Risks

The Fund should be considered a speculative trading instrument and is not necessarily appropriate for investors who seek to avoid or minimize their exposure to stock market volatility.

Principal Investment Risks: Investors should consider the following risk factors and special considerations associated with investing in the Fund, which may cause you to lose money. Investors should also note that the risk factors titled “Put Option Risk,” “Equity Risk” and “Implied Volatility Risk” concern the features of the Fund from which the Fund expects to derive its investment return. These risk factors have been summarized for this document. See the prospectus for additional detail on each of these risk factors.

Investment Risk: An investment in the Fund is subject to investment risk, including the possible loss of the entire principal investment.

Put Option Risk. Options are generally subject to volatile swings in price based on changes in value of underlying instrument, and options written by the Fund may be particularly subject to this risk as the underlying stocks are selected by the Index Provider to have high volatility. While the Fund will collect premiums on the options it writes, the Fund’s risk of loss may substantially outweigh the gains to the Fund from the receipt of such option premiums.
