The ALPS Emerging Sector Dividend Dogs ETF (EDOG) seeks investment results that replicate as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the performance of the S-Network Emerging Sector Dividend Dogs Index (EDOGX).
The ALPS Emerging Sector Dividend Dogs ETF (EDOG) applies the 'Dogs of the Dow Theory' on a sector-by-sector basis using the S-Network Emerging Markets Liquid 500 Index as its starting universe of eligible securities. EDOG provides high dividend exposure across 10 sectors of the market (excluding the real estate sector) by selecting the five highest yielding securities in each sector and equally weighting them.

Facts and Characteristics
Shares of ETFs are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemable.
The Fund is subject to the additional risks associated with concentrating its investments in companies in the market sector.
Diversification does not eliminate the risk of experiencing investment losses.
The Fund’s investments in non-US issuers may involve unique risks compared to investing in securities of US issuers, including, among others, less liquidity generally, greater market volatility than US securities and less complete financial information than for US issuers. In addition, adverse political, economic or social developments could undermine the value of the Fund’s investments or prevent the Fund from realizing the full value of its investments. Finally, the value of the currency of the country in which the Fund has invested could decline relative to the value of the US dollar, which may affect the value of the investment to US investors.
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.
