iShares Physical Gold ETC


Important Information: Capital at Risk. The value of investments and the income from them can fall as well as rise and are not guaranteed. Investors may not get back the amount originally invested.

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.

The index is not a benchmark within the meaning of Regulation (EU) 2016/1011.
