MINNESOTA MUNICIPAL BOND ETF (MINN)

est. 2021


MAIRS & POWER MINNESOTA MUNICIPAL BOND ETF (unaudited)

To Our Shareholders:

The Mairs & Power Minnesota Municipal Bond ETF (the "Fund") delivered a total return of 1.29% (NAV) and 1.32% (Market Price) since inception on March 11, 2021. During the same period, the Bloomberg Minnesota Municipal Total Return (TR) Index (the "Index"), the Fund's benchmark, had a total return of 1.06%.

Since launch on March 11, the Fund has become fully invested as inflows of cash have been prudently put to work. Over one-third of money invested was put to work in the new issue market, directly funding Minnesota issuers.

The municipal bond market saw record issuance in 2021 with over $460 billion in issuance across the country. Several strategists are calling for another record year in 2022, with some estimates of over a 10% increase in issuance from 2021. Demand for higher yielding debt saw high yield municipal bonds handily outperform higher quality bonds, with spreads compressing meaningfully over the course of the year, while some high yield focused funds closed to new investors due to a demand/supply mismatch. Minnesota specific issuance was a different story as the exempt Minnesota issuance (the Fund's focus) was down 18% from the prior year to just under $5 billion. In fact, 2021 represented the second lowest Minnesota exempt issuance in the past decade. We are hopeful that 2022 will bring about renewed issuance and opportunity as projects go forward and investment picks up coming out of COVID.

The biggest news to come out of the Minnesota Capitol lately was the $7.7 billion projected surplus for fiscal years 2022-2023, a result of what we believe to be the ongoing strength of Minnesota's economy. Unemployment remains lower than the country, although the labor force in the state is still about 84,000 people lower than when the pandemic began. The Fund has invested roughly 2/3 in state and local general obligation bonds, where credit quality is largely driven by the state level finances that then trickle down. Moody's had already raised the outlook for the state to positive, which means the state could become one of the states with three AAA ratings from each of the credit agencies.

New issuance since launch has been relatively in-line with historical standards, but there is substantial demand for tax exempt paper as seen through fund flows in municipal bond funds. The supply is not satiating demand, and issuers have been able to use coupon structures that would be disadvantageous in a rising rate environment. We have tended to avoid these coupon structures, instead preferring to invest in higher coupon bonds, while less than 20% of the Fund is invested in bonds with a coupon lower than 3%.

Our average maturity is slightly short to the Index, while the duration to worst is long of the Index as we are investing where we find opportunities at reasonable prices.

Given a relative lack of lower quality deals and the state of the high yield municipal market with the lowest yields on record, we have found fewer areas to invest in lower rated paper. Lower rated municipals have seen spreads tighten meaningfully over the course of the year as investors chase yield – the Fund does not attempt to chase yield but seeks quality credits first. We will be highly selective in the lower than A-rated space, where we only have three exposures currently. The exposure to this space will continue to be low, while the majority of the Fund will focus on high quality.

Lastly, we want to highlight the geographic diversity of the Fund across the state. Outside of statewide bonds, the Fund is well diversified outside of the metro area, with about 40% of non-state holdings outside the metro area. While the Fund's focus is solely on investing in bonds in the state of Minnesota, we see it as important to be invested across the entire state.

Risks: Investments involve risk. The Fund is designed for long-term investors. Principal loss is possible.

Mairs & Power Minnesota Municipal Bond ETF has the same risks as the underlying securities traded on the exchange throughout the day. Redemptions are limited and often commissions are charged on every trade.

The Fund may trade at a premium or discount to NAV. Shareholders may pay more than NAV when they buy Fund shares and receive less than NAV when they sell those shares, because shares are bought and sold at current market prices. The data presented represents past performance and cannot be used to predict future results.

Investments in debt securities typically decrease in value when interest rates rise. This risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities. Investment by the Fund in lower-rated and non-rated securities presents a greater risk of loss to principal and interest than higher-rated securities. Because the Fund invests substantially in Minnesota municipal instruments, it is more exposed to the impact of negative political, economic, and legislative factors within Minnesota than a fund that invests more widely.

Because the Fund is "non-diversified," it may invest a greater percentage of its assets in the securities of a single issuer or a smaller number of issuers than if it were a diversified fund. The Fund is also subject to risks associated with investments in the municipal bond market, municipal mortgage-backed securities, and other investment companies. The Fund is a recently organized management investment company with limited operating history. As a result, prospective investors have a limited track record on which to base their investment decision. There is also a risk that the Fund will not grow to or maintain an economically viable size, in which case it could ultimately liquidate without shareholder approval.

