I am scrambling to perform DD on this very intriguing ETR . . .
What I've discovered so far:
I can purchase this through my Fidelity 401K/Brokerage Link account, but for a hefty fee, 32.95 plus a $50 settlement fee (blech, hate me some banksters), BUT, per the RCM they will NOT be offering this in the US via a US symbol . . .
Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and were not offered or sold in the United States.
The ETRs have not been and will not be registered under the U.S.
I read here someone mentioned this is an unallocated offering, however, the cost/fee structure and storage/maintenance costs are allegedly less than Sprott's funds (PHYS, PSLV) and maybe CEF (CEF.A) as well.
I'm digging into the Information Sheet now and may be placing a trade soon. The US dollar denominated offering's premium is taking off vs. the Canadian dollar (MNT.U vs MNT).
Very intriguing indeed.
I'd love it if these guys updated there Google spreadsheet to include MNT.U:
In my ignorance I don't know if the premium would be "the same" if you factor in Canadian Dollar to US Dollar exchange rate, or the premiums are different . . . does that even make sense? :)
