Performance Disclosure

The performance quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Performance for periods greater than 1 year is annualized. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when sold or redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost.

Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted.
Shares are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. The returns shown do not represent the returns you would receive if you traded shares at other times. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns. The market price returns are based on the official closing price of an ETF share or, if the official closing price isn't available, the midpoint between the national best bid and national best offer (“NBBO”) as of the time the ETF calculates current NAV per share. NAVs are calculated using prices as of 4:00 PM Eastern Time.

Important Information

Prospectus Disclosure

Carefully consider the Fund's investment objectives, risks, and charges and expenses before investing. This and other information can be found in the Fund’s full or summary prospectus, which may be obtained by calling +1 (626) 407-4581 or visiting

Please read the prospectus carefully before investing.

Risk of Investing

Investing involves risk, including the risk of total loss of principal. Please consider the following risks before investing in the ETF.

Investment Objectives

There can be no assurance that an ETF will achieve its stated objectives.

Small Company Risk

Investments in smaller companies typically exhibit higher volatility.

International Risk

International investments may involve risk of capital loss from unfavorable fluctuation in currency values, from differences in generally accepted accounting principles or from social, economic or political instability in other nations.

Active Management Risk

The Adviser’s judgments about the attractiveness, value, or potential appreciation of the Fund’s investments may prove to be incorrect. The Fund may trade securities actively, which could increase its transaction costs (thereby lowering its performance) and could increase the amount of taxes you owe by generating short-term gains, which may be taxed at a higher rate.

Geographic Focus Risk

The Fund focuses its investments in a single country and as a result, it may be subject to greater price volatility and risk of loss.
