There are risks associated with investing, including possible loss of principal.
Foreign investing involves special risks, such as risk of loss from currency fluctuation
or political or economic uncertainty. Investments in currency involve additional
special risks, such as credit risk and interest rate fluctuations. Derivative investments
can be volatile and these investments may be less liquid than other securities,
and more sensitive to the effect of varied economic conditions. As these Funds can
have high concentrations in some issuers, the Funds can be adversely impacted by
changes affecting those issuers. Due to the investment strategy of these Funds they
may make higher capital gain distributions than other ETFs. Funds focusing their
investments on certain sectors and/or smaller companies increase their vulnerability
to any single economic or regulatory development. This may result in greater share
price volatility. Please read each Fund's prospectus for specific details regarding
each Fund's risk profile.
