Options carry a high level of risk and are not suitable for all investors. Certain requirements must be met to trade options through Schwab. Please read the options disclosure document titled "Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options." Supporting documentation for any claims or statistical information is available upon request.
Investors in ETFs should consider carefully information concerned in the 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. Investors in Closed-End Funds please note that since these securities are not continuously offered, there may be no prospectus available.
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).
International investments are subject to additional risks such as currency fluctuation, geopolitical risk and the potential for illiquid markets.
