This website is owned and operated by Tocqueville. Permission is granted to display and navigate around this website solely for personal, non-commercial use. Any commercial or public use of this website or any portion hereof is strictly prohibited. Except as otherwise permitted in writing by Tocqueville, no text, graphics, video, audio, software code, user interface design, logos or any other content of this website may be used, modified, framed, copied, reproduced, republished, uploaded, posted, transmitted, or distributed in any way. You may download material displayed on this website for non-commercial, personal use only if you preserve and retain all copyright and other proprietary notices contained on the materials.

Tocqueville neither warrants nor represents that your use of materials displayed on this website or links will not infringe rights of the third parties not owned by or affiliated with Tocqueville.


Certain information provided on or through this website may have been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) (such materials being referred to as “SEC Materials”). Tocqueville does not assume any duty of disclosure beyond that which is imposed by law. The SEC Materials should be read in conjunction with an entity’s periodic and other reports filed with the SEC, including the disclosures therein of certain factors which may affect an entity’s future performance. Statements contained in the SEC Materials are intended to be read in conjunction with and in the context of the complete SEC Materials in which they appear, rather than as stand-alone statements.

Certain statements included in both the SEC Materials and other public disclosures contained on this website are “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements can be identified by words such as “believes,” “expects,” “anticipates,” “intends,” “plans,” “estimates,” “projects,” “forecasts,” and future or conditional verbs such as “will,” “may,” “could,” “should,” and “would,” as well as any other statement that necessarily depends on future events. Such forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties, and other factors which could cause actual results to differ materially from future results expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. The most significant of such factors include, but are not limited to, the following: the performance of financial markets, the investment performance of sponsored investment products and separately managed accounts, general economic conditions, future acquisitions, competitive conditions, and government regulations, including changes in tax rates. Tocqueville cautions readers to carefully consider such factors. Further, such forward-looking statements speak only as of the date on which such statements are made; factors or events that could cause Tocqueville’s actual results to differ may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for Tocqueville to predict all of them. Tocqueville undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of such statements.


Nothing on this website shall be considered a solicitation to buy or an offer to sell a security, or any other product or service, to any person in any jurisdiction where such solicitation, offer, purchase or sale would be unlawful under the laws of such jurisdiction.


Electronic Mail (email) submitted to this website should be considered neither secure nor confidential. Tocqueville makes no representation whatsoever concerning the security or confidentiality of your email messages and specifically makes no representation that any email message submitted through this website will be received by Tocqueville.

Any communications or material you transmit to this website by electronic mail or otherwise, including data, questions, comments, or suggestions will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary and will become the property of Tocqueville or its affiliates. Such communications or material may be used for any purpose, including, but not limited to, reproduction, disclosure, transmission, publication, broadcast, and posting. Furthermore, Tocqueville is free to use any ideas, concepts, know-how, or techniques contained in any communication you send to this website for any purpose whatsoever, including, but not limited to, developing and marketing products using such information.


Tocqueville collects and maintains certain nonpublic personal information in order to serve your financial needs, provide customer services, offer new products or services, and fulfill legal and regulatory requirements.

We may share nonpublic personal information with our affiliates (companies that are controlled or owned by us, or with which we share common ownership) for our everyday business purposes or for our own marketing purposes or for joint marketing with other financial companies. We may also disclose some or all of such information about you in very limited instances to other businesses, including non-affiliated third parties, as allowed by law, for the purpose of: (i) performing services for us or on our behalf to develop or maintain software; (ii) doing mailings on our behalf with assurances that under no circumstance will the information be used for any purpose other than that authorized by Tocqueville; (iii) responding to a subpoena, preventing fraud or complying with an inquiry by a government agency or regulator; and (iv) complying with the provisions of the USA Patriot Act in verifying the identity of clients.

To fulfill our commitment to protecting your privacy, Tocqueville has instituted firm practices to safeguard the nonpublic personal information that we maintain about you.  These include: (i) adopting procedures that put in place physical, electronic, and other safeguards to keep your personal information safe; (ii) limiting access to personal information to those employees who need it to perform their job duties; and (iii) requiring third parties that perform services for us to agree by contract to keep your information strictly confidential.
