Before investing in an ETF, be sure to carefully consider the fund’s objectives, risks, charges, and expenses. For a prospectus containing this and other important information, please contact a Client Services representative. Please read the prospectus carefully before investing.

ETFs are baskets of securities that may track a sector-specific, country-specific, or a narrow/broad-market index. ETFs trade on an exchange like a stock. ETFs are subject to risk similar to those of their underlying securities, including, but not limited to, market, sector, or industry risks, and those regarding short-selling and margin account maintenance.

To trade commission-free ETFs, you must be enrolled in the program. Eligible ETFs purchased commission-free must be held for at least 30 days. If you sell an ETF within 30 days of being purchased commission-free, a short-term trading fee will apply.
