One-third: That’s about how much international developed markets (IDM) represent in the equity universe. IDM also account for about 20% of global GDP. Yet the typical US investor’s portfolio has only 15% international exposure.1

Lowest 13% out of 809 funds in the Foreign Large Blend category. Source: Morningstar, 7/21.

ETF shares are bought and sold at market price, not net asset value (NAV). Total returns are calculated using the daily 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time NAV. Market price returns reflect the midpoint of the bid/ask spread as of the close of trading on the exchange where Fund shares are listed. Market price returns do not represent the returns an investor would receive if they traded shares at other times. Brokerage commissions apply and will reduce returns.

Important Risks: • Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. Security prices fluctuate in value depending on general market and economic conditions and the prospects of individual companies. • The Fund is not actively managed but rather attempts to track the performance of an index. The Fund’s returns may diverge from that of the index. • Foreign investments may be more volatile and less liquid than U.S. investments and are subject to the risk of currency fluctuations and adverse regulatory, political and economic developments. These risks may be greater in particular geographic regions or countries. • Investments focused in a country, region, sector, industry or group of industries may increase volatility and risk. • Mid-cap securities can have greater risks and volatility than large-cap securities.
