Pacer Funds

 

Dear Shareholder,

 

I address you today as we reflect upon the progress, achievements, and exciting opportunities for Pacer.

 

I am pleased to report Pacer has demonstrated strong growth over the past year. From April 30, 2022 to April 30, 2023 Pacer’s assets under management grew to $23.8 billion, with an overall growth percentage of 80.7%. Pacer ETFs saw particularly significant growth within the Cash Cows ETF™ Series, having a 199% increase during that time period. Despite the volatile markets, many of our strategies grew assets significantly and performed in line with their objectives, a testament to our firm’s commitment to deliver investment solutions that can help investors navigate challenging market environments.

 

In today’s rapidly evolving business landscape, innovation is the key to staying ahead of the competition. I am proud to share that Pacer launched four new thematic funds; the Pacer BlueStar Digital Entertainment ETF (ticker: ODDS), the Pacer BlueStar Engineering the Future ETF (ticker: BULD), the Pacer Industrials and Logistics ETF (ticker: SHPP), and the Pacer Data and Digital Revolution ETF (ticker: TRFK). The important themes captured by these funds include artificial intelligence (AI) in BULD, supply chain in SHPP, online gambling, eSports and video gaming in ODDS, and data transmission and communication in TRFK.

 

Looking ahead, we are optimistic about the future of Pacer. We have continued to grow our team to be able to reach more financial advisors. This allows us to support their business and help meet their clients’ investment needs. We will continue to invest in our people to ensure that we remain at the forefront of innovation and deliver long-term value to shareholders. We thank our investors, financial advisors, and partners for continuing to entrust your assets with us.

 

 

Joe M. Thomson,
Chairman, Pacer Funds Trust

From the period 5/1/2022 – 4/30/2023, the S&P 500 gained 2.66%, the Nasdaq-100 gained 3.99%, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 5.64%. Though all three indices were able to post positive returns, the road to get there was bumpy. Much like the first half of 2022, the second half of 2022 was marked by volatility in financial markets. From the period 5/1/2022 through the end of the year, the returns of the S&P 500, Nasdaq-100, and Dow Jones Industrial Average were: -5.96%, -14.34%, and 2.04%, respectively. Record high inflation, hawkish monetary policy, and concerns over a potential recession led to volatility in equity and fixed income markets. During the second half of 2022, inflation in the US reached levels which hadn’t been seen since the inflationary period of the 1970’s. Inflation in the US averaged 8% from 5/1/2022 through the end of the year, peaking at 9.1% in June before moderating throughout the remainder of the year. In order to combat inflation, the Federal Reserve (Fed) hiked rates aggressively in the latter half of 2022, raising the target Federal Funds Rate (FFR) by 75 basis points in June, July, September, and November, and by 50 basis points in May and December. This brought the 2022 year-end FFR range to 4.25% - 4.50%, blowing past median expectations, which began 2022 at only 0.90%. Due to high inflation and a rapid response from the Federal Reserve, there were losses observed in both equity and fixed income markets throughout the second half of 2022. From 5/1/2023 until the end of the year, the Bloomberg US AGG Index and the S&P 500 total return index experienced declines of -3.87% and -5.96% respectively.

 

The start of 2023 brought a much-needed sigh of relief for financial markets. After a tumultuous 2022, both equity and fixed income markets recovered to start 2023. From the beginning of 2023 through 4/30/2023, the S&P 500, Nasdaq-100, Dow Jones Industrial Average, and Bloomberg US Aggregate Bond Index returned: 9.17%, 21.40%, 3.53%, and 3.59%, respectively. Mega Capitalization (Mega-Cap) technology stocks bounced back at the beginning of 2023 after suffering steep losses in 2022. A select few Mega-Cap tech stocks drove the S&P 500 and tech-heavy Nasdaq-100 index higher to start the year. As of 4/30/2023 the 5 largest stocks in the S&P 500 are responsible for over 80% of the YTD returns in 2023, those companies being: Apple, Amazon, Alphabet, Microsoft, and Nvidia. The lack of breadth in the market recovery YTD in 2023 has led the market-capitalization indices to have the highest concentrations to a select group of companies since the Dot-Com Bubble. The aggressive actions employed by the Fed in 2022 seem to be having the desired effect on inflation, as the inflation rate in the US moderated from 6.5% in December 2022 to 4.9% in April 2023. April’s CPI print was the first-time year-over-year inflation registered under 5% in two years (since April 2021). Though inflation is moderating, there’s still work to do to reach the Fed’s 2% inflation target, which led the Fed to raise the target FFR another 25 basis points in March 2023. Financial markets have shrugged off elevated inflation, tighter monetary policy, and recession fears thus far in 2023. Recession fears, which permeated discussions amongst financial market participants in the latter half of 2022, have receded slightly. Stronger than expected economic data and a historically low unemployment rate of 3.4% in April 2023 have juxtaposed concerns over a recession in 2023. Moving forward, all eyes will be on how inflation and monetary policy affect corporate earnings. Earnings declined Y-o-Y during the first quarter of 2023, though the decline was less than expected heading into earnings season.

