USAG® is not a mutual fund or any other type of Investment Company within the meaning of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, and is not subject to regulation thereunder.
This investment is not suitable for all investors.
Commodity trading is highly speculative. Commodities and futures generally are volatile and are not suitable for all investors. USAG is speculative and involves a high degree of risk. These risks could result in large fluctuations in the price of USAG's units. An investor may lose all or substantially all of an investment in USAG. Funds that focus on a single sector generally experience greater volatility.
The Agriculture Index reflects an investment in a fully collateralized agriculture futures portfolio of commodities in the grains, softs and livestock sectors. A change in price of any of the commodities in these sectors will have a significant effect on the level of the Agriculture Index and the value of USAG's Units, which could have a material adverse effect on your investment.
The Agriculture Index does not correlate exactly with the spot price of agricultural commodities and this could cause the changes in the price of the Units to substantially vary from the changes in the spot price of agricultural commodities underlying the Benchmark Component Agriculture Futures Contracts. Therefore, you may not be able to effectively use USAG to hedge against agricultural commodity-related losses or as a way to indirectly invest in agricultural commodities. For further discussion of these and additional risks associated with an investment in USAG Units, click here.
Investors buy and sell units in the secondary market (i.e., not directly from USAG). Only "authorized purchasers" may trade directly with USAG, in minimum blocks of 50,000 units.
