Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. Shares are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Investment in commodities are subject to much higher volatility than more traditional investments. Narrowly focused investments and investment in smaller companies typically exhibit higher volatility. Bonds and bond funds are subject to interest rate risk and will decline in value as interest rates rise. Mortgage-backed securities are subject to prepayment and extension risk and therefore react differently to changes in interest rates than other bonds. Small movements in interest rates may quickly and significantly reduce the value of certain mortgage-backed securities.

Impact Shares ETFs are distributed by SEI Investments Distribution Co. (SIDCO), which is not affiliated with Impact Shares Corp., the Investment Adviser for the Funds, the YWCA, NAACP, or UNCDF. Nor is SIDCO affiliated with Morningstar or Sustainalytics.