Pacer Funds

 

From 11/1/2022 to 4/28/2023, the Fund experienced notable contributions to its return from three sectors.

safety, and natural disasters. Next, the Index Provider utilizes publicly available information such as financial reports and screens, corporate websites, news reports, and interviews with key opinion leaders to identify publicly traded companies which protect against and prepare for recovering from these threats. These companies have products, technologies, and services that seek to: ● research or combat pandemic diseases such as the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), Zika, H1N1, Ebola, avian flu, and MERS; ● combat agents of biological or chemical warfare such as anthrax, sarin gas, variola virus, and brucellosis; ● detect the presence of biological or chemical threats; ● enable social distancing and increased productivity for working and shopping at home; ● secure national borders and ports and strengthen homeland security; ● aid in stockpiling of products in times of natural disasters and disease outbreaks, such as canned foods, power sources, consumer first aid kits, anti-microbial agents, gas masks, and sterilization supplies and services; and ● test and improve food and water safety and purity. Finally, the Index Provider only includes those companies with a minimum market capitalization of $1 billion and a minimum average daily value traded for the last six moths of at least $2 million. Index components are weighted based on their market capitalization, subject to a maximum weight of 4.9% at the time of rebalance. The Index is reconstituted (i.e., components are added or removed and weights are reset based on the Index methodology) on the third Friday of each January and rebalanced (i.e., weights are reset based on the Index methodology, but no components are added or removed) semi-annually as of the close of business on the third Friday of each January and July.

The S&P500 includes approximately 500 leading companies and captures approximately 80% of the U.S. market capitalization. Accordingly, each Sub-Index is composed of large-capitalization equity 4 securities. S&P Opco LLC (a subsidiary of S&P Dow Jones Indices, LLC) compiles, maintains, and calculates the S&P 500 Index and the Sub-Indices. The S&P 500 Low Volatility Index is composed of the 100 securities comprising the S&P 500 Index that have exhibited the lowest realized volatility over the prior 12 months. Each stock comprising the S&P 500 Low Volatility Index is weighted by the inverse of its volatility with the least volatile stocks receiving the highest weights. Volatility is a statistical measurement of the magnitude of price fluctuations in a stock’s price over time. The S&P 500 High Beta Index is composed of the 100 securities comprising the S&P 500 Index that have exhibited the highest sensitivity to market movements, or “beta,” over the prior 12 months. The weight of each stock in the S&P 500 High Beta Index is proportionate to its beta, rather than to its market capitalization. Beta is a measure of relative risk and is the rate of change of a security’s price. The Index utilizes Lunt Capital’s proprietary relative strength analysis in its attempt to determine which Sub-Index is likely to exhibit better price performance than the other Sub-Index. Pursuant to this methodology, the Index Provider calculates the “Risk Adjusted Score” for each Sub-Index. Each Sub-Index’s “Risk-Adjusted Score” is calculated using the Sub-Index’s standard deviation of returns over the prior 12 months. On the final trading day of each month, the Index Provider computes the relative strength of each Sub-Index by comparing each Sub-Index’s Risk-Adjusted Score. The Index Provider considers the Sub-Index with the higher Risk-Adjusted Score to have the higher relative strength. The Index is composed of the securities comprising the Sub-Index demonstrating the greater relative strength. The Index is reconstituted and rebalanced monthly, except when the Index methodology would not result in a change in the Sub-Index comprising the Index at such time.

