Investment Objective

The investment seeks to reflect the performance of the price of gold bullion- less the Trust--s expenses. The Shares are intended 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. Although the Shares are not the exact equivalent of an investment in gold- they provide investors with an alternative that allows a level of participation in the gold market through the securities market.
