During the weekend of August 22/23, our third-party Administrator (The Bank of New York Mellon – BNYM) experienced a technical malfunction resulting in it being unable to calculate timely NAVs for its mutual funds and ETF clients, including the PowerShares ETFs. As we disclosed to you last week, we experienced a delay in the dissemination of the NAV. PowerShares worked aggressively with BNYM to resolve the issue. We are pleased to report that the malfunction has been corrected by the Administrator and that the system is back to normal. The NAV that is being disseminated today is the most recent NAV for the Funds (as of Thursday, September 3).
For primary market participants, please note that, in accordance with the Prospectus and the SAI for each PowerShares ETF, orders received before the cut-off time on any given day were processed at the NAV that was calculated by the Administrator for that day. Given the delay in the calculation and dissemination of the NAV by the Administrator, we expect that most of the orders that the Administrator received last week will settle in the normal settlement cycle. Certain orders may experience (or have experienced) a delay in settlement. Secondary market transactions were not affected by the delay and are anticipated to settle in ordinary course.
The PowerShares Balanced Multi-Asset Allocation Portfolio (the "Fund") is an actively managed exchange-traded fund (ETF) that seeks to provide current income and capital appreciation by allocating through a balanced investment style that seeks to maximize diversification potential. The Fund is a "fund of funds," meaning that it invests its assets in the shares of other exchange-traded funds, rather than in securities of individual companies. The Fund's target allocation of total assets: 50% to 70% in equity ETFs, 30% to 50% in fixed income ETFs and 10% to 25% in underlying ETFs that invest in foreign stocks and bonds as well as American depositary receipts (ADRs) and global depositary receipts (GDRs). Invesco Advisers Inc., the sub-adviser to the Fund (Sub-Adviser), selects investments based on quantitative and qualitative criteria to strategically allocate across broad asset classes and factors within those classes.
This is a new Fund and has no full-year Fund performance to report as of most recent quarter end. 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 applicable fee waivers, absent which, performance data quoted would have been lower. After Tax Held and After Tax Sold are based on NAV. Returns less than one year are cumulative.
The Custom PowerShares Balanced Allocation Index consists of 60% MSCI All Country World Index and 40% Bloomberg Barclays US Aggregate Index. An investment cannot be made in an index.
The MSCI All Country World Index (MSCI ACWI) is a free float-adjusted market capitalization index that is designed to measure equity market performance of developed and emerging markets. The index is computed using the net return, which withholds applicable taxes for non-resident investors.
The Bloomberg Barclays US Aggregate Index is an unmanaged index considered representative of the US investment-grade, fixed-rate bond market.
There are risks involved with investing in ETFs, including possible loss of money. Actively managed ETFs do not necessarily seek to replicate the performance of a specified index. 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 Index. The Fund is subject to certain other risks. Please see the current prospectus for more information regarding the risk associated with an investment in the Fund.
The Fund is subject to the risks of the underlying funds. Market fluctuations may change the target weightings in the underlying funds and certain factors may cause the Fund to withdraw its investments therein at a disadvantageous time.
The investment techniques and risk analysis used by the portfolio managers may not produce the desired results.
The Fund typically will hold a small number of positions (approximately 10-20 Underlying ETFs). To the extent that a significant portion of the Fund’s total assets is invested in a limited number of holdings, the appreciation or depreciation of any one Underlying ETF may have a greater impact on the Fund’s NAV than it would if the Fund held a greater number of constituents.
The Fund is non-diversified and may experience greater volatility than a more diversified investment.
Debt securities are affected by changing interest rates and changes in their effective maturities and credit quality.
The risks of investing in securities of foreign issuers can include fluctuations in foreign currencies, political and economic instability, and foreign taxation issues.