Pacer Lunt Midcap Multi-Factor Alternator ETF

 

The Pacer Lunt Midcap Multi-Factor Alternator ETF employs a “passive management” (or indexing) investment approach designed to track the total return performance, before fees and expenses, of the Index.

 

The Index is based on a proprietary methodology developed by Lunt Capital Management, Inc. (“Lunt Capital” or the “Index Provider”). The Index uses an objective, rules-based methodology to provide exposure to mid-capitalization U.S. companies. The Index uses Lunt Capital’s proprietary relative strength methodology to rotate between the holdings of the highest and lowest quintile components of four factor-based indices of the S&P MidCap 400 Index (each, a “Sub-Index,” and together, the “Sub-Indices”), that seek to identify the components of the S&P MidCap 400 Index that most strongly exhibit a particular factor. The four factor groups are Momentum, Quality, Value, and Volatility. 9 The Index will include holdings for two of the following eight Sub-Indices: Momentum Quality Value Volatility Highest Quintile S&P MidCap 400 Momentum Index S&P MidCap 400 Quality Index S&P MidCap 400 Enhanced Value Index S&P MidCap 400 Volatility - Highest Quintile Index Lowest Quintile S&P MidCap 400 Momentum - Lowest Quintile Index S&P MidCap 400 Quality - Lowest Quintile Index S&P MidCap 400 Enhanced Value - Lowest Quintile Index S&P MidCap 400 Low Volatility Index Each Sub-Index is composed of the 80 securities (a quintile) comprising the S&P MidCap 400 Index that most strongly exhibit the characteristic screened for by the Sub-Index. The S&P MidCap 400 Index is a market-weighted index and measures the performance of mid-capitalization stocks in the United States. S&P Opco LLC (a subsidiary of S&P Dow Jones Indices, LLC) compiles, maintains, and calculates the S&P MidCap 400 Index and the Sub-Indices. The Index utilizes Lunt Capital’s proprietary relative strength analysis in its attempt to determine which two Sub-Indices are likely to exhibit better price performance than the other Sub-Indices. Pursuant to this methodology, the Index Provider calculates the “Risk Adjusted Score” for each Sub-Index. On the final trading day of each month, the Index Provider computes the relative strength of each Sub-Index by comparing each Sub-Index’s Risk-Adjusted Score. The Index Provider considers a higher Risk-Adjusted Score to indicate greater relative strength. The Index is composed of the securities comprising the two Sub-Indices demonstrating the greatest relative strength unless such Sub-Indices include both the highest and lowest quintile from the same factor group, in which case only the Sub-Indices with the highest and third-highest Risk-Adjusted Score would be selected. The Index is reconstituted and rebalanced monthly, except when the Index methodology would not result in a change in the Sub-Indices comprising the Index at such time.

 

The Fund

 

The Fund as of April 2023, had a NAV total return of 4.43%. The Index had a total return of 5.23%. The S&P MidCap 400 Index had a total return of 1.33%.

The Index is composed of the securities comprising the two Sub-Indices demonstrating the greatest relative strength unless such Sub-Indices include both the highest and lowest quintile from the same factor group, in which case only the Sub-Indices with the highest and third-highest Risk-Adjusted Score would be selected. The Index is reconstituted and rebalanced monthly, except when the Index methodology would not result in a change in the Sub-Indices comprising the Index at such time. The Fund’s Investment Strategy Under normal circumstances, at least 80% of the Fund’s total assets (exclusive of collateral held from securities lending) will be invested in the component securities of the Fund’s underlying Index or in one or more ETFs that track the performance of all or a portion of such component securities in the same approximate proportion as in the Fund’s underlying Index. The Fund’s investment adviser expects that, over time, the correlation between the Fund’s performance and that of the Index, before fees and expenses, will be 95% or better. The Fund will generally use a “replication” strategy to achieve its investment objective, meaning it will invest in all of the component securities of the Index. The Fund is considered to be non-diversified, which means that it may invest more 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

 

The Fund had a NAV total return of -2.26%. The Index had a total return of -1.59%. The S&P 500 Index had a total return of 2.66%

 

During the fiscal year, the top three sectors for contribution to performance were Information Technology at 6.05%, Energy at 6.77%, and Health Care at 7.31%.

