Important information

It’s important to understand that ETFs are not guaranteed products – just like any investment in the stock or bond market, your initial investment is subject to loss. The value of your investment and income from it will fluctuate and your initial investment is not guaranteed. 

The fund specific risks on any ETF will vary depending on what the ETF invests in. For example, emerging market and commodities investments are often subject to higher levels of volatility and bond investments are often sensitive to movements in interest rates.  It is really important to understand the fund specific risks of any fund before you invest. That is why investors must read the Key Investor Information Document (KIID) prior to investing.
