1 A smoother path to US equity income? Introducing the benefits of low volatility dividend strategies and the new PowerShares S&P 500 High Dividend Low Volatility UCITS ETF June 2015 This document is directed at Professional Clients and Financial Advisers in Austria, France, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands and Qualified Investors in Switzerland and is not for consumer use.

2 The PowerShares S&P 500 High Dividend Low Volatility UCITS ETF aims to achieve a considered balance between dividend yield and volatility. In October 2012, S&P Dow Jones Indices launched the S&P 500 Low Volatility High Dividend Index, a unique rulesbased dividend strategy index designed to deliver high dividend yield and low return volatility in a single index. The index uses a simple two-step screening process to incorporate not only high dividend yield, but also the well-known low-volatility strategy. Indices that employ the low-volatility strategy have tended to outperform their benchmark on a risk-adjusted basis historically. (Source: S&P Dow Jones Indices).

3 A smoother path to US equity income? In the current climate of low interest rates, dividend paying stocks have become an increasingly attractive option in the search for income. However increased exposure to dividend paying stocks often introduces unwanted levels of volatility to a portfolio. The PowerShares S&P 500 High Dividend Low Volatility UCITS ETF aims to achieve a considered balance between dividend yield and volatility by providing exposure to 50 of the highest yielding companies within the S&P 500 Index, while meeting clearly specified diversification, volatility and tradability requirements. The unique combination of two single factor strategies income and volatility in a transparent, cost effective ETF wrapper provides investors with the performance potential of US equity exposure while seeking to reduce the volatility inherent in equity income investment. Why consider the PowerShares S&P 500 High Dividend Low Volatility UCITS ETF? Potential for meaningful contribution to a diversified income stream Historically observed low correlation to bond risk in rising rate environment 1 Index methodology designed for lower volatility than traditional dividend strategies 1 Source: Bloomberg L.P., Weekly Correlation. 02 A smoother path to US equity income?

4 A dividend-yield weighted index The S&P 500 Low Volatility High Dividend Index incorporates a selection and weighting methodology that seeks to enhance income with lower volatility. Figure 1 Index construction The screening and methodology The index is weighted by trailing 12-month dividend yield 1, with constituents being reweighted semi-annually in January and July 2 Universe: S&P 500 Index The top 75 stocks with the highest dividend yield are selected 3 75 Highest Dividend Yield Stocks The top 50 securities with the lowest realised volatility form the index 4 50 Lowest Volatility Stocks At each rebalancing, modifications are made to stock weights to ensure diversification across individual stocks and sectors S&P 500 Low Volatility High Dividend Index Index constituent weight constrained between 0.05% and 3.0% Weight of each GICS sector capped at 25%. Refer to the definition of GICS sectors in footnote 3. 1 Rebalancing reference date for the data used in the review is the last business date of the prior ember and June, respectively. 2 Effective after the close of the last business day in January and June. 3 With the number of stocks from each GICS sector capped at 10. If the number of stock from a sector reaches 10, the remaining highest yielding stock from other sectors are selected until the number of selected stock reaches 75. Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS). The GICS structure consists of 10 sectors, 24 industry groups, 67 industries and 156 subindustries into which S&P has categorized all major public companies. 4 Realised volatility is defined as the standard deviation of the security s daily prices returns over the prior 252 trading days.

For more information on backtesting please see Figure 4. Source: S&P Dow Jones Indices, March All information presented prior to the index launch date ( ) is backtested. The S&P 500 Low Volatility High Dividend Index features a lower standard deviation compared to the broad market index (as shown in figure 2 above). However, investors should take notice that this low volatility characteristic is not guaranteed and not strictly comparable to an index that solely screens constituents based on historical volatility. In the case of the S&P 500 Low Volatility High Dividend Index, the volatility screening is applied as the second filter to a preselected universe of stocks (the primary screening is trailing 12 month dividend yield). An index methodology designed to provide a lower level of volatility than found in more traditional dividend strategies. For more information about the Index, please refer to S&P Dow Jones Indices research papers Is the low volatility anomaly universal?, April 2015 The beauty of simplicity: The S&P 500 Low Volatility High Dividend Index, May 2015 Index factsheet, as at end of April A smoother path to US equity income?

5 High dividend and low volatility single factor strategies combined to deliver unique performance potential When looking at high dividend and low volatility strategies on a standalone basis, each index has demonstrated outperformance potential compared to the broader S&P 500 index over various time periods. S&P 500 Low Volatility High Dividend Index captured the tailwind of both factors S&P 500 Low Volatility High Dividend Index combines the High Dividend and Low Volatility factors into a single package. Figure 3 illustrates how the High Dividend and Low Volatility combination has historically delivered robust performance relative to the each of the factors in isolation.

Source: Bloomberg L.P., Investors cannot invest in an index directly. The S&P 500 Low Volatility High Dividend Index returns represent backtested performance for the period 7 ember 1999 to 16 September 2012 and actual performance from 17 September 2012, based on rules used in the creation of the index. Backtested performance does not represent actual performance and should not be interpreted as an indication of such performance; it is provided for illustration purposes only. Backtested performance has certain inherent limitations. For example, it ignores certain factors such as the trade timing, security liquidity and the fact that economic and market conditions in the future may differ significantly from those of the past. Accordingly, backtested performance is not a guide or indicator of future returns. 04 A smoother path to US equity income?