Some of the Fund's investments may be subject to federal alternative minimum tax. Although the Fund is exempt from federal tax, you may owe taxes on any capital gain resulting from the Fund's trading or through your own redemption of shares. For some investors, a portion of the Fund's income may be subject to state and local taxes.

Bloomberg Minnesota Municipal TR Index is a market capitalization-weighted index of Minnesota Investment-grade bonds with maturities of one year or more. It is not possible to invest directly in an index.

Mairs & Power uses the lower of the S&P or Moody's ratings and chooses to display credit ratings using S&P's rating convention, although the rating itself might be sourced from another Nationally Recognized Statistical Rating Agency. The ratings apply to the credit worthiness of the issuers of the underlying securities and not to the Fund itself. Ratings are expressed as letters ranging from 'AAA', which is the highest grade, to 'D', which is the lowest grade. In limited situations when the rating agency has not issued a formal rating, the rating agency will classify the security as unrated.

Foreside Fund Services, LLC is the Distributor for the Mairs & Power Minnesota Municipal Bond ETF.

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS  December 31, 2021

Note 1 – Organization

Trust for Professional Managers (the "Trust") was organized as a Delaware statutory trust under a Declaration of Trust dated May 29, 2001. The Trust is registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the "1940 Act"), as an open-end, management investment company. The Mairs & Power Minnesota Municipal Bond ETF (the "Fund") represents a distinct series with its own investment objective and policies within the Trust. The Fund is an actively-managed exchange-traded fund ("ETF"). The investment objective of the Fund is to seek current income that is exempt from federal and Minnesota state income tax consistent with the preservation of capital. The Trust may issue an unlimited number of shares of beneficial interest at $0.001 par value. The assets of the Fund are segregated, and a shareholder's interest is limited to the fund in which shares are held. The Fund commenced operations on March 11, 2021. Costs incurred by the Fund in connection with the organization and the initial public offering of shares were paid by Mairs & Power, Inc. (the "Adviser"), the Fund's investment adviser.

The Fund is an investment company and accordingly follows the investment company accounting and reporting guidance of the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") Topic 946 "Financial Services – Investment Companies".

Note 2 – Significant Accounting Policies

The following is a summary of significant accounting policies consistently followed by the Fund in the preparation of the financial statements. These policies are in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America ("GAAP").

Investment Valuation

Each equity security owned by the Fund that is listed on a securities exchange, except for securities listed on the NASDAQ Stock Market LLC ("NASDAQ"), is valued at its last sale price on the exchange on the date as of which assets are valued. When the security is listed on more than one exchange, the Fund will use the price of the exchange that the Fund generally considers to be the principal exchange on which the stock is traded. Fund securities listed on NASDAQ will be valued at the NASDAQ Official Closing Price ("NOCP"), which may not necessarily represent the last sale price. If the NOCP is not available, such securities shall be valued at the last sale price on the day of valuation. If there has been no sale on such exchange or on NASDAQ on such day, the security is valued at (i) the mean between the most recent quoted bid and asked prices at the close of the exchange on such day or (ii) the latest sales price on the Composite Market for the day such security is being valued. "Composite Market" means a consolidation of the trade information provided by national securities and foreign exchanges and over-the- counter markets as published by an approved independent pricing service (a "Pricing Service").

Debt securities, such as U.S. government securities, corporate securities, municipal securities and asset-backed and mortgage-backed securities, including short-term debt instruments having a maturity of 60 days or less, are valued at the mean in accordance with prices supplied by a Pricing Service. Pricing Services may use various valuation methodologies such as the mean between the bid and the asked prices, matrix pricing and other analytical pricing models as well as market transactions and dealer quotations. If a price is not available from a Pricing Service, the most recent quotation obtained from one or more broker-dealers known to follow the issue will be obtained. Quotations will be valued at the mean between the bid and the offer. In the absence of available quotations, the securities will be priced at fair value. Any discount or premium is accreted or amortized over the expected life of the respective security using the constant yield to maturity method. Pricing Services generally value debt securities assuming orderly transactions of an institutional round lot size, but such securities may be held or transactions may be conducted in such securities in smaller, odd lot sizes. Odd lots often trade at lower prices than institutional round lots.

