Interest earned on the deposited currency, if any, will be used to pay the Trust's expenses. Any excess interest will be distributed to Shareholders monthly. Such interest is not expected to form a significant part of the Shareholders' investment return. If the Trust's expenses exceed interest earned, the Trustee will withdraw respective currency held by the Trust to pay the excess, thereby reducing the number of currency per Share. This may result in adverse tax consequences for shareholders.
Performance displayed represents past performance, which is no guarantee of future results. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that when shares of the CurrencyShares Trust are redeemed, they may be worth more or less than original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted. Prices shown are in U.S. Dollars unless otherwise noted.
The NAV and Market Close performance may differ. A major reason for the difference is that timing discrepancies can exist between the NAV, which is calculated using WM/Retuers Closing Spot Rate and Market Close, which is calculated using Closing Price (last trade). WM/Retuers Closing Spot Rate is the exchange rate of the U.S. Dollar and the applicable foreign currency as determined by WM/Retuers as of 4:00 PM London time.
WM/Retuers Closing Spot rates are provided by WM/Retuers and are used for certain currencies (the “Rates”) displayed herein. WM/Retuers shall not be liable for any errors in or delays in providing or making available WM/Retuers Closing Spot rates, nor for any actions taken in reliance on the same. This information can not be used, reproduced, distributed, redistributed, licensed or disclosed in any way without a written agreement with WM/Retuers.

CurrencyShares® are subject to risks similar to those of stocks and may not be suitable for all investors. The value of the shares of each CurrencyShares Trust relates directly to the value of the foreign currency held by the particular Trust. This creates a concentration risk associated with fluctuations in the price of the applicable foreign currency. Accordingly, a decline in the price of that currency will have an adverse effect on the value of the shares of the particular CurrencyShares Trust. Factors that may have the effect of causing a decline in the price of a foreign currency include national debt levels and trade deficits, domestic and foreign interest rates, investment and trading activities of institutions and global or regional political, economic or financial events and situations. Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of these products carefully before investing. The prospectus pertaining to each product contains this and other information about the product. Please read the applicable prospectus, including the Risk Factors section, carefully before you invest.
Shares can be bought and sold through a broker and the purchasers or sellers may have to pay brokerage commissions in connection with the transaction. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate so that shares may be worth more or less than original cost. Shares may only be redeemed directly from the Trust by Authorized Participants via baskets (as defined in the prospectus). There can be no assurance that an active trading market for the shares will develop or be maintained.
