Disclaimer: Past performance is not a guide to future performance. The value of investments and the income from them may go down as well as up and are not guaranteed. Investors may not get back the amount originally invested. Changes in rates of exchange may cause the value of this investment to fluctuate. Investments in less developed markets may be more volatile than investments in more established markets. Synthetic replicated ETFS will use derivatives as part of their investment capabilities. These instruments carry a material level of risk and the Fund could potentially experience higher levels of volatility should the market move against them. 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. Some of the markets in which the Fund may effect derivative transactions are “over-the-counter” or “interdealer” markets, which may be illiquid and are sometimes subject to larger spreads than exchange-traded derivative transactions. The participants in such markets are typically not subject to credit evaluation and regulatory oversight, which would be the case with members of “exchange-based” markets. This exposes the Fund to the risk that a counterparty will not settle a transaction in accordance with its terms and conditions because of a credit or liquidity problem with the counterparty. Delays in settlement may also result from disputes over the terms of the contract (whether or not bona fide) since such markets may lack the established rules and procedures for swift settlement of disputes among market participants found in "exchange-based” markets. These factors may cause the Fund to suffer a loss due to adverse market movements while replacement transactions are executed or otherwise.
