Performance quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than that shown here. Performance data current to the most recent month end is available by calling (866) 972-4492. *The Adviser has contractually agreed to waive and/or reimburse certain fees/expenses until October 23, 2019. Performance would have been lower without fee waivers/expense reimbursements in effect.
A privately offered fund managed by Syntax Advisors, LLC was reorganized into the ETF as of January 2, 2019 upon commencement of the ETF operations. For periods prior to the commencement of ETF operations, the fund’s performance is that of the private fund. The Fund’s NAV price as of January 2, 2019 was used in calculating market price performance for January 2 and January 3, prior to the fund first trading on the New York Stock Exchange on January 4, 2019.

The returns were calculated using the methodology the SEC requires of registered funds. However, since the private fund did not calculate its returns on a per share basis, its returns have been calculated on its total net asset value. While the performance of the private fund is net of all fees and expenses, the performance of the private fund has not been restated to reflect the management and fee waivers applicable to the Fund. The Fund may be subject to higher fees which would negatively impact performance. The private fund began operations on January 1, 2015 and, on January 2, 2019, was reorganized into the Fund. Prior to the reorganization, the private fund had investment objectives, policies and strategies that were, in all material respects, the same as those of the Fund, and was managed in a manner that, in all material respects, complied with the investment guidelines and restrictions of the Fund. However, as a registered investment company, the Fund is subject to certain restrictions under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (the “1940 Act”) and the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (the “Internal Revenue Code”) which did not apply to the private fund. If the private fund had been subject to the provisions of the 1940 Act and the Internal Revenue Code, its performance could have been adversely affected. However, these restrictions are not expected to have a material effect on the Fund’s investment performance.
