Key risks

The value of an investment and any income taken from it is not guaranteed and can go down as well as up. You may not get back the amount you originally invested.

Past performance is not a guide to the future.

An investment in the ETF involves a significant degree of risk. Any decision to invest should be based on the information contained in the relevant prospectus. Prospective investors should obtain their own independent accounting, tax and legal advice and should consult their own professional advisers to ascertain the suitability of the ETF as an investment.

The value of the shares in the ETF is directly affected by increases and decreases in the value of the Index. Accordingly the value of a share in the ETF may go up or down and a shareholder may lose some or the entire amount invested.

The ETF's ability to closely track the Index will be affected by its ability to purchase and/or sell the Index constituents and any legal or regulatory restrictions or disruptions affecting them.

The ETF's ability to closely track the Index will also be affected by transaction costs and taxes incurred when adjusting its investment portfolio generally and/or to mirror any periodic adjustments to the constituents of the Index. There can be no certainty that ETF shares can always be bought or sold on a stock exchange or that the market price at which the ETF shares may be traded on a stock exchange will reflect the performance of the Index.

The ETF is subject to the risk that third party service providers (such as a bank entering into swaps with the ETF or the ETF's depositary) may go bankrupt or fail to pay money due to the ETF or return property belonging to the ETF.

If the Index provider stops calculating the Index or if the ETF’s license to track the Index is terminated, the ETF may have to be closed.

It may not always be possible to buy and sell ETF shares on a stock exchange or at prices closely reflecting the NAV.

There is no capital guarantee or protection on the value of the ETF. Investors can lose all the capital invested in the ETF.

Please refer to the “Risk Factors” section of the Issuer’s Prospectus and the Fund Supplement.
