Before considering an investment in the Fund, you should understand that you could lose money.
New Fund Risk: The Fund is a new fund which may result in additional risk. There can be no assurance that the Fund will grow to an economically viable size, in which case the Fund may cease operations. In such an event, investors may be required to liquidate or transfer their investments at an inopportune time.
The Fund employs a “passive management” investment approach designed to track the performance of the Underlying Index.
There is no guarantee that the Fund itself, or any of the ETFs in the Fund's portfolio, will perform exactly as its underlying index.
Certain environmental, social, and governance ("ESG") criteria may be considered when evaluating an investment opportunity. This may result in the Fund having exposure to securities or sectors that are significantly different than the composition of the Fund's benchmark and performing differently than other funds and strategies in its peer group that do not take into account ESG criteria. There is no assurance that employing ESG strategies will result in more favorable investment performance.
Mid-Capitalization Companies Risk: Mid-capitalization companies may be more vulnerable to adverse general market or economic developments, and their securities may be less liquid and may experience greater price volatility than larger, more established companies.

**Diversification cannot prevent a loss or guarantee a profit.
Shares are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Total Returns are calculated using the daily 4:00 pm ET net asset value (NAV). Since May 31, 2016, the price used to calculate the market price returns ("MP") is the mean between the day's last bid and ask prices on the fund's primary exchange. Any market price returns prior to May 31, 2016 were calculated using the day's closing price on the fund's primary exchange. The market price returns do not represent returns an investor would receive if shares were traded at other times.
Fund shares are not individually redeemable and will be issued and redeemed at their NAV only through certain authorized broker-dealers in large, specified blocks of shares called "creation units", and otherwise, can be bought and sold only through exchange trading. Creation units are issued and redeemed principally in-kind.
