Performance data quoted represents past performance, which is not a guarantee of future results. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate, and shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be higher or lower than performance data quoted. See invesco.com for the most recent month-end performance numbers. Fund performance reflects applicable fee waivers, absent which, the performance data quoted would have been lower. Returns less than one year are cumulative. The net asset value (NAV) and market close performance may differ from one another. A major reason for the difference is that timing discrepancies can exist between the NAV, which is calculated using the WM/Reuters closing spot rate, and the market close, which is calculated using closing price (last trade). Market price returns are based on the midpoint of the bid/ask spread at 4 p.m. ET and do not represent the returns an investor would receive if shares were traded at other times. As the result of a reorganization on April 6, 2018, the returns presented reflect performance of the Guggenheim predecessor fund. Invesco is not affiliated with Guggenheim.


Fund Inception: June 21, 2006

Shares in the Fund are not FDIC insured, may lose value and have no bank guarantee.

Shares are not individually redeemable and owners of the Shares may acquire those Shares from the Fund and tender those Shares for redemption to the Fund in Creation Unit aggregations only, typically consisting of 50,000 Shares.

Index returns do not represent Fund returns. An investor cannot invest directly in an index.

Neither the underlying Index nor the benchmark indexes charge management fees or brokerage expenses, and no such fees or expenses were deducted from the performance shown; nor do any of the indexes lend securities, and no revenues from securities lending were added to the performance shown. In addition, the results actual investors might have achieved would have differed from those shown because of differences in the timing, amounts of their investments, and fees and expenses associated with an investment in the Fund.

WM/Reuters closing spot rate is the exchange rate of the U.S. dollar and the applicable foreign currency as determined by WM/Reuters as of 4:00 p.m. London Time.



Potential benefits

Investors may wish to invest in the currency in order to take advantage of short-term tactical or long–term strategic opportunities.

An investor who believes that the U.S. dollar is weakening relative to the currency may capitalize on the potential movement.

An investor who believes that the currency is overvalued relative to the U.S. dollar may choose to sell CurrencyShares, including short sales, as permitted by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Investors are able to access the currency market through a traditional brokerage account and the shares trade daily on the NYSE Arca.


Investment risk

CurrencyShares are subject to risks similar to those of stocks and may not be suitable for all investors. The value of the Shares relates directly to the value of the Australian Dollars held by the Trust. Fluctuations in the price of the Australian Dollar could materially and adversely affect the value of the Shares.

If the Trust incurs expenses in USD, the Trust would be required to sell Australian Dollars to pay these expenses. The sale of the Trusts Australian Dollars to pay expenses in USD at a time of low Australian Dollars prices could adversely affect the value of the Shares.

If interest earned by the Trust does not exceed the Trusts expenses, the Trustee will withdraw Australian Dollars from the Trust to pay these excess expenses, which will reduce the amount of Australian Dollars represented by each Share on an ongoing basis and may result in adverse tax consequences for Shareholders.

Substantial sales of Australian Dollars by the official sector could adversely affect an investment in the Shares.

The USD/Australian Dollar exchange rate, like foreign exchange rates in general, can be volatile and difficult to predict. This volatility could materially and adversely affect the performance of the Shares. Investment in foreign exchange related products is subject to many factors that contribute to or increase volatility, such as national debt levels and trade deficits, changes in domestic and foreign interest rates, and investors’ expectations concerning interest rates, currency exchange rates and global or regional political, economic or financial events and situations.

The interest rate paid by the Depository, if any, may not be the best rate available. If the Sponsor determines that the interest rate is inadequate, then its sole recourse is to remove the Depository and terminate the Deposit Accounts.

The Fund is subject to certain other risks. Please see the current prospectus for more information regarding the risks associated with an investment in the Fund.

The Fund 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.
