The Green New Deal and ESG movement are being pushed on American companies, and their actions in response are negative for shareholders. Large firms like JPMorgan and Goldman Sachs are refusing to loan to energy companies wanting to drill in Alaska. This action and others done to appease ESG groups could result in shareholder lawsuits. I spoke about it on CNBC.
Holdings disclosure: GS has a weighting of 0.64% in the MAGA ETF as of 2/29/20. JPM is not a holding in the ETF.
Carefully consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risk factors, charges, and expenses before investing. This and additional information can be found in the Fund’s prospectus. Read the prospectus carefully before investing.
Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. Mid-capitalization companies may be more vulnerable to adverse business or economic events than larger, more established companies. The Fund is non-diversified, which means that it may invest more of its assets in the securities of a single issuer or a smaller number of issuers than if it were a diversified fund. As a result, the Fund may be more exposed to the risks associated with and developments affecting an individual issuer or a smaller number of issuers than a fund that invests more widely. This may increase the Fund’s volatility and cause the performance of a relatively smaller number of issuers to have a greater impact on the Fund’s performance. Index composition is heavily dependent on quantitative models and data supplied by third parties. Where such models and data are incorrect or incomplete, the composition of the Index will reflect such errors and likewise the Fund’s portfolio. Because the methodology of the Index selects securities of issuers for non-financial reasons, the Fund may underperform the broader equity market or other funds that do not utilize similar criteria when selecting investments. The Fund is not actively managed and therefore would not sell shares of an equity security unless that security is removed from the Index or the selling of shares is otherwise required upon a rebalancing of the Index. Real Estate investments are subject to changes in economic conditions, credit risk, and interest rate fluctuations.
Shares are bought and sold at market price (closing price), not net asset value (NAV), and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Market performance is determined using the bid/ask midpoint at 4:00 pm ET when NAV is typically calculated. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns.
