Important Information

     I.Value Gold ETF (the “Fund”) is a fund listed on the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited (“SEHK”), which aims to provide investment results that closely correspond to the performance of the London Bullion Market Association Gold Price.
     II.The Fund only invests in bullion and may experience greater volatility due to single economic, market or political occurrences when compared to diversified mutual funds or unit trusts.
     III.The Fund has adopted a multi counter and units are traded in HKD, RMB and USD on SEHK. The nature of the multi-counter may make investment in the units riskier than in single counter units or shares of an SEHK listed issuer. Investors without RMB or USD accounts may buy and sell HKD traded units only.
     IV.RMB is not a freely convertible currency and is subject to foreign exchange control policies, as well as repatriation restrictions imposed by the PRC government. Investors whose base currencies of investments are not in RMB should take into account the potential risk of loss arising from fluctuations in value between such currencies and the RMB.
     V.The Fund does not insure its bullion and the Fund and unitholders could suffer a loss if the bullion held by the custodian is lost or damaged.
     VI.As the Fund is not actively managed, the Manager will not adopt a temporary defensive position against any market downturn. Investors may lose part or all of their investment.
     VII.Trading prices of units on the SEHK are subject to market forces and the units may trade at a substantial premium/discount to the net asset value of the Fund.
     VIII.You should not make investment decision on the basis of this material alone. Please read the prospectus for details and risk factors.

Support From Global Central Banks
  • In the recent report by the World Gold Council (WGC), purchase of gold by central banks has reached 55-year high. Central banks bought record high of gold in 2022 and 2023.
  • Gold remains a good hedge against inflation and heightened geopolitical risks, especially when great nations collide. Unlike currencies whose supply is influenced by monetary policies, gold is a finite physical commodity. That is one of the reasons why global central banks buy gold in bulk, as the asset class helps diversify their reserves. Value Gold ETF holds physical gold bars in Hong Kong, eliminating investment risks from geopolitical events or foreign policies, which helps investors achieve risk diversification
  • It is expected that central banks, especially emerging market ones, will continue to diversify their reserve with gold being one of the most favored asset during periods of high inflation
Central Banks' gold demand soared to a 55-year high
