The PowerShares FTSE RAFI US 1000 UCITS ETF aims to replicate the FTSE RAFI US 1000 Index. The Index is designed to track the performance of the largest U.S. equities, selected based on the following four fundamental measures of firm size: book value, cash flow, sales and dividends. The 1000 equities with the highest fundamental strength are weighted by their fundamental scores. The fundamentally weighted portfolio is rebalanced and reconstituted annually.
With effect from 17 February 2014, the ETF will change the relevant benchmark from a Gross Index to a Net Index (i.e. net of income and withholding tax). The index strategy and constituents of each benchmark index will remain the same

Where Invesco PowerShares has expressed views and opinions, these may change without notice. The price of ETFs and any income will fluctuate, this may partly be the result of exchange rate fluctuations, and investors may not get back the full amount invested. Past performance is not an indication of future performance, provides no guarantee for the future and is not constant over time. Whilst an ETF will seek to track an Index, Invesco PowerShares does not guarantee that this will occur. When making an investment in an ETF you are buying shares in a company that is listed on a stock exchange. The price of the shares will be determined by supply and demand. It is expected that shares in the ETFs will trade closely to their NAV, and because of the exchange-traded fund structure, it is expected that a significant discount or premium of price to asset value will not be sustainable over the long term. However, supply and demand in the shares on the relevant exchange together with any disruptions to creations and redemptions of units in the underlying fund may result in share prices that differ significantly from the NAVs and there can be no certainty that there will be liquidity in the shares on any exchange. Only Authorised Participants, as defined in the Full Prospectus of the ETF, can request the Manager to create and redeem units in the underlying fund. Any investment in an ETF should be made on the basis of the relevant Full Prospectus, KIIDs and Supplement, including consideration of the investment objective, risks, charges and expenses. Further information on the ETFs, including the Full Prospectus, KIIDs and Supplements is available at www.invescopowershares.net, from your adviser or broker.

You should take appropriate advice as to any securities, taxation or other legislation affecting you prior to investment.
