Past performance is not a guide to future performance. You should remember that the value of investments and the income from them can go down as well as up and are not guaranteed. Changes in rates of exchange may cause the value of investments to fluctuate. The Fund will use derivatives as part of its investment capabilities. However, such instruments are inherently volatile and the Fund could be potentially exposed to additional risk and costs should the market move against it. In order to trade in derivative instruments we enter into an agreement with various counterparties. Whilst we assess the credit worthiness of each counterparty we enter into an agreement with, the Fund is at risk if that counterparty does not fulfil its obligations under the agreement. Any collateral paid by the Fund may not be returned, nor may any payments due to the Fund be made. The UBS ETF Sicav is a recognised scheme under section 264 of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000. It does seek UK distributor status. The protections offered by the UK’s regulatory system, and compensation under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, will not be available. The information mentioned herein is not intended to be construed as advice and is therefore not a recommendation to buy or sell shares.

This UBS Exchange Traded Fund invests primarily in equities and currency hedge derivatives, which are included in the MSCI United Kingdom 100% hedged to CHF. 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 GBP.
