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 is considered non-diversified and may be subject to greater risks than a diversified fund.

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

Investment in securities in emerging market countries involves risks not associated with investments in securities in developed countries.

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

Investments focused in a particular industry or sector, such as the gold and precious metals industry are subject to greater risk, and are more greatly impacted by market volatility, than more diversified investments.

American Depositary Receipts (ADRs) involve many of the same risks as those associated with direct investment in foreign securities. In addition, the underlying issuers of certain depositary receipts, particularly unsponsored or unregistered depositary receipts, are under no obligation to distribute shareholder communications to the holders of such receipts or to pass through to them any voting rights with respect to the deposited securities.

The dollar value of the fund's foreign investments will be affected by changes in the exchange rates between the dollar and the currencies in which those investments are traded.

Global Depositary Receipts involve the same risks as those associated with ADRs. They are also subject to currency, political, economic and market risks because their values depend on the performance of non-dollar denominated underlying foreign securities.

Equity risk is the risk that the value of equity securities, including common stocks, may fall due to both changes in general economic and political conditions that impact the market as a whole, as well as factors that directly relate to a specific company or its industry.

A natural or other disaster could occur in a geographic region in which the Fund invests, which could adversely impact the Fund's investments in the affected region.

Because the Fund invests a significant portion of its assets in companies that are domiciled in Canada, the Fund is particularly sensitive to political, economic and social conditions in Canada.

Since publicly traded limited partnerships are a less common form of organizational structure than corporations, limited partnership units may be less liquid than publicly traded common stock.

Tracking stock may decline in value even if the common stock of the larger company increases in value.
