New equity ETFs from Jennison

PJIO’s investment strategy is substantially similar to the $4.1 billion PGIM Jennison International Opportunities Fund, which has a history of long-term outperformance.2

Lastly, the PGIM Jennison Focused Mid-Cap ETF (PJFM) invests in medium-sized companies diversified across industries and sectors where the investment team sees the potential for durable earnings growth on an intermediate term basis.

A new offering from PGIM Fixed Income

Investing in mutual funds and ETFs involves risks. Some funds have more risk than others. The investment return and principal value will fluctuate and shares when sold may be worth more or less than the original cost and it is possible to lose money.

The Funds are actively managed exchange traded funds (ETFs) and thus do not seek to replicate the performance of a specified index. ETF shares are not individually redeemable from the Funds. Shares may only be redeemed directly from the Fund by Authorized Participants in Creation Units.

Fixed income investments are subject to credit, market, and interest rate risks (including duration risk and prepayment risk), and their value will decline as interest rates rise; call and redemption risk, where the issuer may call a bond held by the Fund for redemption before it matures and the Fund may lose income; liquidity risk, which exists when particular investments are difficult to sell; and emerging markets risk, which exposes the Fund to greater volatility and price declines.

Investment products are distributed by Prudential Investment Management Services LLC, a a member FINRA and SIPC. Jennison Associates is a registered investment advisor. PGIM Fixed Income is an affiliate of PGIM. Both are Prudential Financial companies. © 2023 Prudential Financial, Inc. and its related entities.

Investment products are not insured by the FDIC or any federal government agency, may lose value, and are not a deposit of or guaranteed by any bank or any bank affiliate.
