Fund Description

The fund generally will invest at least 90% of its assets in the component securities of the index and in investments that have economic characteristics that are substantially identical to the component securities of the index. The index is a free float-adjusted market capitalization-weighted index with a capping methodology applied to issuer weights so that no single issuer exceeds 25% of the index weight, and all issuers with a weight above 5% do not cumulatively exceed 50% of the index weight. The fund is non-diversified.