Money market funds, demand notes and repurchase agreements are valued at cost. If cost does not represent current market value the securities will be priced at fair value.


11


NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (continued)  December 31, 2021

Note 2 – Significant Accounting Policies (continued)

Investment Valuation (continued)

Redeemable securities issued by open-end, registered investment companies are valued at the net asset values ("NAVs") of such companies for purchase and/or redemption orders placed on that day. If, on a particular day, a share of an investment company is not listed on NASDAQ, such security's fair value will be determined.

When market quotations are not readily available, any security or other asset is valued at its fair value as determined under procedures approved by the Trust's Board of Trustees. These fair value procedures will also be used to price a security when corporate events, events in the securities market or world events cause the Adviser to believe that a security's last sale price may not reflect its actual fair market value. The intended effect of using fair value pricing procedures is to ensure that the Fund is accurately priced. The Board of Trustees will regularly evaluate whether the Fund's fair value pricing procedures continue to be appropriate in light of the specific circumstances of the Fund and the quality of prices obtained through their application by the Trust's valuation committee.

FASB Accounting Standards Codification, "Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures" Topic 820 ("ASC 820"), establishes an authoritative definition of fair value and sets out a hierarchy for measuring fair value. ASC 820 requires an entity to evaluate certain factors to determine whether there has been a significant decrease in volume and level of activity for the security such that recent transactions and quoted prices may not be determinative of fair value and further analysis and adjustment may be necessary to estimate fair value. ASC 820 also requires enhanced disclosure regarding the inputs and valuation techniques used to measure fair value in those instances as well as expanded disclosure of valuation levels for each class of investments. These inputs are summarized in the three broad levels listed below:

•  Level 1 – Quoted prices in active markets for identical securities.

•  Level 2 – Other significant observable inputs (including quoted prices for similar securities, interest rates, prepayment speeds, credit risk, etc.).

•  Level 3 – Significant unobservable inputs (including the Fund's own assumptions in determining the fair value of investments).

The inputs or methodology used for valuing securities are not necessarily an indication of the risk associated with investing in those securities. The following is a summary of the inputs used to value the Fund's investments carried at fair value as of December 31, 2021:

Level 1

 

$

18,377

   

Level 2

   

18,418,748

   

Level 3

Total

 

$

18,437,125

   

The Fund did not hold any Level 3 securities during the period ended December 31, 2021.

The Fund did not hold any financial derivative instruments during the period ended December 31, 2021.

Federal Income Taxes

The Fund intends to comply with the requirements of Subchapter M of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (the "Code"), as amended, necessary to qualify as a regulated investment company and to make the requisite distributions of income and capital gains to its shareholders sufficient to relieve it from all or substantially all federal income taxes. Therefore, no federal income tax provision has been provided.

The Fund's federal income tax returns are subject to examination by the Internal Revenue Service (the "IRS") for a period of three fiscal years after they are filed. State and local tax returns may be subject to examination for an additional fiscal year depending on the jurisdiction. As of and during the period ended December 31, 2021, the Fund did not have a liability for any unrecognized tax benefits.


12


NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (continued)  December 31, 2021

Note 2 – Significant Accounting Policies (continued)

Federal Income Taxes (continued)

The Fund recognizes interest and penalties, if any, related to uncertain tax benefits as income tax expense in the Statement of Operations. During the period, the Fund did not incur any interest or penalties.

Distributions to Shareholders

The Fund will distribute any net investment income monthly. The Fund will distribute any net realized long- or short-term capital gains, if any, at least annually. Distributions from net realized gains for book purposes may include short-term capital gains. All short-term capital gains are included in ordinary income for tax purposes.

Distributions to shareholders are recorded on the ex-dividend date. The Fund may also pay a special distribution at the end of the calendar year to comply with federal tax requirements. Income and capital gain distributions may differ from GAAP, primarily due to timing differences in the recognition of income, gains and losses by the Fund. To the extent that these differences are attributable to permanent book and tax accounting differences, the components of net assets have been adjusted.

