Junior Silver ETF

SILJ

JUNIOR SILVER MINERS ETF

For over 4,000 years, silver has been used as a currency. Due to silver's many special elemental properties - highest electrical conductivity, highest thermal conductivity, and lowest contact resistance of all metals - silver has become an essential input into many products made and used today. As a result, above ground stockpiles of refined silver have been depleting. The resulting strong demand in recent years for silver as an alternative currency, an investment metal, and an industrial metal has increased the need to bring more metal into production. We believe the increased demand for silver should benefit the companies that discover new economic silver deposits or produce the sought after metal. The ETFMG Prime Junior Silver ETF (SILJ) was created to bring silver exploration and mining exposure of small cap companies to institutional and retail investors alike. These companies are looking for the next big silver deposit and can benefit from the discovery of a new deposit, production of metal rich mines, or becoming a takeover target. SILJ is the first ETF to exclusively hold silver explorers and junior silver producers. The Fund seeks to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond generally to the price and yield performance of the Prime Junior Silver Miners & Explorers Index.

"Of all the elements, silver is the indispensable metal. It is the most electronically conducive, thermally conductive, and reflective. Modern life, as we know it, would not exist without silver."
