Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. Shares of any ETF are bought and sold at market price (not NAV), may trade at a discount or premium to NAV, and are not individually redeemed by the funds. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns. Because the funds concentrate their investments in specific industries, the funds may be subject to greater risks and fluctuations than a portfolio representing a wider range of industries. The funds are undiversified, meaning they may concentrate more of their assets in fewer issuers than diversified funds. The funds invest in foreign securities which involve greater volatility and political, economic and currency risks and differences in accounting methods. These risks are greater for investments in emerging markets. The funds may invest in securities of small capitalization companies, which may be more volatile than funds that invest in larger, more established companies. The performance of the funds may differ from that of the index. Because funds may use a representative sampling strategy and may also invest in securities that are not included in the index, funds may experience tracking error to a greater extent than funds that seek to track a clue. The funds are not actively managed and may be affected by a general decline in the market segments linked to the index.

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting actions to control or slow the spread have had a significant detrimental effect on global and national economies, financial markets and industries, including shipping and the air freight. US Global Investors continues to monitor the impact of COVID-19, but it is too early to determine the full impact this virus may have on the shipping and air cargo industries. If this emerging macroeconomic risk persists for an extended period, there could be a material negative financial impact on the US Global Sea to Sky Cargo ETF.

Freight companies can be negatively affected by a downturn in economic conditions which can lead to lower demand for shipping and freight.

Investing in foreign and emerging markets involves special risks such as currency fluctuation and less public disclosure, as well as economic and political risks. By investing in a specific geographic region, such as China and/or Taiwan, the returns and share price of a regional ETF may be more volatile than those of a less concentrated portfolio.
