GARD

Fund Description
The Reality Shares DIVCON Dividend Guard ETF seeks to reduce the impact of declining markets on Fund performance by dynamically adjusting its market exposure based on the strength of the market as determined by Reality Shares Guard Indicator, a quantitative tool that gauges market strength by comparing technical trends in market price and volatility to historical averages. When the Guard Indicator signals a strong market, the Fund invests 100% of its portfolio in the largecap U.S. companies with the highest probability of increasing their dividends within a year, based on their DIVCON dividend health scores. When the Guard Indicator signals a weak market, that long stock weight is reduced to 50%, and the remaining 50% of the portfolio is allocated to a short stock position in the large-cap U.S. companies with the highest probability of cutting their dividends within a year.
