The Salt HighTrubeta US Market ETF seeks to track the investment results of The Salt High truBeta US Market Index. Construction of the Index begins with the constituents of the Solactive US Large & Mid Cap Index (the Equity Universe ), generally the 1,000 largest U.S.-listed common stocks and real estate investment trusts ( REITs ). Companies in the Equity Universe are then screened to keep only the 500 stocks with the highest average daily traded value over the past 30 days. Those 500 stocks are then analyzed using a proprietary algorithm developed by the Adviser to calculate each stock s truBeta forecast, i.e., its projected beta for the subsequent quarter, and to eliminate stocks whose performance is weakly correlated with the broader U.S. equity market (the remaining securities are referred to as the Index Universe ). A stock with a truBeta of more than 1.00 would be expected to be more volatile than the broader U.S. equity market and consequently, exhibit outsized reactions to market events (i.e., outperform the market in a rising market and underperform the market in a declining market).
