Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. Shares of any ETF are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns. Narrowly focused investments typically exhibit higher volatility. Investments in foreign securities involve political, economic and currency risks, greater volatility and differences in accounting methods. These risks are greater for investments in emerging markets. The Funds are non-diversified, meaning they may concentrate their assets in fewer individual holdings than a diversified fund. Diversification does not guarantee a profit or protect from loss in a declining market. Investments in smaller companies tend to have limited and greater price volatility that larger-capitalization companies. Several foreign countries have begun a process of privatizing certain entities and industries, which may lose money or be nationalized. The Fund invests in some economies that are heavily dependent upon trading with key partners. Any reduction in this trading may cause an adverse impact on the economy in which the Fund invests.
Factor Advisors, LLC serves as the investment adviser and Penserra Capital Management LLC serves as sub-advisor to the fund. The Funds are distributed by Quasar Distributors, LLC, which is not affiliated with Factor Advisors, LLC or any of its affiliates.
