Index returns shown do not represent the results of actual trading of investable assets/securities. Fossil Free Indexes maintains the Fossil Free Indexessm and calculates the index levels and performance shown or discussed, but does not manage actual assets. All performance presented prior to the index launch date is back-tested performance. Back-tested performance is not actual performance, but is hypothetical. The back-test calculations are based on the same methodology that was in effect when the index was officially launched. Past performance is no guarantee of future results nor of the relationship of returns between Fossil Free Indexes US and the S&P 500. Please see www.fossilfreeindexes.com/fossil-free-indexes-us/ for complete index methodology details. Index returns do not reflect payment of any sales charges or fees an investor may pay to purchase the securities underlying the index or investment funds that are intended to track the performance of the index. The imposition of these fees and charges would cause actual and back-tested performance of the securities/fund to be lower than the index performance shown.

It is not possible to invest in an index directly. Exposure to an asset class represented by an index is available through investable instruments based on that index. Fossil Free Indexes makes no assurance that investment products based on the index will accurately track index performance or provide positive investment returns. Fossil Free Indexes is not an investment advisor, and Fossil Free Indexes makes no representation regarding the advisability of investing in any such investment fund or other investment vehicle. A decision to invest in any such investment fund or other investment vehicle should not be made in reliance on any of the statements set forth in this document. Prospective investors are advised to make an investment in any such fund or other vehicle only after carefully considering the risks associated with investing in such funds, as detailed in an offering memorandum or similar document that is prepared by or on behalf of the issuer of the investment fund or other vehicle. Inclusion of a security within an index is not a recommendation by Fossil Free Indexes to buy, sell, or hold such security, nor is it considered to be investment advice. Nothing in this Web Site shall constitute financial or investment advice, or an offer to buy or sell, or a promotion or recommendation of any security, financial instrument or product or trading strategy.
