The investment objective of the fund is to replicate as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the price and yield of the NYSE Arca Biotechnology Index.

Such processes include, but are not limited to, recombinant DNA technology, molecular biology, genetic engineering, monoclonal antibody-based technology, lipid/liposome technology, and genomics. The index is rebalanced quarterly based on closing prices on the third Friday in January, April, July & October to ensure that each component stock continues to represent approximately equal weight in the index.
