Investments involve risk including possible loss of principal. ETFs have the same risks as the underlying securities traded on the exchange throughout the day. Redemptions are limited and often commissions are charged on each trade, and ETFs may trade at a premium or discount to their net asset value. The Funds are not actively managed and do not, therefore, seek returns in excess of their respective Index. The Funds’ returns may not match the returns of their respective Index for a number of reasons, including: the Fund incurs operating expenses not applicable to the Index and incurs costs in buying and selling securities; the Fund may not be fully invested at times; differences in the valuation of securities and differences between the Fund’s portfolio and the Index resulting from legal restrictions, cost, or liquidity constraints. The ETFs may invest in small and medium companies. The earnings and prospects of these companies are more volatile than larger companies. Small and medium companies may have limited markets, product lines, or financial resources and lack management experience and may experience higher failure rates than larger companies. In general the price of a fixed income security falls when interest rates rise. ETFs focused on high dividend strategies may not be successful. Dividend paying stocks may fall out of favor relative to the overall market. ETFs may invest in securities included in, or representative of securities included in, the index, regardless of their investment merits. ETFs with a foreign focus are subject to the special risks associated with investments in foreign markets which may include less liquidity, exchange rate risk, greater volatility, less developed or less efficient trading markets, lack of comprehensive company information, political instability and differing auditing and legal standards.

Strategic beta --often called “smart beta” --refers to a growing group of indexes and the investment products that track them. The majority of these indexes aim to enhance returns or minimize risk relative to a traditional market capitalization-weighted benchmark.
