Important Risk Information

There are risks involved with investing in ETFs, including possible loss of money. Shares are not actively managed and are subject to risks similar to those of stocks, including those regarding short selling and margin maintenance requirements. Ordinary brokerage commissions apply. The Funds’ returns may not match the return of the Underlying Indexes.

The Funds’ underlying securities may be subject to call risk, which may result in the Funds having to reinvest the proceeds at lower interest rates, resulting in a decline in the Funds’ income.

The Funds’ use of a representative sampling approach will result in its holding a smaller number of bonds than are in the underlying Index, and may be subject to greater volatility.

There is no guarantee that the Funds’ income will be exempt from federal or state income taxes.

Municipal insurance doesn’t protect against losses in the Funds.

Municipal securities may be affected by political changes as well as uncertainties in the municipal market related to taxation, legislative changes or the rights of municipal security holders. The market for municipal bonds may also be less liquid than for taxable bonds.

Puerto Rico’s current economic problems increase the risk of investing in Puerto Rican municipal obligations, including the risk of potential issuer default, and also heighten the risk that the prices of Puerto Rican municipal obligations, and the Fund’s net asset value, will experience greater volatility. Please see the prospectus supplement for complete information.

Investments in fixed-income securities, such as notes and bonds, carry interest rate and credit risk. Interest rate risk refers to the risk that bond prices generally fall as interest rates rise and vice versa. Credit risk is the risk of loss on an investment due to the deterioration of an issuer’s financial health.
