Off-balance sheet

The overall exposure of a fund includes “physical” positions and “off-balance sheet” positions. Unlike so-called “physical” positions, which are listed in the portfolio’s list of investments from an accounting standpoint, off-balance sheet items consist of positions on financial futures instruments such as derivatives. Examples of derivatives products include futures contracts, swaps, options contracts. Maximum off-balance sheet exposure is outlined in the fund prospectus.
