This ETF is different from traditional ETFs. Traditional ETFs tell the public what assets they hold each day. This ETF will not. This may create additional risks for your investment. For example:

 - You may have to pay more money to trade the ETF’s shares. This ETF will provide less information to traders, who tend to charge more for trades when they have less information.

 - The price you pay to buy ETF shares on an exchange may not match the value of the ETF’s portfolio. The same is true when you sell shares. These price differences may be greater for this ETF compared to other ETFs because it provides less information to traders.

 - These additional risks may be even greater in bad or uncertain market conditions.

 - The ETF will publish on its website each day a “Proxy Portfolio” designed to help trading in shares of the ETF. While the Proxy Portfolio includes some of the ETF’s holdings, it is not the ETF’s actual portfolio.

The differences between this ETF and other ETFs may also have advantages. By keeping certain information about the ETF secret, this ETF may face less risk that other traders can predict or copy its investment strategy. This may improve the ETF’s performance. If other traders are able to copy or predict the ETF’s investment strategy, however, this may hurt the ETF’s performance. For additional information regarding the unique attributes and risks of the ETF, see the Principal Risks section of the prospectus.

Game time! Are you ready to kick off your investing plan?

By Gene Walden, Senior Finance Editor | 10/25/2022

The autumn air is crisp, and the sun is bright – football season is well underway. As you cheer on your favorite team this year, you may notice some subtle parallels between your team’s game plan and your own investment plan.

Like football, investing requires a long-term strategy and the perseverance to pursue your plan from kick-off to conclusion.

Early in the game, you may decide to take a relatively aggressive approach because you’ll still have a lot of time on the clock to recover from any fumbles or other mistakes. While your goal may be to score a touchdown with every investment, there may be times you decide to punt if a particular investment is no longer aligned with your goals and objectives.

Along the way, you may expect a range of different outcomes. Some plays may yield small gains, others bigger gains; sometimes you’ll be stopped for no gain at all, and other times you may be thrown for a loss. It’s all part of the game – in investing as in football.

As the game progresses, if you’re well on your way to success, you may choose to become more conservative to protect your assets. But if you’ve fallen behind, you may opt to remain aggressive to try to reach your investment goals by the time you retire.

Solid defense is also an important part of investing – just as it is in football. You can try to avoid steep investment losses by diversifying your portfolio through mutual funds or a broad range of stocks, bonds or other types of investments. While diversification won’t necessarily help you avoid losses altogether, it may help you reduce volatility and short-term losses during uncertain times.

The obvious difference between football and investing is that one is a game and the other is real life. But whether you’re an armchair quarterback or a serious investor forging ahead toward your retirement goals, one observation from the late, great coach Vince Lombardi still holds true: “Inches make champions.”
