1The "Net Asset Value" (NAV) of all ETFs is determined at the close of each business day, and represents the value of one share of the fund; it is calculated by taking the total assets of the fund, subtracting total liabilities, and dividing by the total number of shares outstanding. The NAV is not necessarily the same as the ETF 's intraday trading value. Investors should not expect to buy or sell ETF shares at NAV.