The Pacer Leaders ETF Series

 

The Pacer Leaders ETFs are strategy-driven, rules-based and are each designed to offer exposure to leaders in specific themes. The period referenced in this section for all custom funds is for the fiscal year end of April 30, 2023.

 

Pacer US Export Leaders ETF

 

The Pacer US Export Leaders ETF (the “Fund”) is an exchange traded fund that seeks to track the total return performance, before fees and expenses, of the Pacer US Export Leaders Index (the “Index”).

 

The Index uses an objective, rules-based methodology to measure the performance of an equal weight portfolio of approximately 100 large- and mid-capitalization U.S. companies with a high percentage of foreign sales and high free cash flow growth. Free cash flow is a company’s cash flow from operations minus its capital expenditures. Construction of the Index begins with an initial universe of the 200 companies across the S&P 900® Index (which is comprised of the S&P 500® Index (“S&P 500”) and S&P MidCap 400® Index (“S&P MidCap 400”)) that have the highest annual foreign sales as a percentage of total sales. The 200 companies are then narrowed to the 100 companies with the highest change in free cash flow growth over the past five years, and those 100 companies are equally weighted to create the Index. The Index is reconstituted and rebalanced to equal-weight quarterly. From time to time, the Index may include more or less than 100 companies as a result of events such as acquisitions, spin-offs and other corporate actions. The S&P 500 consists of approximately 500 leading U.S.-listed companies representing approximately 80% of the U.S. equity market capitalization. The S&P MidCap 400 measures the performance of mid-capitalization stocks in the United States.

 

The Fund

 

The Fund had a NAV total return of 5.06%. The Index had a total return of 5.64%. The S&P 900 Index had a total return of 2.59%.

 

The Fund’s top three contributors to its return were Health Care at 11.87%, Financials at 19.86%, and Industrials at 14.10%. The Fund’s bottom three contributors to its return were Materials at -9.98%, Consumer Discretionary at 1.15%, and Real Estate at 2.60%. Performance numbers reflect their total return during the period.    

 

Pacer Pacific Asset Floating Rate High Income ETF

 

Aristotle Capital Management, LLC (the “Sub-Adviser”) seeks to achieve the Fund’s investment objective by selecting a focused portfolio comprised primarily of income-producing adjustable rate securities. Under normal circumstances, the Fund will invest at least 80% of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in senior secured floating rate loans and other adjustable rate securities. Other adjustable rate securities will typically include collateralized loan obligations (“CLOs”), asset-backed securities (“ABS”), and commercial mortgage backed securities (“CMBS”) (collectively, “Adjustable Rate Securities”). The Fund is expected to invest primarily in loans and Adjustable Rate Securities that are rated below investment grade (i.e., high yield securities, sometimes called “junk bonds” or non-investment grade securities)

 

16

 

 

Pacer Funds

 

