Equity ETF Investing efficiently in global markets

Equity markets

Equity ETF shares give you access to the major equity markets of the world. Whether you choose to invest in the US, Asia/Pacific, Europe, Japan, emerging markets - a single transaction in UBS ETFs is a liquid and cost-effective way to invest in index funds.

How to invest in equity ETFs

Buying ETF shares means you are purchasing shares of a portfolio that tracks the yield and return of its native index. The success of these index fund shares is therefore pinned to the index they follow and could be entire markets or sectors. Diversifying provides the opportunity to profit from growth potential whilst spreading investment risk. This is achievable through investing in various asset classes or across several countries and regions.

UBS offers access to a wide range of equity ETFs, replicating more than 45 equity indices. Investors can rest assured that their investments are in the best hands at UBS Asset Management with over 30 years' experience in passive management.

Two objectives - one solution

Stocks in whatever form are undoubtedly a component of any investor's portfolio, but investing in a single stock also increases the risk. Broadly diversified investment in entire markets is a better option as it offers you the opportunity to profit from the growth potential of entire regions while spreading investment risk more widely.

Returns advantage through cost benefits

When strategically allocating assets, investors should keep investment costs as low as possible. This gives them a returns advantage from the outset as costs tend to have the most significant impact on performance.

Diversification advantage

In addition, diversification plays a key role by spreading risk. Diversification should be achieved by investing either in various asset classes or across several countries and regions.

An investment in an exchange traded fund (ETF) allows investors to pursue both of these objectives. UBS ETFs on global equity markets offer broad diversification in a straightforward way: With just a single transaction, investors can cost-effectively tap the market potential of entire regions while benefitting from the opportunities offered by a wide range of sectors. Moreover, costs are kept to an absolute minimum compared to other investment options.

UBS ETFs invest in various asset classes

For example, equities, bonds, commodities, precious metals, hedge funds and real estate, and may therefore be subject to high fluctuations in value. An investment in these funds is therefore only suitable for investors with an investment horizon of at least five years and a corresponding risk tolerance/capacity.

Market fluctuations

Every fund has specific risks that may increase sharply in unusual market conditions. The net asset value of the fund therefore depends directly on the performance of the underlying index.

Losses

Losses are not offset. For more information about the risks, please see the prospectus.

Currency risks

If the currency of a financial product or financial service is not the same as your reference currency. The performance may increase or decrease due to currency fluctuations.

Risks of restricted or increased liquidity in the fund (liquidity risk)

There are risks that may negatively impact the liquidity of the fund. This may result in the fund temporarily or permanently being unable to meet its payment obligations or it temporarily or permanently being unable to fulfill redemption requests from investors. It may occur that the investors would not be able to hold the instrument for the planned holding period and the invested capital or parts thereof may be unavailable indefinitely. If liquidity risks are realized, it may also occur that the net asset value of the fund, and therefore also the unit value, would fall, for example if the company is forced, where legally permissible, to sell assets for the fund at below the market value.

Counterparty risk including credit/receivables risk

There are risks that may arise for the fund as part of a contractual relationship with another party (so-called counterparty). In this respect there is a risk that the contractual party may no longer be able to fulfill its obligations under the contract. These risks may negatively impact the performance of the fund and are therefore detrimental to the unit value and the capital invested by the investor. If the investor sells units in the fund at a time when a counterparty or central clearing counterparty has defaulted and therefore the value of the fund has been negatively impacted, it is possible that the investor may not receive all or any of the money he/she has invested in the fund. As such, the investor could lose some or even all of the capital invested in the fund.

Operational and other risks for the fund

Operational risks refer to risks that may, for example, arise as a result of insufficient internal processes as well as human or system errors at the company or external third parties. In particular, this includes risks resulting from criminal acts, misuse or natural disasters, legal or political risks, changes to tax conditions or custody risks. These risks may negatively impact the performance of the fund and are therefore detrimental to the unit value and the capital invested by the investor. If an investor sells units in the fund at a time when the prices of the assets contained in the fund are lower than when they were acquired, he/she may not receive all or any of the money he/she has invested in the fund. As such, the investor could lose some or even all of the capital invested in the fund.

Specific risks

These risks are not exhaustive. Investments in a product should be made only after careful study of the current prospectus. The distribution of this information is permitted only under the conditions provided by applicable law.
