Soundwatch Hedged Equity ETF

SHDG is an actively-managed ETF designed to reduce risk during stock market declines and seeks to provide long-term capital appreciation.  On the portfolio, the Fund systematically writes (sells) equity index call options, covered calls and option spreads to potentially generate additional income. A portion of this income is used to systematically purchase a series of protective equity index put options or put spreads in an effort to reduce the negative impact of stock market declines on long-term performance. 

The Fund follows a proprietary rules-based BUY, HOLD & HEDGE™ strategy, which selects option strikes, maturities, and trade dates based upon several measurable market factors. Through the use of options, the Fund intends to reduce the downside risk inherent in equity investments while generating long-term equity returns in line with the benchmark index.

IOPV, or Indicative Optimized Portfolio Value, is a calculation disseminated by the stock exchange that approximates the Fund's NAV every fifteen seconds throughout the trading day.

Median 30 Day Spread is a calculation of Fund's median bid-ask spread, expressed as a percentage rounded to the nearest hundredth, computed by: identifying the Fund's national best bid and national best offer as of the end of each 10 second interval during each trading day of the last 30 calendar days; dividing the difference between each such bid and offer by the midpoint of the national best bid and national best offer; and identifying the median of those values.

The performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when sold or redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost and current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Performance current to the most recent month-end can be obtained by calling (1-800-617-0004).

Short term performance, in particular, is not a good indication of the fund's future performance, and an investment should not be made based solely on returns.

The Fund has adopted the performance history of the Predecessor Fund, which operated as a mutual fund. The Predecessor Fund was also advised by the Adviser and had the same investment objective and substantially similar strategies as the Fund. The table illustrates how the Predecessor Fund's average annual returns for the one-year, five-year and since inception periods compare with those of a broad measure of market performance. The Predecessor Fund's past performance, before and after taxes, does not necessarily indicate how the Fund will perform in the future. Updated performance information will be available by calling the Fund toll-free at 888-BHH-4601 (888-244-4601) and on the Fund's website at
