“If I have fifteen good, uncorrelated bets, I will reduce my risk by 80% without reducing my return, and that means I improve my return-to-risk ratio by a factor of five.”
- Ray Dalio
DGA Absolute Return ETF is designed to potentially provide you a performance edge of uncorrelated portfolio returns similar to those sought by institutional allocators.
The Fund launched in July 2023 after the conversion of a single separately managed account (the “Predecessor Account”) into shares of the Fund. The Predecessor Account commenced operations on November 26, 2018. DGA was the investment adviser for the Predecessor Account for the entire performance period shown.
The Fund’s objectives, policies, guidelines and restrictions are, in all material respects, equivalent to those of the Predecessor Account. The Predecessor Account is the only account managed by the DGA with an investment objective and investment policies and restrictions substantially similar to those of the Fund, and the Predecessor Account was managed in substantially the same way as DGA will manage the Fund. The returns for the Predecessor Account reflect its performance prior to the conversion into the Fund. The Predecessor Account was not registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940 Act (the “1940 Act”) and therefore was not subject to certain restrictions imposed by the 1940 Act on registered investment companies and by the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 on regulated investment companies. If the Predecessor Account had been registered under the 1940 Act, the Predecessor Account’s performance may have been adversely affected. Past performance before and after taxes does not necessarily indicate how the Fund will perform in the future. The performance of the Predecessor Account was calculated using time-weighted total return net of all charges, expenses, and fees.

Investment Objective: The DGA Absolute Return ETF seeks long-term capital appreciation as a primary objective, with capital preservation as a secondary objective.
Investments involve risk. Principal loss is possible. New Fund Risk. The Fund is a recently organized management investment company with no operating history. As a result, prospective investors do not have a track record or history on which to base their investment decision. Shares May Trade at Prices Other Than NAV. As with all ETFs, Shares may be bought and sold in the secondary market at market prices. Although it is expected that the market price of Shares will approximate the Fund’s NAV, there may be times when the market price of Shares is more than the NAV intra-day (premium) or less than the NAV intra-day (discount) due to supply and demand of Shares or during periods of market volatility. Cybersecurity Risk. With the increased use of technologies such as the Internet to conduct business, the Fund is susceptible to operational, information security, and related risks. Equity Market Risk. The equity securities in which the Fund invests may experience sudden, unpredictable drops in value or long periods of decline in value. Political Criteria Risk. Because the Sub-Adviser evaluates the political activity of the companies in the Fund’s investment universe as part of its portfolio management process, it may forego some market opportunities available to other funds that do not consider political factors.
Tidal Financial Group (Tidal) serves as the Investment Adviser for the Fund.
Days Global Advisors (DGA) serves as the Sub-Adviser to the Fund.
The Fund is distributed by Foreside Fund Services, LLC. Foreside, Tidal, and DGA are not related.
*Access a strategy once reserved for private wealth management and institutional investors. This statement refers to the availability of a financial strategy that was previously only accessible to high net worth individuals and institutional investors. The strategy may now be available to a broader range of investors. Still, it is important to note that past performance is not indicative of future results, and any investment decisions should be made after careful consideration of one’s individual financial circumstances and objectives.
Underlying ETFs Risks. The Fund will incur higher and duplicative expenses because it invests in Underlying ETFs. There is also the risk that the Fund may suffer losses due to the investment practices of the Underlying ETFs. The Fund will be subject to substantially the same risks as those associated with the direct ownership of securities held by the Underlying ETFs. In addition, the Underlying ETFs held by the Fund may utilize leverage (i.e., borrowing) to acquire their underlying portfolio investments. The use of leverage may exaggerate changes in an Underlying ETF’s share price and the return on its investments. Accordingly, the value of the Fund’s investments in Underlying ETFs may be more volatile and all other risks, including the risk of loss of an investment, tend to be compounded or magnified.
Models and Data Risk. The composition of the Fund’s portfolio is heavily dependent on proprietary investment models as well as information and data supplied by third parties (“Models and Data”). When Models and Data prove to be incorrect or incomplete, any decisions made in reliance thereon may lead to the inclusion or exclusion of securities from the Fund’s portfolio that would have been excluded or included had the Models and Data been correct and complete.
Commodity ETF Risk. Commodity ETFs are generally not registered as investment companies for purposes of U.S. federal securities laws, and are not subject to regulation by the SEC as investment companies, although some commodity ETFs may be registered investment companies. Consequently, the owners of a non-investment company commodity ETF do not have the regulatory protections provided to investors in investment companies.
Fixed Income Securities Risk. The Fund may invest in Underlying ETFs that invest in fixed income securities. The prices of fixed income securities may be affected by changes in interest rates, the creditworthiness and financial strength of the issuer and other factors. The increase in prevailing interest rates typically causes the value of existing fixed income securities to fall and often has a greater impact in longer-duration and/or higher quality fixed income securities.
Foreign Securities Risk. Foreign securities held by Underlying ETFs in which the Fund invests involve certain risks not involved in domestic investments and may experience more rapid and extreme changes in value than investments in securities of U.S. companies.
