The S&P 500 Index is a market-capitalization-weighted index of the 500 largest U.S. publicly traded companies. Non-Investment Grade Bonds are bonds that are rated BB+ and below by Standard & Poor and Ba1 and below by Moody’s. The repayment ability of bond’s with these ratings is considered speculative by the rating agencies.
Investment Objective The NETLease Corporate Real Estate ETF (the “Fund”) seeks to track the performance, before fees and expenses, of the Fundamental Income Net Lease Real Estate Index (the “Index”).
This describes the fees and expenses that you may pay if you buy and hold shares of the Fund (“Shares”). This does not include the brokerage commissions that investors may pay
on their purchases and sales of Shares.
Annual Fund Operating Expenses (expenses that you pay each year as a percentage of the value of your investment) Management Fees: 0.60%
Distribution and/or Service (12b-1) Fees: None
Other Expenses* 0.00%
Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses 0.60%
*Estimated for the current fiscal year.
Fund distributions are generally taxable as ordinary income, qualified dividend income, or capital gains (or a combination), unless your investment is in an IRA or other tax-advantaged account. Distributions on investments made through tax-deferred arrangements may be taxed later upon withdrawal of assets from those accounts.
The following discussion is a summary of some important U.S. federal income tax considerations generally applicable to investments in the Fund. Your investment in the Fund may have other tax implications. Please consult your tax advisor about the tax consequences of an investment in Shares, including the possible application of foreign, state, and local tax laws. The Fund intends to qualify each year for treatment as a regulated investment company (a “RIC”) under the Code. If it meets certain minimum distribution requirements, a RIC is not subject to tax at the fund level on income and gains from investments that are timely distributed to shareholders. However, the Fund’s failure to qualify as a RIC or to meet minimum distribution requirements would result (if certain relief provisions were not available) in fund-level taxation and, consequently, a reduction in income available for distribution to shareholders. 14 Unless your investment in Shares is made through a tax-exempt entity or tax-advantaged account, such as an IRA plan, you need to be aware of the possible tax consequences when the Fund makes distributions, when you sell your Shares listed on the Exchange; and when you purchase or redeem Creation Units (institutional investors only). The tax legislation commonly referred to as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the “Tax Act”) makes significant changes to the U.S. federal income tax rules for taxation of individuals and corporations, generally effective for taxable years beginning after December 31, 2017. Many of the changes applicable to individuals are temporary and would apply only to taxable years beginning after December 31, 2017 and before January 1, 2026. There are only minor changes with respect to the specific rules only applicable to a RIC, such as the Fund. The Tax Act, however, makes numerous other changes to the tax rules that may affect shareholders and the Fund. You are urged to consult with your own tax advisor regarding how the Tax Act affects your investment in the Fund.
The Fund seeks to provide a high level of income and moderate long-term capital appreciation by tracking the performance of a benchmark index that measures the performance of publicly traded equity REITs and other real estate-related investments.
The following describes the fees and expenses you may pay if you buy and hold ETF Shares of the Fund.
(Fees paid directly from your investment)
Transaction Fee on Purchases and Sales: None through Vanguard (Broker fees vary)
Transaction Fee on Reinvested Dividends: None through Vanguard (Broker fees vary)
Transaction Fee on Conversion to ETF Shares: None through Vanguard (Broker fees vary)
(Expenses that you pay each year as a percentage of the value of your investment)
Management Fees: 0.11%
12b-1 Distribution Fee: None
Other Expenses: 1 0.01%
Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses 0.12%
Distributions (other than any return of capital) are taxable to you whether or not you reinvest these amounts in additional ETF Shares.
Distributions declared in December—if paid to you by the end of January—are taxable as if received in December.
Any dividend distribution or short-term capital gains distribution that you receive is taxable to you as ordinary income. If you are an individual and meet certain holdingperiod requirements with respect to your ETF Shares, you may be eligible for reduced tax rates on “qualified dividend income,” if any, distributed by the Fund. Dividend distributions attributable to the Fund’s REIT investments are generally not eligible for qualified dividend income treatment.
Any distribution of net long-term capital gains is taxable to you as long-term capital gains, no matter how long you have owned ETF Shares.
Capital gains distributions may vary considerably from year to year as a result of the Fund‘s normal investment activities and cash flows.
A sale of ETF Shares is a taxable event. This means that you may have a capital gain to report as income, or a capital loss to report as a deduction, when you complete your tax return.
Dividend distributions attributable to the Fund’s REIT investments are generally not eligible for the corporate dividends-received deduction.
Your cost basis in the Fund will be decreased by the amount of any return of capital that you receive. This, in turn, will affect the amount of any capital gain or loss that you realize when selling your ETF Shares.
Return of capital distributions generally are not taxable to you until your cost basis has been reduced to zero. If your cost basis is at zero, return of capital distributions will be treated as capital gains.
References to other mutual funds or products should not be considered an offer of those securities.
Stocks are generally perceived to have more financial risk than bonds in that bond holders have a claim on firm operations or assets that is senior to that of equity holders. In addition, stock prices are generally more volatile than bond prices. Equities, bonds, and other asset classes have different risk profiles, which should be considered when investing.
Fundamental Income Net Lease Real Estate Index: The Fundamental Income Net Lease Real Estate Index (NETLXT) is a rules based, passive index that, for the first time, defines and tracks the performance of the rapidly expanding net lease real estate sector in a diversified manner.
It is not possible to invest directly in an index.
Exchange Traded Concepts, LLC serves as the investment advisor. Fundamental Income serves as the index provider. The Funds are distributed by Quasar Distributors, LLC which is not affiliated with Fundamental Income, Exchange Traded Concepts, LLC or any of their affiliates.
The Funds' investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses must be considered carefully before investing.

Investments involve risk. Principal loss is possible. The fund may trade at a premium or discount to NAV. Shares of any ETF are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns. The Index, and consequently the Fund, is expected to concentrate its investments in real estate companies. As a result, the value of the Fund’s shares may rise and fall more than the value of shares of a fund that invests in securities of companies in a broader range of industries.
Investments in real estate companies and REITs involve unique risks, including limited financial resources, they may trade less frequently and in limited volume, and they may be more volatile than other securities. In addition, securities in the real estate sector are subject to certain risks associated with direct ownership of real estate and the risk that the value of their underlying real estate may go down. Companies in the Net Lease Real Estate sector may be affected by unique factors related to leasing properties to single tenants including dependence on the financial performance of its’ tenants and lease terms related to rent escalations based on economic measurements. The fund may invest in foreign securities which involves political, economic and currency risks, differences in accounting methods and greater volatility. Investments in small and mid-sized companies have historically been subject to greater investment risk than large company stocks.
