Past performance is not indicative of future performance. To the extent any portion of the distribution is estimated to be sourced from something other than income, such as return of capital, the source would be disclosed on a Section 19(a)-1 letter located on the Fund's website under the "Literature" tab. Distributions may be comprised of sources other than income, which may not reflect actual fund performance.
ETFs may not be suitable for all investors. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate so that when shares are redeemed, they may be worth more or less than original cost. Most investors will also incur customary brokerage commissions when buying or selling shares of an ETF. ETF Shares may trade below their net asset value ("NAV"). The NAV of shares will fluctuate with changes in the market value of an ETF's holdings. In addition, there can be no assurance that an active trading market for shares will develop or be maintained. Tracking error risk refers to the risk that the Advisor may not be able to cause the ETF's performance to match or correlate to that of the ETF's Underlying Index, either on a daily or aggregate basis. Tracking error risk may cause the ETF's performance to be less than you expect.
