Important: Liquidity and Price Considerations

Exchange-traded funds ("ETFs") are structured so that individual investors can purchase and sell ETF shares on the applicable listing exchange at the current market price, and large institutional investors known as "authorized participants" (or "market makers") can purchase and sell ETF shares directly with an ETF sponsor/issuer at the ETF's next-determined net asset value. The ability of authorized participants to arbitrage any differences between the net asset value and the market price helps to ensure that the two prices typically will be close to one another during normal market conditions. At times, however, there can be pricing dislocations that result from stressed market conditions or other unforeseen events, such as trading halts or errors with trading infrastructure and systems. ETFs that have recently launched or that fail to attract a large amount of assets can also demonstrate market prices that have a wider premium or discount from the ETF's net asset value. If an ETF is not successful in implementing its investment strategy or fails to attract sufficient assets to realize economies of scale, the ETF sponsor/issuer may determine to liquidate the ETF, which could have negative tax consequences for shareholders and will result in the ETF incurring expenses in connection with the liquidation. In addition, if an ETF has only a limited number of authorized participants or where authorized participants are unwilling or unable to proceed with creation and redemption orders, ETF shares may trade at a premium or discount to net asset value and could be subject to delisting from the exchange.


ETFs' underlying investment portfolios face separate, but related, liquidity considerations. European ETFs that are structured as UCITS in accordance with the requirements of the EU UCITS Directive, which is typically the case in Europe, are subject to detailed requirements and constraints relating to the types of investments they can make (and in the case where the ETF seeks to track an index by directly holding all the constituent securities or a representative sample thereof and/or by employing derivatives to gain synthetic exposure to same, the requirements and constraints would apply to that index). Also, ETFs may invest a portion or all of their net assets in unlisted and/or illiquid securities. Illiquid and/or unlisted securities in which an ETF invests are subject to the risk that the fair value price determined by the ETF’s board of directors will differ from the actual price that the ETF would realize upon the sale or disposal of the security. Authorized participants that submit redemption orders of ETF shares may get illiquid securities back from the ETF in-kind, or the ETF may have to sell illiquid securities at a loss in order to generate cash to meet in-cash redemptions which sale may be at a price lower than that at which they were bought or than the ETF’s board of directions values them. Accordingly, in such circumstances customers could suffer an investment loss. These situations could occur with greater frequency or be more likely to occur during stressed market conditions and during days with high levels of redemption orders by authorized participants. Ultimately, ETF investors bear the cost of this market impact in the form of wider spreads to buy or sell ETF shares in the secondary market.
