectives, risk tolerance level etc. and seek independent financial and professional advices as appropriate prior to making any investment.
There can be no assurance that a liquid market will be maintained for ETF shares.
Diversification does not ensure a profit or guarantee against loss.
