Risk Considerations
Allocation: The fund's exposure to different asset classes may not be optimal for market conditions at a given time. Asset allocation does not guarantee a profit or protect against a loss in declining markets.
Portfolio Turnover: The fund's principal investment strategies will result in a consistently high portfolio turnover rate. A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when fund shares are held in a taxable account.
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 of owning the ETF may exceed the cost of investing directly in the underlying securities.
Leveraged ETFs: The fund may invest in leveraged ETFs, which are generally non-diversified, and include the risks associated with use of derivatives, imperfect benchmark correlation, leverage, and market price variance, each of which can increase volatility and significantly decrease performance.
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.

SEC Yield is an annualized yield that is calculated by dividing the investment income earned by the Fund less expenses over the most recent 30 day period by the current NAV at the end of the 30 day period. The Subsidized Yield reflects fee waivers and/or expense reimbursements recorded by the Fund during the period. Without waivers and/or reimbursements, yields would be reduced. The Unsubsidized Yield does not adjust for any fee waivers and/ or expense reimbursements in effect. If the Fund does not incur any fee waivers and/or expense reimbursements during the period, the Subsidized Yield and Unsubsidized Yield will be identical.

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.

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