Fund Objectives

The Fund seeks investment results, before fees, expenses, distributions, brokerage commissions and other transaction costs, that endeavour to correspond to the performance of the COMEX gold futures contract for a subsequent delivery month. Any U.S. dollar gains or losses as a result of the ETFs investment will be hedged back to the Canadian dollar to the best of the ETFs ability.
