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.

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.
