Important UCITS Information

The Fund is offered solely to non-U.S. investors under the terms and conditions of the Fund's current Prospectus. The Prospectus contains important information about the Fund and should be read carefully before investing. A copy of the full Prospectus and KIID for the Fund may be obtained in the forms and literature section of this website, or by contacting the local Paying Agent through the Fund's Transfer Agent, State Street Fund Services (Ireland) Limited.

Investments carry risks, including possible loss of principal. Additional risks may be associated with investments in emerging markets, including currency fluctuations, illiquidity, volatility, and political and economic risks. Investments in small- and mid-capitalization companies may increase the risk of greater price fluctuations. Portfolios investing in bonds have the same interest rate, inflation, and credit risks that are associated with the underlying bonds. The value of bonds will fluctuate relative to changes in interest rates, decreasing when interest rates rise. This effect is more pronounced for longer-term bonds. Unlike bonds, bond funds have ongoing fees and expenses. Investments in mortgage-backed securities (MBS) may bear additional risk. Investments in lower rated and unrated bonds may be more sensitive to default, downgrades, and market volatility; these investments may also be less liquid than higher rated bonds. Investments in derivatives are subject to the risks associated with the securities or other assets underlying the pool of securities, including illiquidity and difficulty in valuation. A synthetic short position will lose value as the security's price increases. Theoretically, the loss on a synthetic short can be unlimited. Investments in the Fund are not insured, nor are they bank deposits or guaranteed by a bank or any other entity.

Performance data shown represents past performance and is no guarantee of future results. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate so shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than quoted.
