SGI|Security Global Investors is the investment advisory arm of Security Benefit Corporation, a diversified financial holding company. SGI|Security Global Investors consists of Security Global Investors, LLC, Security Investors, LLC and Rydex Investments.

ETFs may not be suitable for all investors. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate so that when shares are redeemed, they may be worth more or less than original cost.

Inverse and leveraged funds may not be suitable for all investors. -- The more a fund invests in leveraged instruments, the more the leverage will magnify any gains or losses on those investments. Inverse funds involve certain risks, which include increased volatility due to the funds' possible use of short sales of securities and derivatives, such as options and futures. -- The funds' use of derivatives, such as futures, options and swap agreements, may expose the funds' shareholders to additional risks that they would not be subject to if they invested directly in the securities underlying those derivatives. -- Short-selling involves increased risks and costs. -- You risk paying more for a security than you received from its sale. -- Leveraged and inverse funds seek to provide investment results that match the performance of a specific benchmark, before fees and expenses, on a daily basis. -- Because the funds seek to track the performance of their benchmark on a daily basis, mathematical compounding, especially with respect to those funds that use leverage as part of their investment strategy, may prevent a fund from correlating with the monthly, quarterly, annual or other period performance of its benchmark. -- Due to the compounding of daily returns, leveraged and inverse funds' returns over periods other than one day will likely differ in amount and possibly direction from the benchmark return for the same period. Investors should monitor their leveraged and inverse funds' holdings to ensure that they are consistent with their strategies, as frequently as daily. -- For those funds that consistently apply leverage, the value of the funds' shares will tend to increase or decrease more than the value of any increase or decrease in its benchmark index. For more on correlation, leverage and other risks, please read the prospectus.
