Key Features of the Fund

Key Benefits

TYBS, a non-leveraged inverse ETF is a trading tool that allow investors to either seek profit, or seek to apply a hedge, for an existing U.S. Treasuries position that they anticipate will experience negative returns, in the short-term.

  • The fund allows investors a tactical trading alternative to selling out of an existing position and creating a taxable event.

  • Since they don’t employ leverage, compounding is less magnified compared to leveraged inverse ETFs.

The performance data quoted represents past performance; past performance does not guarantee future results; the investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate; an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost; current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Returns for performance under one year are cumulative, not annualized.

Short-term performance, in particular, is not a good indication of the fund’s future performance, and an investment should not be made based solely on returns. Because of ongoing market volatility, fund performance may be subject to substantial short-term changes. For additional information, see the fund’s prospectus or summary prospectus.
