Silver bullion may assist in protecting a portfolio from currency devaluation and inflation. Silver has been used throughout human history as a store of monetary value, and as such enjoys investment demand for its monetary utility. Silver’s unique qualities also make it considerably useful in a large number of industrial applications, thus making it one of the few monetary metals that also enjoy a commodity-driven demand profile.
The investment objective of Ninepoint Silver Bullion Fund is to seek to provide a secure, convenient alternative for investors seeking to hold silver. The Fund will invest primarily in unencumbered, fully allocated silver bullion and silver certificates. The Fund may also invest a portion of its assets in cash, money market instruments and/or treasury bills.
