Fund Disclosure

Shares of ETFs are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemable.

Diversification does not eliminate the risk of experiencing investment losses. 

Smaller and mid-size companies often have a more limited track record, narrower markets, less liquidity, more limited managerial and financial resources and a less diversified product offering than larger, more established companies. As a result, their performance can be more volatile, which may increase the volatility of the Fund’s portfolio.

The Fund employs a “passive management” - or indexing - investment approach and seeks investment results that correspond (before fees and expenses) generally to the performance of its underlying index. Unlike many investment companies, the Fund is not “actively” managed. Therefore, it would not necessarily sell or buy a security unless that security is removed from or added to the underlying index, respectively.

Growth at a Reasonable Price (GARP): an equity investment strategy that seeks to combine tenets of both growth investing and value investing to select individual stocks.

ALPS Advisors, Inc., registered investment adviser with the SEC, is the investment adviser to the Fund. ALPS Advisors, Inc. and ALPS Portfolio Solutions Distributor, Inc., affiliated entities, are unaffiliated with Barron’s© and MarketGrader Capital LLC.
