Fund Description
The Fund seeks to track the performance of the Index. The Index is designed to provide broad exposure to the U.S. dollar-denominated investment grade corporate bond sector while at the same time mitigating or hedging against U.S. dollar currency risk through the implementation of a gold inflation hedge. The Index provides investment exposure to gold that approximately equals the investment exposure to the corporate bonds comprising the Index and, in doing so, attempts to provide investment exposure to U.S. dollar-denominated corporate bond investments as if such bonds were denominated in gold. The Fund cannot invest in the Index, but attempts to track the performance of the Index by investing in the underlying constituents that comprise the Index Components and by investing in securities that seek to maximize correlation with the Index Components. 2 The Fund s investment strategy is premised on the proposition that an investment in gold can potentially provide a hedge against inflation for a bond investment. Historically, the price of gold has generally risen when inflation was eroding the value of the U.S. dollar s purchasing power. Notwithstanding the foregoing, there is no guarantee that the price of gold will move as expected relative to the U.S. dollar, nor is there any guarantee that gold will act as an effective inflation hedge. It is possible that the prices of gold and investment grade corporate bonds may decline at the same time, resulting in a significant decline in the value of the Index.
