Important Risk Disclosure

Although ETF shares may be bought and sold on the exchange through any brokerage account, ETF shares are not individually redeemable from the Fund. Certain investors may acquire ETFs and tender them for redemption through the Fund in Creation Unit Aggregations only. Please see the prospectus for more details.

Investing involves risk, and you could lose money on an investment in SPDR® Gold MiniSharesSM Trust ("GLDMSM"), a series of the World Gold Trust.

ETFs trade like stocks, are subject to investment risk, fluctuate in market value and may trade at prices above or below the ETFs net asset value. Brokerage commissions and ETF expenses will reduce returns.

Commodities and commodity-index linked securities may be affected by changes in overall market movements, changes in interest rates, and other factors such as weather, disease, embargoes, or political and regulatory developments, as well as trading activity of speculators and arbitrageurs in the underlying commodities.

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

Diversification does not ensure a profit or guarantee against loss.

Investing in commodities entails significant risk and is not appropriate for all investors.

Before investing, consider the funds' investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses.

Fund Data

Because ETFs trade like stocks at current market prices, shareholders may pay more than a fund’s NAV when purchasing fund shares and may receive less than a fund’s NAV when selling fund shares.

The indicative net asset value (iNAV) per share is a measure of the intraday net asset value (NAV) of an investment.  The indicative NAV is provided for reference purposes only and may differ from the actual NAV per share calculated in accordance with the Prospectus.

Before investing, consider the funds' investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses.

Performance quoted represents past performance, which is no guarantee of future results. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate, so you may have a gain or loss when shares are sold. Current performance may be higher or lower than that quoted. Performance of an index is not illustrative of any particular investment. All results are historical and assume the reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. It is not possible to invest directly in an index.

Performance returns for periods of less than one year are not annualized. Performance is shown net of fees.

Index returns are unmanaged and do not reflect the deduction of any fees or expenses. Index returns reflect all items of income, gain and loss and the reinvestment of dividends and other income as applicable.

The market price used to calculate the Market Value return is the midpoint between the highest bid and the lowest offer on the exchange on which the shares of the Fund are listed for trading, as of the time that the Fund's NAV is calculated. If you trade your shares at another time, your return may differ.

Ordinary brokerage commissions may apply.


Fund Footnotes

Important risk information

Investing involves risk, and you could lose money on an investment in SPDR® Gold MiniShares℠ Trust (“GLDM℠” or “GLDM”), a series of the World Gold Trust.

ETFs trade like stocks, are subject to investment risk, fluctuate in market value and may trade at prices above or below the ETFs’ net asset value. Brokerage commissions and ETF expenses will reduce returns.

Commodities and commodity-index linked securities may be affected by changes in overall market movements, changes in interest rates, and other factors such as weather, disease, embargoes, or political and regulatory developments, as well as trading activity of speculators and arbitrageurs in the underlying commodities.

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

Diversification does not ensure a profit or guarantee against loss.

Investing in commodities entails significant risk and is not appropriate for all investors.

Important Information Relating to GLDM℠:

The World Gold Trust has filed a registration statement (including a prospectus) with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") for the offering to which this communication relates. Before you invest, you should read the prospectus in that registration statement and other documents the World Gold Trust has filed with the SEC for more complete information about GLDM and this offering. Please see the GLDM prospectus for a detailed discussion of the risks of investing in GLDM shares. The GLDM prospectus is available by clicking here. You may get these documents for free by visiting EDGAR on the SEC website at sec.gov or by visiting spdrgoldshares.com. Alternatively, GLDM or any authorized participant will arrange to send you the prospectus if you request it by calling 866.320.4053.

GLDM is not an investment company registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (the "1940 Act") and is not subject to regulation under the Commodity Exchange Act of 1936 (the "CEA"). As a result, shareholders of GLDM do not have the protections associated with ownership of shares in an investment company registered under the 1940 Act or the protections afforded by the CEA.

GLDM shares trade like stocks, are subject to investment risk and will fluctuate in market value. The value of GLDM shares relates directly to the value of the gold held by GLDM (less its expenses), and fluctuations in the price of gold could materially and adversely affect an investment in the shares. The price received upon the sale of the shares, which trade at market price, may be more or less than the value of the gold represented by them. GLDM does not generate any income, and as GLDM regularly sells gold to pay for its ongoing expenses, the amount of gold represented by each Share will decline over time to that extent.
