LQIG tracks the MarketAxess U.S. Investment Grade 400 Corporate Bond Index (the “Index”). The Index’s emphasis on liquidity and use of sector/issuer constraints in index construction may make LQIG an efficient core beta risk and portfolio management tool. Bonds in the Index are screened using MarketAxess proprietary Relative Liquidity Score (RLS), where bonds are considered for inclusion based on having higher-than-average liquidity relative to the broader U.S. corporate bond market, and then assessed for their tradability at the Index level, with final weights derived after constraining for specific issuer and sector characteristics.

To pursue its investment objective, the Fund invests, under normal market circumstances, at least 80% of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in equity securities of companies from foreign countries, or depositary receipts representing such securities. The Fund considers an issuer to be from a foreign country if: (i) its securities are organized under the laws of a foreign country or the issuer maintains its principal place of business in a foreign country; (ii) its securities are traded principally in a foreign country; or (iii) during the issuer’s most recent fiscal year, it derived at least 50% of its revenues or profits from goods produced or sold, investments made, or services performed in a foreign country or has at least 50% of its assets in a foreign country.

SOGU seeks daily inverse investment results and is very different from most other exchange-traded funds. The pursuit of daily inverse investment goals means that the return of the Fund for a period longer than a full trading day may have no resemblance to -100% of the return of the De-SPAC Index (the Index). This means that the return of the Fund for a period longer than a trading day will be the result of each single day’s compounded return over the period, which will very likely differ from -100% of the return of the Index for that period. Longer holding periods and higher volatility of the Index increase the impact of compounding on an investor’s returns. During periods of higher Index volatility, the volatility of the Index may affect the Fund’s return as much as, or more than, the return of the Index. Further, the return for investors that invest for periods longer or shorter than a trading day should not be expected to be -100% of the performance of the Index for the period. The Fund is not suitable for all investors. The Fund is designed to be utilized only by knowledgeable investors who understand the potential consequences of seeking daily inverse (-1X) investment results, understand the risks associated with the use of shorting and are willing to monitor their portfolios frequently. The Fund is not intended to be used by, and is not appropriate for, investors who do not intend to actively monitor and manage their portfolios. For periods longer than a single day, the Fund will lose money if the Index’s performance is flat, and it is possible that the Fund will lose money even if the Index’s performance decreases over a period longer than a single day. An investor could lose the full principal value of his/her investment within a single day. The Fund is an actively managed exchange traded fund.
