            FUND SUMMARY

            The Rize Environmental Impact 100 UCITS ETF (LIFE) seeks to invest in the 100 most innovative and impactful companies that potentially stand to benefit from developing and applying solutions that address the world’s most pressing climatic and environmental challenges. This includes leaders and innovators across clean water, EVs, renewables and hydrogen, energy efficiency, waste and the circular economy and nature-based solutions. LIFE has been designed to address the six environmental objectives set out in the EU Taxonomy for Sustainable Activities: (1) Climate Change Mitigation; (2) Climate Change Adaptation; (3) The Sustainable Use and Protection of Water and Marine Resources; (4) The Transition to A Circular Economy; (5) Pollution Prevention and Control; and (6) The Protection and Restoration of Biodiversity and Ecosystems. LIFE seeks to provide investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield performance, before fees and expenses, of the Foxberry SMS Environmental Impact 100 Index.

            INVESTMENT CASE

            Our planet faces unprecedented threats, with rising temperatures, shifting rainfall patterns, retreating sea ice cover, acidifying oceans, degrading soils, drying aquifers and increasing occurrences of droughts and floods. Simultaneously, the exploitation and degradation of Earth’s remaining natural resources, habitats and biodiversity continue unabated. Johann Gottlieb Fichte, in “The Vocation of Man”, highlighted the butterfly effect, emphasising how small changes can have far-reaching implications in complex systems. Our planet, as a complex system, now experiences fundamental alterations due to our persistent assault on its health and vitality. The evidence is undeniable: microplastics in Antarctic ice, the collapse of Canada’s last intact ice shelf and severe wildfires in California. Our balance with nature has been lost, necessitating the restoration of a thriving future for both people and nature. By making nature our ally, we can restore the rich and biodiverse world we inherited. Our first-of-its-kind investment strategy and ETF – Europe’s first environmental impact ETF – provides investors with exposure to the most innovative and impactful companies that are tackling the world’s most pressing climatic and environmental challenges. Companies across clean water, EVs, renewables and hydrogen, energy efficiency, waste and the circular economy and nature-based solutions that hold the promise of a greener future.

            Risks

            The Fund may be subject to the risks associated with companies operating in the renewable energy sectors including, but not limited to, fluctuating energy prices which impact upon company revenues, weather fluctuations that impact the ability to generate electricity, the risk that existing regulatory frameworks (the benefits of which might include commitments to pay premium prices, priority access to electricity grids, support for the necessary infrastructure investments and guarantees of purchases of renewable energy output) become less supportive and the cost of producing renewable energy which can be high relative to conventional energy sources / technologies (which pose a risk to the long term economic viability of renewable energy ventures).

            Some companies may be smaller and less experienced companies, with limited product lines, markets or financial resources and fewer experienced management or marketing personnel. They may experience extreme price and volume fluctuations that are often unrelated to their operating performance.

            The Index is typically comprised of a mix of micro, small, mid and large capitalisation companies. Micro and small capitalisation companies may be more vulnerable to adverse business or economic events than larger, more established companies and may underperform other segments of the market or the equity market as a whole. Securities of micro and small capitalisation companies generally trade in lower volumes, are less liquid and are often more vulnerable to market volatility and greater and more unpredictable price changes than larger capitalisation stocks or the stock market as a whole.

            Other: (1) Third party service providers (such as the ICAV’s depositary) may go bankrupt and fail to pay money due to the Fund or return property belonging to the Fund. (2) If the Index provider stops calculating the Index or if the Fund’s license to replicate the Index is terminated, the Fund may have to be closed. (3) It may not always be possible to buy and sell the Fund’s Shares on a stock exchange or at prices closely reflecting the Net Asset Value. (4) There is no capital guarantee or protection on the value of the Fund and investors can lose all the capital invested in the Fund. (5) Please refer to the “Risk Factors” section of the ICAV’s Prospectus and the Fund Supplement.
