There can be no assurance that any fund will achieve its investment objectives. There are risks associated with investing, including the entire loss of principal invested. As interest rates rise, the value of fixed-income securities held by the Funds are likely to decrease. Securities with longer durations tend to be more sensitive to interest rate changes, making them more volatile than securities with shorter durations. As interest rates fall, the Funds' income will decline. Credit risk is the risk that issuers or guarantors is unable or unwilling to make timely interest and/or principal payments or otherwise honor its obligations. The Funds are subject to Non-Correlation Risk, Replication Management Risk, Issuer-Specific Changes, and Non-Diversified Fund Risk. In addition, the actively-managed ETFs are subject to management risk because they are actively managed portfolios. In managing the Funds' portfolio securities, the Investment Adviser will apply investment techniques and risk analyses in making investment decisions for the Funds, but there can be no guarantee that these will produce the desired results. Please refer to the individual ETF prospectus for a more detailed discussion of the fund-specific risks and considerations.
