The Bloomberg Barclays Floating Rate Note < 5 Years Total Return Index measures the performance of USD denominated, investment grade, floating-rate notes across corporate and government-related sectors. It is not possible to invest in an index.

The performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when sold or redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost and current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Performance current to the most recent month-end can be obtained by calling 323-925-3305. Market price returns are based on the midpoint of the bid/ask spread at 4:00 PM Eastern time (when NAV is normally determined) and do not represent the return you would receive if you traded at other times.

Investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible. Shares of any ETF are bought and sold at market price (not NAV), may trade at a discount or premium to NAV, and are not individually redeemed from the funds. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns.

The Fund is also subject to the following risks: Collateralized Loan Obligations (CLOs) are generally backed by a pool of credit-related assets that serve as collateral. Accordingly, CLO securities present risks similar to those of other types of credit investments, including default (credit), interest rate and prepayment risks. In addition, CLOs are often governed by a complex series of legal documents and contracts, which increases the risk of dispute over the interpretation and enforceability of such documents relative to other types of investments. An increase in interest rates may cause the value of fixed-income securities held by the Fund to decline. The Fund may be subject to a greater risk of rising interest rates due to the current period of historically low rates and the effect of potential government fiscal policy initiatives and resulting market reaction to those initiatives. The Fund’sincome may decline if interest rates fall.

The Fund is a recently organized, diversified management investment company with no operating history. Additionally, the investment adviser has not previously managed a registered fund, which may increase the risks of investing in the Fund.

Credit ratings are provided by a nationally recognized statistical rating organization (NRSRO). Ratings are grades given to bonds that indicate their credit quality as determined by private independent rating services such as Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s and Fitch. These firms evaluate a bond issuer’s financial strength, or its ability to pay a bond’s principal and interest in a timely fashion. Ratings are expressed as letters ranging from ‘AAA’, which is the highest grade, to ‘D’, which is the lowest grade.

Effective Duration is a statistic provides a measure of the sensitivity of the Fund's price to changes in interest rates and is calculated as the weighted average of the individual bond effective durations. Effective duration recognizes that changes in interest rates may also change the expected cash flows generated by any underlying bonds with embedded options. The calculation is expanded to incorporate the contribution of derivatives to the overall interest rate risk sensitivity to the portfolio.

Coupons refers to a bond’s coupon which is the annual interest rate paid on the issuer’s borrowed money, generally paid out semi-annually on individual bonds. The coupon is always tied to a bond’s face or par value and is quoted as a percentage of par.

Fixed rate notes or fixed interest rate debt securities are securities for which at the date of issue (a) the contractual nominal coupon payments are fixed and constant in terms of the currency of denomination for the life of the debt security, or for a certain number of years, and (b) the principal repayment is fixed in terms of the currency of denomination and time. Fixed interest rate debt securities include securities issued at par (value) or at a discount or premium, deep discounted and zero coupon bonds, strips, perpetuals, convertible and exchangeable bonds, subordinated bonds, equity warrants, and others as far as the definition is met.

Floating rate notes or variable interest rate debt securities have their coupon or principal payments (or both) linked to a general price index for goods and services (such as the consumer price index (CPI)), to a benchmark interest rate (such as the London interbank offered rate (LIBOR) or a bond yield), or to an asset price (such as gold). The reference value fluctuates in response to market conditions.

A Preliminary NAIC Designation is an opinion of the NAIC Securities Valuation Office (SVO) of the probable credit quality designation that would be assigned by the SVO to an investment if purchased by an insurance company and reported to the SVO. A Preliminary NAIC Designation is only one of the regulatory factors considered by the SVO as part of its analysis of probable regulatory treatment under the Regulatory Treatment Analysis Service (RTAS). A full discussion of such other regulatory factors is set forth in the RTAS Letter provided to Alternative Access Funds, LLC. A Preliminary NAIC Designation cannot be used to report the ETF to state insurance regulators. However, the purchasing insurance company may obtain an NAIC Designation for the ETF by filing the security and final documents for the ETF with the SVO.

NAIC Designations may be notched up or down to reflect the position of a specific liability in the issuer’s capital structure and/or the existence of other non-payment risk in the specific security. Under NAIC reporting rules, shares of an ETF are presumed to be reportable as common stock. The SVO may classify an ETF as a bond or preferred stock and assign it an NAIC Designation if it meets defined criteria. For a discussion of these criteria please call the SVO or refer to the Purposes and Procedures Manual of the NAIC Investment Analysis Office.
