RISK SUMMARIES

International Unconstrained Equity Fund and Diversified Return International Equity ETF:

  • International investing involves a greater degree of risk and increased volatility due to political and economic instability of some overseas markets. Changes in currency exchange rates and differences in accounting and taxation policies outside the U.S. can affect returns.
  • The prices of equity securities are sensitive to a wide range of factors, from economic to company-specific news, and can fluctuate rapidly and unpredictably, causing an investment to decrease in value.
  • Narrowly focused investments typically exhibit higher volatility
  • Emerging markets involve heightened risks related to the same factors as well as increased volatility and decreased trading volume.
  • The fund uses derivatives, which may be riskier than other types of investments and may increase the volatility of a fund.
  • There is no guarantee the funds will meet their investment objective.
  • Diversification may not protect against market loss.

Diversified Return International Equity ETF:

  • ETFs are bought and sold at market price (not NAV). Market price returns are based upon the midpoint of the bid/ask spread at 4:00 pm (when NAV is normally determined for most ETFs), and do not represent the returns an investor would receive if shares were traded at other times.
  • A fund may not track the return of its underlying index for a number of reasons, such operating expenses incurred by a fund that are not applicable to an index, and the time difference between calculating the value of an index and the net asset value of a fund.
ANNUAL OPERATING EXPENSES

The Fund's adviser and/or its affiliates have contractually agreed to waive fees and/or reimburse expenses to the extent Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses (excluding acquired fund fees and expenses, dividend and interest expenses related to short sales, interest, taxes, expenses related to litigation and potential litigation and extraordinary expenses) exceed 0.75% of the average daily net assets for International Unconstrained Equity Fund I shares and 0.43% for JPMorgan Diversified Return International Equity ETF. Waivers are in effect through 10/31/19 for International Unconstrained Equity Fund and 2/28/2022 for JPIN, at which time the adviser and/or its affiliates will determine whether to renew or revise it.

INDEXES

ENTITIES

The Morningstar RatingTM for funds, or “star rating,” is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product’s monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five- and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods. Rankings do not take sales loads into account.
