Fund Description

The investment seeks to track the investment results of an index composed of developed and emerging market equities that, in the aggregate, have lower volatility characteristics relative to the broader developed and emerging equity markets. The fund seeks to track the investment results of the MSCI ACWI Minimum Volatility (USD) Index (the "underlying index"). BFA uses a "passive" or indexing approach to try to achieve the fund's investment objective. It generally invests at least 90% of its assets in securities of the underlying index or in depositary receipts representing securities in the underlying index. The fund is non-diversified.
