Investment Objective

The investment seeks to track the investment results of the MSCI Brazil 25/50 Index.

The index- consists of stocks traded primarily on B3 (the largest Brazilian exchange)- is a free float-adjusted market capitalization-weighted index with a capping methodology applied to issuer weights so that no single issuer of a component exceeds 25% of the underlying index weight- and all issuers with weight above 5% do not cumulatively exceed 50% of the underlying index weight. The fund is non-diversified.
