This is the non-currency hedge version of SVR.
Unlike SVR, this fund does not employ USD/CAD currency hedging.
The investment objective of the iShares Silver Bullion Fund is to replicate the performance of the price of Silver bullion, less its expenses and fees. The Fund is not actively managed. The iShares Silver Bullion Fund does not anticipate making regular distributions.
The assets of the iShares Silver Bullion Fund consist primarily of physical Silver bullion (the "Portfolio") which the fund purchases and holds in accordance with its investment objective, strategy, policies and restrictions.
The iShares Silver Bullion Fund invests its assets in holdings of unencumbered Silver bullion, in 1000 troy ounce international bar sizes, and will not speculate with regard to short-term changes in Silver prices. This strategy provides investors with the ability to invest in unencumbered Silver bullion in a convenient, tradable and secure manner without the associated inconvenience and high transaction, handling, storage, insurance and other costs typical of direct Silver bullion investment.
All physical Silver bullion owned by the iShares Silver Bullion Fund is stored in the vault facilities of a Canadian Schedule I chartered bank, or an affiliate or a division thereof, on an allocated and segregated basis.
