fastest-growing asset managers in the U.S. by accumulating over $500
million in assets under management (AUM), representing 1,180 percent
growth over the last year alone.*

This surge is led by the GraniteShares
Gold Trust (NYSE:
BAR), which has swelled past $430 million in
AUM**, having already attracted $113 million in 2019. With an expense
ratio of just 17.49 basis points, BAR is one of the lowest-cost ways to
invest in gold.

Bloomberg Commodity Broad Strategy No K-1 ETF (NYSE:
COMB), one
of the lowest-cost broad commodity ETFs in the U.S., recently surpassed
$50 million in AUM.***

"We founded GraniteShares to provide simple, cost effective access to
commodity and alternative investments," said Will Rhind, Founder and CEO
of GraniteShares. "We're thrilled with the investor appetite for our ETF
suite thus far, and remain committed to providing the best-in-class
solutions to our clients."

GraniteShares launched in May 2017 to impressive investor interest in
its two flagship funds, COMB and the GraniteShares
S&P GSCI Commodity Broad Strategy No K-1 ETF (COMG)
. It
subsequently issued the fast-rising BAR in August 2017, and has since
launched the GraniteShares
Platinum Trust (PLTM)
and acquired the GraniteShares
HIPS US High Income ETF (HIPS)
, a high alternative income-focused
fund that invests in pass-through securities.

"As high volatility and uncertainty punctuate the market, the timing is
ideal to invest in commodities, especially gold," said Rhind. "Our
competitively priced products offer investors a unique opportunity to
capitalize on this potential."