or, if unrated, of comparable quality as determined by the Sub-Adviser. The Fund may invest in U.S.-dollar denominated senior floating rate loans and Adjustable Rate Securities of domestic and foreign issuers. Senior floating rate loans are debt instruments that may have a right to payment that is senior to most other debts of borrowers. Borrowers may include corporations, partnerships and other entities that operate in a variety of industries and geographic regions, which may from time to time prepay their loan obligations in response, for example, to changes in interest rates. Senior loans in which the Fund may invest include secured and unsecured loans. Generally, secured floating rate loans are secured by specific assets of the borrower. An adjustable rate security includes any fixed income security that requires periodic changes in its interest rate based upon changes in a recognized index interest rate or another method of determining prevailing interest rates. The Fund invests in various types of ABS, such as auto loan and student loan ABS. The Fund is actively managed. The Fund may invest up to 20% of its assets in certain other types of debt instruments or securities, including corporate bonds (including floating rate investment grade bonds) and secured or unsecured second lien floating rate loans. Second lien loans generally are second in line behind senior loans in terms of prepayment priority with respect to pledged collateral and therefore have a lower credit quality as compared to senior loans but may produce a higher yield to compensate for the additional risk. The secondary market on which high yield securities are traded may be less liquid than the market for investment-grade securities. Less liquidity in the secondary trading market could adversely affect the ability of the Fund to sell a high yield security or the price at which the Fund could sell a high yield security, and could adversely affect the daily NAV of Fund shares. When secondary markets for high yield securities are less liquid than the market for investment-grade securities, it may be more difficult to value the securities because such valuation may require more research, and elements of judgment may play a greater role in the valuation because there is less reliable, objective data available. The Fund may invest up to an aggregate amount of 15% of its net assets in illiquid investments, as such term is defined by Rule 22e-4 under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “1940 Act”). When the Sub-Adviser believes that current market, economic, political or other conditions are unsuitable and would impair the pursuit of the Fund’s investment objectives, the Fund may invest some or all of its assets in cash or cash equivalents, including but not limited to obligations of the U.S. government, money market fund shares, commercial paper, certificates of deposit and/or bankers acceptances, as well as other interest bearing or discount obligations or debt instruments that carry an investment grade rating by a national rating agency. When the Fund takes a temporary defensive position, the Fund may not achieve its investment objectives. The Fund may invest from time to time more heavily in one or more sectors of the economy than in other sectors.

Pacer Metaurus US Large Cap Dividend Multiplier 300 ETF

 

The Pacer Metaurus US Large Cap Dividend Multiplier 300 ETF employs a “passive management” (or indexing) investment approach designed to track the total return performance, before fees and expenses, of the Index. The Index is based on a proprietary methodology developed by Metaurus Advisors LLC (“Metaurus”), the Fund’s sub-adviser and the Fund’s index provider. All or a portion of the methodologies and algorithms used to calculate the Index are covered by one or more granted or pending U.S. patents owned by Metaurus.

 

The Index, as designed, has two components: (i) an S&P 500 Index component (the “S&P 500 Component”) and (ii) a dividend component (the “Dividend Component”) consisting of long positions in annual futures contracts that provide exposure to ordinary dividends paid on the common stocks of companies included in the S&P 500 (“S&P Dividend Futures”). The S&P 500 Index consists of approximately 500 leading U.S.-listed companies representing approximately 80% of the U.S. equity market capitalization. The Dividend Component is designed to give the Fund exposure to approximately 300% of the ordinary dividends the Fund would otherwise have expected to receive from its investment in the S&P 500 Component. The Dividend Component consists of annual futures contracts whose value represents the market’s expectation of the amount of ordinary dividends to be paid by S&P 500 companies during the term of the futures contract. As of April 30, 2022, the S&P 500 Component comprised approximately 88% of the Index. S&P Dividend Futures seek to allow investors in these instruments to obtain exposure to the actual dividend value that will be paid by the S&P 500 constituent companies over a period of time. The amount of such futures contracts will generally result in exposure to such dividends that is significantly greater than the amount of dividends that the Fund would normally receive from its direct investment in S&P 500 constituent companies (i.e., approximately 300% of such dividends that the Fund would normally have received). S&P Dividend Futures provide for the future sale by one party and purchase by another party of a specified dividend value of the S&P 500 at a specified future time and at a specified price. S&P Dividend Futures are

standardized contracts traded on a recognized exchange. The Fund’s investment in S&P Dividend Futures will generally include the three most current annual S&P Dividend Futures contracts (e.g., in April 2022, the Fund would invest in the 2022, 2023, and 2024 contracts. The Index is typically rebalanced each December, at the end of the trading day on which the current year’s S&P Dividend Futures expire. At each rebalancing date, the current year’s annual S&P Dividend Futures will be replaced by the then closest maturing contract in three years. On each Index rebalancing date, the composition of the Index is expected to change.

 

The Fund

 

The Fund had a NAV total return of 2.64%. The Index had a total return of 3.38%. The S&P 500 Index had a total return of 2.66%.

