An investment in the Fund is subject to investment risks; therefore you may lose money by investing in the Fund. There can be no assurance that the Fund will be successful in meeting its investment objective. Shares of any ETF are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns. Narrowly focused investments typically exhibit higher volatility.

The Aberdeen Standard Gold ETF Trust, Aberdeen Standard Silver ETF Trust, Aberdeen Standard Precious Metals Basket ETF Trust, Aberdeen Standard Platinum ETF Trust and Aberdeen Standard Palladium ETF Trust are not investment companies registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940 or a commodity pool for purposes of the Commodity Exchange Act. Shares of the Trusts are not subject to the same regulatory requirements as mutual funds. These investments are not suitable for all investors. Trusts focusing on a single commodity generally experience greater volatility.

The value of the Shares relates directly to the value of the precious metal held by the Trusts and fluctuations in the price could materially adversely affect an investment in the Shares. Several factors may affect the price of precious metals, including:

  • A change in economic conditions, such as a recession, can adversely affect the price of the precious metal held by the Trusts. Some metals are used in a wide range of industrial applications, and an economic downturn could have a negative impact on its demand and, consequently, its price and the price of the Shares;
  • Investors' expectations with respect to the rate of inflation;
  • Currency exchange rates;
  • Interest rates;
  • Investment and trading activities of hedge funds and commodity funds; and
  • Global or regional political, economic or financial events and situations.

Should there be an increase in the level of hedge activity of the precious metal held by the trust or producing companies, it could cause a decline in world precious metal prices, adversely affecting the price of the Shares.

Also, should the speculative community take a negative view towards the precious metal held by the Trusts, it could cause a decline in prices, negatively impacting the price of the shares. There is a risk that part or all of the Trusts’ physical precious metal could be lost, damaged or stolen. Failure by the Custodian or Sub-Custodian to exercise due care in the safekeeping of the precious metal held by the Trusts could result in a loss to the Trusts.

The Trusts will not insure its precious metals and shareholders cannot be assured that the custodian will maintain adequate insurance or any insurance with respect to the precious metals held by the custodian on behalf of the Trust. Consequently, a loss may be suffered with respect to the Trust’s precious metal that is not covered by insurance.

Commodities generally are volatile and are not suitable for all investors.

Investors buy and sell shares on a secondary market (i.e., not directly from Trusts). Only market makers or "authorized participants" may trade directly with the Trusts, typically in blocks of 50k to 100k shares.

Shares in the Trust are not FDIC insured and may lose value and have no bank guarantee.

An investment in the trust does not constitute a direct investment in the underlying metal.
