Investing involves risk, including loss of principal. There is no guarantee that the Funds will achieve their investment objectives. In general, prices of equity securities are more volatile than those of fixed income securities. The prices of equity securities fluctuate in response to issuer-specific activities as well as factors unrelated to the fundamental condition of the issuer, including general market, economic and political conditions along with other factors. While the shares of ETFs trade on secondary markets, they may not readily trade in all market conditions and may trade at significant discounts in periods of market stress. The Funds were recently organized with no operating history. In addition, the Advisor has not previously managed an ETF, which may increase the risks of investing in the Funds.
Short selling involves the sale of securities borrowed from a third party. The short seller profits if the borrowed security’s price declines. If a shorted security increases in value, a higher price must be paid to buy the stock back to cover the short sale, resulting in a loss. The Funds may incur expenses related to short selling, including compensation, interest or dividends, and transaction costs payable to the security lender, whether the price of the shorted security increases or decreases. The amount the Funds could lose on a short sale is theoretically unlimited. Short selling also involves counterparty risk – the risk associated with the third party ceasing operations or failing to sell the security back.
The Funds are actively managed and are thus subject to management risk. The Adviser will apply its investment techniques and strategies in making investment decisions for the Funds, but there is no guarantee that its techniques will produce the intended results.
Shareholders may pay more than NAV when buying Fund shares and receive less than NAV when selling Fund shares, because shares are bought and sold at current market prices. The performance quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results.
Shares of The Future Fund ETFs are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Funds. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns.
Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, and charges and expenses of the Funds before investing. The prospectus contains this and other information about the Funds and should be read carefully before investing. The prospectus may also be obtained by calling 877.466.7090.
