Risks

This UBS Exchange Traded Fund invests in gold and may therefore be subject to considerable fluctuations in value. Investors therefore require an investment horizon of at least five years and corresponding risk tolerance and capacity. All capital investments are subject to market fluctuations. Every fund has specific risks, which can significantly increase under unusual market conditions. The main risk of gold is that there is a lack of risk diversification due to the concentration of the investment in gold. The fund's assets are passively managed. As a result, the net asset value of the fund's assets is directly dependent on the performance of gold. Losses that could be avoided via active management (selling gold and increasing liquidity ahead of expected price falls) will not be offset.
