30 Day Median Bid/Ask Spread

The ETF’s 30 Day Median Bid-Ask Spread is calculated by identifying the ETF’s national best bid and national best offer ("NBBO") as of the end of each 10 second interval during each trading day of the last 30 calendar days and dividing the difference between each such bid and offer by the midpoint of the NBBO. The median of those values is identified and that value is expressed as a percentage rounded to the nearest hundredth.

The Hybrid KHYB Index (noted as “index” above in the chart) consists of the Solactive USD China Corporate High Yield Bond Index from the inception of the fund through August 2, 2021 and the JP Morgan Asia Credit Index (JACI) Non-Investment Grade Corporate Index going forward.

Performance shown for periods before August 2, 2021, reflects that of the prior Fund. Future performance may be different than past performance due to changes, including investment objectives and principal investment strategies. Additionally, before August 2, 2021, a co-manager assisted in the day-to-day portfolio management, and the Fund previously sought to track the performance of a different Index before fees and expenses.

The performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when sold or redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost and current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted.

The Growth of $10,000 chart reflects an initial investment of $10,000 on the day prior to the selected time period and assumes reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. For the growth of $10,000 chart since inception, the initial investment of $10,000 is instead made on the inception date of the Fund. Fund expenses, including management fees and other expenses were deducted. The growth of a $10,000 investment in the fund is hypothetical and for illustration purposes only.
