Investment Overview

The Fund seeks to provide passive exposure to U.S. listed, real asset securities by tracking the Indxx Real Asset Income Index, which is comprised of real estate, natural resources and infrastructure stocks with a history of providing income and dividend growth. The Fund differs from other real asset strategies in that it does not directly invest in hard assets or commodity instruments; rather, it exclusively invests in stocks in real asset categories, and has a specific focus on income. Investing in stocks across real asset segments may offer investors the opportunity to participate in equity growth potential, with the additional potential benefit of protecting against rising inflation.

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 of owning the ETF may exceed the cost of investing directly in the underlying securities.
Equity Securities: The market price of equity securities may be adversely affected by financial market, industry, or issuer-specific events. Focus on a particular style or on small or medium-sized companies may enhance that risk.
Equity REITs: The fund may be negatively affected by factors specific to the real estate market, including interest rates, leverage, property, and management.
Infrastructure: A fund that focuses its investments in infrastructure-related companies will be more sensitive to conditions affecting their business or operations.
MLPs: Investments in Master Limited Partnerships may be adversely impacted by tax law changes, regulation, or factors affecting underlying assets.
Passive Strategy/Index Risk: A passive investment strategy seeking to track the performance of the underlying Index may result in the fund holding securities regardless of market conditions or their current or projected performance. This could cause the fund's returns to be lower than if the fund employed an active strategy.
Correlation to Index: The performance of the fund and its index may vary somewhat due to factors such as fund flows, transaction costs, and timing differences associated with additions to and deletions from its index.
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.
Prospectus: For additional information on risks, please see the fund's prospectus.

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.

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.
