The fund generally will invest at least 90% of its total assets in common stocks that comprise the underlying index. Volatility is a statistical measurement of the magnitude of up and down asset price fluctuations (increases or decreases in a stock's price) over time. It generally invests in all of the securities comprising the underlying index in proportion to their weightings in the underlying index. The fund is non-diversified.
