The investment seeks to reflect generally the performance of the price of silver. The Trust seeks to reflect such performance before payment of the Trust's expenses and liabilities. It is not actively managed. The Trust does not engage in any activities designed to obtain a profit from, or to ameliorate losses caused by, changes in the price of silver. It receives silver deposited with it in exchange for the creation of baskets of shares, sells silver as necessary to cover the Trust expenses and other liabilities and delivers silver in exchange for baskets of shares surrendered to it for redemption.
