Fund Description

The Fund invests at least 80% of its total assets in the securities of the Solactive MLP Infrastructure Index ("Underlying Index"). Moreover, at least 80% of the Fund's total assets will be invested in securities that have economic characteristics of the
Master Limited Partnership ("MLP") asset class. The Fund's 80% investment policies are non-fundamental and require 60 days prior written notice to shareholders before they can be changed.
The Underlying Index is intended to give investors a means of tracking the performance of the energy infrastructure MLP asset class in the United States. As of February 9, 2024, the Underlying Index was comprised of 15 MLPs engaged in the transportation, storage, compression services, marketing and distribution, and/or processing of natural resources ("Midstream and Downstream MLPs"). The Fund's investment objective and Underlying Index may be changed without shareholder approval.
The Underlying Index is sponsored by Solactive AG, the provider of the Underlying Index ("Index Provider"), which is an organization that is independent of, and unaffiliated with, the Fund and Global X Management Company LLC, the investment adviser for the Fund ("Adviser"). The Index Provider determines the relative weightings of the securities in the Underlying Index and publishes information regarding the market value of the Underlying Index.
The Adviser uses a "passive" or indexing approach to try to achieve the Fund's investment objective. Unlike many investment companies, the Fund does not try to outperform the Underlying Index and does not seek temporary defensive positions when markets decline or appear overvalued.
The Fund generally will use a replication strategy. A replication strategy is an indexing strategy that involves investing in the securities of the Underlying Index in approximately the same proportions as in the Underlying Index. However, the Fund may utilize a representative sampling strategy with respect to the Underlying Index when a replication strategy might be detrimental or disadvantageous to shareholders, such as when there are practical difficulties or substantial costs involved in compiling a portfolio of equity securities to replicate the Underlying Index, in instances in which a security in the Underlying Index becomes temporarily illiquid, unavailable or less liquid, or as a result of legal restrictions or limitations that apply to the Fund but not the Underlying Index.
Midstream and Downstream MLPs are publicly traded partnerships engaged in the transportation, storage, compression services, marketing and distribution, and/or processing of natural resources. By confining their operations to these specific activities, the interests, or units, of MLPs that elect to be taxed as a partnership are able to trade on public securities exchanges exactly like the shares of a corporation, without entity level taxation. The Fund may also invest in MLPs that elect to be taxed as corporations.
To refrain from being taxed as a corporation, a partnership must receive at least 90% of its income from qualifying sources as set forth in Section 7704(d) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code"). These qualifying sources include interest, dividends, real estate rents, gain from the sale or disposition of real property, income and gain from mineral or natural resources activities, income and gain from the transportation or storage of certain fuels, gain from the sale or disposition of a capital asset held for the production of income described in the foregoing, and, in certain circumstances, income and gain from commodities or futures, forwards and options with respect to commodities.
MLPs generally have two classes of owners, the general partner and limited partners. The general partner of an MLP is typically owned by a major energy company, an investment fund, or the direct management of the MLP, or is an entity owned by one or more of such parties. The general partner may be structured as a private or publicly traded corporation or other entity. The general partner typically controls the operations and management of the MLP through an up to 2% equity interest in the MLP plus, in many cases, ownership of common units and subordinated units. Limited partners typically own the remainder of the partnership, through ownership of common units, and have a limited role in the partnership's operations and management. MLPs are typically structured such that common units and general partner interests have first priority to receive quarterly cash distributions up to an established minimum amount ("minimum quarterly distributions" or "MQD"). Common and general partner interests also accrue arrearages in distributions to the extent the MQD is not paid. Once common and general partner interests have been paid, subordinated units receive distributions of up to the MQD; however, subordinated units do not accrue arrearages. Distributable cash in excess of the MQD is paid to both common and subordinated units and is distributed to both common and subordinated units generally on a pro rata basis. The general partner is also eligible to receive incentive distributions if the general partner operates the business in a manner which results in distributions paid per common unit surpassing specified target levels. As the general partner increases cash distributions to the limited partners, the general partner receives an increasingly higher percentage of the incremental cash distributions.
Due to the nature of the Fund's investments, the Fund will not qualify as a regulated investment company under the Code. As a result, the Fund will be taxed as a regular corporation ("C" corporation) for federal income tax purposes.
The Adviser seeks a correlation over time of 95% or better between the Fund's performance, before fund fees, expenses and taxes, and the performance of the Underlying Index. A correlation percentage of 100% would indicate perfect correlation. If the
Fund uses a replication strategy, it can be expected to have greater correlation to the Underlying Index than if it uses a representative sampling strategy.
The Fund concentrates its investments (i.e., hold 25% or more of its total assets) in a particular industry or group of industries to approximately the same extent that the Underlying Index is concentrated. As of January 31, 2024, the Underlying Index was concentrated in the oil, gas and consumable fuels industry and had significant exposure to the energy sector.
