Important Characteristics Information
Portfolio characteristic data are based on unaudited net assets.
Portfolio characteristics are based on equivalent exposure, which measures how a portfolio's value would change due to price changes in an asset held either directly or, in the case of a derivative contract, indirectly. The market value of the holding may differ.
*Short positions, unlike long positions, lose value if the underlying asset gains value.
