The RPAR Risk Parity ETF

Access risk-parity for the first time in the U.S. in a tax-efficient, liquid ETF structure.

  • The fund will diversify its allocations amongst four asset classes – equities, commodities, Treasury bonds (Treasuries), and Treasury inflation-protected securities (TIPS).
  • Holdings are structured in the efforts of each asset class presenting a similar risk and return profile.
  • Seeks to generate positive returns during periods of economic growth, preserve capital during periods of economic contraction, and preserve real rates of return during periods of heightened inflation.

The Index

The RPAR Risk Parity ETF is managed to track the Advanced Research Risk Parity Index, which is a proprietary index created by ARIS and EQM Indexes. The index is designed to target similar risk contributions from four diversifying asset classes – equities, commodities, Treasury bonds (Treasuries), and Treasury inflation-protected securities (TIPS). Returns for the index are available from Bloomberg [RPARTR]. It is not possible to invest directly in an index.

IOPV, or Indicative Optimized Portfolio Value, is a calculation disseminated by the stock exchange that approximates the Fund’s NAV every fifteen seconds throughout the trading day.

30 Day Median Spread is a calculation of Fund’s median bid-ask spread, expressed as a percentage rounded to the nearest hundredth, computed by: identifying the Fund’s national best bid and national best offer as of the end of each 10 second interval during each trading day of the last 30 calendar days; dividing the difference between each such bid and offer by the midpoint of the national best bid and national best offer; and identifying the median of those values.

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 (833) 540-0039.

Short term performance, in particular, is not a good indication of the fund’s future performance, and an investment should not be made based solely on returns. Only returns greater than 1 year will be annualized.

A fund's NAV is the sum of all its assets less any liabilities, divided by the number of shares outstanding. The market price is the most recent price at which the fund was traded.
