7) The S&P 500 Index is a broad-based, unmanaged measurement of changes in stock market conditions based on the average of 500 widely held common stocks. The Russell 3000 Index measures the performance of the largest 3000 U.S. companies representing approximately 98% of the investable U.S. equity market. The MSCI EAFE Index is an unmanaged free float-adjusted market capitalization index that is designed to measure the equity market performance of developed markets, excluding the US & Canada. The BNY Mellon Classic ADR Index combines the over the counter (OTC) traded ADRs with exchange-listed ADRs bringing transparency to the available universe of American Depositary Receipts, including those issued by many of the world’s premier companies. The MSCI World Index is a free float-adjusted market capitalization weighted index that is designed to measure the equity market performance of developed markets. The MSCI AC World Index is an unmanaged free float-adjusted market capitalization weighted index that is designed to measure the equity market performance of developed and emerging markets. The HFRI Equity Hedge (Total) Index is a fund-weighted index of select hedge funds focusing on Equity Hedge strategies. Equity Hedge investing consists of a core holding of long equities hedged at all times with short sales of stocks and/or stock index options. The Barclays Capital Aggregate Bond Index measures the performance of the U.S. investment grade bond market. The Barclays 1-3 Month U.S. Treasury Bill Index includes all publicly issued zero-coupon U.S. Treasury Bills that have a remaining maturity of less than 3 months and more than 1 month, are rated investment grade, and have $250 million or more of outstanding face value. The Barclays U.S. High Yield Index is an unmanaged index considered representative of the universe of U.S. fixed rate, non investment grade debt. The Spot price of Gold is valued on the basis of each day’s 3pm London time announced price for an ounce of gold set by five market making members of the London Bullion Market Association. One cannot invest directly into an index. A long position is the purchase of an investment with the expectation that it will rise in value. A short position is the sale of a borrowed investment with the expectation that it will decline in value. Duration measures (in years) the sensitivity of the price of a fixed-income investment to a 1% change in interest rates. The Beta is a measure of the volatility, or systematic risk, of a security or a portfolio in comparison to the market as a whole. Beta is used in the capital asset pricing model (CAPM), a model that calculates the expected return of an asset based on its beta and expected market returns. R-Squared is a statistical measure that represents the percentage of a fund or security’s movements that can be explained by movements in a benchmark index. Standard Deviation is a measure of the dispersion of a set of data from its mean. The more spread apart the data, the higher the deviation. Standard deviation is calculated as the square root of variance. An Annualized Return is the return an investment provides over a period of time, expressed as a time-weighted annual percentage. Sources of returns can include dividends, returns of capital and capital appreciation. The rate of annual return is measured against the initial amount of the investment and represents a geometric mean rather than a simple arithmetic mean.  A Cumulative Return is the aggregate amount that an investment has gained or lost over time, independent of the period of time involved.  Presented as a percentage, the cumulative return is the raw mathematical return. The Alpha is a measure of performance on a risk-adjusted basis. Alpha takes the volatility (price risk) of a fund and compares its risk-adjusted performance to a benchmark index. The excess return of the fund relative to the return of the benchmark index is a fund’s alpha. The Sharpe Ratio is developed by Nobel laureate William F. Sharpe to measure risk-adjusted performance. The Sharpe ratio is calculated by subtracting the risk-free rate - such as that of the 10-year U.S. Treasury bond - from the rate of return for a portfolio and dividing the result by the standard deviation of the portfolio returns. The Up-Market Capture Ratio is a statistical measure of an investment manager’s overall performance in up-markets. The up-market capture ratio is used to evaluate how well an investment manager performed relative to an index during periods when that index has risen. The ratio is calculated by dividing the manager’s returns by the returns of the index during the up-market, and multiplying that factor by 100.  The Down-market Capture Ratio is a statistical measure of an investment manager’s overall performance in down-markets. The down-market capture ratio is used to evaluate how well or poorly an investment manager performed relative to an index during periods when that index has dropped. The ratio is calculated by dividing the manager’s returns by the returns of the index during the down-market and multiplying that factor by 100.  The Maximum Drawdown is a peak-to-trough decline during a specific record period of an investment, fund or commodity. A drawdown is usually quoted as the percentage between the peak and the trough. An investment in the Funds is subject to risk, including the possible loss of principal amount invested. Derivatives, as associated with FLRT, GEUR, GYEN, QEH, VEGA, may be riskier and more sensitive to changes in economic or market conditions than other types of investments and could result in losses that significantly exceed the Fund’s original investment. GIVE, HDGB, HDGE, QEH and VEGA may participate in leveraged transactions to include selling securities short which creates the risk of magnified capital losses. Under certain market conditions, short sales can increase the volatility and decrease the liquidity of certain securities or positions and may lower the Fund’s return or result in a loss. Writing and purchasing call and put options are specialized activities and entail greater than ordinary investment risk when considering VEGA. AADR,DIVI and FWDI may use ADRs which are subject to the risk of change in political or economic conditions and exchange rates in foreign currencies. HYLD includes high yield risk, which are lower rated bonds involve a greater degree of risk than investment grade bonds in return for higher yield potential. As it pertains to DIVI, Real Estate Investment Trust Risk (“REITs”) will be subject to the risks associated with the direct ownership or real estate such as fluctuation in value of property and defaults by borrowers or tenants. DIVI may invest in Exchange-Traded Vehicles which subjects the Fund to the risks associated with such vehicle’s investments or reference asset in the case of ETNs, including the possibility that value of the securities could decrease. HOLD’s investment in fixed income securities will change in value in response to interest rate changes and other factors, such as the perception of the issuer’s creditworthiness. The risks associated with each Fund include the risks associated with the underlying ETFs, which can result in higher volatility, and are detailed in each Fund’s prospectus. These Funds may not be suitable for all investors. Shares are bought and sold at market price (closing price) not NAV and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Market price returns are based on the midpoint of the bid/ask spread at 4:00pm Eastern Time (when NAV is normally determined), and do not represent the return you would receive if you traded at other times. Holdings and allocations are subject to risks and to change. Before investing you should carefully consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. This and other information is in the prospectus, a copy of which may be obtained by visiting the Fund’s website at www.AdvisorShares.com. Please read the prospectus carefully before you invest.
