The performance of an index is not an exact representation of any particular investment as you cannot invest directly in an index. The performance of the index does not reflect the deduction of any expenses which would have reduced total returns. Performance information of the Vanguard ETF reflects waivers of certain expenses and/or fees. If the Vanguard ETF had incurred all expenses, investment returns would have been reduced. The indicated rates of return are the historical annual compounded total returns including changes in unit value and reinvestment of all dividends or distributions and do not take into account sales, redemption, distribution or optional charges or income taxes payable by any unitholder that would have reduced returns. The performance of the index and Vanguard ETF is for illustrative purposes only.  

The Vanguard ETFs are not sponsored, endorsed, sold or promoted by Barclays Capital Inc. or its affiliates (“Barclays”). Barclays does not make any representation regarding the advisability of investing in the Vanguard ETFs or the advisability of investing in securities generally. Barclays’ only relationship with Vanguard is the licensing of the Index which is determined, composed and calculated by Barclays without regard to Vanguard or the Vanguard ETFs. Barclays has no obligation to take the needs of Vanguard or the owners of the Vanguard ETFs into consideration in determining, composing or calculating the Index. Barclays has no obligation or liability in connection with administration, marketing or trading of the Vanguard ETFs.

Notes on Risk:  

All investments, including those that seek to track indexes, are subject to risk, including the possible loss of principal. Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss in a declining market. While ETFs are designed to be as diversified as the original indexes they seek to track and can provide greater diversification than an individual investor may achieve independently, any given ETF may not be a diversified investment.
