ETFs are a type of exchange-traded investment product that must register as either an open-end investment company (generally known as “funds”) or a unit investment trust. ETFs are not mutual funds.
Unlike mutual funds, individual shares of ETFs are not redeemable directly with the issuer. ETF shares are a collection of securities bought and sold at market price, which may be higher or lower than the net asset value (NAV). Investment returns will vary based on market conditions and volatility, so that an investor's shares, when redeemed or sold, may be worth more or less than their original cost. ETFs are subject to risks similar to those of their underlying securities.
Be aware that certain mutual funds may be subject to separate and additional redemption fees imposed by the particular fund. Refer to that fund’s current prospectus for details.
Transaction fees may apply to certain mutual funds. Transaction fees, where applicable, will be noted during online order entry or via your registered representative during broker-assisted trades.
