Data quoted represents past performance. Past performance is not an indication of future results and investment returns and share prices will fluctuate on a daily basis. Your investment may be worth more or less than your original cost at redemption. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted. Performance is based on market returns. For quarterly and current performance metrics, please click on the fund name. ETF shares cannot be redeemed directly from the ETF. Consequently, brokerage commissions will reduce the performance.
