Fund Performance

 

ETF Strategy

The investment seeks long-term capital appreciation.The fund invests primarily in exchange-traded equity securities of U.S. companies that have been evaluated based on certain environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria. It typically invests in exchange-traded securities of small- and mid-capitalization companies which are companies with capitalizations within the range of the Russell 2500™ Index, as measured at the time of purchase; however, the fund may invest in exchange-traded securities of companies outside the stated range.

Additional Information

Premium/Discount Chart: ETFs trade intra-day on an exchange like stocks during normal market hours. While the market price of an ETF generally tracks close to the net value (NAV) of the portfolio's underlying holdings, it can deviate and trade at either a premium or a discount to NAV. ETFs will trade at a premium when demand exceeds supply and conversely trade at a discount when supply exceeds demand. The Premium or Discount is the percentage difference between an ETF's current market price and the NAV.

Holdings: ETFs offer investors an interest in a portfolio of securities and other underlying assets and are therefore quite similar to mutual funds. One unique ETF feature is transparency, allowing investors to see the underlying portfolio securities on a daily basis.

Risks of Active Semi-Transparent (also known as non-transparent) ETFs

Active semi-transparent ETFs operate differently from other exchange-traded funds (ETFs). Unlike other ETFs, an active semi-transparent ETF does not publicly disclose its entire portfolio composition each business day, which may affect the price at which shares of the ETF trade in the secondary market. There is a risk that the market price of an active semi-transparent ETF may vary significantly from the ETF’s net asset value and that its shares may trade at a wider bid/ask spread and, therefore, cost investors more to trade than shares of other ETFs. These risks are heightened during periods of market disruption or volatility. To find out more about active semi-transparent ETFs, please read Active Semi-transparent ETFs: What you need to know.

Distribution Yield TTM  
Distribution Yield is the Trailing 12-Month End Yield - Morningstar computes this figure by summing the trailing 12-month's income distributions and dividing the sum by the last month's ending Net Asst Value (NAV), plus capital gains distributed over the same time period. Income refers only to interest payments from fixed-income securities and dividend payments from common stocks.

Leveraged Exchange Traded Products

Leveraged ETPs (exchange-traded products) typically use derivatives to attempt to multiply the returns of the underlying index each day. These securities trade much differently than other ETPs. They have the propensity to be more volatile and are inherently riskier than their non-leveraged counterparts. It is important to remember that these securities are generally designed for daily use only, and are generally not intended to be held overnight, because their returns over longer periods generally do not match the ETP’s multiple of the underlying index over those periods. These funds are not appropriate for most investors.


Leveraged Closed-end Funds

Funds that borrow money to purchase more assets in this way will generally move up more than the market when the market rises and move down farther than the market when the market falls. Bond funds that use leverage have the potential to increase the amount of income that they pay out, but at the cost of larger drops in value during a falling market. Leverage inherently increases the level of risk in a portfolio.

NoPortfolio Turnover--
 
For ETFs, this refers to the number of times the fund is long or short the index to explain its leverage factor. For example,
-300 means that the ETF is short 3 times the index.

Socially Responsible Investing

Socially Responsible Investing is the umbrella term Schwab uses to encompass some of the common investment approaches that incorporate environmental and social considerations:

  • Values-based investing, which is an investment approach that excludes certain sectors or types of companies, such as tobacco, firearms, or fossil fuels companies.
  • ESG investing, which considers environmental, social, and governance factors when determining the future risk and return of investments.
  • Impact investing, which explicitly deploys investment dollars in an effort to directly achieve desired outcomes. Examples include financing loans to low-income homebuyers, funding projects to reduce air pollution at factories, and buying stock in a company in an effort to put positive shareholder initiatives on proxy ballots.

Active Semi-transparent ETFs

Active semi-transparent ETFs reveal full portfolio holdings only on a monthly or quarterly basis, not daily like traditional ETFs. There are different degrees of transparency as some firms will not disclose any daily holdings and others will reveal holdings daily, but shield certain positions and weights. Certain active semi-transparent ETFs may not be available for purchase or custody at Schwab.

The typical mid-cap blend portfolio invests in U.S. stocks of various sizes and styles, giving it a middle-of the-road profile. Most shy away from high-priced growth stocks but are not so price-conscious that they land in value territory. Stocks in the middle 20% of the capitalization of the U.S. equity market are defined as mid-cap. The blend style is assigned to portfolios where neither growth nor value characteristics predominate.
Mid-Cap Blend 

Buffer ETFs provide investors with the opportunity to participate in the upside of an asset’s risk while giving investors some level of downside protection during a stated outcome period (typically one year). An upside return cap represents the maximum percentage of return an investor can achieve, and an investor will not participate in any excess returns above the cap. Buffer ETFs may limit an investor’s losses up to an ETF’s stated buffer limit; however, in the event of a decline in the underlying investments in excess of the buffer limit, the investor can experience those losses. Return cap and downside buffer levels for a Buffer ETF are established at the beginning of each outcome period and will likely differ from the prior outcome period. Buffer ETFs invest primarily in FLexible EXchange (“FLEX”) options to employ a structured or defined outcome strategy.

Schwab's Financial and Other Relationships with certain ETFs

As your agreement for the receipt and use of market data provides, the securities markets (1) reserve all rights to the market data that they make available; (2) do not guarantee that data; and (3) shall not be liable for any loss due either to their negligence or to any cause beyond their reasonable control.

Performance data quoted represents past performance and does not indicate future results. Investment returns 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. Shares are bought and sold at market price, which may be higher or lower than the net asset value (NAV). Current performance may be lower or higher. See the Performance tab for updated monthly returns.

Investors should consider carefully information contained in the prospectus or, if available, the summary prospectus, including investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. You can request a prospectus by calling 800-435-4000. Please read the prospectus carefully before investing.

ETFs at Charles Schwab & Co., Inc. ("Schwab") which are U.S. exchange-listed can be traded without a commission on buy and sell transactions made online in a Schwab account. Unlisted ETFs are subject to a commission. Please see pricing guide for additional information. Schwab does not receive payment to promote any particular ETF to its customers. Schwab's affiliate Charles Schwab Investment Management, Inc. ("CSIM") serves as investment advisor to the Schwab ETFs, which compensate CSIM out of the applicable operating expense ratios. The amount of the fees is disclosed in the prospectus of each ETF.

Because environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategies exclude some securities, ESG-focused products may not be able to take advantage of the same opportunities or market trends as products that do not use such strategies. Additionally, the criteria used to select companies for investment may result in investing in securities, industries or sectors that underperform the market as a whole.

Schwab receives remuneration from third party active semi-transparent (also known as non-transparent) ETFs or their sponsors for platform support and technology, shareholder communications, reporting, and similar administrative services for third party active semi-transparent ETFs available at Schwab. This fee will vary, but typically is an asset-based fee of 0.10% per annum of the assets held at Schwab. Neither Schwab’s affiliate CSIM nor Schwab active semi-transparent ETFs pay a separate fee to Schwab for these services, although CSIM reimburses Schwab for its costs in providing similar services for the Schwab ETFs.
