iShares Physical Gold ETC objective

iShares physically-backed Exchange Traded Commodities (iShares Physical ETCs) are series of secured metal-linked debt securities that trade on one or more regulated exchanges and offer investors easily accessible, liquid and transparent exposure to physical precious metals. iShares Physical ETCs provide investors with exposure to the performance of individual precious metals without the need to take physical delivery or trade commodity futures contracts. The iShares Physical Gold ETC seeks to track the day-to-day movement of the price of gold, less fees, by holding gold bullion. The gold bullion backs the securities issued and is valued daily at the London PM fix price. The gold bullion is held as allocated gold bars with the custodian, JPMorgan. State Street acts as the Trustee. iShares Physical ETCs are exchange traded commodities and are neither funds nor exchange traded funds.