Pacer Advisors, Inc. is the fund advisor. Aristotle Capital Management, LLC serves as investment sub-advisor to the Pacer Pacific Asset Floating Rate High Income Fund. The Fund is the successor to the Pacific Global Senior Loan ETF, a series of Pacific Global ETF Trust, and its investment performance as a result of the reorganization of the Predecessor Fund into the Fund at the close of business on October 22, 2021. In addition, the Pacific Global Senior Loan ETF was the successor to the investment performance of AdvisorShares Pacific Asset Enhanced Floating Rate ETF, a series of AdvisorShares Trust, as a result of the reorganization of the series of AdvisorShares Trust into a series of Pacific Global ETF that occurred on December 27, 2019 (together, the “Predecessor Fund”).

 

From the Predecessor Fund’s inception to October 22, 2021, the Predecessor Fund invested at least 80% of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in senior secured floating rate loans. After the reorganization, the Fund invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus any borrowings for investment purposes) in senior secured floating rate loans and other adjustable rate securities. Other than each Fund’s respective 80% policy and the associated risks with investing in adjustable rate securities, the Funds had similar investment objectives, strategies, and policies.

PERFORMANCE SUMMARY
(Unaudited)

 

 

Growth of $10,000

 

 

This chart illustrates the performance of a hypothetical $10,000 investment made on May 3, 2019, and is not intended to imply any future performance. The returns shown do not reflect the deduction of taxes that a shareholder would pay on fund distributions or the redemption of fund shares. The chart assumes reinvestment of capital gains and dividends.

 

The Pacer Trendpilot Fund of Funds Index uses an objective, rules-based approach to construct a portfolio that, as of each quarterly rebalance, is composed of the ETFs listed in the following table, each advised by the Adviser (collectively, the “Trendpilot ETFs”). Each of the Trendpilot ETFs is an index-based ETF that seeks to track the total return performance, before fees and expenses, of the underlying index listed in the following table (collectively, the “Trendpilot Indexes”). Each Trendpilot Index other than the Pacer Trendpilot US Bond Index (collectively, the “Trendpilot Equity Indexes”) uses an objective, rules-based methodology to implement a systematic trend-following strategy that directs exposure (i) 100% to the “Underlying Component” specified in the table below, (ii) 50% to the applicable Underlying Component and 50% to 3-Month US Treasury bills, or (iii) 100% to 3-Month US Treasury bills, depending on the relative performance of the Underlying Component and its 200 business day historical simple moving average (the “200-day moving average”). The calculation of the 200-day moving average for each Underlying Component is based on the total return version of such Underlying Component and reflects the reinvestment of dividends paid by the securities in such Underlying Component. The Pacer Trendpilot US Bond Index (the “Trendpilot Bond Index”) uses an objective, rules-based methodology to implement a systematic trend-following strategy that directs exposure to one of the following positions: (i) 100% to the iBoxx® USD Liquid High Yield Index, (ii) 50% to the iBoxx USD Liquid High Yield Index and 50% to the iBoxx USD Treasuries 7-10 Year Index or (iii) 100% to iBoxx® USD Treasuries 7-10 Year Index, depending on the value of the iBoxx USD Liquid High Yield Index divided by the value of the iBoxx USD Treasuries 7-10 Year Index (the “Risk Ratio”).

The initial universe of companies is screened based on their average projected free cash flows and earnings (if available) over each of the next two fiscal years. Companies for which information on their projected free cash flows or earnings is not available will remain in the Index universe. Companies with negative average projected free cash flows or earnings are removed from the Index universe. Additionally, financial companies, other than real estate investment trusts, are excluded from the Index universe. The remaining companies are ranked by their free cash flow yield for the trailing twelve month period. The equity securities of the 50 companies with the highest free cash flow yield are included in the Index.

 

The S&P 900 Pure Growth Index is composed of companies found in the S&P 400 and S&P 500 Indices, including mid- and large-cap stocks based on growth potential with respect to sales, earnings relative to price, and momentum.

PERFORMANCE SUMMARY
(Unaudited)

 

 

Growth of $10,000

 

This chart illustrates the performance of a hypothetical $10,000 investment made on June 24, 2020, and is not intended to imply any future performance. The returns shown do not reflect the deduction of taxes that a shareholder would pay on fund distributions or the redemption of fund shares. The chart assumes reinvestment of capital gains and dividends.

