Before you invest, you may want to review the Fund’s Prospectus, which contains more information about the Fund and its risks. You can find the Fund’s Prospectus, reports to shareholders, and other information about the Fund online at www.alger.com. You can also get this information at no cost by calling 800-223-3810 or by sending an e-mail request to summaryprospectus@alger.com. The Fund’s Prospectus and Statement of Additional Information, both dated March 1, 2021, are incorporated by reference to this Summary Prospectus, and may be obtained at no cost in the same manner as described above.
This Exchange-Traded Fund (“ETF”) is different from traditional ETFs.
Traditional ETFs tell the public what assets they hold each day. This ETF will not. This may create additional risks for your
investment. For example:
You may have to pay more money to trade the ETF’s shares. This ETF will provide less information to traders, who tend to
charge more for trades when they have less information.
The price you pay to buy ETF shares on an exchange may not match the value of the ETF’s portfolio. The same is true
when you sell shares. These price differences may be greater for this ETF compared to other ETFs because this ETF
provides less information to traders.
These additional risks may be even greater in bad or uncertain market conditions.
The differences between this ETF and other ETFs may also have advantages. By keeping certain information about the ETF
secret, this ETF may face less risk that other traders can predict or copy its investment strategies. This may improve the
ETF’s performance. If other traders are able to copy or predict the ETF’s investment strategies, however, this may hurt the
ETF’s performance.
For additional information regarding the unique attributes and risks of this ETF, see the Share Price and Distributions section
of the ETF’s prospectus and the Non-transparent ETF Structure Risk, Trading Issues Risk, Early Close/Trading Halt Risk,
Authorized Participant/AP Representative Concentration Risk, Market Trading Risk, and Premium/Discount Risk in the
Principal Risks section of this Summary Prospectus.

Fund Fees and Expenses
This table describes the fees and expenses that you may pay if you buy, hold and sell shares of the Fund. You may pay other fees, such as brokerage commissions and other fees to financial intermediaries, which are not reflected in the tables and examples below.
Shareholder Fees
(fees paid directly from your investment)

Annual Fund Operating Expenses
(expenses that you pay each year as a percentage of the value of your investment)

Management Fees
Distribution and/or Service (12b-1) Fees*
Other Expenses**
Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses
Fee Waiver and/or Expense Reimbursement***
Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses After Fee Waiver and/or Expense Reimbursement
The Fund has adopted a Rule 12b-1 plan that allows the Fund to pay annual fees not to exceed 0.25% to the Fund’s distributor for distribution and individual shareholder services; however, the Board of Trustees has determined not to authorize payment of a 12b-1 plan fee for at least one year from the effective date of this prospectus.
“Other Expenses” are based on estimated amounts for the current fiscal year. Actual expenses may differ from estimates.
Fred Alger Management, LLC (the “Manager”) has contractually agreed to waive fees or to reimburse Fund expenses (excluding acquired fund fees and expenses, taxes, brokerage and extraordinary expenses) through April 30, 2023 to the extent necessary to limit the total annual fund operating expenses of the Fund to 0.60% of the Fund’s average daily net assets. This expense reimbursement may only be amended or terminated prior to its expiration date by agreement between the Manager and the Fund’s Board of Trustees, and will terminate automatically in the event of termination of the Investment Advisory Agreement. The Manager may, during the term of the expense limitation contract, recoup any fees waived or expenses reimbursed pursuant to the expense limitation contract to the extent that such recoupment would not cause the expense ratio to exceed the stated limitation in effect at the time of (i) the waiver or reimbursement and (ii) the recoupment by the Manager after repayment of the recoupment is taken into account.
The following example is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund with the cost of investing in other funds. The example assumes that you invest $10,000 in the Fund for the time periods indicated, that your investment has a 5% return each year and that the Fund’s operating expenses remain the same. The one-year example and the three-year example through April 30, 2023 are based on net operating expenses, which reflect the contractual expense limitation agreed to by the Manager. Although your actual costs may be higher or lower, based on these assumptions you would pay the following expenses whether or not you redeemed your shares at the end of each period:
1 Year
3 Years

