GLL Fund Description

GLL provides -2x the daily performance of gold bullion as measured by the fixing price, in US Dollars, for delivery in London.

GLL Factset Analytics Insight

GLL is a geared inverse product that's designed for short-term bets against the spot price of gold. Investors should be aware that compounding can cause the fund's return to vary significantly from the headline -2x exposure if held longer than one day. To obtain the multiple over longer periods, investors must monitor and rebalance their position. As a physically based fund, contango doesn't factor into GLL's returns, unlike some competing products. Since the fund is designed for tactical use as opposed to long-term investment, the cost of accessing it is of more importance than the cost of holding it—which is quite high. GLL has typically traded with reasonable volume, but spreads can be wide at times.
