AMOM is an actively managed ETF, combining targeted momentum factor exposure with security selection, and is designed to outperform a passive momentum exposure. MTUM is the flagship index ETFs tracking a passive momentum exposure. Both ETFs broadly draw from the same universe of large-cap US stocks.
All funds are managed differently and do not react the same to economic or market events. The investment objectives, strategies, policies, or restrictions of other funds may differ and more information can be found in their respective prospectuses. Therefore, we generally do not believe it is possible to make direct fund to fund comparisons in an effort to highlight the benefits of a fund versus another similarly managed fund.
QRAFT AI-Enhanced US Large Cap Momentum ETF (AMOM)
Investment Objective: Capital Appreciation
Costs & Expenses: 0.75%
Liquidity: Because the Fund is an ETF, only a limited number of institutional investors (known as “Authorized Participants”) are authorized to purchase and redeem shares directly from the Fund. In addition, there may be a limited number of market makers and/or liquidity providers in the marketplace. To the extent either of the following events occur, shares of the Fund may trade at a material discount to their net asset value (“NAV”) per share and possibly face delisting: (i) Authorized Participants exit the business or otherwise become unable to process creation and/or redemption orders and no other Authorized Participants step forward to perform these services, or (ii) market makers and/or liquidity providers exit the business or significantly reduce their business activities and no other entities step forward to perform their functions.
Safety: The fund is subject to risks including, but not limited to common stock risk, issuer-specific risk, large capitalization risk, limited authorized participants, market makers, and liquidity providers risk, management risk, market risk, model and data risk, new/smaller fund risk, non-diversification risk, operational risk, portfolio turnover risk, sector focus risk, and trading risk.
Guarantees or Insurance: As with all funds, a shareholder is subject to the risk that his or her investment could lose money.
Fluctuation of Principal or Return: As with all funds, a shareholder is subject to the risk that his or her investment could lose money.
Tax Features: Distributions from ETFs are subject to taxation.
Behavioral Bias:Behavioral biases are irrational beliefs or behaviors that can unconsciously influence our decision-making process. Emotional biases involve taking action based on our feelings rather than concrete facts, or letting our emotions affect our judgment. Cognitive biases are errors in our thinking that arise while processing or interpreting the information that is available to us.
iShares MSCI USA Momentum Factor ETF (MTUM)
Investment Objective: The iShares MSCI USA Momentum Factor ETF (the “Fund”) seeks to track the investment results of an index composed of U.S. large- and mid-capitalization stocks exhibiting relatively higher price momentum.
Costs & Expenses: 0.15%
Liquidity: Only authorized participants (“APs”) may engage in creation or redemption transactions directly with the Fund. The Fund has a limited number of institutions that may act as APs and such APs have no obligation to submit creation or redemption orders. Consequently, there is no assurance that APs will establish or maintain an active trading market for the Shares. This risk may be heightened to the extent that securities held by the Fund are traded outside a collateralized settlement system. In that case, Aps may be required to post collateral on certain trades on an agency basis (i.e., on behalf of other market participants), which only a limited number of APs may be able to do. In addition, to the extent that Aps exit the business or are unable to proceed with creation and/ or redemption orders with respect to the Fund and no other AP is able to step forward to create or redeem Creation Units, this may result in a significantly diminished trading market for Shares, and Shares may be more likely to trade at a premium or discount to the Fund’s net asset value (“NAV”) and to face trading halts and/or delisting. Investments in non-U.S. securities, which may have lower trading volumes, may increase this risk. The Fund faces numerous market trading risks, including the potential lack of an active market for the Shares, losses from trading in secondary markets, and disruption in the creation/redemption process of the Fund. Any of these factors may lead to the Shares trading at a premium or discount to the Fund’s NAV.
Safety: The fund is subject to risks including, but not limited to, Authorized Participant Concentration risk, equity risk, index risk, industry concentration risk, healthcare sector risk, issuer-specific risk, market risk, market trading risk, momentum investing risk, non-correlation risk, non-diversified fund risk, and operational risk.
Guarantees or Insurance: An investment in the Fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the FDIC or any government agency.
Fluctuation of Principal or Return: As with all funds, a shareholder is subject to the risk that his or her investment could lose money.
Tax Features: The Fund’s distributions generally are taxed as ordinary income, capital gains, or some combination of both, unless you are investing through a tax-advantaged arrangement, such as a 401(k) plan or an individual retirement account; in which case your distributions may be taxed as ordinary income when withdrawn from such account.

