involves risk, and you could lose money on an investment in SPDR® Gold Trust (“GLD®” or “GLD”). ETFs trade like stocks, are subject to investment risk, fluctuate in market value and may trade at prices above or below the
ETFs’ net asset value. Brokerage commissions and ETF expenses will reduce returns. Commodities and commodity-index linked securities may be ected by changes in overall market movements, changes in interest rates, and other factors such as
weather, disease, embargoes, or political and regulatory developments, as well as trading activity of speculators and arbitrageurs in the underlying commodities. Frequent trading of ETFs could significantly increase commissions and other costs such
that they may set any savings from low fees or costs. Diversification does not ensure a profit or guarantee against loss. Investing in commodities entails significant risk and is not appropriate for all investors. Important Information Relating to
GLD: GLD has filed a registration statement (including a prospectus) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) for the offering to which this communication relates. Before you invest, you should read the prospectus in that
registration statement and other documents GLD has filed with the SEC for more complete information about GLD and this ering. Please see the GLD prospectus for a detailed discussion of the risks of investing in GLD shares. When distributed
electronically, the GLD prospectus is available by clicking here. You may get these documents for free by visiting EDGAR on the SEC website at sec.gov or by visiting spdrgoldshares. com. Alternatively, GLD or any authorized participant will arrange
to send you the prospectus if you request it by calling 866.320.4053. GLD is not an investment company registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (the “1940 Act”) and is not subject to regulation under the Commodity Exchange Act
of 1936 (the “CEA”). As a result, shareholders of GLD do not have the protections associated with ownership of shares in an investment company registered under the 1940 Act or the protections orded by the CEA. GLD shares trade like stocks,
are subject to investment risk and will fluctuate in market value. The value of GLD shares relates directly to the value of the gold held by GLD (less its expenses), and fluctuations in the price of gold could materially and adversely ect an
investment in the shares. The price received upon the sale of the shares, which trade at market price, may be more or less than the value of the gold represented by them. GLD does not generate any income, and as GLD regularly sells gold to pay for
its ongoing expenses, the amount of gold represented by each Share will decline over time to that extent. The World Gold Council name and logo are a registered trademark and used with the permission of the World Gold Council pursuant to a license
