An investment in the fund could lose money over short or even long periods. You should expect the fund’s share price and total return to fluctuate within a wide range, like the fluctuations of the overall stock market. Although Total Stock Market ETF is listed for trading on the NYSE Arca, it is possible that an active trading market may not be maintained. Trading of Total Stock Market ETF on the NYSE Arca may be halted if NYSE Arca officials deem such action appropriate, if Total Stock Market ETF is delisted from the NYSE Arca, or if the activation of marketwide “circuit breakers” halts stock trading generally. The fund’s performance could be hurt by:

  • Stock market risk: The chance that stock prices overall will decline. Stock markets tend to move in cycles, with periods of rising stock prices and periods of falling stock prices. The fund’s target index may, at times, become focused in stocks of a particular sector, category, or group of companies.
