Risks and Important Considerations
ADI is not affiliated with The Charles Schwab Corporation or any of its affiliates.
The value of the Shares relates directly to the value of platinum held by the Trusts and fluctuations in the price of gold, silver, platinum and palladium could materially adversely affect an investment in the Shares. Several factors may affect the price of gold, silver, platinum and palladium including: A change in economic conditions, such as a recession, can adversely affect the price of platinum. Gold, silver, platinum, and palladium are used in a wide range of industrial applications, and an economic downturn could have a negative impact on its demand and, consequently, its price and the price of the Shares; Investors' expectations with respect to the rate of inflation; currency exchange rates; interest rates; investment and trading activities of hedge funds and commodity funds; and global or regional political, economic or financial events and situations. Should there be an increase in the level of hedge activity of bullion producing companies, it could cause a decline in world prices, adversely affecting the price of the Shares. Also, should the speculative community take a negative view towards bullion, it could cause a decline in world gold, silver, platinum and palladium prices, negatively impacting the price of the Shares. There is a risk that part or all of the Trusts' gold, silver, platinum, and palladium could be lost, damaged or stolen. Failure by the Custodian or Sub-Custodian to exercise due care in the safekeeping of the precious metals held by the Trusts could result in a loss to the Trusts. Investments in the trust does not constitute a direct investment in the underlying metal.
