Investment returns will fluctuate and are subject to market volatility, so that an investor's shares, when redeemed or sold, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Unlike mutual funds, shares of ETFs are not individually redeemable directly with the ETF. Shares of ETF are bought and sold at market price, which may be higher or lower than the net asset value (NAV).

Investment value will fluctuate, and shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.

Schwab receives marketing and promotional compensation from T. Rowe Price for our promotion of their mutual funds to clients of registered investment advisors that custody assets at Schwab, and for providing additional mutual fund marketing support to T. Rowe Price. Schwab receives various fees for the recordkeeping, shareholder services and other administrative services that Schwab provides to other no transaction fee funds, including certain institutional share classes that are available with no transaction fee to investors at Schwab. Fees are discussed more fully here.

Charles Schwab & Co., Inc. (member SIPC) receives remuneration from fund companies participating in the institutional no transaction fee (INTF) platform for recordkeeping and shareholder services, and other administrative services. Schwab receives greater remuneration on institutional share classes that participate in INTF than it would if the share class were made available with a transaction fee.

The Morningstar Rating™, or "star rating," is calculated for funds with at least a three-year history. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a fund’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 and the next 22.5% receive 4 stars. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. Ratings do not take into account the effects of sales charges and loads. © 2022 Morningstar, Inc. All rights reserved.
