  16. 16. Performance Disclosure <ul><li>The inception date of the S&P ESG India Index was January 31 2008 , at the market close. All information presented prior to the index inception date is back-tested. The back-test calculations are based on the same methodology that was in effect when the index was officially launched. Complete index methodology details are available at www.indices.standardandpoors.com . </li></ul><ul><li>The inception date of the S&P ESG Pan Arab Index was February 1 2011, at the market close. All information presented prior to the index inception date is back-tested. The back-test calculations are based on the same methodology that was in effect when the index was officially launched. Complete index methodology details are available at www.indices.standardandpoors.com . </li></ul><ul><li>Past performance is not an indication of future results. Prospective application of the methodology used to construct the S&P ESG India Index, S&P ESG Egypt Index and S&P ESG Pan-Arab Index may not result in performance commensurate with the back-test returns shown. The back-test period does not necessarily correspond to the entire available history of the index. Please refer to the methodology paper for the index, available at www.standardandpoors.com for more details about the indices, including the manner in which they are rebalanced, the timing of such rebalancing, criteria for additions and deletions, as well as all index calculations. It is not possible to invest directly in an Index. </li></ul><ul><li>Also, another limitation of hypothetical information is that generally the index is prepared with the benefit of hindsight. Back-tested data reflect the application of the index methodology and selection of index constituents in hindsight. No hypothetical record can completely account for the impact of financial risk in actual trading. For example, there are numerous factors related to the equities (or fixed income, or commodities) markets in general which cannot be, and have not been accounted for in the preparation of the index information set forth, all of which can affect actual performance. </li></ul><ul><li>The index returns shown do not represent the results of actual trading of investor assets. Standard & Poor’s maintains the indices and calculates the index levels and performance shown or discussed, but does not manage actual assets. Index returns do not reflect payment of any sales charges or fees an investor would pay to purchase the securities they represent. The imposition of theses fees and charges would cause actual and back-tested performance to be lower than the performance shown. In a simple example, if an index returned 10% on a US $100,000 investment for a 12-month period (or US$ 10,000) and an actual asset-based fee of 1.5% were imposed at the end of the period on the investment plus accrued interest (or US$ 1,650), the net return would be 8.35% (or US$ 8,350) for the year. Over 3 years, an annual 1.5% fee taken at year end with an assumed 10% return per year would result in a cumulative gross return of 33.10%, a total fee of US$ 5,375, and a cumulative net return of 27.2% (or US$ 27,200). </li></ul>PROPRIETARY.