Portfolio Turnover
The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or "turns over" its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual fund operating expenses or in the example, affect the Fund's performance. No portfolio turnover rate is included for the Fund because the Fund has not yet commenced operations.
Principal Investment Strategy
The Manager believes companies undergoing Positive Dynamic Change offer the best investment opportunities. Positive Dynamic Change refers to companies realizing High Unit Volume Growth or companies undergoing Positive Lifecycle Change. High Unit Volume Growth companies are traditional growth companies experiencing, for example, rapidly growing demand or market

Alger Mid Cap 40 ETF 3/6

dominance. Positive Lifecycle Change companies are, for example, companies benefitting from new regulations, a new product innovation or new management.
Under normal circumstances, the Fund invests at least 80% of its net assets in equity securities of mid-cap companies. For these purposes, “mid-cap companies” are those companies that, at the time of purchase of the securities, have total market capitalization within the range of (i) companies included in the Russell MidCap Growth Index or the S&P MidCap 400 Index, as reported by the index at the most recent quarter end, or (ii) $1 billion to $30 billion. Both indexes are designed to track the performance of medium-capitalization stocks. At December 31, 2020, the companies in the Russell MidCap Growth Index ranged from $623 million to $59.7 billion and the companies in the S&P MidCap 400 Index ranged from $1.47 billion to $22.2 billion. Because of the Fund’s long-term approach to investing, it could have a significant portion of its assets invested in securities of issuers that have appreciated beyond the market capitalization thresholds noted. Equity securities include common or preferred stocks that are listed on U.S. exchanges.
The Fund may invest a significant portion of its assets in the securities of companies conducting business in the information technology and healthcare sectors. The Fund will not invest more than 25% of its total assets in any one industry comprising the information technology and healthcare sectors.
As a focus fund, the Fund intends to invest a substantial portion of its assets in a smaller number of issuers. Generally the Fund will own approximately 40 holdings. Fund holdings may occasionally differ from this number for a variety of reasons, including, among others, because of extreme market volatility, such as when the Fund has entered a temporary defensive position.  Additionally, the Fund may temporarily exceed the stated number of holdings when it acquires a new holding and determines that it is in the best interests of shareholders to sell an existing holding over a period of time, instead of immediately selling the entire holding.
The Fund is a non-diversified and non-transparent, actively managed exchange-traded fund (“ETF”) that does not seek to replicate the performance of a specified index.
The Fund operates in reliance on an exemptive order (the “Order”) from the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), which limits the types of investments the Fund may hold to those listed in the Fund’s application for the Order. Under the terms of the Order, the Fund is permitted to invest only in exchange-traded funds, exchange-traded notes, exchange listed common stocks, exchange-traded preferred stocks, exchange-traded ADRs, exchange-traded real estate investment trusts, exchange-traded commodity pools, exchange-traded metal trusts, exchange-traded currency trusts and exchange-traded futures that trade on a U.S. exchange contemporaneously with the Fund’s shares, as well as cash and cash equivalents (which are short-term U.S. Treasury securities, government money market funds, and repurchase agreements). The Fund’s investment strategies and practices, including those listed above, are subject to these limitations.
Principal Risks
An investment in the Fund involves risks. The Fund’s share price may go down, which means you could lose money. An investment in the Fund is not a deposit of a bank and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. The following is a summary description of principal risks involved in investing in the Fund.
Non-Transparent ETF Structure Risk – Unlike traditional ETFs, the Fund does not provide daily disclosure of its portfolio holdings. Instead, the Fund provides a verified intraday indicative value (“VIIV”), calculated and disseminated every second throughout the trading day. The VIIV is intended to provide investors and other market participants with enough information to allow for an effective arbitrage mechanism that will attempt to keep the market price of the Fund at or close to the underlying net asset value (“NAV”) per share of the Fund. There is, however, a risk, which may increase during periods of market disruption or volatility, that market prices may vary significantly from the underlying NAV of the Fund. Similarly, because the Fund’s shares trade on the basis of a published VIIV, they may trade at a wider bid/ask spread than shares of ETFs that publish their portfolio holdings on a daily basis, especially during periods of market disruption or volatility, and therefore, may cost investors more to trade. Although the Fund seeks to benefit from keeping its portfolio information confidential, some market participants may attempt to use the VIIV to identify the Fund’s trading strategy, which if successful, could result in such market participants engaging in certain predatory trading practices that may have the potential to harm the Fund and its shareholders.
Trading Issues Risk - Trading in Fund shares on NYSE Arca, Inc. (the “Listing Exchange”) may be halted in certain circumstances. If at any time the securities representing 10% or more of the Fund’s portfolio become subject to a trading halt or otherwise do not have readily available market quotations, the Manager will request the Listing Exchange to halt trading of the Fund. There may be other instances that require a trading halt. Specifically, if there is a discrepancy of sufficient magnitude in the Fund’s VIIV calculation, the Manager will request the Listing Exchange to halt trading. This “circuit breaker” is designed to prevent the VIIV from reflecting outlier prices.
Early Close/Trading Halt Risk - An exchange or market may close early or issue trading halts on portfolio securities. In times of market volatility, if trading is halted in some of the securities that the Fund holds, there may be a disconnect between the market

