Investing in a Fund subjects an investor to the risks of the applicable commodity market, which investment could result in substantial fluctuations in the price of Fund Shares. Unlike mutual funds, the Funds generally will not distribute dividends to Shareholders.
Investors may choose to use a Fund as a vehicle to hedge against the risk of loss, and there are risks involved in such investments and activities. The Sponsor has limited experience in operating a commodity pool, which is defined as an enterprise in which several individuals contribute funds in order to trade futures or futures options collectively.
Commodities and futures generally are volatile and are not suitable for all investors.
The Funds are not mutual funds or any other type of Investment Company within the meaning of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, and are not subject to regulation thereunder.
For a complete description of the risks associated with each of the Funds, please refer to the applicable prospectus.
Shares of the Funds are not FDIC insured, may lose value, and have no bank guarantee.
