Risk Considerations

Investing involves risk; principal loss is possible. There is no guarantee the Fund’s investment objectives will be achieved. These ETFs seek to generally track the investment results of an index; however the Funds may underperform, outperform or be more volatile than the referenced index. In addition, because the Index selects securities for inclusion based on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria, the Funds may forgo some market opportunities available to funds that don’t use these criteria.

The value of equity securities may decline significantly over short or extended periods of time. Growth stocks tend to be more volatile and can experience sharp price declines. Value stocks may not be fully recognized by the market and be undervalued. Depending on the capitalization and characteristics of the companies in the underlying securities, the Funds may underperform or be subject to increased volatility. These and other risk considerations are described in detail in the Fund’s prospectus.

Shares of ETFs are bought and sold at market price as opposed to net asset value. As a result, an investor may pay more than net asset value when buying and receive less than net asset value when selling. In addition, brokerage commissions will reduce returns. Fund shares are not individually redeemable directly with the Fund, but blocks of shares may be acquired from the Fund and tendered for redemption to the Fund by certain institutional investors in Creation Units.

Because a fund invests primarily in large-capitalization stocks, the Fund may underperform funds that invest primarily in stocks of smaller capitalization companies during periods when the stocks of such companies are in favor. Mid-capitalization may be subject to greater volatility than those that invest in larger companies, but may be less volatile than investments in smaller companies. Smaller companies are subject to greater volatility than those of larger companies.
