PFA PowerShares
FTSE RAFI Asia Pacific ex-Japan UCITS ETF

The PowerShares FTSE RAFI Asia Pacific ex-Japan UCITS ETF aims to replicate the FTSE RAFI Asia Pacific ex-Japan Index. The Index is designed to track the performance of the largest Asia Pacific companies (EXCLUDED Japanese companies) based on the FTSE RAFI Asia Pacific ex-Japan Developed Large-cap and Mid-cap indices. The index selection and weighting process is based on the following four fundamental measures of firm size: book value, income, sales and dividends.

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, from your adviser or broker. This document is intended for information purposes in regard to the existence and potential benefits of investing in ETFs. However, it is not intended to provide specific investment advice including, without limitation, investment, financial, legal, accounting or tax advice, or to make any recommendations about the suitability of the ETF for the circumstances of any particular investor. You should take appropriate advice as to any securities, taxation or other legislation affecting you prior to investment.

Without limiting any of the foregoing, in no event shall the index providers or their affiliates have any liability for any lost profits or indirect, punitive, special, or consequential damages (including lost profits), even if notified of the possibility of such damages. The ETFs are not issued, endorsed, sold or promoted by the index providers. The index providers make no warranties and bear no liability with respect to the ETFs.
