IMPORTANT: Investment involves risk, including the loss of principal. Investors are advised to consider their own investment objectives and circumstances in determining the suitability of an investment in the iShares MSCI Asia APEX Small Cap Index ETF (the “Index Fund”). An investment in this Index Fund may not be suitable for everyone.

  • Generally, investments in emerging markets are subject to a greater risk of loss than investments in a developed market due to greater political, economic, foreign exchange, liquidity and regulatory risks, etc.
  • The Index Fund invests in small capitalization companies. The stock prices of small capitalization companies are typically more volatile and their trading may be less active than those of larger capitalization companies. Therefore, the Index Fund investing in small capitalization companies may increase or decrease by a greater percentage than those Index Fund that invests in stocks issued by large capitalization companies.
