Risk Considerations

Investing involves risk; principal loss is possible. There is no guarantee the Fund’s investment objectives will be achieved. This ETF seeks to generally track the investment results of an index; however the Fund 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 Fund 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. Investments in smaller companies are subject to greater volatility than those of larger companies. These and other risk considerations are described in detail in the Fund’s prospectus.

Returns quoted represent past performance which is no guarantee of future performance. Current performance may be lower or higher than the data shown. Total returns for periods of less than one year are cumulative. All other figures represent average annual total returns. Fund performance figures assume the reinvestment of dividends and capital gains distributions; the figures are pre-tax and net of expenses. Market price returns are based on the closing market price on the date shown.
