The S&P 900® combines the large-cap S&P 500® and the S&P MidCap 400®. It addresses the needs of investors who want to benchmark or invest in the large and mid-cap segments of the U.S. market. The index is unmanaged, includes the reinvestment of dividends and cannot be purchased directly by investors. Index performance is shown for illustrative purposes only and does not predict or depict performance of the Fund. Past performance does not guarantee future results.
The FTSE Emerging Market Index is a market capitalization index, adjusted based on the free-float of potential index constituents, and designed to measure the performance of large-, medium- and small-capitalization companies located in emerging market countries throughout the world.
An investment in ETFs is subject to investment risk, including the possible loss of principal amount invested. Foreign investments may be volatile and involve additional expenses and special risks, including currency fluctuations, foreign taxes, regulatory and geopolitical risks.
ETF returns may not match the returns of their respective index, known as non-correlation risk, due to operating expenses incurred by the ETF. The alternate weighting approach employed by ETFs, while designed to enhance potential returns, may not produce the desired results. Because ETFs are rebalanced quarterly, portfolio turnover may exceed 100%. The greater the portfolio turnover, the greater the transaction costs, which could have an adverse effect on ETF performance.
Shares of Oppenheimer funds are not deposits or obligations of any bank, are not guaranteed by any bank, are not insured by the FDIC or any other agency, and involve investment risks, including the possible loss of the principal amount invested.
Before investing in any of the Oppenheimer funds, investors should carefully consider a fund's investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses.
