Franklin LibertyQ Emerging Markets UCITS ETF

FUND DESCRIPTION

The Fund invests in large and mid-capitalisation stocks in emerging market countries globally and seeks to track the performance of the LibertyQ Emerging Markets Index (the “Underlying Index”) as closely as possible. The Fund aims to replicate the Underlying Index by holding all of its securities in a similar proportion to their weighting in the Underlying Index. The holdings of the Underlying Index are selected from the MSCI Emerging Markets Index (the “Investment Universe”), using a transparent multi-factor selection process that applies four investment style factors (quality, value, momentum and low volatility).

What are the Key Risks?

The value of shares in the Fund and income received from it can go down as well as up and investors may not get back the full amount invested. Performance may also be affected by currency fluctuations. Currency fluctuations may affect the value of overseas investments. There is no guarantee that the Fund will meet its objective. For full details of all the risks applicable to this Fund, please refer to the “Risk Considerations” section of the current prospectus of Franklin LibertyShares ICAV.

  • The Fund intends to track the performance of the Underlying Index which is comprised of 200 stocks selected from the MSCI Emerging Markets Index. Such assets have historically been subject to price movements due to such factors as general stock market volatility, changes in the financial outlook or fluctuations in currency markets. As a result, the performance of the Fund can fluctuate considerably over time.
  • Other significant risks include:
    Counterparty risk: the risk of failure of financial institutions or agents (when serving as a counterparty to financial contracts) to perform their obligations, whether due to insolvency, bankruptcy or other causes.
    Foreign Currency risk: the risk of loss arising from exchange-rate fluctuations or due to exchange control regulations.
    Derivative Instruments risk: the risk of loss in an instrument where a small change in the value of the underlying investment may have a larger impact on the value of such instrument. Derivatives may involve additional liquidity, credit and counterparty risks.
    Emerging markets risk: the risk related to investing in countries that have less developed political, economic, legal and regulatory systems, and that may be impacted by political/economic instability, lack of liquidity or transparency, or safekeeping issues.
    Index Related risk: the risk that quantitative techniques used in creating the customised Index the Fund seeks to track do not generate the intended result, or that the portfolio of the Fund deviates from its Index composition or performance.
    Secondary Market Trading risk: the risk that the shares purchased on the secondary market cannot usually be sold directly back to the Fund and that investors may therefore pay more than NAV per Share when buying shares or may receive less than the current NAV per Share when selling shares.