 

The Lunt Capital U.S. Large Cap Multi-Factor Rotation Index uses an objective, rules-based methodology to provide exposure to large-capitalization U.S. companies. The Index uses Lunt Capital’s proprietary relative strength methodology to rotate between the holdings of the highest and lowest quintile components of four factor-based indices of the S&P 500 Index (each, a “Sub-Index,” and together, the “Sub-Indices”), that seek to identify the components of the S&P 500 Index that most strongly exhibit a particular factor. The four factor groups are Momentum, Quality, Value, and Volatility.

 

The S&P 500 Index consists of approximately 500 leading U.S.-listed companies.

PERFORMANCE SUMMARY
(Unaudited)

 

 

Growth of $10,000

 

 

This chart illustrates the performance of a hypothetical $10,000 investment made on July 23, 2018, and is not intended to imply any future performance. The returns shown do not reflect the deduction of taxes that a shareholder would pay on fund distributions or the redemption of fund shares. The chart assumes reinvestment of capital gains and dividends.

 

The Pacer US Export Leaders Index uses an objective, rules-based methodology to measure the performance of an equal weight portfolio of approximately 100 large- and mid-capitalization U.S. companies with a high percentage of foreign sales and high free cash flow growth. Free cash flow is a company’s cash flow from operations minus its capital expenditures. Construction of the Index begins with an initial universe of the 200 companies across the S&P 900® Index (which is comprised of the S&P 500® Index (“S&P 500”) and S&P MidCap 400® Index (“S&P MidCap 400”)) that have the highest annual foreign sales as a percentage of total sales. The 200 companies are then narrowed to the 100 companies with the highest change in free cash flow growth over the past five years, and those 100 companies are equally weighted to create the Index. The Index is reconstituted and rebalanced to equal-weight quarterly.

 

The S&P 900® combines the S&P 500® and the S&P MidCap 400® to form an investable benchmark for the mid- to large-cap segment of the U.S. equity market.

EXPENSE EXAMPLE
For the Six-Months Ended April 30, 2023

 

 

As a shareholder of a Fund, you pay ongoing expenses, such as advisory fees, and other fund expenses. The following examples are intended to help you understand the ongoing cost (in dollars) of investing in a Fund and to compare these costs with the ongoing costs of investing in other funds. Please note, the expenses shown in the tables are meant to highlight ongoing costs only and do not reflect any transactional costs. You may pay brokerage commissions on your purchase and sale of Fund shares, which are not reflected in the following examples. Each example is based on an investment of $1,000 invested at the beginning of the period and held for the entire period as indicated below.

 

Actual Expenses

 

The columns under the heading entitled “Actual” help you estimate the actual expenses you paid over the period. The “Actual Ending Account Value” shown is derived from a Fund’s actual return and the “Actual Expenses Paid During Period” show the dollar amount that would have been paid by an investor who started with $1,000 in a Fund. To estimate the expenses you paid on your account during this period, simply divide your account value by $1,000 (for example, an $8,600 account value divided by $1,000=8.6), then multiply the result by the number in the column under the heading untitled “Actual Expenses Paid During Period”.

 

Hypothetical Example for Comparison Purposes

 

The columns under the heading entitled “Hypothetical” provide information about hypothetical account value and hypothetical expenses based on a Fund’s actual expense ratio and an assumed rate of return of 5% per year before expenses, which is not the Fund’s return. The hypothetical account values and expenses may not be used to estimate the actual ending account balance or expenses you paid for the period. You may use this information to compare the ongoing costs of investing in a Fund and other funds. To do so, compare this 5% hypothetical example with the 5% hypothetical examples that appear in the shareholder reports of other funds.

 

Please note that the expenses shown in the table are meant to highlight your ongoing costs only and do not reflect any transactional costs which may be applicable to your account. Therefore, the last column of the table (Hypothetical Expenses Paid During Period) is useful in comparing ongoing costs only and will not help you determine the relative total costs of owning different funds. In addition, if these transactional costs were included, your costs would have been higher.
