Risk Considerations

Exchange-Traded Funds (ETF): The value of an ETF may be more volatile than the underlying portfolio of securities it is designed to track. The costs to the fund of owning shares of an ETF may exceed the cost of investing directly in the underlying securities.
Equity REITs: The portfolio may be negatively affected by factors specific to the real estate market, such as interest rates, leverage, property, and management; and factors specific to investing in a pooled vehicle such as poor management and concentration risk.
Preferred Stocks: Preferred stocks may decline in price, fail to pay dividends, or be illiquid.
Industry/Sector Concentration: A portfolio that focuses its investments in a particular industry or sector will be more sensitive to conditions that affect that industry or sector than a non-concentrated portfolio.
Passive Strategy/Index Risk: A passive investment strategy seeking to track the performance of the underlying Index may result in the portfolio holding securities regardless of market conditions or their current or projected performance. This could cause the portfolio's returns to be lower than if the portfolio employed an active strategy.
Correlation to Index: The performance of the portfolio and its index may vary due to factors such as flows, transaction costs, whether the portfolio obtains every security in the index, and timing differences associated with additions to and deletions from the index.
REIT Interest Rate: When interest rates rise, the value of REIT securities (including preferred securities) can be expected to decline. The current historically low interest rate environment increases the risk associated with rising interest rates.
Small Companies: The market price of equity securities may be affected by financial market, industry, or issuer-specific events. Focus on a particular style or on small or medium-sized companies may enhance that risk.
Market Price/NAV: At the time of purchase and/or sale, an investor's shares may have a market price that is above or below the fund's NAV, which may increase the investor's risk of loss.
Market Volatility: Local, regional, or global events such as war, acts of terrorism, the spread of infectious illness or other public health issues, recessions, or other events could have a significant impact on the portfolio and its investments, including hampering the ability of the portfolio manager(s) to invest the portfolio's assets as intended.
Prospectus: For additional information on risks, please see the fund's prospectus.

Investment return and principal value will fluctuate so your shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.

Closing Price:
 The Closing Price is the price of the last reported trade on the fund's primary exchange. If there has been no reported trade for a particular date, the Closing Price represents the 4PM Bid/Offer Midpoint. 

4PM Bid/Offer Midpoint: The midpoint between the highest bid and the lowest offer on the listing exchange, as of the time that the Fund's NAV is calculated (usually 4:00pm Eastern Time).

Premium/Discount: The amount the Fund is trading above or below the reported NAV (based on 4PM Bid/Offer Midpoint).

The Fund is an exchange-traded fund (“ETF”). The “net asset value” (NAV) of the Fund is determined at the close of each business day, and represents the dollar value of one share of the Fund; it is calculated by taking the total assets of the Fund, subtracting total liabilities, and dividing by the total number of shares outstanding. The NAV of the Fund is not necessarily the same as its intraday trading value. Fund investors should not expect to buy or sell shares at NAV because shares of ETFs such as the Fund are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Thus, shares may trade at a premium or discount to their NAV in the secondary market. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns.

NAV returns are calculated using the Fund’s daily 4:00 p.m. NAV, and include the reinvestment of all dividends and other distributions (reinvested at the Fund's NAV on distribution ex-date). Market price returns are calculated using the 4:00 pm midpoint between the bid and offer, and include the reinvestment of all dividends and other distributions (reinvested at the 4:00pm bid/offer midpoint on distribution ex-date). Market price returns do not represent the return you would receive if you traded at other times.

30-day SEC Yield is a standardized yield calculated according to a formula set by the SEC, and is subject to change.

Distribution Rate is the annual rate that an investor would receive if the most recent distribution remained the same going forward. The rate represents a single distribution from the Fund and does not represent total return of the Fund. The distribution rate is calculated by annualizing the most recent distribution and dividing it by the most recent NAV.

Returns for periods of less than one year are cumulative total returns.