The Fund intends to make distributions that are exempt from federal and Minnesota state income tax, in the form of exempt-interest dividends. However, some of the Fund's distributions other than exempt-interest dividends may be taxed as ordinary income or capital gains (or a combination). The Fund may invest a portion of its assets in securities that generate income that is not exempt from federal income tax or Minnesota state income tax. Income exempt from federal income tax may be subject to state and local income tax. The federal income tax status of all distributions made by the Fund for the preceding year will be reported annually to shareholders.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Share Transactions

The NAV per share of the Fund is calculated by dividing the sum of the value of the securities held by the Fund, plus cash or other assets, minus all liabilities (including estimated accrued expenses) divided by the total number of shares outstanding for the Fund, rounded to the nearest cent. The Fund's shares will not be priced on the days on which the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") is closed for trading.

Expenses

Expenses associated with a specific fund in the Trust are charged to that fund. Common expenses are typically allocated evenly between the series of the Trust, or by other equitable means.

Other

Investment transactions are recorded on the trade date. The Fund determines the gain or loss from investment transactions on the identified cost basis by comparing the cost of the security lot sold with the net sales proceeds. Any discount or premium on securities purchased are accreted or amortized over the expected life of the respective securities using the constant yield method. Dividend income, less foreign withholding tax, is recognized on the ex-dividend date and interest income is recognized on an accrual basis. Withholding taxes on foreign dividends and interest, net of any reclaims, have been provided for in accordance with the Fund's understanding of the applicable country's tax rules and rates.

At November 30, 2021, the Fund had short-term capital losses of $362, which will be carried forward indefinitely to offset future realized capital gains. To the extent the Fund realizes future net capital gains, taxable distributions to its shareholders will be first offset by any unused capital loss carryovers from the period ended November 30, 2021.

The tax character of distributions paid during the period ended November 30, 2021 was as follows:

Period ended November 30, 2021

$

71,650

   

GAAP requires that certain components of net assets relating to permanent differences be reclassified between financial and tax reporting. These reclassifications have no effect on net assets or NAV per share. For the period ended November 30, 2021, no such reclassifications were required.

Note 4 – Investment Adviser

The Trust has an Investment Advisory Agreement (the "Agreement") with the Adviser to furnish investment advisory services to the Fund. Under the terms of the Agreement between the Trust, on behalf of the Fund, and the Adviser, the Fund pays a unified management fee to the Adviser, which is calculated daily and paid monthly, at an annual rate of 0.39% of the Fund's average daily net assets. The Adviser has agreed to pay all expenses of the Fund except the unified management fee paid to the Adviser under the Agreement, interest charges on any borrowings, dividends and other expenses on securities sold short, taxes, brokerage commissions and other expenses incurred in placing orders for the purchase and sale of securities and other investment instruments, acquired fund fees and expenses, accrued deferred tax liability, extraordinary expenses, distribution fees and expenses paid by the Fund under any distribution plan adopted pursuant to Rule 12b-1 under the 1940 Act.

Note 5 – Distribution Agreement

Foreside Fund Services, LLC (the "Distributor") serves as the Fund's distributor pursuant to a Distribution Agreement. The Distributor receives compensation for the statutory underwriting services it provides to the Fund. The Distributor enters into agreements with certain broker-dealers and others that will allow those parties to be "Authorized Participants" and to subscribe for and redeem shares of the Fund. The Distributor will not distribute shares in less than whole Creation Units and does not maintain a secondary market in shares.


14


NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (continued)  December 31, 2021

Note 6 – Related Party Transactions

U.S. Bancorp Fund Services, LLC, doing business as U.S. Bank Global Fund Services ("Fund Services" or the "Administrator"), acts as the Fund's administrator under an Administration Agreement. The Administrator prepares various federal and state regulatory filings, reports and returns for the Fund; prepares reports and materials to be supplied to the Trustees; monitors the activities of the Fund's custodian, transfer agent and fund accountant; coordinates the preparation and payment of the Fund's expenses; and reviews the Fund's expense accruals. Fund Services also serves as the fund accountant and transfer agent to the Fund. U.S. Bank N.A. (the "Custodian"), an affiliate of Fund Services, serves as the Fund's custodian pursuant to a Custody Agreement. Under the terms of these agreements, the Adviser pays the Fund's administrative, custody and transfer agency fees.

Certain officers of the Fund are also employees of Fund Services. A Trustee of the Trust is affiliated with Fund Services and the Custodian.

The Trust's Chief Compliance Officer is also an employee of Fund Services.

