ETFS Silver Trust, ETFS Precious Metals Basket Trust & ETFS White Metals Basket Trust to Use CME Group/Thomson Reuters London Silver Price as Their Benchmark Price Starting August 15, 2014

Wednesday, August 6th

London Silver Market Fixing Ltd. has announced its intention to discontinue the "London Fix" pricing benchmark for silver after August 14, 2014.  The London Fix has been the "Benchmark Price" for valuation of silver bullion held by each of the ETFS Silver Trust (NYSE Arca: SLVR) (the "Silver Trust"), the ETFS Precious Metals Basket Trust (NYSE Arca: GLTR) (the "Precious Metals Trust") and the ETFS White Metals Basket Trust (NYSE Arca: WITE) (the "White Metals Trust" and together with the Silver Trust and the Precious Metals Trust, the "ETFS Trusts"). The London Bullion Market Association has accepted a proposal by CME Group and Thomson Reuters to operate a replacement silver price benchmark mechanism. Commencing August 15, 2014, CME Group/Thomson Reuters will operate an electronic, volume-weighted, over-the-counter silver bullion market clearing process to establish and publish a fixed price for a troy ounce of silver once each trading day at Noon London time (the "London Silver Price").
