STA Verdict



The Trust?s primary objective is to provide investors with an opportunity to invest in gold through the shares and be able to take delivery of physical gold in exchange for those shares. The Trust?s secondary objective is for the shares to reflect the performance of the price of gold less the expenses of the Trust?s operations. Each share represents a fractional undivided beneficial interest in the Trust?s net assets. The Trust?s assets consist principally of gold held on the Trust?s behalf in financial institutions for safekeeping.
