Fund Description

The Fund normally invests at least 80% of its total assets in securities that comprise the Fund’s benchmark index. The Israel Index is comprised of equity securities, which may include depositary receipts, of publicly traded companies that are generally considered by MV Index Solutions GmbH (“MVIS” or the “Index provider”) to be Israeli companies. The Index provider considers a range of factors such as domicile, country of company formation/founding, primary location of management, operations and/or research and development facilities, tax status, location of revenues and employees, among others, when determining whether a company will be included in the Israel Index. The Israel Index generally only includes the largest and most liquid companies as well
as medium-capitalization and small-capitalization companies that display sufficient liquidity for global investors, as determined by the Index provider. The Fund may also utilize depositary receipts to seek performance that corresponds to the Fund’s benchmark index. Investments in depositary receipts of Israeli companies whose securities are represented in the Israel Index will count towards satisfaction of the Fund’s 80% investment policy. As of December 31, 2023, the Israel Index included 86 securities of companies with a market capitalization range of between approximately $0.35 billion and $17.88 billion and a weighted average market capitalization of $7.8 billion. These amounts are subject to change. The Fund’s 80% investment policy is non-fundamental and may be changed without shareholder approval upon 60 days’ prior written notice to shareholders.
The Fund, using a “passive” or indexing investment approach, attempts to approximate the investment performance of the Israel Index by investing in a portfolio of securities that generally replicates the Israel Index. Unlike many investment companies that try to “beat” the performance of a benchmark index, the Fund does not try to “beat” the Israel Index and does not seek temporary defensive positions that are inconsistent with its investment objective of seeking to replicate the Israel Index.
The Fund is classified as a non-diversified fund under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Company Act of 1940”), and, therefore, may invest a greater percentage of its assets in a particular issuer. The Fund may concentrate its investments in a particular industry or group of industries to the extent that the Israel Index concentrates in an industry or group of industries. As of December 31, 2023, each of the information technology and financials sectors represented a significant portion of the Fund.
