SAN ANTONIO–July 6, 2020– U.S. Global Investors, Inc. (Nasdaq: GROW) (“the Company”), a boutique registered investment advisory firm specializing in gold and precious metals, natural resources and emerging markets, is pleased to announce that it has recently changed the name and strategy of its Holmes Macro Trends Fund (MEGAX). Effective July 1, 2020, it is now the Global Luxury Goods Fund, ticker symbol USLUX.

USLUX provides investors access to companies around the world that are involved in the design, manufacture and sale of products and services that are not considered to be essential but are highly desired within a culture of society. Such companies have historically seen their sales grow faster on an annual basis than both consumers’ disposable income and sales of basic household products. That was the case in every year from 2010 to 2019, with the one exception in 2015.
