Performance

Performance data quoted represents past performance and is no guarantee of future results. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than original cost. Returns less than one year are not annualized. NAV prices are used to calculate market price performance prior to the date when the Fund first traded on the New York Stock Exchange. Market performance is determined using the bid/ask midpoint at 4:00pm Eastern time, when the NAV is typically calculated. Market performance does not represent the returns you would receive if you traded shares at other times. For the fund’s most recent month end performance, please visit www.knowledgeleadersfunds.com/kldw.

The NAV is the ETF’s per share. The market price is the price that the ETF share currently trades in the secondary market.

Alpha-Seeking Focus

Many investors expect an ETF’s results simply to match those of a benchmark index. We designed the Knowledge Leaders Developed World ETF for investors who seek more.  KLDW seeks to transform the excess returns of highly innovative companies into portfolio alpha. We test for outperformance by measuring alpha, or excess returns against a benchmark. The chart below compares KLDW’s alpha generated since inception to the most widely-tracked international indexes by major ETF brands over the same period.  

Since inception, as of 9/30/17. Inception date 7/7/15.
Past performance does not guarantee future performance. For the comparison, all data above is benchmarked vs. the MSCI World Index. An investor cannot invest directly in an index.

Definitions

 
Please consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses before investing. The prospectus or summary prospectus that contains this and other information about the Funds is available by calling 844-428-3525 and should be read carefully.

Equity securities, such as common stocks, are subject to market, economic and business risks that may cause their prices to fluctuate. Currency Risk is the risk that the values of foreign investments may be affected by changes in the currency rates or exchange control regulations. Investments in foreign securities may involve risks such as social and political instability, market illiquidity, exchange-rate fluctuations, a high level of volatility and limited regulation. Investing in emerging markets involves different and greater risks, as these countries are substantially smaller, less liquid and more volatile than securities markets in more developed markets. The Fund’s return may not match or achieve a high degree of correlation with the return of the Index.

The bellwether companies list is comprised of the top six companies within each region that have the highest market capitalization.

Holdings are subject to change.

Knowledge Leaders Developed World ETF is distributed by Foreside Fund Services, LLC.

Shares of the Funds may be sold throughout the day on the exchange through any brokerage account. However, shares are not individually redeemable, and may only be redeemed directly from the Fund by Authorized Participants, in very large creation/redemption units. There can be no assurance that an active trading market for shares of an ETF will develop or be maintained. Shares may trade above or below NAV.
