GRAND CAYMAN, Cayman Islands, Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Physical Hard Assets Fund SPC (PHAF) is pleased to announce the approval of its new Physical Gold Fund SP.
The Fund was registered with the Cayman Island Monetary Authority (CIMA) on October 17th 2012, and is available to sophisticated and institutional investors only. The Fund has been approved for listing on the Cayman Stock Exchange (CSX).
The Physical Gold Fund SP is designed to provide investors with a liquid, convenient and economical way to own shares in a regulated fund that is fully backed by physical allocated gold, independent of banks, with shares that are redeemable to the underlying physical gold through the Precious Metals Agent.
"We are very pleased to launch this fund, as there are investors who are concerned about gold vaulting arrangements with banks," says Nestor Castillero, Director of Physical Hard Assets Fund SPC. "They want to be confident not only that the physical gold is accounted for, but that it is safe from systemic risks and that they can redeem shares for the gold itself. Physical Gold Fund SP is the first of its kind in the marketplace, and is competitive with much larger funds which may offer less robust defenses against systemic risk."
Trident Fund Services is the fund administrator, Solomon Harris acts as Legal Counsel, Las Bovedas Company (Cayman) Limited is the Investment Advisor, AFE Custodial Company (AFECC) is the Precious Metals Agent, and Grant Thornton and Ernst and Young are the auditors.
Shares in the Fund are offered on the basis of an Offering Memorandum and Supplemental Offering Memorandum approved by the Cayman Stock Exchange (CSX) and filed with Cayman Islands Monetary Authority (CIMA), and the Memorandum and Articles of Association of PHAF.
