Precidian ETFs Trust
MAXISSM Nikkei 225 Index Fund

February 10, 2016

Supplement to the Prospectus dated July 28, 2015, as Amended and Restated October 1, 2015, and Supplemented on February 8, 2016
As previously reported, the Board of Trustees (the “Trustees”) of Precidian ETFs Trust (the “Trust”) has unanimously determined that it is in the best interests of the shareholders of the MAXISSM Nikkei 225 Index Fund (the “Fund”) to liquidate and terminate the Fund, and shares of the Fund will stop trading on the NYSE Arca, Inc. (“NYSE”), and will no longer be open to purchase by investors, at the close of regular trading on March 11, 2016 (the “Closing Date”).  The process of closing down and liquidating the Fund’s portfolio will then commence, and was originally scheduled to take place between March 12, 2016 and March 25, 2016.  The Fund has now shortened this schedule so that the Fund will liquidate on March 18, 2016 (the “Liquidation Date”).
On the Closing Date, the Fund will be closed to purchase by investors as of the close of regular trading on the NYSE.  The Fund will not accept purchase orders after the Closing Date.  The Fund will continue to pursue its investment objective until the Closing Date.
Shareholders may sell their holdings in the Fund prior to the Closing Date and customary brokerage charges may apply to these transactions.  However, from March 12 through the March 18, 2016, which is the Liquidation Date, shareholders only may be able to sell their shares to certain broker-dealers and there is no assurance that there will be a market for the Fund’s shares during this time period.  Between the Closing Date and the Liquidation Date, the Fund will be in the process of closing down and liquidating its portfolio.  This process will result in the Fund increasing its cash holdings and, as a consequence, not tracking its underlying index, which may not be consistent with the Fund’s investment objective and strategy.
On the Liquidation Date, the Fund will liquidate its assets and distribute cash pro rata to all remaining shareholders who have not previously redeemed or exchanged their shares.  These distributions are taxable events.  In addition, these payments to shareholders will include accrued capital gains and dividends, if any.  Once the distributions are complete, the Fund will terminate.
