The ALPS REIT Dividend Dogs ETF (RDOG) seeks investment results that replicate as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the performance of an index called the S-Network REIT Dividend Dogs Index (RDOGX).
The ALPS REIT Dividend Dogs ETF (RDOG) applies the 'Dogs of the Dow Theory' to each Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) segment by using the S-Network Composite US REIT Index as its starting universe of eligible securities. RDOG provides equal exposure to the five highest yielding US REITs within nine equally-weighted REIT segments.

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.
Ownership of real estate is subject to fluctuations in the value of underlying properties, the impact of economic conditions on real estate values, the strength of specific industries renting properties and defaults by borrowers or tenants. Real estate is a cyclical business, highly sensitive to general and local economic conditions and developments, and characterized by intense competition and periodic overbuilding. Credit and interest rate risk may affect real estate companies’ ability to borrow or lend money.
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.
