          Future of Food

          UCITS ETF (FOOD)


          The security of our food system is one of the world’s most pressing challenges. With dwindling natural resources, the challenge of providing healthy, affordable and nutritious food to a growing global population – all while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and environmental harm – is intensifying. The food industry has started to respond, expanding plant-based protein options and increasing sustainability of farming, and improving supply-chains and packaging. Consumers too, have become more concerned about food safety and the provenance of what they eat. The global food system now requires urgent transformation if we want to avoid the sorts of planetary damage that awaits if we do nothing – loss of biodiversity, freshwater depletion, pollution of our rivers and oceans and enduring damage to our soils. The good news is that system-wide and holistic change comes with new opportunities. Our pioneering investment strategy and ETF – Europe’s first sustainable food ETF – provides investors with exposure to companies that are innovating across the food value chain to build a more sustainable, secure and fair food system for our planet.

          FUND SUMMARY

          The Rize Sustainable Future of Food UCITS ETF (FOOD) seeks to invest in companies that potentially stand to benefit from the accelerating transition to more sustainable food production systems and consumption patterns and thereby safeguarding our nature and ecosystems, promoting transparency and safety and encouraging plant-based consumption in order to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. FOOD seeks to provide investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield performance, before fees and expenses, of the Foxberry Tematica Research Sustainable Future of Food Index.

          • All financial investments involve an element of risk. Therefore, the value of your investment and the income from it will vary and your initial investment amount cannot be guaranteed.
          • FOOD is vulnerable to cyclical declines in the food and agriculture sector.
          • Individual companies are subject to intense competition that may negatively impact their revenues and market values and therefore FOOD’s value.
          • FOOD also invests in small publicly-traded companies which may be less mature and therefore more vulnerable to adverse business or economic events and greater and more unpredictable price changes than larger companies, the food & agriculture sector as a whole or the stock market as a whole.
          • FOOD invests in global equity securities. As such there is a risk of loss arising from exchange rate fluctuations or exchange control regulations.
          • Other: (1) Third party service providers (such as the ICAV’s depositary) may go bankrupt and fail to pay money due to FOOD or return property belonging to FOOD. (2) If the Index provider stops calculating the Index or if FOOD’s license to replicate the Index is terminated, FOOD may have to be closed. (3) It may not always be possible to buy and sell FOOD’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 FOOD and investors can lose all the capital invested in FOOD. (5) Please refer to the “Risk Factors” section of the ICAV’s Prospectus and the Fund Supplement.
