The GraniteShares Platinum Trust is designed to seek the performance of the price of platinum, less trust expenses.
Performance data quoted represents past performance and is no guarantee of future results. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than original cost. Returns less than one year are not annualized. NAV prices are used to calculate market price performance prior to the date when the Fund first traded on the New York Stock Exchange. Market performance is determined using the bid/ask midpoint at 4:00pm Eastern time, when the NAV is typically calculated. Market performance does not represent the returns you would receive if you traded shares at other times. For the fund’s most recent month end performance, please call 1(844) 476-8747, or visit www.graniteshares.com.
The primary explanation is that timing discrepancies can arise between the NAV and the closing price of the Fund. Since shares of the Fund trade on the open market, prices are affected by the constant flow of information received by investors, corporations and financial institutions. Depending on how this changing information affects investor sentiment, shares of the Fund may deviate slightly from the value of the Fund's underlying assets. As a result, shareholders may pay more than NAV when they buy Fund shares and receive less than NAV when they sell those shares, because shares are purchased and sold at current market prices. However, due to the creation and redemption process that is unique to ETFs, market makers are able to minimize these deviations from NAV by taking advantage of arbitrage opportunities.
Close of Trading Times. Although both the NAV and the closing trade of the ETF are generally calculated at the closing time of 4:00 p.m. ET, some differences in this timing may cause discrepancies.
Time of Last Trade. Trading of GraniteShares ETFs generally takes place during normal trading hours (9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. eastern time). However, it is important to note that the last trade, when closing price is determined, may not occur at exactly 4:00 p.m. eastern time. Therefore, any market move during the time difference may cause the NAV to deviate from the closing price.

Important Information and Risks
This website and its content has been provided by GraniteShares.
The Trust must be preceded or accompanied by a prospectus. Please read the prospectus carefully before investing or sending money. To obtain a prospectus visit the link www.graniteshares.com/etfs
Shares of the Trust are not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”), may lose value and have no bank guarantee.
PLTM is not a mutual fund or any other type of Investment Company within the meaning of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, and is not subject to regulation thereunder.
The Trust is not a commodity pool for purposes of the Commodity Exchange Act of 1936, as amended.
The Trust is recently formed and has a limited history of operations. There can be no assurances that its objective will be met.
Trust shares trade like stocks, are subject to investment risk and will fluctuate in market value. The value of Trust shares relates directly to the value of the platinum held by the Trust (less its expenses), and fluctuations in the price of platinum could materially and adversely affect an investment in the shares. The price received upon the sale of the shares, which trade at market price, may be more or less than the value of the platinum represented by them. Shares of the Trust are bought and sold at market price and not individually redeemed from the Trust. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns.
Market Price: The current price at which shares are bought and sold. Market returns are based upon the last trade price.
NAV: The dollar value of a single share, based on the value of the underlying assets of the fund minus its liabilities, divided by the number of shares outstanding. Calculated at the end of each business day.
Physical Replication: The Trust owns the underlying assets of the index whether they are stocks, bonds, or in this case, platinum bars. The objective of the Trust is for the value of the Shares to reflect, at any given time, the value of the assets owned by the Trust at that time less the Trust’s accrued expenses and liabilities as of that time. The Shares are intended to constitute a simple and cost-effective means of making an investment similar to an investment in platinum. An investment in allocated physical platinum bullion requires expensive and sometimes complicated arrangements in connection with the assay, transportation, and warehousing of the metal. Traditionally, such expense and complications have resulted in investments in physical platinum bullion being efficient only in amounts beyond the reach of many investors. The Shares have been designed to remove the obstacles represented by the expense and complications involved in an investment in physical platinum bullion, while at the same time having an intrinsic value that reflects, at any given time, the price of the assets owned by the Trust at such time less the Trust expenses and liabilities. Although the Shares are not the exact equivalent of an investment in platinum, they provide investors with an alternative that allows a level of participation in the platinum market through the securities market. The Sponsor of the Trust is GraniteShares LLC.
FORESIDE FUND SERVICES, LLC PROVIDES MARKETING SERVICES TO THE TRUST.
Investing in the shares involves significant risks, including possible loss of principal. You could lose money on an investment in the Trust.
Commodities generally are volatile and are not suitable for all investors. Trusts focusing on a single commodity generally experience greater volatility. The Value of the Shares relates directly to the value of the platinum held by the Trust and the fluctuations in the price of platinum could materially adversely affect an investment in the Shares.
The price of platinum has fluctuated widely over the past several years. Several Factors may affect the price of platinum, including:
•Global platinum supply, which is influenced by such factors as production and cost levels in major platinum producing countries such as South Africa. Recycling, autocatalyst demand, industrial demand, jewelry demand and investment demand are also important drivers of platinum supply and demand; •Investors' expectations with respect to the rate of inflation; •Currency exchange rates; •Interest Rates; •Investment and trading activities of hedge funds and commodity funds; and •Global or regional political, economic or financial events and situations.
The amount of platinum represented by each share will decrease over the life of the Trust due to the sales of platinum necessary to pay the Sponsor’s Fee and Trust expenses. Without increases in the price of platinum sufficient to compensate for that decrease, the price of the Shares will also decline and you will lose money on your investment in shares.
The Trust is a passive investment vehicle. The price received upon the sale of shares may be less than the value of the platinum represented by them.
The Trust is not a diversified investment, it may be more volatile than other investments.
The Trust may be forced to sell platinum earlier than anticipated if expenses are higher than expected.
The Sponsor has no history of operating an investment vehicle like the Trust, its experience may be inadequate or unsuitable to manage the Trust.
Please refer to the prospectus for complete information regarding all risks associated with the Trust.
