The NETLease Corporate Real Estate ETF (NETL) seeks to track the performance, before fees and expenses, of the Fundamental Income Net Lease Real Estate Index (NNNLSCTR). The index’s goal is to track the performance of the U.S. listed Net Lease real estate sector in a diversified manner by screening for real estate companies that focus on investments in net lease real estate and assigning only those companies identified to the Index. The Index places constraints on constituents to protect against concentration in any one company or tenant.
A net lease is a type of lease agreement made between the property owner and the tenant in which the tenant is responsible for paying both the rent and most, if not all, the property expenses. The most common net lease is a “triple-net lease”, where the tenant pays rent “net” of all the expenses of a property, namely, (1) property taxes, (2) insurance and (3) maintenance. Property owners benefit from the consistency of receiving rental revenue paid by the tenant without the responsibility for managing the property or paying expenses that can change over time. In addition, net leases generally have long initial lease terms of 10 years or more providing predictability to the property owner.
All types of properties are net leased to companies including properties used to generate revenue and profits like restaurants, convenience stores or drug stores, distribution centers used by the businesses or other logistics-focused companies to move goods from production to customers, manufacturing facilities to make the goods, and corporate headquarters. When you invest in the net lease sector, you are investing in the backbone of American business.
Net Lease REITs are real estate investment trusts which own portfolios of properties primarily comprised of properties leased to single tenants under net leases. The Net Lease real estate sector is defined and grouped by lease type as opposed to a property type such as industrial, office, or retail. Collectively, the Net Lease Sector, as defined by the Fundamental Income Net Lease Real Estate Index, includes 24 companies which own more than 23,000 properties across all 50 states leased to tenants operating in a variety of industries.

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.
