You can lose money by investing in the Fund. Any investment in the Fund should be part of an overall investment program rather than a complete program. An investment in the Fund may be subject to risks which include, among others, investing in concentration, equity securities, index tracking and data, consumer staples, financial services, the health care, information technology, underlying fund, market, medium-capitalization companies, non-diversification, operational and replication management risks, which may make these investments volatile in price or difficult to trade. Medium-capitalization companies may be subject to elevated risks. The Fund's assets may be concentrated in a particular sector and may be subject to more risk than investments in a diverse group of sectors.
