GENERAL RISK FACTORS
Historical performance is not necessarily indicative of future performance of an investment. The value of Units/Shares (as defined below) and the income from them may fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the amount invested.
Applications to create or redeem interests in any exchange traded fund referred to on this Site ("Units/Shares") may only be effected through participating dealers, and are generally only issued or redeemed in large blocks. Investors may request participating dealers to apply on their behalf for the creation and/or redemption of Units/Shares. Once listed, investors can also acquire or dispose of Units/Shares on the exchange on which such Units/Shares are listed like other publicly traded shares. However, listing does not guarantee a liquid market for Units/Shares. Units/Shares are traded on the relevant exchange at market price, which may be different from the net asset value per Unit/Share, and may be delisted.
The prospectus in respect of the offer of the Units in the relevant fund referred to on this Site is available and may be obtained upon request. Investors should read the relevant prospectus before deciding whether to acquire Units in the relevant fund. Units in the relevant fund are not obligations of, deposits in, or guaranteed by, SSGA or any of its affiliates. Investors who are not participating dealers or approved applicants have no right to request SSGA to redeem their Units while the Units are listed (see the relevant prospectus for details).
Please read carefully the risk disclosures in the relevant prospectus or other offering document before making any investment decision.
