Leading the Defined Outcome ETF Revolution™
Investing involves risks, and loss of principal is possible. The Fund may have characteristics unlike many other traditional investment products and may not be suitable for all investors. For more information regarding whether an investment in the Fund is right for you, please see "Investor Suitability" in the prospectus.
Management Risk The Fund is subject to management risk because it is an actively managed portfolio. The Sub-Adviser will apply investment techniques and risk analyses in making investment decisions for the Fund, but there can be no guarantee that the Fund will meet its investment objective.
Step-Up Strategy Risk. There is no guarantee the Fund will be successful in implementing a step-up strategy. In order to provide the Buffer, the Fund's strategy is subject to maximum potential gains. This maximum potential gain will likely change at each resetting of the Option's Portfolio. In the event an investor purchases Shares after the FLEX Option contracts were entered into and prior to a step-up or the expiration of such option contracts, there may be little or no ability for that investor to experience an investment gain on their Shares or little or no ability to benefit from the Buffer until the Sub-Adviser rebalances the Fund's Options Portfolio. However, there is no guarantee that, at the end of any given month, the Fund will be able to enter a more advantageous Options Portfolio and implement the step-up mechanism.
The Fund's step-up strategy may result in performance that is lower than that of the Underlying ETF or of a fund with an options portfolio that does not implement a step-up strategy. Because the value of the Options Portfolio does not increase or decrease at the same rate as the Underlying ETF's share price on a day-to-day basis (although they generally move in the same direction) there will be periods of time in which the Fund's NAV underperforms the price return of the Underlying ETF. In this situation, if the Sub-Adviser rebalances the Options Portfolio prior to its one-year expiration in accordance with the step-up strategy, the Fund may have underperformed the Underlying ETF for that period of time. Similarly, the Sub-Adviser may elect to reset the Fund's Options Portfolio at a point in time in which the Fund has utilized all or a portion of its Buffer. While this will provide shareholders with the potential of an additional Buffer, the Options Portfolio would simultaneously reset its maximum gain potential and could lower the Fund's upside performance potential over certain time periods.
Buffer Risk There can be no guarantee that the Fund will be successful in providing the Buffer. A shareholder may lose their entire investment. The Buffer is provided at the expiration of the options contracts. Any interim losses experienced by the Underlying ETF may be experienced by the Fund and its shareholders. Because the Options Portfolio provides a Buffer against the first 9% or 15% of Underlying ETF losses only for the duration of the one-year term of the options contract, it is possible that, during the term of any Options Portfolio, shareholders will realize some losses on initial price decreases of the Underlying ETF of less than 9% or 15%. These potential losses are possible even if a shareholder remained in the Fund for a one-year period after an Options Portfolio was established, as it is likely that the Options Portfolio will reset during time.
Shares are bought and sold at market price, not net asset value (NAV), and are not individually redeemable from the fund. NAV represents the value of each share's portion of the fund's underlying assets and cash at the end of the trading day. Market price returns reflect the midpoint of the bid/ask spread as of the close of trading on the exchange where fund shares are listed.
