Risk Disclosures: Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. There can be no assurance that a Fund will achieve its stated objectives.
The Funds are subject to political, social or economic instability within China which may cause decline in value. Fluctuations in currency of foreign countries may have an adverse effect to domestic currency values. Emerging markets involve heightened risk related to the same factors as well as increase volatility and lower trading volume. The funds may invest in derivatives, which are often more volatile than other investments and may magnify the Funds' gains or losses.
Narrowly focused investments typically exhibit higher volatility. The Funds' assets are expected to be concentrated in an industry or group of industries to the extent that the Underlying Index concentrates in a particular industry or group of industries. The securities of companies in an industry or group of industries could react similarly to market developments. Thus, the Funds are subject to loss due to adverse occurrences that affect one industry or group of industries or sector. KWEB, KURE, KFYP, KGRN, KCNY, KCCB, OBOR, KARS, KEMQ, KMED, KESG, KFVG, KBUY, and KSTR are non-diversified.
The ability of KBA, KALL, OBOR, KEMQ, KARS, KURE, KMED, KBUY, KSTR, and KESG to achieve their respective investment objectives is dependent, in part, on the continuous availability of A Shares and the ability to obtain, if necessary, additional A Shares quota. If a Fund is unable to obtain sufficient exposure to limited availability of A Share quota, the Fund could seek exposure to the component securities of the Underlying Index by investment in other types of securities.
KCNY and KCCB are subject to interest rate risk, which is the chance that bonds will decline in value as interest rates rise. The components of the securities held by these Funds will be rated by Chinese credit rating agencies, which may use different criteria and methodology than U.S. entities or international credit rating agencies. The Funds may invest in high yield and unrated securities, whose prices are generally more sensitive to adverse economic changes and consequently more volatile.
KCCB invests in perpetual bonds, which offer fixed return with no maturity date. Perpetual bonds can be more volatile than other types of bonds that have a maturity date and may be more sensitive to changes to interest rates. The Fund depends on the CIBM Program to invest directly in RMB Bonds. There is no guarantee the Fund will be able to continue to participate in the program.
KGRN and KESG may underperform other similar funds that do not consider conscious company/ESG guidelines when making investment decisions.
KSTR may invest in Initial Public Offerings (IPOs). Securities issued in IPOs have no trading history, and information about the companies may be available for very limited periods. In addition, the prices of securities sold in IPOs may be highly volatile. In addition, as the Fund increases in size, the impact of IPOs on the Fund's performance will generally decrease.
Indices are unmanaged and do not include the effect of fees.
One cannot invest directly in an index. Fund shares are bought and sold on an exchange at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. However, shares may be redeemed at NAV directly by certain authorized broker-dealers (Authorized Participants) in very large creation/redemption units. The returns shown do not represent the returns you would receive if you traded shares at other times. Shares may trade at a premium or discount to their NAV in the secondary market. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns. Beginning 12/23/2020, market price returns are based on the official closing price of an ETF share or, if the official closing price isn't available, the midpoint between the national best bid and national best offer ("NBBO") as of the time the ETF calculates the current NAV per share. Prior to that date, market price returns were based on the midpoint between the Bid and Ask price. NAVs are calculated using prices as of 4:00 PM Eastern Time.
