* The Fund’s investment adviser, AGF Investments LLC (“Adviser”) has contractually undertaken until at least November 1, 2019, to forgo current payment of fees and/or reimburse expenses of each Fund so that the total annual operating expenses (excluding interest, taxes, brokerage commissions and other expenses that are capitalized in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, dividend, interest and brokerage expenses for short positions, acquired fund fees and expenses, and extraordinary expenses) (“Operating Expenses”) are limited to 0.75% of average daily net assets for the AGFiQ U.S. Market Neutral Momentum Fund, AGFiQ U.S. Market Neutral Value Fund, and AGFiQ U.S. Market Neutral Size Fund, 0.45% for the AGFiQ U.S. Market Neutral Anti-Beta Fund and AGFiQ Hedged Dividend Income Fund (collectively, the “Expense Caps”). This undertaking can only be changed with the approval of the Board. Each Fund has agreed that it will repay the Adviser for fees and expenses forgone or reimbursed for that Fund provided that repayment does not cause the Operating Expenses to exceed the preceding amounts of that Fund’s average daily net assets. Any such repayment must be made within three years from the date the expense was borne by the Adviser. Any such repayment made under any prior expense cap cannot cause a Fund’s Operating Expenses to exceed the lower of the current Expense Cap or the annual rate of daily net assets for the Fund under the terms of a prior expense cap.

**The Fund’s investment adviser, AGF Investments LLC ("Adviser"), has contractually agreed to waive the fees and reimburse expenses of the Funds until May 15, 2022, so that the total annual operating expenses (excluding interest, taxes, brokerage commissions and other expenses that are capitalized in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, dividend, interest and brokerage expenses for short positions, acquired fund fees and expenses, and extraordinary expenses) ("Operating Expenses") of the Funds are limited to 0.45% of average net assets. In addition, for USHG, the Adviser has contractually agreed to reduce its management fees in an amount equal to any acquired fund fees and expenses incurred by the Fund from its investments in a fund advised by the Adviser such that there is no duplication of management fees between AGFiQ Dynamic Hedged U.S. Equity ETF and AGFiQ U.S. Market Neutral Anti-Beta Fund. These undertakings can only be changed with the approval of the Board. The Funds have agreed they will repay the Adviser for fees and expenses waived or reimbursed for a period of 36 months following such waiver or reimbursement, provided that repayment does not cause the Operating Expenses to exceed the lower of 0.45% of the Funds' average net assets and the expense cap in place at the time of the Adviser’s waiver or reimbursement.

Risks: There is no guarantee that the Funds will achieve their objective. An investment in the Funds is subject to risk including the possible loss of principal amount invested. The risks associated with each Fund are detailed in the prospectus and include, but not limited to, tracking error risk, mid-cap risk, industry concentration risk, market neutral style risk, short sale risk and specific risks related to exchange traded funds. There is a risk that during a “bull” market, when most equity securities and long only ETFs are increasing in value, the Funds’ short positions will likely cause the Fund to underperform the overall U.S. equity market and such ETFs. The Fund may not be suitable for all investors.

AGFiQ Dynamic Hedged U.S. Equity ETF (USHG) specific risks: The Fund’s hedging strategies against declines in security prices, financial markets, exchange rates and interest rates may not be successful, and even if they are successful, the Fund’s exposure to a certain risk may not be fully hedged at all times and the Fund may still lose money on a hedged position. The risks of investing in securities of ETFs typically reflect the risks of the types of instruments in which the underlying ETF invests. To the extent the Fund invests significantly in the AGFiQ U.S. Market Neutral Anti-Beta Fund, which is also managed by the Adviser (the “Market Neutral ETF”), it will be subject to the following risks applicable to investing in the Market Neutral ETF: There is a risk that during a “bull” market, when most equity securities and long only ETFs are increasing in value, the Market Neutral ETF’s short positions will likely cause the Market Neutral ETF to underperform the overall U.S. equity market and such ETFs. These securities may be more volatile than a broad cross-section of securities, and momentum may be an indicator that a security’s price is peaking. The value of an investment in the Market Neutral ETF may fall, sometimes sharply, and you could lose money by investing in the fund. The Market Neutral ETF may utilize derivatives and as a result, the Market Neutral ETF could lose more that the amount it invests. When utilizing short selling the amount the Market Neutral ETF could lose on a short sale is potentially unlimited because there is no limit on the price a shorted security might attain.

AGFiQ Global Infrastructure ETF (GLIF) specific risks: The Fund’s investments in infrastructure-related securities will expose the Fund to potential adverse economic, regulatory, political, legal and other changes affecting such investments. Rising interest rates could lead to higher financing costs and reduced earnings for infrastructure companies. Investments in foreign securities involve risks that differ from investments in securities of U.S. issuers because of unique political, economic and market conditions. Investments in securities of issuers located in emerging market economies (including frontier market economies) are generally riskier than investments in securities of issuers from more developed economies. Investing in securities that trade in and receive revenues in foreign currencies creates risk because foreign currencies may decline relative to the U.S. dollar, resulting in a potential loss to the Fund.

Shares are not individually redeemable and can be redeemed only in Creation Units. The market price of shares can be at, below or above the NAV. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns. Market Price returns are determined based on the midpoint of the bid/ask spread calculated based on a price within the range of the highest bid and lowest offer on the principal U.S. market on which the Fund’s shares are traded during a regular trading session. Fund returns assume that dividends and capital gains distributions have been reinvested in the Fund at NAV. Some performance results reflect expense subsidies and waivers in effect during certain periods shown. Absent these waivers, results would have been less favorable.
