Diversify Efficiently with ETFs
ETFs (Exchange-Traded Funds) are generally investment vehicles that track established market indices. ETFs enable investors to buy or sell shares of a basket of securities. Like equity shares, ETFs are listed on exchanges with a unique symbol and can be traded at any time during market hours.
Given of the wide range of ETFs available, investors can quickly participate in broad market trends and various market sectors. This gives you the potential to grow your investment by distributing it across industries, bonds, or even international markets.

Investment returns on ETFs will fluctuate and are subject to market volatility, so that an investor's shares, when redeemed or sold, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Unlike mutual funds, shares of ETFs are not individually redeemable directly with the ETF.
Investors should consider carefully information contained in the prospectus, including investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. You can request a prospectus by calling Schwab at 0800 917-1039. Please read the prospectus carefully before investing.
