ELEMENTS, index mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) all provide investors with exposure to the returns of various underlying market measures. However, ELEMENTS offer different features that may make them a more attractive investment vehicle to certain investors than index mutual funds and ETFs.
ELEMENTS are listed on a U.S. securities exchange and can be bought and sold under a designated ticker symbol during trading hours through a broker or financial advisor. ELEMENTS can be offered for repurchase by the issuer during some or all of the term of ELEMENTS, subject to certain requirements relating to a minimum number of units. A repurchase fee may apply. Please consult with a broker or financial advisor for more information.
