HDGE

Fund Description
The investment objective of the Active Bear ETF (HDGE) is capital appreciation through short sales of domestically traded equity securities. The HDGE portfolio is sub-advised by Ranger Alternative Management L.P. The portfolio management team implements a bottom-up fundamental research driven security selection process. In selecting short positions the Fund seeks to identify securities with low earnings quality or aggressive accounting which may be intended on the part of company management to mask operational deterioration and bolster the reported earnings per share over a short time period. In addition the portfolio management team seeks to identify earnings driven events that may act as a catalyst to the price decline of a security such as downwards earnings revisions or reduced forward guidance.
