UBS Exchange Traded Funds invest in equities and may therefore be subject to high fluctuations in value. For this reason, an investment horizon of at least five years and corresponding risk tolerance and capacity are required. All investments are subject to market fluctuations. Every fund has specific risks, which can significantly increase under unusual market conditions. The fund’s assets are passively managed. As a result, the net asset value of the fund’s assets is directly dependent on the performance of the underlying equities. Losses that could be avoided via active management will not be offset.
