An investment in a GraniteShares short and leveraged exchange traded product (“ETP”) may not be suitable for all investors. They are intended for investors who wish to take a very short term view on the underlying asset and are not intended as buy and hold investments.
Performance and capital loss: Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results. The value of an investment may go down as well as up and can result in losses, up and including a total loss of the amount initially invested.
Generic risks: Investments in ETPs involve numerous risks including, among others, company risks, general market risks, credit risks, foreign exchange risks, interest rate risks, geopolitical risks and liquidity risks.
Specific product risks: The Index is constructed to track the performance of an increased (leveraged) and/or short exposure to the underlying asset. A fall (or rise where short and leveraged exposure) in value of the underlying asset can result in a greater reduction in the level of the Index. The Index is designed to do this on a daily basis only which should not be equated with seeking a leveraged position for periods longer than a day. The ETP’s performance over periods longer than one day will not be correlated or symmetrical with the returns of the underlying asset. Potential investors should refer to the section entitled “Risk Factors” and “Economic Overview of the ETP Securities” in the Prospectus relating to the Graniteshares ETPs for further details of these and other risks associated with an investment in short and leveraged ETPs and consult their financial advisers as needed.
Counterparty risk: An investment in a GraniteShares short and leveraged ETP involves counterparty risk. Graniteshares Financial plc has entered into a Swap Agreement with a counterparty, Natixis, that is backed with collateral. Failure of the counterparty to make payments may result in an investment in an ETP suffering a loss.

No financial instrument is sponsored, promoted, sold or supported in any other manner by Solactive AG nor does Solactive AG offer any express or implicit guarantee or assurance either with regard to the results of using the Index and/or Index trade mark or the Index level at any time or in any other respect.