Alger Mid Cap 40 ETF 4/6
Summary Prospectus
March 1, 2021
price of those securities and the market price of the Fund. If at any time the securities representing 10% or more of the Fund’s portfolio become subject to a trading halt or otherwise do not have readily available market quotations, the Manager will request the Listing Exchange to halt trading on the Fund, meaning that investors would not be able to trade their shares. During any such trading halt, the VIIV would continue to be calculated and disseminated. Trading halts may have a greater impact on the Fund than traditional ETFs because of its lack of transparency. Additionally, the Manager monitors the bid and ask quotations for the securities the Fund holds, and, if it determines that such a security does not have readily available market quotations (such as during an extended trading halt), it will post that fact and the name and weighting of that security in the Fund’s VIIV calculation on the Fund’s web site. This information should permit market participants to calculate the effect of that security on the VIIV calculation, determine their own fair value of the disclosed portfolio security, and better judge the accuracy of that day’s VIIV for the Fund. An extended trading halt in a portfolio security could exacerbate discrepancies between the VIIV and the Fund’s NAV.
Authorized Participant/ AP Representative Concentration Risk - The creation and redemption process for the Fund occurs through a confidential brokerage account (“Confidential Account”) with an agent, called an “AP Representative,” on behalf of authorized participants who have entered into agreements with the Fund’s distributor (“Authorized Participants”). Each day, the AP Representative will be given the names and quantities of the securities to be deposited, in the case of a creation, or redeemed, in the case of a redemption (a “Basket”), allowing the AP Representative to buy and sell positions in the portfolio securities to permit creations or redemptions on the Authorized Participant’s behalf, without disclosing the information to the Authorized Participant. The Fund may have a limited number of institutions that act as Authorized Participants and AP Representatives, none of which are obligated to engage in creation or redemption transactions. To the extent that these institutions exit the business or are unable to proceed with creation and/or redemption orders with respect to the Fund and no other Authorized Participant is able to step forward to process creation and/or redemption orders, Fund shares may trade at a discount to NAV and possibly face trading halts and/or delisting. This risk may be more pronounced in volatile markets, potentially where there are significant redemptions in ETFs generally. The fact that the Fund is offering a novel and unique structure may result in fewer entities willing to act as Authorized Participants and AP Representatives. During times of market stress, Authorized Participants may be more likely to step away from this type of ETF than a traditional ETF.
Market Trading Risk - The Fund faces numerous market trading risks, including disruptions to creations and redemptions, the existence of extreme market volatility, or potential lack of an active trading market for shares that may result in shares trading at a significant premium or discount to NAV and/or in a reduced liquidity of the Funds’ shares. During such periods, shareholders may be unable to sell their shares, or may incur significant losses when selling shares.
Premium/Discount Risk - Shares of the Fund are listed for trading on the Listing Exchange and are bought and sold in the secondary market at market prices that may differ from their most recent NAV. The market value of the Fund’s shares will fluctuate, in some cases materially, in response to changes in the Fund’s NAV, the intraday value of the Fund’s holdings, and the relative supply and demand for the Fund’s shares on the Listing Exchange. Although the Fund is intended to provide investors with enough information to allow for an effective arbitrage mechanism that will keep the market price of the Fund at or close to the Fund’s NAV, there is a risk (which may increase during periods of market disruption or volatility) that market prices for Fund shares will vary significantly from the Fund’s NAV. This risk may be greater for the Fund than for traditional ETFs that disclose their full portfolio holdings on a daily basis because the publication of the VIIV does not provide the same level of transparency as the publication of the full portfolio by a fully transparent active ETF. This could cause the Fund’s shares to have wider bid/ask spreads and larger premiums/discounts than fully transparent ETFs using the same investment strategies. During such periods, you may be unable to sell your shares or may incur significant losses if you sell your shares. There are various methods by which investors can purchase and sell shares and various types of orders that may be placed. Investors should consult their financial intermediary before purchasing or selling shares of the Fund. If a shareholder purchases shares at a time when the market price is at a premium to the NAV or sells shares at a time when the market price is at a discount to the NAV, the shareholder may sustain losses. The Fund cannot predict whether shares will trade above (premium), below (discount) or at NAV.
Investment Risk – An investment in the Fund is subject to investment risk, including the possible loss of the entire principal amount that you invest.
Market Risk – Your investment in Fund shares represents an indirect investment in the securities owned by the Fund. The value of these securities, like other investments, may move up or down, sometimes rapidly and unpredictably. Local, regional or global events such as war, acts of terrorism, the spread of infectious illness or other public health issues, recessions, or other events could have a significant impact on the Fund and its investments and could result in increased premiums or discounts to the Fund’s NAV.
An outbreak of respiratory disease caused by a novel coronavirus designated as COVID-19 was first detected in China in December 2019 and subsequently spread internationally. The transmission of COVID-19 and efforts to contain its spread have resulted in, among other things, border closings and other significant travel restrictions and disruptions; significant disruptions to business operations, supply chains and customer activity; lower consumer demand for goods and services; significant job losses and

