Gold Bullion Securities
GBS/GBSS is backed by physical allocated gold held by HSBC Bank plc (the custodian). Only metal that conforms with the London Bullion Market Association's (LBMA) rules for Good Delivery can be accepted by the custodian. Each physical bar is segregated, individually identified and allocated.
GBS/GBSS also has a unique feature allowing investors to redeem their securities directly for physical gold. They can receive either unallocated gold or Britannias or Sovereigns, Britain's premier investment bullion coins issued by The Royal Mint of Great Britain. For more information, please contact us.

The above chart presents information about the difference between the daily market price for shares of the Fund and the Fund's net asset value. The market price is determined using the midpoint between the highest bid and the lowest offer on the listing exchange, as of the time that the Fund's NAV is calculated (usually 4:00 p.m. eastern time for most Funds). The vertical axis of the chart shows the premium or discount expressed as a percentage of mid-point.

Spot Gold LBMA specifications
Each individual Gold Bullion Security has an effective entitlement to gold, and that entitlement changes daily to reflect the accrual of the management fee.
Authorised participants create and redeem Gold Bullion Securities by delivering or receiving gold that conforms to LBMA Good Delivery standards.
Gold Bullion Securities are traded on exchange with a price that is based on the spot price of gold multiplied by the applicable metal entitlement.
