Investment Objective

 

The OneAscent Small Cap Core ETF (the “Fund”) seeks to closely replicate the returns of the S&P SmallCap 600 Index, before deduction of expenses, using an investment universe that is subjected to the OneAscent Values-Based Screening process.

 

Fees and Expenses of the Fund

 

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 table and examples below.

 

Annual Fund Operating Expenses

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

Management Fees 0.35%
Other Expenses1 0.47%
Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses 0.82%
Fee Waiver and/or Expense Reimbursement2 (0.18)%
Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses 0.64%
1Other Expenses are based on estimated amounts for the current fiscal year.
2The Fund’s adviser, OneAscent Investment Solutions, LLC (the “Adviser”) has contractually agreed to waive its management fee and/or reimburse the Fund’s other expenses in order to limit the Fund’s total annual operating expenses to 0.64% of the Fund’s average daily net assets through December 31, 2025 (excluding portfolio transaction and other investment-related costs (including brokerage fees and commissions); taxes; borrowing costs (such as interest and dividend expenses on securities sold short); acquired fund fees and expenses; fees and expenses associated with investments in other collective investment vehicles or derivative instruments (including for example option and swap fees and expenses); any administrative and/or shareholder servicing fees payable pursuant to a plan adopted by the Board of Trustees (the “Board”); expenses incurred in connection with any merger or reorganization; extraordinary expenses (such as litigation expenses, indemnification of Trust officers and Trustees and contractual indemnification of Fund service providers); and other expenses that the Trustees agree have not been incurred in the ordinary course of the Fund’s business. This expense cap may not be terminated prior to this date except by the Board upon sixty days’ written notice to the Adviser. Each waiver/expense payment by the Adviser is subject to recoupment by the Adviser from the Fund in the three years following the date the particular waiver/expense payment occurred, but only if such recoupment can be achieved without exceeding the annual expense limitation in effect at the time of the waiver/expense payment and any expense limitation in effect at the time of the recoupment.

Expense Example

 

This 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 and then redeem all of your shares at the end of those periods. The Example also assumes that your investment has a 5% return each year, the Fund’s operating expenses remain the same, and the expense reduction/reimbursement described above remains in place for the contractual period only. Although your actual costs may be higher or lower, based on these assumptions your costs would be:

 

1 year   3 years
$ 65   $ 244

 

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 operating expenses or in the Example above, affect the Fund’s performance.
The Fund’s portfolio turnover rate will be available after the Fund completes its first fiscal year.

 

Principal Investment Strategies

 

The Fund invests primarily in small-cap equity securities issued by companies domiciled in the United States, with the intention of tracking the S&P SmallCap 600 Index. The Fund targets approximately 200 equity securities and a 2% tracking error. OneAscent Investment Solutions, LLC(the “Adviser”) may adjust this threshold over time as markets adjust. As of the date of this prospectus, the Adviser considers companies eligible for purchase by the Fund to be those with market capitalizations within the range of companies in the S&P SmallCap 600 Index (currently between $280 million and $8.6 billion) at the time of the initial purchase (“Small Cap Companies”) and that meet the criteria of the Adviser’s Values-Based Screening. Under normal circumstances, the Fund invests at least 80% of the value of its net assets (plus borrowings for investment purposes) in equity securities (principally common stocks) of Small Cap Companies.

 

Values-Based Screening. The Adviser seeks to identify investments that it believes will make an impact on the world according to its values driven investment philosophy. The Adviser eliminates from the investable universe companies that demonstrably and consistently harm their stakeholders. The Adviser captures and considers percentage of revenue thresholds for harmful products, and the Adviser captures and considers patterns of harmful business practices (including forced labor ties, products/practices resulting in consumer death, and environmental mismanagement). This means avoiding companies whose principal business activities and practices include:

·Involvement in abortion, including producing or distributing abortifacients or medical facilities that perform abortions.
·Production, distribution, or supply chain involvement regarding addictive products, including adult entertainment, pornography, gambling, tobacco, and cannabis.
·Predatory lending practices.
·Human rights violations.
·Patterns of severe ethics controversies.

The Adviser’s Values-Based Screening process is proprietary, though the Adviser may refer to third-party resources in conducting its research. The Adviser performs its own due diligence in selecting investments but may consider third-party data. All equity securities must meet, at the time of investment, the Adviser’s Values-Based Screening requirements. If an investment no longer meets the Adviser’s screening requirements, the Adviser intends, but is not required, to sell such investment.

 

Principal Risks

 

All investments involve risks, and the Fund cannot guarantee that it will achieve its investment objective. An investment in the Fund is not insured or guaranteed by any government agency. The Fund’s returns and share price will fluctuate, and you may lose money by investing in the Fund. Therefore, you should consider carefully the following risks before investing in the Fund.

·Market and Geopolitical Risk. The increasing interconnectivity between global economies and financial markets increases the likelihood that events or conditions in one region or financial market may adversely impact issuers in a different country, region or financial market. Securities in the Fund’s portfolio may underperform due to inflation (or expectations for inflation), interest rates, global demand for particular products or resources, natural disasters, climate change and climate-related events, pandemics, epidemics, terrorism, international conflicts, regulatory events and governmental or quasi-governmental actions. The occurrence of global events similar to those in recent years may result in market volatility and may have long term effects on both the U.S. and global financial markets. There is a risk that you may lose money by investing in the Fund.

·         Small Cap Company Risk. Securities of companies with small market capitalizations are often more volatile and less liquid than investments in larger companies. Small cap companies may face a greater risk of business failure, which could increase the volatility of the Fund’s portfolio.

