AAM Low Duration Preferred & Income Securities ETF (NYSE:PFLD)

PFLD Description

The AAM Low Duration Preferred & Income Securities ETF (NYSE:PFLD) seeks to track the investment results of an index composed of shorter duration exchange-listed U.S. dollar denominated hybrid debt and preferred stock publicly issued by corporations in the U.S. domestic market.

The PFLD Advantage

  1. Provide high monthly income: PFLD targets preferred securities which have historically offered higher yields than similarly rated bonds thus providing a solution to diversify income streams. Preferred securities may also pay qualified dividends which are taxed at a lower rate than ordinary income.

  2. Reduce interest rate risk: PFLD targets preferred securities with an option-adjusted duration less than five years in an effort to reduce interest rate risk.

  3. Diversify your portfolio: PFLD targets hybrid securities that have exhibited lower correlations to traditional stock and bond strategies, offering a way to diversify investments and potentially mitigate volatility.

Any tax or legal information provided is a summary of our understanding and interpretation of some of the current income tax regulations and is not exhaustive. Investors must consult their tax advisor or legal counsel for advice and information concerning their particular situation. Neither the Fund nor any of its representatives may give legal or tax advice.

The fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses must be considered carefully before investing. The statutory and summary prospectus contains this and other important information about the investment company, and it may be obtained by calling 800.617.0004 or visiting www.aamlive.com. Read it carefully before investing.

Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. Shares of any ETF are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and may trade at a discount or premium to NAV. Shares are not individually redeemable from the Fund and may be only be acquired or redeemed from the fund in creation units. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns. Companies with high yield or payout ratio may underperform other securities in certain market conditions and reduce or discontinue paying dividends entirely while included in the index. The Fund’s return may not match or achieve a high degree of correlation with the return of the underlying Index. To the extent the Fund utilizes a sampling approach, it may experience tracking error to a greater extent than if the Fund had sought to replicate the Index. Diversification does not assure a profit or protect against a loss in a declining market.

The value of a company’s preferred stock will react more strongly than bonds and other debt to actual or perceived changes in the company’s financial condition Preferred stock is subject to the risks that a company may defer or not pay dividends, and, in certain situations, may call or redeem its preferred stock or convert it to common stock. During periods of falling interest rates, an issuer of a callable security held by the Fund may “call” or repay the security before its stated maturity, and the Fund may have to reinvest the proceeds at lower interest rates. Investments in small and mid-cap companies may involve less liquidity and greater volatility than larger companies.

Diversification does not assure a profit or protect against a loss in a declining market. Holdings and allocations are subject to change at any time.

Past performance does not guarantee future results.
