Most PowerShares ETFs seek to replicate, before fees and expenses, the
performance of the applicable Index, and are not actively managed. This
means that the Sub-advisor will not attempt to take defensive positions in
declining marketsand the ETF will continue to provide exposureto each of
the securities in the Index regardless of whether the financial condition of
one or more issuers of securities in the Index deteriorates. In contrast, if
a PowerShares ETF is actively managed, then the Sub-advisor has discretion to
adjust that PowerShares ETF's holdings in accordance with the ETF's investment
objectives and strategies.
ETFs are not diversified investments.
