Facts and Characteristics
Shares of ETFs are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemable.
The Fund’s investment performance, because it is a fund of funds, depends on the investment performance of the Underlying Sector ETFs in which it invests.
An investment in the Fund is subject to the risks associated with the Underlying Sector ETFs that comprise the Underlying Index. The Fund will indirectly pay a proportional share of the asset-based fees of the Underlying Sector ETFs in which it invests.
The Fund is considered nondiversified and as a result may experience greater volatility than a diversified fund.
The Fund employs a “passive management” - or indexing - investment approach and seeks investment results that correspond (before fees and expenses) generally to the performance of its underlying index. Unlike many investment companies, the Fund is not “actively” managed. Therefore, it would not necessarily sell or buy a security unless that security is removed from or added to the underlying index, respectively.
