BAR Reclaims Title of Lowest-Cost Gold ETF as GraniteShares Surges Past $350 Million in AUM


Firm celebrates impressive AUM milestone while its gold ETF reemerges
as the most affordable investment option in the space, joining
GraniteShares' COMB, COMG and PLTM as low-cost leaders

an innovative exchange-traded fund (ETF) company that recently
celebrated its one-year anniversary, surged past $350 million in assets
under management (AUM)* as the GraniteShares
Gold Trust (NYSE:
BAR) reemerged as the lowest-cost gold ETF.

BAR heralded its arrival last year with a trailblazing expense ratio of
20 basis points. GraniteShares has since reduced its fee even further to
17.49 basis points, making BAR the lowest-cost gold ETF** on the market
(as of Oct. 4, 2018).

"From the outset, our mission at GraniteShares has been to offer
innovative approaches for common pain points experienced by investors –
primarily cost," said Will Rhind, CEO of GraniteShares. "That commitment
to offering best-in-class investments was the driving motive behind
BAR's fee reduction, and is reflected throughout our entire ETF suite."

GraniteShares launched at the end of May 2017 to strong investor
interest in its two flagship broad-based commodities ETFs COMB
and COMG,
both of which are low-cost leaders in their categories. The firm then
debuted BAR to great fanfare in August 2017, and has since released the
lowest-cost physical platinum ETF (PLTM)***
and a high alternative income-focused ETF that invests in pass-through
securities (HIPS).
These five offerings now collectively total $350 million in AUM, with
BAR leading the way at approximately $280 million.

"The swift accumulation of assets to our platform is a testament to our
approach of bringing disruptive strategies to market with better
structures and lower management fees," said Rhind. "We believe inflation
fears coupled with the overheated equity market are creating the perfect
storm for commodity investing, and we'd expect this increased demand to
continue long into the future."