Note 7 – Creation and Redemption Transactions

Shares of the Fund are listed and traded on the Cboe BZX Exchange, Inc. (the "Exchange"). The Fund issues and redeems shares on a continuous basis at NAV only in large blocks of shares called "Creation Units." A Creation Unit generally consists of 10,000 shares though this may change from time to time. Creation Units are to be issued and redeemed principally in kind for a basket of securities and a balancing cash amount. Shares generally will trade in the secondary market in amounts less than a Creation Unit at market prices that change throughout the day. Market prices for the shares may be different from their NAV. The NAV is determined as of the close of trading (generally, 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time) on each day the NYSE is open for trading. The NAV of the shares of the Fund will be equal to a Fund's total assets minus a Fund's total liabilities divided by the total number of shares outstanding. The NAV that is published will be rounded to the nearest cent; however, for purposes of determining the price of Creation Units, the NAV will be calculated to five decimal places.

Only "Authorized Participants" may purchase or redeem shares directly from the Fund. An Authorized Participant is either (i) a broker-dealer or other participant in the clearing process through the Continuous Net Settlement System of National Securities Clearing Corporation or (ii) a DTC participant and, in each case, must have executed a Participant Agreement with the Distributor. Most retail investors will not qualify as Authorized Participants or have the resources to buy and sell whole Creation Units. Therefore, they will be unable to purchase or redeem the shares directly from the Fund. Rather, most retail investors will purchase shares in the secondary market with the assistance of a broker and will be subject to customary brokerage commissions or fees. Securities received or delivered in connection with in-kind creates and redeems are valued as of the close of business on the effective date of the creation or redemption.

Creation Unit Transaction Fee

Authorized Participants will be required to pay to the Custodian a fixed transaction fee (the "Creation Transaction Fee") in connection with the issuance of Creation Units. The standard Creation Transaction Fee will be the same regardless of the number of Creation Units purchased by an investor on the applicable Business Day. The Creation Transaction Fee for the Fund is $250.

An additional variable fee of up to a maximum of 2% of the value of the Creation Units subject to the transaction may be imposed for cash purchases, non-standard orders, or partial purchase of Creation Units. For orders comprised entirely of cash, a variable fee of 0.03% of the value of the order will be charged by the Fund. The variable charge is primarily designed to cover additional costs (e.g., brokerage, taxes) involved with buying the securities with cash. The Fund may determine to not charge a variable fee on certain orders when the Adviser has determined that doing so is in the best interests of Fund shareholders.


15


NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (continued)  December 31, 2021

Note 7 – Creation and Redemption Transactions (continued)

Creation Unit Transaction Fee (continued)

A creation unit will generally not be issued until the transfer of good title of the deposit securities to the Fund and the payment of any cash amounts have been completed. To the extent contemplated by the applicable participant agreement, Creation Units of the Fund will be issued to such authorized participant notwithstanding the fact that the Fund's deposits have not been received in part or in whole, in reliance on the undertaking of the authorized participant to deliver the missing deposit securities as soon as possible. If the Fund or its agents do not receive all of the deposit securities, or the required cash amounts, by such time, then the order may be deemed rejected and the authorized participant shall be liable to the Fund for losses, if any.

Note 8 – Investment Transactions

The aggregate purchases and sales of securities, excluding short-term investments, for the Fund for the period ended December 31, 2021 were as follows:

Purchases  

Sales

 
$

18,843,258

   

$

339,545

   

For the period ended December 31, 2021, there were no purchases or sales of U.S. government securities for the Fund.

Note 9 – Principal Risks

As with all ETFs, shareholders of the Fund are subject to the risk that their investment could lose money. The Fund is subject to the principal risks, any of which may adversely affect a Fund's NAV, trading price, yield, total return and ability to meet its investment objective. A description of the principal risks is included in the prospectus under the heading "Principal Risks''.

Note 10 – Recent Market Events

U.S. and international markets have experienced volatility in recent months and years due to a number of economic, political and global macro factors, including the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic, which resulted in a public health crisis, business interruptions, growth concerns in the U.S. and overseas, travel restrictions, changed social behaviors, rising inflation and reduced consumer spending. While several countries, including the U.S., have begun to lift public health restrictions in efforts to reopen their respective economies, the outbreak of the Delta variant has led to the renewal of health mandates by local governments and businesses, reduced hiring efforts by employers, event cancellations and additional travel restrictions, supply chain shortages, cessation of return-to-office plans and an overall economic slowdown. While U.S. and global economies are recovering from the effects of COVID-19, the recovery is proceeding at slower than expected rates and may last for a prolonged period of time. Uncertainties regarding interest rates, political events, rising government debt in the U.S. and trade tensions have also contributed to market volatility. Global economies and financial markets are increasingly interconnected, which increases the possibility that conditions in one country or region might adversely impact issuers in a different country or region. In particular, a rise in protectionist trade policies, slowing global economic growth, risks associated with epidemic and pandemic diseases, risks associated with the United Kingdom's departure from the European Union, the risk of trade disputes, and the possibility of changes to some international trade agreements, could affect the economies of many nations, including the United States, in ways that cannot necessarily be foreseen at the present time. Continuing market volatility as a result of recent market conditions or other events may have adverse effects on your account.

