The premium/discount is calculated using the closing price from the exchange on which the Fund was last traded. The market price also shows the closing price from the exchange on which the Fund was last traded.

The returns represent past performance. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. The Fund’s investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when sold or redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted above.

In an effort to distinguish funds by what they own, as well as by their prospectus objectives and styles, Morningstar developed the Morningstar Categories. While the prospectus objective identifies a fund’s investment goals based on the wording in the fund prospectus, the Morningstar Category identifies funds based on their actual investment styles as measured by their underlying portfolio holdings (portfolio and other statistics over the past three years).

Effective close of business on December 4, 2020, Goldman Sachs Asset Management, L.P. became the sponsor of the Trust, assuming the role from the Trust’s prior sponsors.  At that time, the name of the Trust was changed from Perth Mint Physical Gold ETF to Goldman Sachs Physical Gold ETF.

Nothing contained in this material should be construed as an offer to sell nor a solicitation of an offer to buy shares (the “Shares”) of Goldman Sachs Physical Gold ETF (the “Trust”). This material must be preceded or accompanied by a current prospectus (the “prospectus”) of the Trust, which may be obtained from your authorized dealer or from Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC by calling 1-800-526-7384. Investors should read the prospectus carefully before investing.

Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. Because the Shares are intended to reflect the price of the gold held by the Trust’s custodian on behalf of the Trust, the market price of the Shares is subject to fluctuations similar to those affecting gold prices. Additionally, the Shares are bought and sold at market price, not at net asset value ("NAV") per share. The Shares may trade at NAV per share or at a price that is above or below NAV per share. Any discount or premium in the trading price relative to the NAV per share may widen as a result of the different trading hours of NYSE Arca and other exchanges. Brokerage commissions/fees will reduce returns.  For a more complete discussion of the risk factors relative to the Trust, carefully read the prospectus.

The value of the Shares fluctuates based upon the price of the gold owned by the Trust. Fluctuations in the price of gold could materially adversely affect investment in the Shares. Investors should be advised there is no assurance that gold will maintain its long-term value in the future. The lack of an active trading market for the Shares may result in losses on investment at the time of disposition of the 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. Also, should the speculative community take a negative view towards gold, it could cause a decline in world gold prices, negatively impacting the price of the Shares.

The amount of gold represented by the Shares will decrease over the life of the Trust due to sales of gold necessary to pay the sponsor's fee and trust expenses. Without increases in the price of gold sufficient to compensate for that decrease, the price of the Shares will also decline, and investors will lose money on their investment. The liquidation of the Trust may occur at a time when the disposition of the Trust's gold will result in losses to investors. Although market makers will generally take advantage of differences between the NAV and the trading price of the Shares through arbitrage opportunities, there is no guarantee that they will do so. The value of the Shares will be adversely affected if gold owned by the Trust is lost, damaged, destroyed or mis-delivered in circumstances in which the Trust is not in a position to recover the corresponding loss. The Trust is a passive investment vehicle.

The Trust is not a standard ETF.  The Trust is not an investment company registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940and is not required to register under such act. The Trust is not a commodity pool for purposes of the Commodity Exchange Act of 1936, and Goldman Sachs Asset Management, L.P., as the sponsor of the Trust (the “Sponsor”), is not subject to regulation by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission as a commodity pool operator or a commodity trading advisor under the Commodity Exchange Act in connection with the Shares. As such, the Trust is not subject to the same regulatory requirements as mutual funds. An investment in Shares is not suitable for all investors.

The Shares are neither interests in nor obligations of the Sponsor and its affiliates, and are not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other governmental agency.

Although the Shares may be bought or sold on the secondary market through any brokerage account, the Shares are not redeemable from the Trust except in large aggregated units called "Baskets". Only registered broker-dealers that become authorized participants by entering into a contract with the sponsor and the trustee of the Trust may purchase or redeem Baskets.

NAV is determined as specified in the prospectus: the Trustee values the Trust's gold on the basis of the LBMA Gold Price PM. All references to LBMA Gold Price are used with the permission of ICE Benchmark Administration Limited and have been provided for informational purposes only. ICE Benchmark Administration Limited accepts no liability or responsibility for the accuracy of the prices or the underlying product to which the prices may be referenced.

LBMA Gold Price means the price per troy ounce of gold for delivery in London through a member of the LBMA stated in USDs and set via an electronic auction process run twice daily at 10:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. London time each Business Day as calculated and administered by the ICE Benchmark Administration Limited (“IBA”), an independent specialist benchmark administrator who provides the price platform, methodology and overall administration and governance for the LBMA Gold Price.

The NAV used in the Total Return calculation assumes all management fees and operating expenses incurred by the Fund. Market price is the price at which the Fund’s shares are trading on its applicable listing exchange. Market Price returns are based upon the last trade at 4:00pm EST and do not reflect the returns you would receive if you traded shares at other times. The first day of secondary market trading is typically several days after the Fund’s inception of investment operations date; therefore, the NAV of the Fund is used as a proxy for the period from inception of investment operations to the first day of secondary market trading to calculate the Market Price returns.

Total returns are calculated assuming purchase of a share at the market price or NAV on the first day and sale of a share at the market price or NAV on the last day of each period reported. The Total Returns Based on NAV and Market Price do not reflect brokerage commissions in connection with the purchase or sale of Fund shares, which if included would lower the performance.

Please note that one cannot invest directly into an index.

Diversification does not protect an investor from market risk and does not ensure a profit.

The portfolio risk management process includes an effort to monitor and manage risk, but does not imply low risk.