Investing involves risk, including loss of principal. The Funds are subject to numerous risks including but not limited to: Equity Risk, Sector Risk, Large Cap Risk, Management Risk, and Trading Risk. The Funds rely heavily on a proprietary artificial intelligence selection model as well as data and information supplied by third parties that are utilized by such model. To the extent the model does not perform as designed or as intended, the Fund’s strategy may not be successfully implemented and the Funds may lose value. Additionally, the funds are non-diversified, which means that they may invest more of their assets in the securities of a single issuer or a smaller number of issuers than if they were a diversified fund. As a result, each Fund may be more exposed to the risks associated with and developments affecting an individual issuer or a smaller number of issuers than a fund that invests more widely. A new or smaller fund's performance may not represent how the fund is expected to or may perform in the long term if and when it becomes larger and has fully implemented its investment strategies. Read the prospectus for additional details regarding risks.
QRAFT AI-Enhanced U.S. Large Cap ETF: Companies in the health care sector are subject to extensive government regulation and their profitability can be significantly affected by restrictions on government reimbursement for medical expenses, rising costs of medical products and services, pricing pressure (including price discounting), limited product lines and an increased emphasis on the delivery of health care through outpatient services.
QRAFT AI-Enhanced U.S. Large Cap Momentum ETF: The Fund is subject to the risk that market or economic factors impacting technology companies and companies that rely heavily on technology advances could have a major effect on the value of the Fund’s investments. The value of stocks of technology companies and companies that rely heavily on technology is particularly vulnerable to rapid changes in technology product cycles, rapid product obsolescence, the loss of patent, copyright and trademark protections, government regulation and competition, both domestically and internationally, including competition from foreign competitors with lower production costs. Technology companies and companies that rely heavily on technology, especially those of smaller, less-seasoned companies, tend to be more volatile than the overall market.
QRAFT AI-Enhanced U.S. Next Value ETF: The value approach to investing involves the risk that stocks may remain undervalued, undervaluation may become more severe, or perceived undervaluation may actually represent intrinsic value. Value stocks may underperform the overall equity market while the market concentrates on growth stocks. The small- and mid-capitalization companies in which the Fund invests may be more vulnerable to adverse business or economic evens than larger, more established companies, and may underperform other segments of the market or the equity market as a whole. Securities of small- and mid-capitalization companies generally trade in lower volumes, are often more vulnerable to market volatility, and are subject to greater and more unpredictable price changes than larger capitalization stocks or the stock market as a whole.
Qraft AI-Pilot US Large Cap Dynamic Beta and Income ETF: Equity securities may fluctuate in value and can decline significantly in response to the activities of individual companies and general market and economic conditions.To the extent that the Fund temporarily invests defensively in Debt ETFs as part of its principal investment strategies, it may not be able to achieve its investment objective. The Fund’s defensive investing may not be effective in protecting its value. Generally, the value of debt securities will change inversely with changes in interest rates. To the extent that interest rates rise, certain underlying obligations may be paid off substantially slower than originally anticipated and the value of those securities may fall sharply.The Fund relies heavily on a proprietary artificial intelligence selection model as well as data and information supplied by third parties that are utilized by such model. To the extent the model does not perform as designed or as intended, the Fund’s strategy may not be successfully implemented and the Fund may lose value.
LG QRAFT AI-Powered U.S. Large Cap Core ETF: Returns on investments in securities of large companies could trail the returns on investments in securities of smaller and mid-sized companies or the market as a whole. The securities of large-capitalization companies may also be relatively mature compared to smaller companies and therefore subject to slower growth during times of economic expansion. Large-capitalization companies may also be unable to respond quickly to new competitive challenges, such as changes in technology and consumer tastes. The market price of an investment could decline, sometimes rapidly or unpredictably, due to general market conditions that are not specifically related to a particular company, such as real or perceived adverse economic or political conditions throughout the world, changes in the general outlook for corporate earnings, changes in interest or currency rates, or adverse investor sentiment generally. In pursuing the Fund’s investment objective, the Adviser consults a database generated by the LG-Qraft artificial intelligence system, which automatically evaluates and filters data according to parameters supporting a particular investment thesis. For the database, LG QRAFTAI selects and weights portfolios of companies in the Universe listed on the New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ to provide a balanced exposure to a variety of factors affecting the U.S. market including, but not limited to, quality, size,value, momentum, and volatility. The Fund expects to hold 100 companies in its portfolio. While it is anticipated that the Adviser will purchase and sell securities based on recommendations by the U.S. Large Cap Core Database, the Adviser has full discretion over investment decisions for the Fund.
