The Northern Trust Real Assets Allocation Index is designed to reflect the performance of a universe of inflation sensitive securities operating in the following sectors: global infrastructure, global real estate and global natural resources. The index is intended to reflect an exposure to "real" assets, and is constructed using a proprietary optimization in an effort to reduce volatility of returns, while maintaining diversification amongst the eligible securities.


The FlexShares Real Assets Allocation Index Fund (ASET) is subject to commodity exposure risk, the risk of investing in economies that are susceptible to fluctuations in certain commodity markets. The Fund is subject to counterparty risk, which is the risk that counterparty to a financial instrument may default on its payment obligation to an Underlying Fund. Investments in foreign and emerging market securities involve certain risks such as currency volatility, political and social instability and reduced market liquidity. The Fund's investments are concentrated in the securities of issuers in a particular market, industry, sector or asset class. The Fund may be subject to increased price volatility and may be more susceptible to adverse economic, market, political or regulatory occurrences affecting that market, industry, sector or asset class. The Fund may also invest in derivative instruments. Changes in the value of the derivative may not correlate with the underlying asset, rate or index and the Fund could lose more than the principal amount invested.
