NYSE’s Judy Shaw talks with Rene Casis, ETF Portfolio Manager, about our newly launched Low Volatility ETF – LVOL and its differentiated strategy among other low volatility products in the marketplace today.
2021 Distribution Calendar
Seeks to track the market over longer term, while realizing less volatility, particularly during downturns.
There is no assurance that the fund will be less volatile than the market over the long term or for any specified period. The fund’s strategy of constructing a portfolio that realizes lower volatility than the market may not produce the intended result. A security’s volatility can change very quickly, and specific securities in the fund’s portfolio may become more volatile than expected. Additionally, low volatility investments may underperform the equity markets during periods of strong, rising or speculative equity markets.
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.
Seeks capital appreciation.
Uses an actively managed strategy and methodology that:
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.
Index performance does not represent the fund's performance. It is not possible to invest directly in an index.
Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) are bought and sold through exchange trading at market price (not NAV), and are not individually redeemed from the fund. Shares may trade at a premium or discount to their NAV in the secondary market. Brokerage commissions 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.
