Qualifying securities must be exchange listed, have either the NASDAQ or NYSE as their primary exchange in order to be included in the index, and must satisfy certain other eligibility criteria.
The Wells Fargo® Hybrid and Preferred Securities Floating and Variable Rate Index is designed to track the performance of certain preferred stock and other hybrid securities that, in the judgment of Wells Fargo Securities, LLC ("Wells Fargo"), are comparable to preferred stock, and that meet certain eligibility criteria.

An investment cannot be made into an index.
There are risks involved with investing in ETFs, including possible loss of money. Shares are not actively managed and are subject to risks similar to those of stocks, including those regarding short selling and margin maintenance requirements. Ordinary brokerage commissions apply. The Funds' return may not match the return of the Underlying Index. The Funds are subject to certain other risks. Please see the current prospectus for more information regarding the risk associated with an investment in the Funds.
Preferred securities may be less liquid than many other securities, and in certain circumstances, an issuer of preferred securities may redeem the securities prior to a specified date.
An issuer may be unable to meet interest and/or principal payments, thereby causing its instruments to decrease in value and lowering the issuer's credit rating.
Interest rate risk refers to the risk that bond prices generally fall as interest rates rise and vice versa.
Shares are not individually redeemable and owners of the Shares may acquire those Shares from the Fund and tender those Shares for redemption to the Fund in Creation Unit aggregations only, typically consisting of 10,000, 25,000, 50,000, 75,000, 80,000, 100,000, 150,000 or 200,000 Shares.
