Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. Investments in smaller companies typically exhibit higher volatility. International investing may involve risk of capital loss from unfavorable fluctuations in currency values, from differences in generally accepted accounting principles, or from economic or political instability in other nations. Emerging markets involve heightened risks related to the same factors as well as increased volatility and lower trading volume. Frontier markets generally have less developed capital markets than traditional emerging market countries, and, consequently, the risks of investing in foreign securities are magnified in such countries. These countries are subject to potentially significant political, social and economic instability, which could materially and adversely affect the companies in which the Fund may invest.

EMFM invests in securities and markets that are susceptible to fluctuations in certain commodity markets. Commodities represent a significant portion of the Latin American and Middle Eastern economies. Any negative changes in commodity markets could have a great impact on these economies. Unlike most exchange-traded funds, EMFM intends to effect all creations and redemptions partially for cash, rather than in-kind securities. As a result, an investment in EMFM may be less tax-efficient than an investment in a more conventional ETF.

Shares of ETFs are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns. Beginning July 14, 2020, market price returns are based on the official closing price of an ETF share or, if the official closing price isn’t available, the midpoint between the national best bid and national best offer (“NBBO”) as of the time the ETF calculates current NAV per share. Prior to July 14, 2020, market price returns were based on the midpoint between the Bid and Ask price. Market price returns. NAVs are calculated using prices as of (4:00 PM Eastern Time). The returns shown do not represent the returns you would receive if you traded shares at other times. Indices are unmanaged and do not include the effect of fees, expenses or sales charges. One cannot invest directly in an index.

Carefully consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risks, and charges and expenses before investing. This and other information can be found in the Fund’s summary or full prospectuses. Please read the prospectus carefully before investing.
