Access - Global region and country

Product Details

The BLDRS Europe Select ADR Index Fund (Fund) seeks to provide investment results that correspond generally, before fees and expenses, to the price and yield performance  of the BNY Mellon Europe Select ADR Index (Index). The Fund normally holds at least 95% of its total assets in depositary receipts (DR) that comprise the Index. The Index is capitalization-weighted and designed to track the performance of approximately 100 European market-based DRs. The Fund and the Index are rebalanced and reconstituted quarterly.

The Fund is an "index fund" that holds publicly traded DRs, negotiable U.S. securities that generally represent a non-U.S. company's publicly traded equity or debt, of non-U.S. companies in a particular geographic region or market represented by a specified relevant benchmark BNY Mellon ADR Index.

Monthly Standardized Report

Market 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. 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. After-tax returns reflect the highest federal income tax rate but exclude state and local taxes. Fund performance reflects fee waivers, absent which, performance data quoted would have been lower. After Tax Held and After Tax Sold are based on NAV.

Fund Inception: 11/13/2002

Shareholders may pay more than net asset value when they buy Fund shares and receive less than net asset value when they sell those shares, because shares are bought and sold at current market prices. Performance data quoted represents past performance, which is not a guarantee of future results.


 Risk & Other Information

Typically, security classifications used in calculating allocation tables are as of the last trading day of the previous month.

There are risks involved with investing in ETFs, including possible loss of money. Shares are not actively managed and are subject to risks similar to those of stocks, including those regarding short selling and margin maintenance requirements. Ordinary brokerage commissions apply. The Fund's return may not match the return of the Underlying Index.

The Fund holds securities of non-US and non-Canadian companies in the form of DRs, New York shares and Global Shares. Since the underlying securities of the Fund's DRs are usually denominated or quoted in currencies other than the US dollar, changes in foreign currency exchange rates may affect the value of the Fund's portfolio. Therefore, a strong US dollar will reduce returns for US investors while a weak US dollar will increase those returns.

Since underlying securities of the Fund's DRs trade on foreign exchanges at times when the US markets are not open for trading, the value of the DRs representing those underlying securities may change materially at times when the US markets are not open for trading, regardless of whether there is an active US market for Shares.

The Sponsor may direct the Trustee to terminate and liquidate the Fund — See "Termination of a Fund" in the prospectus for further information. In the event the Fund is terminated, the trading pattern of the Fund's Shares could be negatively affected.

Investing in securities of small and medium-sized companies may involve greater risk than is customarily associated with investing in large companies.

Foreign securities have additional risks, including exchange-rate changes, decreased market liquidity, political instability and taxation by foreign governments.

The MSCI Europe Index ND and the MSCI EAFE® Index ND are unmanaged indexes considered representative of stocks of developed European countries; and stocks of Europe, Australasia and the Far East, respectively. These indexes are computed using the net return, which withholds applicable taxes for non-resident investors. The S&P 500® Index is an unmanaged index considered representative of stocks of the US stock market.

The Global Industry Classification Standard was developed by and is the exclusive property and a service mark of MSCI, Inc. and Standard & Poor's.
