USG: All that sparkles

USCF Gold Strategy Plus Income Fund (Ticker: USG) Overview

Investment Strategy
The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by maintaining substantial economic exposure to the performance of the Gold Markets (physical gold and gold futures markets) by investing in: i) negotiable warehouse receipts, called warrants (Gold Warrants), evidencing ownership of specific gold bars stored in licensed depositories in and around New York City, and ii) fully margined and collateralized gold futures contracts. Also, to obtain the desired economic exposure, the Fund may transact in other gold-related derivative instruments such as cash-settled options, forward contracts, options on futures contracts, and other options (Gold Interests).

The Fund may invest in Gold Investments (Gold Warrants and Gold Interests) directly or indirectly through the investments of its wholly-owned subsidiary incorporated in the Cayman Islands. However, the Fund primarily gains exposure to the Gold Markets through the Gold Investments made by the Subsidiary. The Subsidiary, which has the same investment objective as the Fund, is advised by the Adviser and sub-advised by SummerHaven Investment Management, LLC.

The Fund will only invest in COMEX Gold Warrants and gold futures through the Subsidiary. The percentage of the Fund’s assets invested in the Subsidiary will be limited to 25%.

The Fund is not an index ETF and is actively managed. The Fund is “non-diversified,” as that term is defined in the 1940 Act. Investors should be aware that the Fund’s investment objective is not for its NAV per share to equal the spot prices of the gold underlying its Gold Investments or the prices of any particular group of futures contracts, and investors should not expect changes in the Fund’s performance to track changes in such spot prices.

Reasons to Consider USG

1) USG provides exposure to the price of gold while generating quarterly dividend income, without a K-1.

2) USG is actively managed, integrating our research in commodities, fixed income and covered call options strategies.

3) USG offers diversification to traditional portfolio holdings such as stocks and bonds while serving as a hedge during periods of financial distress and rising inflation.
