ETF Risks. There are risks involved with investing in ETFs, including possible loss of money. ETFs may not always trade or price as expected. Generally, security classifications used in calculating allocation tables are as of the last trading day of the previous month. ETFs trade like stocks, are subject to investment risk, fluctuate in market value and may trade at prices above or below the ETFs net asset value. Diversification does not ensure a profit and may not protect against loss in declining markets. Investors should refer to the individual ETF prospectus for a more detailed discussion of the specific risks and considerations for an individual ETF.

Investing in a single sector may be subject to more volatility than funds investing in a diverse group of sectors. Brokerage commissions and ETF expenses will reduce returns. In general, ETFs can be expected to move up or down in value with the value of the applicable index. Although ETFs may be bought and sold on the exchange through any brokerage account, ETFs are not individually redeemable from the Fund. Investors may acquire ETFs and tender them for redemption through the Fund in Creation Unit Aggregations only, please see the prospectus (link below) for more details. Shares are not actively managed and are subject to risks including those regarding short selling and margin maintenance requirements. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.
