Armor Index ETFs use a quantitative, systematic approach to provide exposure to various global markets through the creation of indices that look to provide downside protection and lower volatility which we believe can lead to better long-term investment results.
The Armor US Equity Index ETF (ARMR) seeks to provide investment returns that, before fees and expenses, correspond generally to the total return performance of the Armor US Equity Index.
The index is designed to provide exposure to the sectors of the US equity market that the fund’s index provider believes are most likely to generate positive returns while aiming to provide downside protection and lower volatility.
Individual sectors of the US equity market are evaluated utilizing a proprietary, rules-based market performance indicator (MPI) to select sectors which may offer strong, long-term performance potential with lower expected downside risk and volatility. Only sectors which score well based on the MPI are included in the index. If no sectors appear attractive based on this metric, the index will invest primarily in US Treasury obligations.
ARMR rebalances monthly to ensure current market, economic, and financial conditions are incorporated into the construction of the portfolio.
ARMR uses low-cost ETFs to execute its strategy to ensure sufficient liquidity and flexibility to quickly execute its strategy.

An ETF may invest a significant portion of its assets in one or more sectors and thus will be more susceptible to the risks affecting those sectors. In addition, while the Fund’s sector exposure is expected to vary over time based on the composition of the Index, the Fund anticipates that, from time to time, it may be subject to some or all of the risks described below.
Shares are bought and sold at market price (closing price) not net asset value (NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Market price returns are based on the midpoint of the bid/ask spread at 4:00pm Eastern Time (when NAV is normally determined) and do not represent the return you would receive if you traded at other times.
