Guide to Exchange Traded Funds
What are exchange traded funds?
Exchange traded funds (ETFs) are one of the fastest growing investment products in the world, offering investors an alternative solution to enhance portfolio diversification, flexibility and liquidity.
ETFs can be bought and sold on an exchange like individual stocks. They can contain a portfolio of securities designed to track a specific index, market sector or even cover the broad market. This flexibility means investors can use ETFs to gain the exposure and diversification they want, quickly and simply.
Commissions, management fees, brokerage fees and expenses all may be associated with Exchange Traded Funds. Please read the prospectus before investing. Exchange Traded Funds are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated.

Index performance does not represent trades that have actually been executed and therefore may under or over compensate for the impact, is any, of certain market factors, such as illiquidity. No representation is being made that an actual investment in accordance with the above will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to the index history. Indexes are unmanaged and do not reflect the payment of transaction costs, advisory fees or expenses that are associated with an investment in an investable product. An index’s performance is not illustrative of an investable product’s performance. Indexes are not securities in which direct investments can be made.
