Investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible.

The Defiance Next Gen Connectivity ETF is the first ETF to emphasize securities whose products and services are predominantly tied to the development of 5G networking and communication technologies. The fund does this by tracking The BlueStar 5G Communications Index. The Fund attempts to invest all, or substantially all, of its assets in the component securities that make up the Index.

The possible applications of quantum computing, augmented and virtual reality and 5G technologies are only in the exploration stages, and the possible returns are uncertain and may not be realized in the near future.

Defiance ETFs, LLC is the adviser to the Defiance ETFs. The Defiance ETFs are distributed by Quasar Distributors, LLC.
