|UBS Exchange Traded Funds|
- Investment in a broad-based market with just one transaction
- The flexibility of security investments combined with a fund investment
- Transparency thanks to the reference index
Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) have seen remarkable growth since their launch in Europe in 2000 because they are transparent, cost-effective and easy to trade. In addition, they combine the advantages of both investment funds and security investments.
Exchange Traded Funds are units of investment funds that replicate key market indices. This means that with a single transaction investors can participate in an entire market. They benefit from the flexibility of an investment traded on the stock exchange as well as the full protection afforded to investment fund clients.
Because the value of UBS Exchange Traded Funds mirrors that of the securities in the associated index, price and return are always transparent. All the more so since an indicative net asset value is calculated in real time every 15 seconds and can be called up on the Internet (www.ubs.com/etf). As a result, investors can react quickly and flexibly to market changes by buying or selling units.
UBS Exchange Traded Funds are listed on the SIX in Switzerland, the Deutsche Börse (Xetra) in Germany, the London Stock Exchange (LSE) in United Kingdom, and the Borsa Italiana in Italy. They can be traded during normal trading hours in the same way as any stock. UBS Exchange Traded Funds are based on key indices, such as the EURO STOXX 50 and the FTSE 100. These indices consist of highly capitalised and liquid securities selected in accordance with strict rules to guarantee that they are representative of the market.
With the broad ETF range on offer, investors can gain diversified and representative exposure to indices within their chosen markets.
Additional fees (e.g. entry or exit fees) may be charged by the Distributor. Please refer to your financial adviser for more details. For a definition of financial terms refer to the glossary available at www.ubs.com/glossary
