iShares Physical Gold ETC


Important Information: Capital at Risk. All financial investments involve an element of risk. Therefore, the value of your investment and the income from it will vary and your initial investment amount cannot be guaranteed.

Important Information: The value of your investment will vary and your initial investment amount cannot be guaranteed,  The securities issued by iShares Physical Metals plc are limited recourse obligations which are payable solely out of the underlying secured property. If the secured property is insufficient any outstanding claims will remain unpaid. ETCs will seek exposure to a limited number of market sectors. Compared to investments which spread investment risk more generally through a variety of sectors, price movements may have a greater effect on the overall value of the investment. Precious metal prices are generally more volatile than most other asset classes, making investments riskier and more complex than other investments.
ETCs trade on exchanges like securities and are bought and sold at market prices which may be different to the net asset values of the ETCs.

Between 5 January 2015 and 8 April 2015, the ETC’s 12 month performance figure was incorrectly stated for the period 31 December 2013 to 31 December 2014.
