Short term performance, in particular, is not a good indication for the fund’s future performance and an investment should not be made based solely on returns. The performance data quoted 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 sold or redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be higher or lower than the performance quoted. For performance data current to the most recent month end, please call 215.882.9983 or visitwww.MerlynETFs.com

ETF.com Award winners are selected in a three-part process designed to leverage the insights and opinions of leaders throughout the ETF industry.
Step 1 The awards process begins with open nominations, which ran from Dec. 4, 2019, to Jan. 4, 2020. Self-nominations are accepted. Nominators may nominate in as many categories as they like.
Step 2 Following the open nominations process, the ETF.com Awards Nominating Committee—made up of ETF.com editorial staff—reviews nominations. Nominations are screened for eligibility (appropriate timing and category). If more than five unique entries are received in the nominations process, the members of the Nominating Committee will force-rank their top five, resulting in a final slate for each category. Votes will be resolved on a majority basis, and ties broken where possible with head-to-head runoff votes. If ties cannot be broken, more than five finalists are allowed. The Nomination Committee will complete its work by Jan. 10, 2020. Shortly thereafter, the nominees will be published on ETF.com.
Step 3 Winners among these finalists will be selected by a majority vote of the ETF.com Awards Selection Committee, a group of independent ETF experts from across the ETF community. Committee members will recuse themselves from voting in any category in which they or their firms appear as finalists. Ties will be decided where possible with head-to-head runoff votes. Voting will be complete by Jan. 31, 2019, but results will be kept confidential until they are announced in March, and published in the April ETF Report.
