U.S. Market Neutral Momentum Fund
The Fund seeks performance results that correspond to the price and yield performance, before fees and expenses of the Dow Jones U.S. Thematic Market Neutral Momentum Index. The target index, which is compiled by Dow Jones Indexes, is equal weighted, dollar neutral, sector neutral and is not levered. The index rebalances monthly by identifying the highest momentum stocks as long positions and lowest momentum stocks as short positions, of approximately equal dollar amounts, within each sector.
The Exchange Traded Fund provides investors with the means of seeking the spread return between high and low momentum price stocks within the Dow Jones U.S. Index. A stock's momentum is based on its total return, which is a function of price performance and dividend returns over the first twelve of the last thirteen months. Stocks with a higher total return receive a higher ranking and stocks with a lower total return receive a lower ranking.
Momentum investing entails investing in securities that have had above-average returns and shorting securities that have had below-average returns. The performance of the Fund will depend on the difference in the rate of return between its long positions and short positions.

The number of days the Fund’s shares traded at a premium or discount noted in the table above was determined based on the midpoint of the bid/ask spread at approximately 4 PM EST.
There is a risk that these securities may be more volatile than a broad cross-section of securities, and momentum may be an indicator that a security’s price is peaking. In addition, there may be periods when the momentum style is out of favor, and during which the investment performance of a fund using a momentum strategy may suffer. Short selling could cause unlimited losses, derivatives could result in losses beyond the amount invested, and the value of an investment in the Fund may fall sharply. Shares are not individually redeemable and can be redeemed only in Creation Units. The market price of shares can be at, below or above the NAV.
Market Price returns are based upon the midpoint of the bid/ask spread at approximately 4:00PM Eastern time (when NAV is normally determined), and do not represent the returns you would receive if you traded shares at other times. Fund returns assume that dividends and capital gains distributions have been reinvested in the Fund at NAV. Some performance results reflect expense subsidies and waivers in effect during certain periods. Absent these waivers, results would have been less favorable.
