There are risks involved with investing in ETFs including possible loss of money. Shares are actively managed and are subject to risk similar to stocks, including those related to short selling and margin maintenance. Ordinary brokerage commissions apply.
Shares are not individually redeemable and owners of the shares may acquire those shares from the Funds and tender those shares for redemption to the Funds in Creation Unit aggregations only, typically consisting of 50,000 shares.
