By taking a future-looking approach to dividend analysis, investors can seek to outperform the market by investing in the healthiest companies on the market.
DIVY does not generate dividend income, and is not appropriate for investors seeking dividend income.
DIVY seeks to produce long-term capital appreciation. Unlike more traditional products, the Fund does not seek returns based on appreciation in the stock market price of equity securities. This means that the returns on your Fund investment are not intended to correlate to the returns of the overall stock market (for example, the value of your Fund investment may go down when overall equity markets go up, or vice versa). LEAD seeks long-term capital appreciation by tracking the performance, before fees and expenses, of the Reality Shares DIVCON Leaders Dividend Index (the “Benchmark Index”). DFND seeks long-term capital appreciation by tracking the performance, before fees and expenses, of the Reality Shares DIVCON Dividend Defender Index (the “Benchmark Index”). GARD seeks long-term capital appreciation by tracking the performance, before fees and expenses, of the Reality Shares DIVCON Dividend Guard Index (the “Benchmark Index”).
