GOAU Fund Description

GOAU tracks an index of 28 precious metal mining firms listed in the US, Canada, Australia, Hong Kong or South Africa. Holdings are selected by fundamental factors and weighted in fixed tiers.

GOAU Factset Analytics Insight

GOAU is the second fund from issuer US Global. The fund provides an alternate take on the mining space by screening for fundamental factors and using a complex tiered weighting structure. Unlike some competitors, the fund includes royalty and streaming companies, which provide capital to mining start-ups in exchange for a stake in the eventual production. GOAU starts by screening out mining firms that are financed primarily with debt. Miners in the top 10% by revenue per employee are deemed “priority companies”, and the index calculates a composite score for each security scoring priority companies by revenue/employees, operating cash flow/employees, and gross margin, and other firms by operating cash flow/enterprise value. GOAU builds its portfolio by filling a fixed, four-tier bracket of 28 names, starting with the highest-scored priority companies and then moving down the list of other firms. Tier 1 contains three names, weighted at 10% each, which must be gold or silver miners directly listed in the US or Canada, with at least $1 billion market cap. These requirements become less stringent with each tier, Tier 4 consists of ten names, weighted at 2% each, listed outside North America, with at least $200 million in market cap. GOAU reconstitutes quarterly.
