Important information

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. 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. The UBS (Irl) ETF plc is a recognized scheme under section 264 of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000. It does seek UK Reporting Fund 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.

Risks

This UBS Exchange Traded Fund invests in equities and may therefore be subject to high fluctuations in value. For this reason, an investment horizon of at least five years and corresponding risk tolerance and capacity are required. All investments are subject to market fluctuations. Every fund has specific risks, which can significantly increase under unusual market conditions. As a result, the net asset value of the funds assets is directly dependent on the performance of the underlying index. Losses that could be avoided via active management will not be offset.