increasing unemployment; event cancellations and restrictions; service cancellations, reductions and other changes; significant challenges in healthcare service preparation and delivery; prolonged quarantines; as well as general concern and uncertainty that has negatively affected the economic environment. The impact of this outbreak and any other epidemic or pandemic that may arise in the future could adversely affect the economies of many nations or the entire global economy and the financial performance of individual issuers, sectors, industries, asset classes, and markets in significant and unforeseen ways. Although the Federal Reserve has taken a number of actions to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on U.S. markets and institutions, including decreasing interest rates and implementing a variety of emergency stimulus measures, these actions may not succeed or have the intended effect. This crisis or other public health crises may also exacerbate other pre-existing political, social, economic, market and financial risks.  The effects of this outbreak or any future outbreak in developing or emerging market countries may be greater due to less established health care systems. The duration of the COVID-19 outbreak and its effects cannot be determined with certainty. The foregoing could result in significant market volatility, exchange trading suspensions and closures, declines in global financial markets, higher default rates and a substantial economic downturn or recession. Such impacts could impair the Fund’s ability to maintain operational standards (such as with respect to satisfying redemption requests), disrupt the operations of the Fund’s service providers, adversely affect the value and liquidity of the Fund’s investments and negatively impact the Fund’s performance and your investment in the Fund.
Mid Cap Securities Risk – There may be greater risk in investing in medium-capitalization companies rather than larger, more established companies due to such factors as inexperienced management and limited product lines or financial resources. It may also be difficult or impossible to liquidate a security position at a time and price acceptable to the Fund because of the potentially less frequent trading of stocks of smaller market capitalization.
Equity Securities Risk – As with any fund that invests in stocks, your investment will fluctuate in value, and the loss of your investment is a risk of investing. The Fund’s price per share will fluctuate due to changes in the market prices of its investments. Also, the Fund’s investments may not grow as fast as the rate of inflation and stocks tend to be more volatile than some other investments you could make, such as bonds.
Small Number of Holdings Risk Under normal circumstances, the Fund invests in a 40-stock portfolio. Therefore, the Fund’s performance may be more vulnerable to changes in the market value of a single issuer and more susceptible to risks associated with a single economic, political, or regulatory occurrence than a fund that has a higher number of holdings.
Growth Stocks Risk – Prices of growth stocks tend to be higher in relation to their companies’ earnings and may be more sensitive to market, political and economic developments than other stocks, making their prices more volatile. An investment in the Fund may be better suited to investors who seek long-term capital growth and can tolerate fluctuations in their investment’s value.
Non-Diversification Risk – The Fund is a non-diversified investment company. Therefore, the Fund’s performance may be more vulnerable to changes in the market value of a single issuer and more susceptible to risks associated with a single economic, political, or regulatory occurrence than a fund that has a diversified portfolio.
