Risk Definitions

Standard Deviation A statistical measure of the historical volatility of an investment, computed using 36 monthly returns. More generally, a measure of the extent to which numbers are spread around their average. The higher the number, the more volatility is to be expected.
Sharpe Ratio A risk-adjusted measure developed by William F. Sharpe, calculated using standard deviation and excess return to determine reward per unit of risk. The higher the Sharpe ratio, the better the fund's risk-adjusted performance.
Beta Beta is a statistical measure of volatility relative to the overall market, usually the S&P 500. A positive beta indicates movement in the same direction as the market, while a negative beta indicates movement inverse to the market. Beta for the market is generally considered to be 1. A beta above 1 or below -1 indicates more volatility than the market. A beta between 1 to -1 indicates less volatility than the market.
A measurement of how closely an investment's performance correlates with the performance of a benchmark, such as the S&P 500, and thus a measurement of what portion of its performance may be explained by the performance of the overall market or index. Values for R-squared range from 0 to 100, where 0 indicates no correlation and 100 indicates perfect correlation.

*Morningstar category is based on the underlying securities of the ETF and not the objective. The Morningstar Rating™ is provided for those exchange-traded funds (“ETFs”) with at least a three-year history. Ratings are based on the ETF’s Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure which accounts for variation in monthly performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. An ETF’s risk-adjusted return includes a brokerage commission estimate. This estimate is intended to reflect what an average investor would pay when buying or selling an ETF. PLEASE NOTE, this estimate is subject to change and the actual brokerage commission an investor pays may be higher or lower than this estimate. Morningstar compares each ETF’s risk-adjusted return to the open-end mutual fund rating breakpoints for that category. Consistent with the open-end mutual fund ratings, the top 10% of ETFs in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The overall rating for an ETF is based on a weighted average of the time-period ratings (e.g., the ETF’s 3-, 5-, and 10-year rating). The determination of an ETF’s rating does not affect the retail open end mutual fund data published by Morningstar. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

Performance displayed represents past performance, which is no guarantee of future results. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate so that when shares are redeemed, they may be worth more or less than original cost. Total returns reflect the reinvestment of all dividends. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted. For up-to-date fund performance, including performance current to the most recent month-end, please visit the ETF performance page. ETFs are subject to third party transaction fees/commissions. Net asset value (NAV) is calculated by subtracting total liabilities from total assets, then dividing by the number of shares outstanding. Market close is the last price at which shares are traded. Fund shares may trade at, above or below NAV. For additional information, see the fund’s prospectus.

Performance results for periods under one year are short-term and may not provide an adequate basis for evaluating the performance potential of the fund over varying market conditions or economic cycles.

Pure style ETFs may not be suitable for all investors. The ETFs are subject to the risk that large, medium and small-capitalization stocks may under-perform other segments of the equity market or the equity market as a whole •Value stocks are subject to the risk that the intrinsic value of the stock may never be realized by the market or that the price goes down. Growth stocks typically invest a high portion of their earnings back into their business and may lack the dividend yield that could cushion their decline in a market downturn. Growth stocks may be more volatile than other stocks because they are more sensitive to investor perceptions regarding the growth potential of the issuing company. • The Funds are subject to the risk that unanticipated early closings of securities exchanges and other financial markets may result in the Fund´s inability to buy or sell securities or other financial instruments on that day. • In certain circumstances, it may be difficult for the Funds to purchase and sell particular investments within a reasonable time at a fair price. • Investments in securities, in general, are subject to market risks that may cause their prices to fluctuate over time. An investment in the Funds may lose money. • Unlike many investment companies, the Funds are not actively "managed." This means that based on market and economic conditions, the Fund’s’ performance could be lower than other types of funds that may actively shift their portfolio assets to take advantage of market opportunities or to lessen the impact of a market decline. • Tracking error risk refers to the risk that the Advisor may not be able to cause the Funds´ performance to match or correlate to that of the Funds´ Underlying Index, either on a daily or aggregate basis. Tracking error risk may cause the Funds’ performance to be less than you expect. • Shares may trade below their net asset value ("NAV"). The NAV of shares will fluctuate with changes in the market value of the Funds’ holdings. In addition, although the Funds´ shares are currently listed on NYSE Arca, Inc. (the "Exchange"), there can be no assurance that an active trading market for shares will develop or be maintained. • Each Fund is considered nondiversified and can invest a greater portion of its assets in securities of individual issuers than a diversified Fund. As a result, changes in the market value of a single security could cause greater fluctuations in the value of fund shares than would occur in a more diversified Fund. •See Prospectus for more details
