Fund Quality Breakdown

Quality Breakdown

Barclays uses the "middle rating" of Moody's, S&P, and Fitch to determine a security's index classification. If only two of the agencies rate a security, then the most conservative (lowest) rating will be used. If only one rating agency rates a security, that one rating will be used. Where there are no security level ratings, an issuer rating may be used to determine index classification.  Barclays Index breakdowns are grouped into larger categories.  For example, AAA+ and AAA are listed as Aaa; AA1, AA2, and AA3 are listed as Aa, etc.

Barclays Global HY ex US Domiciled 350mn+ Cash Pay Index

The Barclays Global HY ex US Domiciled 350mn+ Cash Pay Index is designed to be a measure of the international high yield, fixed rate, fixed income corporate markets of issuers domiciled outside the United States, including in emerging markets. High yield securities are generally rated below investment grade and are commonly referred to as "junk bonds."  The securities in the Index must have a minimum 350 million market capitalization outstanding in local currency terms and at least 1 year remaining to maturity.  Securities must be fixed rate, although step-up coupons and coupons that change according to a predetermined schedule are permitted. Additionally, securities must be rated high yield (Ba1/BB+/BB+ or below), but not defaulted, using the middle rating of Moody's Investors Service, Inc., Standard & Poor's, Inc., and Fitch Inc. after dropping the highest and lowest available ratings.

Important Risk Information

In general, ETFs can be expected to move up or down in value with the value of the applicable index. Although ETF shares may be bought and sold on the exchange through any brokerage account, ETF shares are not individually redeemable from the Fund. Investors may acquire ETFs and tender them for redemption through the Fund in Creation Unit Aggregations only. Please see the prospectus for more details.

The Fund invests by sampling the index, holding a range of securities that, in the aggregate, approximates the full Index in terms of key risk factors and other characteristics. This may cause the Fund to experience tracking errors relative to performance of the index.

Investing in high yield fixed income securities, otherwise known as "junk bonds", is considered speculative and involves greater risk of loss of principal and interest than investing in investment grade fixed income securities. These Lower-quality debt securities involve greater risk of default or price changes due to potential changes in the credit quality of the issuer.

Foreign investments involve greater risks than U.S. investments, including political and economic risks and the risk of currency fluctuations, all of which may be magnified in emerging markets.

Bond funds contain interest rate risk (as interest rates rise bond prices usually fall); the risk of issuer default; issuer credit risk; liquidity risk; and inflation risk.

Non-diversified funds that focus on a relatively small number of securities tend to be more volatile than diversified funds and the market as a whole.
