AIEQ is the first US Equity ETF to utilize AI (artificial intelligence) throughout its investment process. It was first-to-market with IBM Watson combining structured financial data and investment intel from social media platforms and other unstructured data sources, such as earnings calls and regulatory reports. Its unique ability to aggregate US investment data around the clock gives us confidence in this AI strategy to capture optimized risk adjusted returns as the economy recovers from the global pandemic.
90% of the data in existence today was created in the past two years, and artificial intelligence is an important component to gain insight from it.1 AI can quickly work through data sets to draw conclusions and help inform investment decisions.
AIEQ is an active strategy designed to outperform the broad US market. As of 3/15/2021, it was outperforming the S&P 500 by over 20% on a 1-year basis.2
Carefully consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risk factors, charges, and expenses before investing. This and additional information can be found in the Fund’s prospectus, which may be obtained by calling 1-844-ETF-MGRS (1-844-383-6477), or by visiting www.etfmg.com/AIEQ. Read the prospectus carefully before investing.
Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. Shares of any ETF are bought and sold at market price (not NAV), may trade at a discount premium to NAV and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns. Narrowly focused investments typically exhibit higher volatility. The equity securities held in the Fund’s portfolio may experience sudden, unpredictable drops in value or long periods of decline in value. This may occur because of factors that affect securities markets generally or factors affecting specific issuers, industries, or sectors in which the Fund invests such as political, market and economic developments, as well as events that impact specific issuers.
The Fund is actively-managed and may not meet its investment objective based on the success or failure of the Equbot Model to identify investment opportunities. Fund holdings are subject to change. For full holdings information, please visit www.etfmg.com.
The portfolio managers may actively and frequently trade securities or other instruments in the Fund’s portfolio to carry out its investment strategies. A high portfolio turnover rate increases transaction costs, which may increase the Fund’s expenses. Some of the models used by the Adviser for the Fund are predictive in nature. The use of predictive models has inherent risks. When Models and Data prove to be incorrect or incomplete, any decisions made in reliance thereon expose the Fund to potential risks. For example, by relying on Models and Data, the Adviser may be induced to buy certain investments at prices that are too high, to sell certain other investments at prices that are too low, or to miss favorable opportunities altogether. Similarly, any hedging based on faulty Models and Data may prove to be unsuccessful.