·Active Management Risk. The Fund is actively managed and is thus subject to management risk. The Adviser will apply its investment techniques and strategies in making investment decisions for the Fund, but there is no guarantee that its techniques will produce the intended results.
·Fluctuation of Net Asset Value Risk. The net asset value (“NAV”) of the Fund’s shares will generally fluctuate with changes in the market value of the Fund’s holdings. The market prices of the shares will generally fluctuate in accordance with changes in NAV as well as the relative supply of and demand for the shares on the Exchange (as defined in the “Purchase and Sale of Fund Shares” section of this prospectus). In addition, the Fund is not an index fund. The Fund is actively managed. However, the Fund does seek to replicate the performance of a specified index.
·Market Trading Risk. The Fund faces numerous market trading risks, including the potential lack of an active market for Fund shares, losses from trading in secondary markets, and periods of high volatility and disruption in the creation/redemption process of the Fund. Any of these factors, among others, may lead to the Fund’s shares trading at a premium or discount to NAV. The market for the Fund’s shares may become less liquid in response to deteriorating liquidity in the markets for the Fund’s underlying portfolio holdings.

·         Authorized Participant Concentration Risk. Only an Authorized Participant (as defined in the “How to Buy and Sell Shares” section of this prospectus) may engage in creation or redemption transactions directly with the Fund. The Fund has a limited number of institutions that act as Authorized Participants. 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 create or redeem Creation Units (as defined in the “Purchase and Sale of Fund Shares” section of this prospectus), Fund shares may trade at a discount to NAV and possibly face trading halts and/or delisting.

·Company Risk. The value of the Fund may decrease in response to the activities and financial prospects of an individual company in the Fund’s portfolio. The value of an individual company can be more volatile than the market as a whole.
·Money Market Fund Risks. When the Fund invests in an underlying fund, including a money market fund, the Fund indirectly will bear its proportionate share of any fees and expenses payable directly by the underlying fund. Therefore, the Fund will incur higher expenses, many of which may be duplicative. Although each underlying money market fund in which the Fund may invest seeks to maintain the value of the investments at $1.00 per share, there is no assurance that the underlying fund will be able to do so.
·Equity Securities Risk. The net asset value of the Fund will fluctuate based on changes in the value of the U.S. equity securities held by the Fund. Equity prices can fall rapidly in response to developments affecting a specific company or industry, or to changing economic, political or market conditions.
·Inflation Risk. At any time, the Fund may have significant investments in cash or cash equivalents. When a substantial portion of a portfolio is held in cash or cash equivalents, there is the risk that the value of the cash account, including interest, will not keep pace with inflation, thus reducing purchasing power over time.

·         Values-Based Investment Risk. The Adviser invests in equity securities only if they meet the Fund’s values-based screening requirements, and as such, the return may be lower than if the Adviser made decisions based solely on investment considerations.

·Limited History of Operations Risk. The Fund is a new ETF and has a limited history of operations for investors to evaluate.
·Sector Concentration Risk. The Fund may focus a portion of its investments in securities of a particular sector. Economic, legislative or regulatory developments may occur that significantly affect the sector. This may cause the Fund’s net asset value to fluctuate more than that of a fund that does not focus in a particular sector.
·Issuer Cybersecurity Risk. Issuers of securities in which the Fund invests, counterparties with which Fund engages in transactions, exchange and other financial market operators, banks, brokers, dealers and other financial institutions may experience cybersecurity breaches. These breaches may result in harmful disruptions to operations and may negatively impact the financial condition of an issuer or market participant. The Fund and its shareholders could be negatively impacted as a result.
·Operational Risk. The Fund is exposed to operational risks arising from a number of factors, including, but not limited to, human error, processing and communication errors, errors of the Fund’s service providers, counterparties or other third parties, failed or inadequate processes and technology or systems failures. The Fund and its agents seek to reduce these operational risks through controls and procedures. However, these measures do not address every possible risk and may be inadequate to address significant operational risks.

Andrew Manton, Chief Equity Strategist, Senior Portfolio Manager, has been the portfolio manager of the Fund since May 2024.

 

Purchase and Sale of Fund Shares

 

The Fund will issue and redeem shares at NAV only in large blocks of shares (each block of shares is called a “Creation Unit”) and only to Authorized Participants that have entered into agreements with the Fund’s distributor (the “Distributor”). Creation Units are issued and redeemed for cash and/or in-kind for securities. Except when aggregated in Creation Units, the shares are not redeemable securities of the Fund.

 

Shares of the Fund are listed for trading on NYSE Arca, Inc. (“NYSE Arca” or the “Exchange”) and trade at market prices rather than NAV. Shares of the Fund may trade at a price that is greater than, at, or less than NAV. Individual shares may only be purchased and sold in secondary market transactions through brokers.

 

Tax Information

 

The Fund’s distributions are taxable and will be taxed as ordinary income or capital gains, unless you are investing through a tax-deferred account, such as a 401(k) plan, individual retirement account (IRA) or 529 college savings plan. Tax-deferred arrangements may be taxed later upon withdrawal of monies from those accounts.

 

Payments to Broker-Dealers and Other Financial Intermediaries

 

If you purchase Fund shares through a broker-dealer or other financial intermediary (such as a bank or trust company), the Fund and its related companies may pay the intermediary for the sale of Fund shares and related services. These payments may create conflicts of interest by influencing the broker-dealer or other intermediary and your salesperson to recommend the Fund over another investment. Ask your salesperson or visit your financial intermediary’s website for more information.
