  • Where is the metal stored?

    The physical silver bullion for ETPMAG is held in the vault(s) of JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. in London. The vault is audited twice yearly by the auditor Inspectorate. All audit reports are made available in the resources section below. Each silver bar in the vault is itemised in a bar-list which is also available in the resources section below.
  • How is the management fee paid?

    Each ETPMAG unit comes with an entitlement to an amount of physical bullion. This amount was 0.942759061 fine troy ounces as at 1 January 2021. The entitlement is reduced daily by a management fee of 0.49% per annum.
  • How do I redeem units for the physical metal?

    To redeem for physical silver, an investor needs to:

    1. Complete and send a redemption form.
    2. Open an unallocated bullion account with an authorised bullion dealer.
    3. Pay a redemption fee of $1,000 for each redemption.

    Depending on the quantity of the order, investors may find that selling units in the secondary market is a more cost-efficient option, especially for small quantities.
  • How can you use ETPMAG in a portfolio?

    Like gold, silver tends to perform well during periods of equity market volatility. Silver can therefore be used to enhance a portfolio’s risk/return characteristics through diversification. Silver can be viewed as an alternative asset.

    Silver has been used as a store of value, and because it is independent of any fiat currency it can be used as an inflation hedge.

    Silver can offer a growth exposure in relation to industrial demand in the areas of battery storage and medical devices, among other industries.
