The common rule of thumb for what you will need in retirement varies widely!

Many rules of thumb say that by the time you reach retirement age, you should have saved 10X your annual salary.

Other experts estimate that an individual will need a minimum of $2-4 million to retire at age 65 by 2020. If you have the value of your weight in gold by age 55, you may be well on your way to a comfortable retirement.

Why measure in gold instead of dollars? Gold has held its value over time. While currencies can be devalued.

Many astute investors typically allocate 5-10% of a diversified portfolio to gold. AAAU may be an effective way to buy shares of an ETF which can be exchanged for gold.

Buying shares of AAAU can help you build a currency free store of value that may also appreciate over time.

Before investing you should carefully consider the Perth Mint Physical Gold ETF (“Trust”) investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. Please read the prospectus carefully before you invest.

All obligations of the trust custodian, The Perth Mint, including the gold held on behalf of investors in AAAU, are guaranteed by the government of Western Australia.

The Government Guarantee is subject to the claims-paying ability of the Government of Western Australia. If the Custodian becomes insolvent, its assets, and the assets of the Government of Western Australia under the Government Guarantee, may not be adequate to satisfy a claim by the Trust or any Authorized Participant. The referenced guarantee does not apply to fluctuations in the value of shares based on the price of gold which could create potential losses. Gold owned by the Trust may be subject to loss, damage, theft or restriction on access.

The Trust is not a mutual fund or any other type of Investment Company within the meaning of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, and is not subject to regulation thereunder. The value of your shares fluctuates based upon the price of the gold held by the Trust. Fluctuations in the price of gold could materially adversely affect your investment in the shares. Investors should be advised there is no assurance that gold will maintain its long-term USD value in the future. The lack of an active trading market for the shares may result in losses on your investment at the time of disposition of your shares. Because the Trust invests only in gold, an investment in the Trust may be more volatile than an investment in a more broadly diversified portfolio. Substantial sales of gold by central banks, governmental agencies and multi-lateral institutions could adversely affect an investment in the shares.

The request for the exchange of shares for gold is subject to a number of risks including but not limited to the potential for the price of gold to decline during the time between the submission of the request and delivery. Delivery may take a considerable amount of time depending on your location. The Trust may suspend redemptions of baskets by authorized participants and Gold Corporation may suspend or reject the exchange of shares for physical gold, which could affect the market price of the shares. The withdrawal of an authorized participant and substantial redemptions by authorized participants may affect the liquidity of the shares.

Trust shares may trade at Net Asset Value or at a price that is above or below Net Asset Value. Any discount or premium in the trading price relative to the Net Asset Value per share may widen as a result of the different trading hours of NYSE Arca and other exchanges.
