and expenses. To obtain a prospectus or summary prospectus which contains this

ETFs trade like stocks, fluctuate in market value and may trade at prices
above or below the ETFs net asset value. Brokerage commissions and ETF
expenses will reduce returns.

Foreign investments involve greater risks than US investments, including
political and economic risks and the risk of currency fluctuations, all of
which may be magnified in emerging markets.
