Important specifications
Investors should carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, fees and costs of an exchange traded fund (ETF) before investing. A prospectus containing this and other information is available at or by calling 1-877-398-8461. Please read the prospectus carefully before investing.

There are RISKS associated with investing in ETFs, including losing money. Additional information on the RISKS of this investment is included in the disclosure.

The Alerian MLP ETF shares cannot be redeemed individually. Investors buy and sell shares in the Alerian MLP ETF on a secondary market. Only Market Makers or “Authorized Participants” are permitted to deal directly in the Fund, typically in blocks of 25,000 Shares.

The fund is taxed as a regular corporation for federal income tax purposes. This is different from most investment companies, which are treated as “regulated investment companies” under the Code and do not pay corporate income taxes.

If, due to changes in tax law, a Master Limited Partnership (“MLP”) is viewed in the portfolio as a corporation rather than a partnership for purposes of federal income, the income at MLP level is subject to federal taxation. This would reduce the amount of cash available for distribution to the Fund, which could depreciate the value of the Fund.

In addition, the fund offers tax accounts such as IRA and 401 (k) plans a new option for participating in the MLP asset class for energy infrastructure without concerns about non-company taxable income. Investors do not get a K-1 as they would if they invested directly in MLPs.

All K-1 are received and processed by the Alerian MLP ETF. The Alerian MLP ETF distributes a single Form 1099 to its shareholders.
