TOPIX, which covers Japanese stock market widely, is a market benchmark having a function as an investment target and calculated based on the aggregate market value of component issues after free float adjustment. The calculation method bases the aggregate market value as of the close on January 4, 1968 at 100, and expresses subsequent aggregate market values as index values.

The continuity of the index is ensured by adjusting the aggregate market value for paid-in capital increases, new listing, delisting, etc. to eliminate the impact of fluctuations in the market capitalization resulting from non-market factors. TOPIX is Japan’s leading index and is well recognized abroad.

Investors are not guaranteed the investment principal that they commit. Investors may incur a loss and the value of their investment principal may fall below par as the result of a decline in market price or NAV. All profits and losses arising from investments in the Fund belong to the investors (beneficiaries). This fund is different from saving deposit.

The Fund invests primarily in stocks. The NAV of the Fund may fall and investors may suffer a loss due to a decline in stock prices or deterioration in the financial conditions and business performance of an equity issuer.

Major risks are as follows:

1. Price Fluctuation Risk
Stock prices fluctuate due to the changes in the information of the company’s growth and profitability, and any changes in such information. They also fluctuate as they are affected by economic and political conditions in Japan and abroad. There is a risk that the Fund may incur material losses if unexpected changes occur in stock price movements or liquidity.

2. Liquidity Risk
There is a risk that the Fund will incur unexpected losses when the market size or trading volumes is small. The purchase and sale prices of securities are influenced by the trading volume, resulting in the inability of the Fund to sell certain stocks in its portfolio at prices that are expected to be realized in light of the prevailing market trend, that a security can sold as appraised, or that the transaction volume is limited regardless of the price levels.

3. Credit Risk
There is a risk that the Fund will incur material losses in the event of a crisis that directly or indirectly affects the business of a corporation in which the Fund invests. The prices of stocks of issuers may substantially decline (possibly to zero) due to fears of default or corporate bankruptcy, which can contribute to decline in the Fund's NAV.

4. Security-lending Risk
Lending of securities is accompanied by counterparty risks, which are the risks of default or cancellation of lending agreements as a result of bankruptcy, etc., of the counterparties. As a result, there is a risk that the Fund will suffer unexpected losses. Following the default or cancellation of a lending agreement, when liquidation procedures are implemented by using the collateral that is set aside in the lending agreement, the procurement cost of buying back the securities can surpass the collateral value, due to price fluctuations in the market. In such cases, the Fund is required to pay the difference, which may cause the Fund to incur losses.

Risk of Discrepancy between TOPIX and NAV

This Fund seeks to match the NAV volatility with that of the TOPIX, however, we cannot guarantee that movements will be identical to those of the index for the following reasons:

  • The potential market impact from the trading, etc., of individual issues when portfolio adjustments are made due to changes in selected issues on the TOPIX or capital transfers, or costs borne by the Fund such as trust fees, brokerage commission, and audit costs, etc.
  • Dividends may be paid by stocks in the portfolio and fees may be earned for securities lent.
  • When derivative transactions such as futures are made, there may be disparity between the price movements of all or some of such transactions and that of the TOPIX.

Discrepancy between the market prices at which stocks are traded on financial instruments exchanges and the NAV
The Fund is listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange and the units are traded on that exchange. The market price of the units is affected primarily by the size of demand for the Fund, its performance, and how attractive it is to investors in comparison with their other investments. It is not possible to predict whether the units will sell in the market above or below the NAV.
* The factors that contribute to fluctuations in the NAV are not limited to those listed above.

Additional Considerations

  • These materials are distribution materials created by Nikko Asset Management in order to increase investors' understanding of “Listed Index Fund TOPIX”.
  • The provisions stipulated in Article 37-6 of the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act ("cooling-off period") are not applicable to Fund transactions.
  • This Fund differs from deposits or insurance policies in that it is not protected by the Deposit Insurance Corporation of Japan or the Policyholders Protection Corporation of Japan. Furthermore, units purchased from registered financial institutions, such as banks, are exempted from compensation by the Japan Investor Protection Fund.
  • When the Fund faces big redemption causing short term cash requirement or sudden change in the main trading market condition, there can be temporal decline in the liquidity of holding assets, resulting in the risks that Fund unable to trade securities at the expected market prices or appraised prices, or encounters limitation in trading volume. This may result in the negative influence on NAV, suspension of redemption applications, or delay in making payment of redemption.
  • When applying to invest in the Fund, please make the decision to invest carefully after taking the time to read the delivered pre-agreement document and other relevant materials in detail.
