Read the prospectus carefully before investing. Investing involves risk including possible loss of principal.

Past performance is not a guarantee of future results.

ETFs are subject to risks similar to those of stocks, including those related to short-selling and margin account maintenance, if applicable. Funds that emphasize exposure to high beta, high volatility or high momentum stocks are seen as having a higher risk profile than the overall market. However, a portfolio comprised of high beta or high volatility stocks may not produce investment exposure that is more sensitive or has higher variability to changes in such stocks’ price levels. Positive momentum stocks may experience periods of relative underperformance and may not produce investment experience consistent with prior performance. Funds that emphasize exposure to low beta or low volatility stocks are seen as having a lower risk profile than the overall market. However, a portfolio comprised of low beta or low volatility stocks may not produce investment exposure that is less sensitive or has lower variability to a change in price level. The funds are passively managed and may not match or achieve a high degree of correlation with the return of their corresponding Index. As with all investments, there are certain risks of investing in an ETF, and you could lose money on an investment in an ETF.
