Exchange Traded Access Securities, ETRACS, are exchange-traded notes, or ETNs, an innovative class of investment products offering access to markets and strategies that may not be readily available to investors, and offer unique diversification opportunities in a number of different sectors. ETNs offer:
Access to asset classes with historically low correlations to more traditional asset classes
Convenience of an exchange-traded security
Transparent exposure to a published index.
ETRACS ETNs are senior unsecured notes issued by UBS AG, are traded on NYSE Arca, and can be bought and sold through a broker or financial advisor. An investment in ETRACS ETNs is subject to a number of risks, including the risk of loss of some or all of the investor's principal, and is subject to the creditworthiness of UBS. We urge you to read the more detailed explanation of risks described under Risk Factors in the prospectus supplement for the ETRACS ETN.
