Not FDIC Insured • No Bank Guarantee • May Lose Value
ALPS Active REIT ETF (REIT)
Shares are not individually redeemable. Investors buy and sell shares on a secondary market. Only market makers or “authorized participants” may trade directly with the Fund, typically in blocks of 5,000, 25,000 or 50,000 shares.
Because the shares are traded in the secondary market, a broker may charge a commission to execute a transaction in shares, and an investor also may incur the cost of the spread between the price at which a dealer will buy shares and the somewhat higher price at which a dealer will sell shares.

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 publishes a daily Proxy Portfolio, a basket of securities designed to closely track the daily performance of the actual portfolio holdings. While the Proxy Portfolio includes some of the Fund's holdings, it is not the actual portfolio. Daily portfolio statistics will be provided as an indication of the similarities and differences between the Proxy Portfolio and the actual holdings. The Proxy Portfolio and other metrics, including Guardrail Amount, are intended to provide investors and traders with enough information to encourage transactions that help keep the Fund’s market price close to its NAV. There is a risk that market prices will differ from the NAV, ETFs trading on the basis of a Proxy Portfolio may trade at a wider bid/ask spread than shares of ETFs that publish their portfolios on a daily basis, especially during periods of market disruption or volatility and, therefore, may cost investors more to trade.
Although the Fund seeks to benefit from keeping its portfolio information confidential, market participants may attempt to use publicly available information to identify the Fund's investment and trading strategy. If successful, these trading practices may have the potential to reduce the efficiency and performance of the Fund.
The Fund will primarily invest in publicly traded common equity securities of US REITs. The Fund may also invest a portion of its assets in publicly traded common equity of US real estate operating companies (not structured as REITs), publicly traded preferred equity of US REITs and real estate operating companies, and cash and cash equivalents.
The Fund’s bid-ask spreads and premiums/discounts may be larger than those for traditional ETFs due to the lack of transparency, thus making trading in the Fund’s shares more expensive.
Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT): companies that own or finance income-producing real estate across a range of property sectors. Listed REITs have characteristics of both the income potential of bonds and growth potential of stocks.
