Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. PropTech companies are primarily exposed to the risks specific to the technology and real estate markets. Narrowly focused investments will be more susceptible to factors affecting that sector and subject to more volatility. Technology companies may be subject to rapid changes in technology, intense competition, rapid obsolescence of products and services, loss of intellectual property protections, evolving industry standards and frequent new product productions, and changes in business cycles and government regulations. International investments may involve risk of capital loss from unfavorable fluctuation in currency values, from differences in generally accepted accounting principles or from social, economic, or political instability in other nations. PTEC is non-diversified.
Shares of ETFs are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns.
Carefully consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risks, and charges and expenses before investing. This and other information can be found in the Fund’s summary or full prospectuses, which may be found at globalxetfs.com. Please read the prospectus carefully before investing.
