An investment in the Funds involves risk, including possible loss of principal. In addition to the normal risks associated with investing, the Strategas Global Policy Opportunities ETF (SAGP) is subject to lobbying focused investment risk. The advisor’s investment process utilizes lobbying intensity as the primary input when selecting investments for the Fund’s portfolio and does not consider an investment’s traditional financial metrics. The Fund may underperform other funds that select investments utilizing more traditional investment metrics. The Fund may also focus its investments in a particular country or geographic region outside the U.S. and may be more susceptible to economic, political, regulatory or other events or conditions affecting issuers and countries within that country or geographic regions well as risks of increased volatility and lower trading volume. Emerging markets involve heightened risks related to the same factors as well as increased volatility and lower trading volume.

In addition to the normal risks associated with investing, the Strategas Macro Thematic Opportunities ETF (SAMT) is subject to macro-thematic trend investing strategy risk. Therefore, the value of the Fund may decline if, among other reasons, macro-thematic trends believed to be beneficial to the Fund do not develop as anticipated or maintain over time, or the securities selected for inclusion in the Fund’s portfolio do not perform as anticipated.
