Important Information

General ETF Risk Information

There are risks involved with investing in ETFs, including possible loss of money. Index-based ETFs are not actively managed. Actively managed ETFs do not necessarily seek to replicate the performance of a specified index. Both index-based and actively managed ETFs are subject to risks similar to stocks, including those related to short selling and margin maintenance. Ordinary brokerage commissions apply. The fund's return may not match the return of the underlying index.

Different types of investments involve varying degrees of risk and there can be no assurance that any specific investment will either be suitable or profitable for an investor's investment portfolio. The investment strategy of the funds referenced may include investments in equity securities, foreign securities, small and medium sized companies, as well as funds that concentrate in one specific industry or sector, all of which may increase the risk and volatility of the funds. Fixed income investments are subject to credit risk of the issuer and the effects of changing interest rates. The ETFs listed are subject to certain other risks. Please see the current prospectus for more information regarding the risks associated with an investment in the funds.

Beta is a measure of risk representing how a security is expected to respond to general market movements. Smart Beta represents an alternative and selection index based methodology that seeks to outperform a benchmark or reduce portfolio risk, or both in active or passive vehicles. Smart beta funds may underperform cap-weighted benchmarks and increase portfolio risk. PureBeta is a market-capitalization weighted methodology, and in no way refers to the purity or absence of errors or flaws in the underlying index's methodology or of the fund in seeking to track the investment results of the underlying index.
