Risk Considerations

Exchange-Traded Funds (ETF): The value of an ETF may be more volatile than the underlying portfolio of securities it is designed to track. The costs to the fund of owning shares of an ETF may exceed the cost of investing directly in the underlying securities.
Master Limited Partnerships: Investments in MLPs may be adversely impacted by interest rates, tax law changes, regulation, or factors affecting underlying assets.
Energy Industry Concentration: The fund's investments are concentrated in the energy industry and presents greater risks than if the fund were broadly diversified over numerous sectors of the economy.
Leverage: When a fund leverages its portfolio, the fund may be less liquid, may liquidate positions at an unfavorable time, and the volatility of the fund's value may increase.
Options: Selling call options may limit the opportunity to profit from the increase in price of the underlying asset. Selling put options risks loss if the option is exercised while the price of the underlying asset is rising. Buying options risks loss of the premium paid for those options.
Market Price/NAV: At the time of purchase and/or sale, an investor's shares may have a market price that is above or below the fund's NAV, which may increase the investor's risk of loss.
Market Volatility: Local, regional, or global events such as war, acts of terrorism, the spread of infectious illness or other public health issues, recessions, or other events could have a significant impact on the portfolio and its investments, including hampering the ability of the portfolio manager(s) to invest the portfolio's assets as intended.
Prospectus: For additional information on risks, please see the fund's prospectus.

Please consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the Fund carefully before investing. The prospectus contains this and other information about the Fund. Contact us at 1-888-383-0553 or visit www.virtus.com for a copy of the Fund's prospectus. Read the prospectus carefully before you invest or send money.

The Fund is an actively managed exchange-traded fund (“ETF”) and does not seek to replicate the performance of a specified index. The Fund may have a higher portfolio turnover than funds that seek to replicate the performance of an index.

Performance data quoted represents past results. Past performance is no guarantee of future results and current performance may be higher or lower than the performance shown. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate so your shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.

Closing Price:
 The Closing Price is the price of the last reported trade on the fund's primary exchange. If there has been no reported trade for a particular date, the Closing Price represents the 4PM Bid/Offer Midpoint. 

4PM Bid/Offer Midpoint: The midpoint between the highest bid and the lowest offer on the listing exchange, as of the time that the Fund's NAV is calculated (usually 4:00pm Eastern Time).

Premium/Discount: The amount the Fund is trading above or below the reported NAV (based on 4PM Bid/Offer Midpoint).

The Fund is an exchange-traded fund (“ETF”). The “net asset value” (NAV) of the Fund is determined at the close of each business day, and represents the dollar value of one share of the Fund; it is calculated by taking the total assets of the Fund, subtracting total liabilities, and dividing by the total number of shares outstanding. The NAV of the Fund is not necessarily the same as its intraday trading value. Fund investors should not expect to buy or sell shares at NAV because shares of ETFs such as the Fund are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Thus, shares may trade at a premium or discount to their NAV in the secondary market. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns.

NAV returns are calculated using the Fund’s daily 4:00 p.m. NAV, and include the reinvestment of all dividends and other distributions (reinvested at the Fund's NAV on distribution ex-date). Market price returns are calculated using the 4:00 pm midpoint between the bid and offer, and include the reinvestment of all dividends and other distributions (reinvested at the 4:00pm bid/offer midpoint on distribution ex-date). Market price returns do not represent the return you would receive if you traded at other times.

Beta: A quantitative measure of the volatility, or systematic risk, of a security or a portfolio in comparison to the market as a whole.

30-day SEC Yield is a standardized yield calculated according to a formula set by the SEC, and is subject to change.

Distribution Rate is the annual rate that an investor would receive if the most recent distribution remained the same going forward. The rate represents a single distribution from the Fund and does not represent total return of the Fund. The distribution rate is calculated by annualizing the most recent distribution and dividing it by the most recent NAV.

2 Distribution History: Distributions are represented on a cash basis and may be reclassified at year end for tax purposes. The Fund will send you a Form 1099-DIV for the calendar year that will tell you how to report these distributions for federal income tax purposes. STCG: Short Term Capital Gain, LTCG: Long Term Capital Gain

Returns for periods of less than one year are cumulative total returns.

Not insured by FDIC/NCUSIF or any federal government agency. No bank guarantee. Not a deposit. May lose value.
