As the ETFs have less than 10 years of performance history, the investment risk level of each ETF is calculated using the return history of the ETF and the return history of a reference index, which is expected to reasonably approximate the standard deviation of the ETF, for the remainder of the 10-year period.

No material changes have been made to the investment objectives, strategies or management of the ETFs.
