Investment Style

The investment manager evaluates a number of factors in identifying investment opportunities and constructing the ETF's portfolio. The investment manager considers local, national and global economic conditions, market conditions, interest rate movements and other relevant factors to determine the allocation of the ETF's assets among different issuers, industry sectors and maturities. The investment manager, in connection with selecting individual investments for the ETF, evaluates a security based on its potential to generate income and/or capital appreciation. The investment manager considers, among other factors, the creditworthiness of the issuer of the security and the various features of the security, such as its interest rate, yield, maturity, any call features and value relative to other securities.

Market Price is based on the midpoint of the bid/ask spread at 4 p.m. ET and does not represent the returns an investor would receive if shares were traded at other times.
