Investors will incur usual and customary brokerage commissions when buying or selling shares of the exchange-traded funds (“ETFs”) in the secondary market, and that, if reflected, the brokerage commissions would reduce the performance returns. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance shown. Shares are bought and sold at market price not net asset value (“NAV”) and are not individually redeemable from the fund.

INDEX

The iBoxx® 5-Year Target Duration TIPS Index measures the performance of Treasury Inflation Protected Securities (TIPS) as determined by Markit iBoxx's proprietary index methodology. The iBoxx® index methodology targets a modified adjusted duration of 5.0 years and defines the eligible universe of TIPS as having no less than one year and no more than ten years until maturity as of the Index determination date. A proprietary regression calculation is then used to determine the modified adjusted duration of the TIPS and weight the TIPS in the Index at a modified adjusted duration level within a range of 5.0 years, plus or minus 5% within Index constraints. One cannot invest directly in an index.

Index Methodology

Definitions

1SEC Subsidized Yield
The 30-Day SEC Subsidized Yield is computed under an SEC standardized formula based on net income earned over the past 30 days. It is a "subsidized" yield, which means it includes contractual expense reimbursements and it would be lower without those reimbursements. It may also include an inflation adjustment that can cause the yield to vary substantially from one month to the next.
2SEC Unsubsidized Yield
The 30-Day SEC Unsubsidized Yield calculation is also computed under the same SEC standardized formula based on net income earned over the past 30 days, but excludes contractual expense reimbursements, resulting in a lower yield. It may also include an inflation adjustment that can cause the yield to vary substantially from one month to the next.
3Distribution Yield
This yield is calculated by taking the most recent distribution annualized and dividing by the fund NAV from the as of date. For Funds that distribute monthly, an NA will be displayed if the fund has not distributed within the last 35 days.
412-Month Dividend Yield
This yield is calculated by assuming any income distributions over the past twelve months and dividing by the sum of the most recent NAV.
