(To see the current holdings. Market performance is the price at which shares in the ETF can be bought or sold on the exchanges during trading hours, while the net asset value (NAV) represents the value of each share’s portion of the fund’s underlying assets and cash at the end of the trading day. As stated in the prospectus the total annual fund expenses are .98%, .95% with expense waivers (1). Short term performance, in particular, is not a good indication of the fund’s future performance, and an investment should not be made based solely on returns. The Fund does not have a track record of reporting to Investors or widely available research coverage which may result in price volatility.)

A shareholder is subject to the risk that his or her investment could lose money. The market price of securities owned by the Fund may go up or down, sometimes rapidly or unpredictably. Non-Diversification Risk: The Fund is non-diversified, which means that it may invest a greater percentage of its assets in a particular issuer than a diversified fund. Non-diversification increases the risk that the value of the Fund could go down because of the poor performance of a single investment or limited number of investments.
Foreign Securities Risk: Investments in the securities of non-U.S. issuers involve risks beyond those associated with investments in U.S. securities. These additional risks include greater market volatility, the availability of less reliable financial information, higher transactional and custody costs, taxation by foreign governments, decreased market liquidity and political instability. Some countries and regions have experienced security concerns, war or threats of war and aggression, terrorism, economic uncertainty, natural and environmental disasters and/or systemic market dislocations that have led, and in the future may lead, to increased short-term market volatility and may have adverse long-term effects on the U.S. and world economies and markets generally.
Depositary Receipts Risk: The Fund may invest in depositary receipts. Depositary receipts may be subject to certain of the risks associated with direct investments in the securities of foreign companies, such as currency, political, economic and market risks, because their values depend on the performance of the non-dollar denominated underlying foreign securities.
