Investors should carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the Funds before investing.

Read the prospectus carefully before you invest.
The investment return of the Fund seeks to capture the change in expected dividend values of listed index options over time. The Fund will generally have a positive investment return only when the future expected dividend value of listed index options exceeds the expected dividend value of index options as reflected in the market price at which the Fund buys and sells the option contracts. The Fund does not capture actual dividend payments, and Fund returns may go down even when actual dividend payments rise. Unlike more traditional products, the Fund does not seeks returns based on appreciation in the stock market price of equity securities. This means that the returns on a Fund investment are not intended to correlate to the returns of the overall stock market (e.g., the value of the Fund investment may go down when overall equity markets go up, or vice versa). The Fund does not generate dividend income, and is not appropriate for investors seeking dividend income. Investment returns of the Fund are treated for tax purposes as capital gains or losses, as applicable. See the section “Taxes” in the prospectus for more information.
Investing involves risks, including possible loss of principal. Past performance does not guarantee future results. There is no assurance the stated objective(s) will be met. Not FDIC insured. See the section “Principal Risks” in the prospectus for important risk disclosures.
Investments in options, swaps, forward contracts and futures contracts are subject to a number of risks, including correlation risk, interest rate risk, market risk, leverage risk, and liquidity risk. Each of these risks could cause the Fund to vary from its stated objective, could cause the Fund to lose money and may have a negative impact on the value of your investment. Please refer to the Fund Risks for further explanation of individual risks.
