State Street MSCI®1 ACWI ex USA Index Individual Investment Option2
Strategy: This Investment Option seeks an investment return that approximates as closely as practicable, before expenses, the performance of the MSCI® ACWI ex USA Index over the long term.
Risk: There are risks involved with investing, including possible loss of principal. Generally, among asset classes, stocks are more volatile than bonds or short-term instruments. Stock values fluctuate in response to the activities of individual companies and general market and economic conditions. Investing in foreign domiciled securities may involve risk of capital loss from unfavorable fluctuation in currency values, withholding taxes, from differences in generally accepted accounting principles or from economic or political instability in other nations. Investments in emerging or developing markets may be more volatile and less liquid than investing in developed markets and may involve exposure to economic structures that are generally less diverse and mature and to political systems which have less stability than those of more developed countries.
Additionally, an investment in the strategy is subject to a number of risks, which include but are not limited to: cash position risk, concentration risk, conflict of interest risk, counterparty risk, currency risk, custodial risk, defensive investing risk, depositary receipts risk, derivatives risk, emerging markets risk, equity risk, frontier markets risk, geographic concentration risk, hedging transactions and related risks, index risk, investment risk, issuer risk, large shareholder risk, leveraging risk, limited investment program risk, liquidity risk, market capitalization risk, market disruption and geopolitical risk, market risk, modeling risk, non-US securities risk, portfolio turnover risk, re-balancing policy risk, recent market volatility; government intervention risk, repurchase agreement risk, risk of investment in other pools, small and micro-cap companies risk, tax risk, and valuation risk. A description of the risks of investing in this Fund is available in the Fund's strategy disclosure document which is available from Program Manager upon request.
Risk management does not promise any level of performance or guarantee against loss of principal. State Street encourages investors to seek the advice of well-qualified financial and tax advisors, accountants, attorneys and other professional before making any investment or retirement decision.
