2019 Distribution Calendar
2019 ETF Tax Information
Seeks to provide consistent tax-free income by employing an active, research-driven process that draws from across the municipal bond universe and adjusts exposure depending on prevailing market conditions.
This fund is an actively managed Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) that does not seek to replicate the performance of a specified index. To determine whether to buy or sell a security, the portfolio managers consider, among other things, various fund requirements and standards, along with economic conditions, alternative investments, interest rates and various credit metrics. If the portfolio manager considerations are inaccurate or misapplied, the fund's performance may suffer.
Investment income may be subject to certain state and local taxes and, depending on your tax status, the federal alternative minimum tax (AMT). Capital gains are not exempt from state and federal income tax.
The lower rated securities in which the fund invests are subject to greater credit risk, default risk and liquidity risk.
Generally, as interest rates rise, the value of the securities held in the fund will decline. The opposite is true when interest rates decline.
Credit quality ratings on underlying securities of a fund are obtained from three Nationally Recognized Statistical Rating Organizations ("NRSROs"), Standard & Poor's, Moody's and Fitch. Ratings are converted to the equivalent Standard & Poor's rating category for purposes of presentation. For municipal funds, each security is assigned the highest rating provided by the NRSROs. A "non-rated" designation is assigned when a public rating is not available for a security. This designation does not necessarily indicate low credit quality. The letter ratings are provided to indicate the credit worthiness of the underlying bonds in the portfolio. Long-term ratings generally range from AAA (highest) to D (lowest). Includes payable amounts related to securities purchased but not settled at period end. Due to rounding, these values may exceed 100%.
Seeks current income that is exempt from federal income tax.
An actively-managed municipal bond portfolio that seeks consistent tax-free income:
Bid Ask Midpoint:
The midpoint between the highest bid and the lowest offer on the primary listing exchange, as of the time that the Fund's NAV is calculated, generally around 4 p.m. (Eastern time).
The price of the last reported trade on the fund's primary exchange.
Average annual returns illustrate the annual compounded returns that would have produced the cumulative total return if the fund's performance had remained constant throughout the period indicated. Returns for periods less than one year are not annualized.
ETF Market Performance (Inception to Date):
The fund's per share Net Asset Value (NAV) is the value of one share of the fund. Market Price is determined by using the midpoint between the highest bid and the lowest offer on the primary stock exchange on which the shares of the fund are listed for trading, as of the time that the fund's NAV is calculated. The NAV Return is based on the NAV of the fund, and the Market Price Return is based on the market price per share of the fund. Since shares of the fund did not trade in the secondary market until after the fund's inception, for the period from inception to the first day of secondary market trading in shares of the fund, the NAV of the fund is used as a proxy for the Market Price to calculate market returns. Market Price and NAV returns assume that dividends and capital gain distributions have been reinvested in the fund at Market Price and NAV, respectively.
30-Day SEC Unsubsidized Yield: Represents net investment income earned by a fund over a 30-day period, expressed as an annual percentage rate based on the fund's share price at the end of the 30-day period. Unsubsidized yield does not adjust for any fee waivers and/or expense reimbursements in effect.
12 Month Distribution Rate: The sum of a fund's total trailing 12-month interest and dividend payments divided by the most recent day's ending share price (NAV).
Yield to Maturity: The internal rate of return of the security based on the given market price—it is the single discount rate that equates a security price (inclusive of accrued interest) with its projected cashflows.
Yield to Worst: Lowest yield possible for a security given the current price, taking into account both call dates and maturity.
Maturity: Describes the portfolio of the fund in terms of the different maturities of the securities it holds.
Weighted average life to maturity (WALM) is a measure of the sensitivity of a fixed income portfolio to interest rate changes. WALM is the average time in years to receive the principal repayments. Accordingly, WALM reflects how a portfolio would react to deteriorating credit or tightening liquidity conditions.

Performance data quoted represents past performance and is no guarantee of future results. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than original cost. Returns less than one year are not annualized. Net Asset Value (NAV) prices are used to calculate market price performance prior to the date when the fund first traded on the New York Stock Exchange. Market performance is determined using the bid/ask midpoint at 4:00 p.m. Eastern time, when the NAV is typically calculated. Market performance does not represent the returns you would receive if you traded shares at other times. For the fund's most recent quarter end performance, please call 1-800-345-6488.
Index performance does not represent the fund's performance. It is not possible to invest directly in an index.
ETF shares may be bought or sold throughout the day at their market price, not their Net Asset Value (NAV), on the exchange on which they are listed. Shares of ETFs are tradable on secondary markets and may trade either at a premium or a discount to their NAV on the secondary market.
ETFs trade like stocks, fluctuate in market value and may trade at prices above or below the ETF's net asset value. Brokerage commissions and ETF expenses will reduce returns.

The gross expense ratio is the fund's total annual operating costs, expressed as a percentage of the fund's average net assets for a given time period. It is gross of any fee waivers or expense reimbursement. The net expense ratio is the expense ratio after the application of any waivers or reimbursement. This is the actual ratio that investors paid during the fund's most recent fiscal year. Please see the prospectus for more information.
