Risks

This UBS Exchange Traded Fund invests primarily in equities and currency hedge derivatives, which are included in the MSCI Japan 100% hedged to USD. Investors require a corresponding risk tolerance and capacity. All investments are subject to market fluctuations. Every fund has specific risks, which may significantly increase under unusual market conditions. The fund's assets are passively managed. As a result, the net asset value of the fund is directly dependent on the performance of the underlying index. Losses that could be avoided via active management will not be offset. For funds with “hedged” in their name, currency and forward currency transactions may be carried out in order to extensively hedge the net asset value of the funds against the JPY.
