Investment Objective

The investment seeks to reflect generally the performance of the price of gold. The Trust seeks to reflect such performance before payment of the Trust--™s expenses and liabilities. It is not actively managed. The Trust does not engage in any activities designed to obtain a profit from- or to ameliorate losses caused by- changes in the price of gold. The advisor intends to constitute a simple and cost-effective means of making an investment similar to an investment in gold. An investment in physical gold requires expensive and sometimes complicated arrangements in connection with the assay- transportation- warehousing and insurance of the metal.
