Fund Description

The Fund will normally invest at least 90% of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in the securities that comprise the Index. The Fund, using an indexing investment approach, attempts to replicate, before fees and expenses, the performance of the Index. The Index is owned and was developed and sponsored by Nitrogen Wealth, Inc. (the “Index Provider”). The Index Provider is a financial technology company that develops platforms to capture quantitative measurements of client and portfolio risk for investment advisors. The Index Provider has retained Nasdaq, Inc. to calculate and maintain the Index. Nasdaq, Inc. may, from time to time, exercise reasonable discretion as it deems appropriate in order to ensure Index integrity.The Index is designed to select low volatility securities issued by companies operating in emerging market countries. According to the Index Provider, to be eligible for inclusion in the Index, a security must be a constituent of the Nasdaq Emerging Markets Large Mid CapTM Index (the “Base Index”) and meet a minimum three-month average daily dollar trading volume threshold. The Base Index is a comprehensive, rules-based index designed to measure stock market performance of companies operating in emerging market countries, as determined by Nasdaq, Inc. Nasdaq, Inc. classifies a country as “emerging” based on a number of criteria, including national income per capita, national market capitalization and national trading volume. Emerging market countries are generally characterized by lower market efficiency and less strict standards in accounting and securities regulation than developed market countries. Nasdaq, Inc. classifies a company as operating in a country primarily by its country of incorporation, domicile and primary exchange listing. The Index may include securities that are denominated in non-U.S. currencies. The Index may be composed of, but not limited to, common stocks, depositary receipts, preferred shares and real estate investment trusts (“REITs”).According to the Index Provider, security selection for the Index will be conducted in the following manner:1.The selection universe for the Index begins with all eligible securities in the Base Index.2.The Base Index’s industry weights are calculated and assigned to the Index.3.Securities are then ranked by trailing twelve month price volatility, a measure of the security’s volatility over the preceding year, within their respective countries.4.The 25 securities with the lowest volatility from each country are selected for inclusion in the Index. If fewer than 25 securities qualify from a particular country, all securities are selected from that country for inclusion in the Index.5.Securities within the same country and industry are equally weighted and then adjusted so that no security weight exceeds 3% of the Index.The Index is rebalanced and reconstituted semi-annually and the Fund will make corresponding changes to its portfolio shortly after the Index changes are made public. The Fund will be concentrated in an industry or a group of industries to the extent that the Index is so concentrated. As of June 30, 2023, the Index was composed of 240 securities with market capitalization ranges from $1.46 billion to $225.49 billion. As of June 30, 2023 the Fund had significant investments in financial companies, information technology companies, Indian issuers, Taiwanese issuers and Asian issuers, although this may change from time to time.The Fund's investments will change as the Index changes and, as a result, the Fund may have significant investments in jurisdictions or investment sectors that it may not have had as of June 30, 2023. To the extent the Fund invests a significant portion of its assets in a given jurisdiction or investment sector, the Fund may be exposed to the risks associated with that jurisdiction or investment sector. In order to gain exposure to certain Chinese companies that are included in the Index but are unavailable to direct investment by foreign investors, the Fund invests significantly in non-Chinese shell companies that have created structures known as variable interest entities (“VIEs”) in order to gain exposure to such Chinese companies.
