The Funds may also be subject to information technology risk and small and mid-capitalization company risk due to a greater number of IPOs in these sectors. The Funds may hold securities in the form of Depository Receipts, REITs, Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs) which have greater risks than common shares. The strategy has high portfolio turnover and securities lending risks. ETF returns may not match the return of the respective index. The ETF is classified as a non-diversified investment company and is subject to concentration risk.
