Important Definitions & Disclosures

The model is not a mutual fund or other type of security and will not be registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission as an investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, and no units or shares of the model will be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, nor will they be registered with any state securities regulator. Accordingly, the model is not subject to compliance with the requirements of such acts.

An investment in the Strategy may be subject to risks which include, but are not limited to, risks of underlying funds, ETPs, dividend paying securities, foreign securities, emerging market issuers, foreign currency, mortgage REITs, preferred securities, credit, high yield securities, tax, interest rate, call, and concentration risks, high portfolio turnover, model and data, management, operational, authorized participant concentration, lack of active market, trading issues, market, affiliated fund, and non-diversified risks all of which may adversely affect the Strategy. Emerging market issuers and foreign securities may be subject to securities markets, political and economic, investment and repatriation restrictions, different rules and regulations, less publicly available financial information, foreign currency and exchange rates, operational and settlement, and corporate and securities laws risks. REITs expose investors to the risks of owning real estate directly, as well as to risks that relate specifically to the way in which REITs are organized and operated; management and administration fees, heavy cash flow dependency, default by borrowers, self-liquidation, as well as potentially-reduced Fund returns due to companies failing to meet Internal Revenue Code requirements to quality for tax-free pass-through income. BDCs invest in private companies and thinly traded securities of public companies, including debt instruments of such companies, which may be less liquid, have higher default risk, and have less available public information.

All investing is subject to risk, including the possible loss of the money you invest. As with any investment strategy, there is no guarantee that investment objectives will be met and investors may lose money. Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss in a declining market. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
