QTUM

Fund Description
The Defiance Quantum ETF (the Fund ) seeks to track the total return performance, before fees and expenses, of the BlueStar Quantum Computing and Machine Learning Index (the Index ). The Index consists of a modified equal-weighted portfolio of the stock of companies whose products or services are predominantly tied to the development of quantum computing and machine learning technology. Quantum computing refers to hardware and software designed to take advantage of extremely fast computers that leverage the field of quantum mechanics, a branch of physics dealing with particles and the complexities in which they naturally behave. Such technologies include research and development of quantum computers; use of quantum computing for applied sciences or communications; development of technology-enabled interactions between quantum and traditional computers; development of advanced hardware and/or software used in machine learning; production of specialized machinery used in advanced semiconductor and integrated circuit packaging; or the production and/or processing of raw materials used in quantum computing. The companies included in the Index are screened semi-annually from the universe of globally-listed stocks (including in emerging markets) by BlueStar Global Investors, LLC ( BlueStar or Index Provider ) based primarily on descriptions of a company s primary business activities in regulatory filings (e.g., financial statements, annual reports, investor presentations), analyst reports, and industry-specific trade publications. Companies identified by BlueStar s screening process are then screened for investibility, including a minimum market capitalization of US$150 million and minimum liquidity thresholds.
