Yields as of Mar 28, 2024

30 day SEC Yield (subsidized)*

Distribution Yield**

Distribution Frequency

* 30-Day SEC Yield: A standardized yield computed by dividing the net investment income per share earned during the past 30-day period by the share price at the end of the period, expressed as an annual percentage rate. Subsidized yields reflect fee waivers in effect. Without such waivers, yields would be reduced. Unsubsidized yields do not reflect fee waivers in effect. The SEC yield does not include prepayment income, which could be a significant contribution to yield.

** Distribution Yield: The annual yield an investor would receive if the most recent fund distribution remained the same going forward. The yield represents a single distribution from the fund and does not represent total return of the fund. The distribution yield is calculated by annualizing the most recent distribution and dividing by the most recent fund NAV.

The following table and line graph are provided to show the frequency at which the closing price of the Fund was at a premium (above) or discount (below) to the Fund's daily net asset value ("NAV").

ETFs are subject to additional risks that do not apply to conventional mutual funds, including the risks that the market price of an ETF's shares may trade at a premium or discount to its net asset value, an active secondary trading market may not develop or be maintained, or trading may be halted by the exchange in which they trade, which may impact an ETF's ability to sell its shares. Shares of any ETF are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the ETF. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns. Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal and fluctuation of value. There is no assurance the stated objective(s) will be met. Optimized weightings and diversification do not promise any level of performance or guarantee against loss of principal. The Fund's investment in debt securities typically decrease when interest rates rise. This risk is greater for longer-term securities. Investment by the Fund in lower-rated and non-rated securities presents a greater risk of loss to principal and interest than higher-rated securities. The Fund will invest in foreign securities which involve political, economic, and currency risk, difference in accounting methods and greater volatility. The Fund is not actively managed and invests in the securities included in, or representative of, its index regardless of their investment merit.

The Arch Indices VOI Absolute Income ETF is distributed by Quasar Distributors, LLC.
