IMPORTANT INFORMATION: All investments involve risk, including loss of principal. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Please see each product’s webpage for specific details regarding investment objective, risks, performance and other important information. Review this information carefully before you make any investment decision. Investors cannot invest directly in an index, and unmanaged index returns do not reflect any fees, expenses or sales charges.
Carefully consider a fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses before investing. Please view the prospectus or summary prospectus for this and other information. Read it carefully.
Authorized participants ("APs") may acquire shares in the primary market directly from the ETFs and may tender their shares for redemption directly to the ETFs, at net asset value per share only in Creation Units or Creation Unit Aggregations. Once created, shares of the funds generally trade in the secondary market in amounts less than a Creation Unit.
Retail investors buy and sell shares of ETFs at market price (not NAV) in the secondary market throughout the trading day. These shares are not individually available for purchase or redemption directly from the ETF. Market price returns are based upon the mid-point of the National Best Bid and Offer (NBBO) when the ETF’s NAV is determined, which is typically 4 p.m. Eastern time (US).
Legg Mason Investor Services, LLC (LMIS) serves as the distributor of Creation Units for the ETFs on an agency basis. LMIS does not maintain a secondary market in the funds' shares.
If you are neither a resident nor a citizen of the United States or if you are a non-U.S. entity, the ETF's ordinary income dividends (which include distributions of net short-term capital gains) will generally be subject to a 30% U.S. federal withholding tax, unless a lower treaty rate applies. For further information, please see each fund’s prospectus.
Redemption payments will be effected within the specified number of calendar days following the date on which a request for redemption in proper form is made. Please see each fund’s statement of additional information (SAI) for more information.

Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) — A type of investment company which is bought and sold on a securities exchange. ETFs generally represent a portfolio of securities, derivative instruments, currencies or commodities. The risks of owning an ETF generally reflect the risks of owning the underlying securities or commodities the ETF is designed to track. ETFs also have management fees and operating expenses that increase their costs.
