Key Features

Key Features

The Shares offer investors an innovative, relatively cost efficient way to access the gold market. The Shares are intended to offer investors a means of participating in the gold bullion market without the necessity of taking physical delivery of gold, and to buy and sell that interest through the trading of a security on a regulated stock exchange. The introduction of the Shares was intended to lower many of the barriers, such as access, custody, and transaction costs, that have prevented some investors from investing in gold.

The Shares offer the following key advantages: 

1. Easily accessible – listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange

2. Secure – The Shares represent fractional, undivided interests in the Trust, the sole assets of which are physical gold bullion and, from time to time, cash.

3. Relatively Cost Effective - For many investors, transaction costs related to the Shares are expected to be lower than the costs associated with the purchase, storage, and insurance of gold bullion in a traditional gold bullion account.

4. Transparent – There exists a 24-hour global over-the counter market for gold bullion, which provides readily available market data. The price, holdings, and net asset value of the Shares, as well as market data for the overall gold bullion market, can be tracked daily at www.spdrgoldshares.com.

5. Flexible – The Shares are listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (2840.HK) and trade the same way ordinary stocks do. It is possible to buy or sell the Shares continuously throughout the trading day on the exchange at prices established by the market. Additionally, it is possible to place market, limit and stop-loss orders of the Shares.


Fund Objective

Frequent trading of ETF's could significantly increase commissions and other costs such that they may offset any savings from low fees or costs.

These investments may have difficulty in liquidating an investment position without taking a significant discount from current market value, which can be a significant problem with certain lightly traded securities. Investing in commodities entail significant risk and is not appropriate for all investors. Commodities investing entail significant risk as commodity prices can be extremely volatile due to wide range of factors. A few such factors include overall market movements, real or perceived inflationary trends, commodity index volatility, international, economic and political changes, change in interest and currency exchange rates.

Nothing contained herein constitutes investment advice and should not be relied upon as such. The value of the Shares of the Trust may fall or rise.

Past performance figures of the Trust or of the gold market are not necessarily indicative of the future performance of the Trust. The Shares are expected to reflect the gold price, therefore the price of the Shares will be as unpredictable as the gold price has historically been.

It is intended that the holders of the Shares may only deal in their Shares through trading on the Singapore Exchange Securities Trading Limited ("SGX").

Listing of the shares on the SGX does not guarantee a liquid market for the Shares, and the Shares may be delisted from the SGX.