We have audited the accompanying statement of assets and liabilities, including the schedule of investments, of Mairs & Power Minnesota Municipal Bond ETF (the "Fund"), a series of Trust for Professional Managers, as of December 31, 2021, and the related statement of operations, the statement of changes in net assets, the related notes, and the financial highlights for the period from March 11, 2021 (commencement of operations) through December 31, 2021 (collectively referred to as the "financial statements"). In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Fund as of December 31, 2021, the results of its operations, the changes in net assets, and the financial highlights for the period from March 11, 2021 (commencement of operations) through December 31, 2021, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

Basis for Opinion

These financial statements are the responsibility of the Fund's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Fund's financial statements based on our audit. We are a public accounting firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) ("PCAOB") and are required to be independent with respect to the Fund in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.

We conducted our audit in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement whether due to error or fraud.

Our audit included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. Our procedures included confirmation of securities owned as of December 31, 2021, by correspondence with the custodian. Our audit also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

We have served as the Fund's auditor since 2021.

FUND EXPENSES (unaudited)

As a shareholder of the Fund, you incur two types of costs: (1) transaction costs, including brokerage commissions paid on purchases and sales of the Fund's shares and (2) ongoing expenses for the operation of the Fund (e.g., asset-based charges, such as investment management fees).

This example is intended to help you understand your ongoing costs (in dollars) of investing in the Fund and to compare these costs with the ongoing costs of investing in other funds. The table below reports the Fund's expenses during the period July 1, 2021 through December 31, 2021 and includes the costs associated with a $1,000 investment.

Actual Expenses

The first line in the table below provides information about actual account values and actual expenses. You may use the information in this line, together with the amount you invested, to estimate the actual expenses you paid over the reporting period. You can do this by dividing your account value by $1,000 and multiplying the result by the expense shown in the table below. For example, if your account value is $8,600, divided by $1,000 = $8.60. Multiply the result by the number in the first line under the heading entitled "Expenses Paid During Period." By doing this you can estimate the expenses you paid on your account during this period.

Hypothetical Example

The second line of the table below provides information about hypothetical account values and hypothetical expenses based on the Fund's actual expenses and assumed returns of 5% per year before expenses, which is not the Fund's actual returns. The results may be used to provide you with a basis for comparing the ongoing costs of investing in the Fund with the ongoing costs of investing in other funds. To do so, compare these 5% hypothetical examples with the 5% hypothetical examples that appear in the shareholder reports of other funds. Please note that these hypothetical examples highlight ongoing costs only and do not reflect any transactional fees, such as brokerage commissions paid on purchases and sales of exchange-traded fund shares. In addition, if these transactional fees were included, your costs would have been higher. These hypothetical expense examples may not be used to estimate the actual ending account balances or expenses you paid during the period and will not help you determine the relative total costs of owning different funds.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION (unaudited)

TAX INFORMATION

The Fund designated 0.00% of its ordinary income distribution for the period ended November 30, 2021, as qualified dividend income under the Jobs and Growth Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2003.

For the period ended November 30, 2021, 0.00% of dividends paid from net ordinary income qualified for the dividends received deduction available to corporate shareholders.

The percentage of taxable ordinary income distributions that are designated as short-term capital gain distributions under Section 871(k)(2)(C) of the Code for the Fund was 0.00%.

INDEMNIFICATIONS

Under the Trust's organizational documents, its officers and Trustees are indemnified against certain liabilities arising out of the performance of their duties to the Fund. In addition, in the normal course of business, the Fund enters into contracts that provide general indemnifications to other parties. The Fund's maximum exposure under these arrangements is unknown as this would involve future claims that may be made against the Fund that have not yet occurred. However, the Fund has not had prior claims or losses pursuant to these contracts and expects the risk of loss to be remote.
