In addition to the usual risks referring to market fluctuations, securities and index type, the investor has to be aware that the funds detailed in this document are also exposed to other risks, such as: secondary market negotiations, differences between NAV and market prices, calculation changes, differences in publications of the index on behalf of the index provider, risks connected to the listing of the index components on different markets, risks connected to the use of derivatives.

There are also further risks these funds that replicate equity or bond indexes are exposed to. The investor is therefore required to have an adequate tolerance and capacity to bear such risks.

For a complete analysis of all the risks described we recommend to read carefully the prospectus.

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 46 equity indices. Investors can rest assured that their investments are in the best hands at UBS Asset Management with over 35 years' experience in passive management.

Your benefits of investing in equity ETFs at a glance

  • Broad ETF offering: Access to a wide range of equity ETFs, replicating more than 45 equity indices
  • Physical and synthetic index replication: Depending on the investor's preference, UBS offers ETFs with both types of replication
  • Fixed drag level for swap-based ETFs: The drag level is the total of all costs charged to the fund, including all costs incurred in connection with the swap. It follows that the fund replicates the index minus the drag level
  • Modern securities lending program: Established securities lending program via UBS and State Street with full overcollateralization
  • Experience in passive management: Investors can rest assured that their investments are in the best of hands at UBS Asset Management, which boasts over 35 years' experience in passive management
  • Local stock exchange listing: All UBS ETFs can be traded directly on the Borsa Italiana Stock Exchange in Milan

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.
