AUGZ

TrueShares Structured Outcome (Aug) ETF

The TrueShares Structured Outcome ETF Series utilizes a “buffer protect” options strategy, that seeks to provide investors with returns (before fees and expenses) that track those of the S&P 500 Index while seeking to provide an 8-12% downside buffer (with the advisor targeting 10%) on the first of that index’s losses over a 12-month investment period.**

The AUGZ defined investment period begins on August 1, 2020 and resets exactly 12 months later. The strategy is implemented through the purchase and sale of options on the S&P 500 Price Index or an ETF that tracks the S&P 500 Price Return Index. While there is no guarantee the Fund will be successful in providing these outcomes in any period, the intent of the ETFs in the series is to provide uncapped equity market upside participation (subject to options pricing) with a measure of downside risk mitigation. ***

 

** In the event an investor purchases Shares after the date on which the options were entered into or sells Shares prior to the expiration of the options, the buffer that the Fund seeks to provide may not be available and there may be limited to no upside potential. The Fund does not provide principal protection and an investor may experience significant losses on its investment, including the loss of its entire investment. 

***Upside participation over an investment period is subject to options pricing. Due to the cost of the options used by the fund, the correlation of the fund's performance to that of the S&P 500 Price Index will be less than if the fund invested directly in the S&P 500 Price Index without using options, and could be substantially less.

Performance data quoted on this website represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed or sold in the secondary market, may be worth more or less than the original cost. Investors will incur usual and customary brokerage commissions when buying or selling shares of the exchange-traded funds (“ETFs”) in the secondary market, and that, if reflected, the brokerage commissions would reduce the performance returns. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance shown. Shares are bought and sold at market price not net asset value (“NAV”) and are not individually redeemable from the fund.
