Investing in funds that invest in specific industries or geographic regions may be more volatile than investing in broadly diversified funds. The use of leverage by a fund increases the risk to the fund. The more a fund invests in leveraged instruments the more the leverage will magnify gains or losses on those investments.
Leveraged Funds seek daily investment goals and are designed to be utilized only by sophisticated investors, such as traders and active investors employing dynamic strategies. Such investors are expected to monitor and manage their portfolios frequently. Investors should (a) understand the consequences of seeking daily investment results, (b) intend to actively monitor and manage their investment, and (c) understand the risk of shorting. Short positions are designed to profit from a decline in the price of particular securities, baskets of securities or indices. The Fund will lose value if and when the instrument’s price rises – a result that is the opposite from traditional funds.