Sector Risk – The Fund may have a significant portion of its assets invested in securities of companies conducting business within a single sector. Companies in the same sector may be similarly affected by economic, regulatory, political or market events or conditions, which may make the Fund more vulnerable to unfavorable developments in that sector than a fund that has a more diversified portfolio. Generally, the more broadly the Fund invests, the more it spreads risk and potentially reduces the risks of loss and volatility.
Technology Companies Risk – The Fund may have a significant portion of its assets invested in securities of technology-related companies. Therefore, the Fund may be more susceptible to particular risks that may affect companies in the information technology sector and technology-related sectors than if it were invested in a wider variety of companies in unrelated sectors. At times, the performance of such companies will lag the performance of other industries or the broader market as a whole. Certain technology related companies may face special risks that their products or services may not prove to be commercially successful. Technology related companies are also strongly affected by worldwide scientific or technological developments. As a result, their products may rapidly become obsolete. Such companies are also often subject to governmental regulation and may, therefore, be adversely affected by governmental policies. These factors may lead to limited earnings and/or failing profit margins. As a result, the value of technology related companies’ securities may fall or fail to rise. Many technology related companies’ securities have historically been more volatile than other securities, especially over the short term.
Healthcare Companies Risk – The Fund may have a significant portion of its assets invested in securities of healthcare companies. At times, the performance of healthcare companies will lag the performance of other industries or the broader market as a whole, and the performance of such companies may be more volatile. Healthcare companies may also be significantly affected by intense competition, aggressive pricing, government regulation, technological innovations, product obsolescence, patent considerations, product compatibility and consumer preferences.

Shareholder Information
Purchasing and Redeeming Fund Shares
Individual Fund shares may only be bought and sold in the secondary market through a broker or dealer at a market price. Because ETF shares trade at market prices rather than NAV, shares may trade at a price greater than NAV (premium) or less than NAV (discount). An investor may incur costs attributable to the difference between the highest price a buyer is willing to pay to purchase shares of the Fund (bid) and the lowest price a seller is willing to accept for shares of the Fund (ask) when buying or selling shares in the secondary market (the “bid-ask spread”). Once the Fund commences operations, recent information, including information on the Fund’s NAV, market price, premiums and discounts, and bid-ask spreads, will be available on the Fund’s website at www.alger.com.
Tax Information
The Fund’s distributions may be taxable as ordinary income or capital gains. The Fund is actively managed, and as a result, investors may receive capital gains distributions annually.
Payments to Broker-Dealers and Other Financial Intermediaries
If you purchase the Fund through a broker-dealer or other financial intermediary (such as if your account is held at a bank), the Manager or the Fund’s distributor may pay the intermediary for the sale of Fund shares and related services. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing the broker-dealer or other intermediary and your financial professional to recommend the Fund over another investment. Ask your financial professional or visit your financial intermediary’s website for more information.
