Before considering an investment in the Fund, you should understand that you could lose money.

As with all investments, there are certain risks of investing in the Fund. The Fund’s shares will change in value, and you could lose money by investing in the Fund.

The Fund is a new fund. As a new fund, there can be no assurance that it will grow to or maintain an economically viable size, in which case it may experience greater tracking error to its underlying Index than it otherwise would at higher asset levels, or it could ultimately liquidate.

The Fund employs a “passive management” investment approach designed to track the performance of the Underlying Index.

There is no guarantee that the Fund’s investment results will have a high degree of correlation to those of the Underlying Index or that the Fund will achieve its investment objective. The Underlying Index seeks to provide exposure to the equity securities of companies meeting environmental, social and corporate governance investing criteria and the Fund may forgo some market opportunities available to funds that do not use these criteria. The application of environmental, social and corporate governance investing may impact the Fund’s relative investment performance. There is no guarantee that the construction methodology of the Underlying Index will accurately provide exposure to issuers meeting environmental, social and corporate governance criteria. 

Investments directly in foreign (non-U.S.) currencies or in securities that trade in, and receive revenues in, foreign (non-U.S.) currencies are subject to the risk that those currencies will decline in value relative to the U.S. dollar. Investments in the securities of non-U.S. issuers involve risks beyond those associated with investments in U.S. securities, including greater market volatility, the availability of less reliable financial information, higher transactional and custody costs, taxation by foreign governments, decreased market liquidity and political instability. 

IQ Candriam ESG International Equity Index is designed to deliver exposure to equity securities of companies meeting environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) criteria developed by Candriam and weighted using a market-capitalization weighting methodology.

MSCI EAFE® Index consists of international stocks representing the developed world outside of North America.

Price/Earnings Ratio is a valuation of a company's current share price compared to its per-share earnings and is not intended to demonstrate growth or income.

Price/Book Ratio is used to compare a company's stock's value to its book value and is not intended to demonstrate growth or income.

Shares are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Total Returns are calculated using the daily 4:00 pm ET net asset value (NAV). Since May 31, 2016, the price used to calculate the market price returns ("MP") is the mean between the day's last bid and ask prices on the fund's primary exchange. Any market price returns prior to May 31, 2016 were calculated using the day's closing price on the fund's primary exchange. The market price returns do not represent returns an investor would receive if shares were traded at other times.

Fund shares are not individually redeemable and will be issued and redeemed at their NAV only through certain authorized broker-dealers in large, specified blocks of shares called "creation units", and otherwise, can be bought and sold only through exchange trading. Creation units are issued and redeemed principally in-kind.

The Morningstar Rating™ for funds, or "star rating", is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product's monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance (this does not include the effects of sales charges, loads, and redemption fees). The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods.
