IMPORTANT RISK DISCLOSURES
The overnight strategy presents a risk of not capturing positive market movement during the day. With the overnight strategy the Fund gives up on potential upside gains during the normal hours exchanges are open.

The Advisor is a newly formed entity. The Fund is newly formed and has no operating history.
The NightShares 500 1x/1.5x ETF present different risks than other types of funds. These Funds operate pursuant to daily investment objectives and utilize leveraged investment techniques to achieve those objectives. Mathematical compounding combined with leverage prevent these ETFs from achieving their stated objectives over a period of time greater than one day. These Funds use leverage and are riskier than similar funds that do not use leverage. The Funds may not be suitable for all investors and should be used only by knowledgeable investors who understand the consequences of seeking daily leveraged (1.5x) investment results of such portfolio of securities, including the impact of compounding on Fund performance. Investors in the Funds should actively manage and monitor their investments, as frequently as daily. An investor in these Funds could potentially lose the full value of their investment within a single day.
Leverage Risk. This is the risk that leverage may cause the effect of an increase or decrease in the value of the Fund’s portfolio securities to be magnified and the value of shares of the Fund to be more volatile than if leverage was not used. Leverage may result from certain transactions, including the use of derivatives and borrowing.
Compounding Risk. The Fund has a single day investment objective, and the Fund’s performance for any other period is the result of its return for each day compounded over the period. The performance of the Fund for periods longer than a single day will very likely differ in amount, and possibly even direction, from 1.5 times (1.5x) the night return of the portfolio of large cap U.S. companies for the same period, before accounting for fees and expenses. Compounding affects all investments, but has a more significant impact on a leveraged fund. This effect becomes more pronounced as volatility and holding periods increase.
Investing involves risk, including loss of principal. There is no guarantee that the Funds will achieve their investment objectives. An investment in the Fund is not insured or guaranteed by any government agency. The Fund’s returns and share price will fluctuate, and you may lose money by investing in the Fund. Therefore, you should consider carefully the following risks before investing in the Fund; futures contract risk, overnight, market and geopolitical risk, COVID risk, active management risk, swap risk, counterparty risk, tax risk, inflation risk, operational risk, and investment style risk.
