PRICING AND PERFORMANCE

Select Month:
Performance
As of
The fund recently experienced significant negative short-term performance due to market volatility associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. Performance data quoted on this website represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed or sold in the secondary market, may be worth more or less than the original cost. Investors will incur usual and customary brokerage commissions when buying or selling shares of the exchange-traded funds (“ETFs”) in the secondary market, and that, if reflected, the brokerage commissions would reduce the performance returns. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance shown. Shares are bought and sold at market price not net asset value (“NAV”) and are not individually redeemable from the fund. Call 855-FLEXETF (855-353-9383) for more information.

Performance figures do not reflect the deduction of taxes that a shareholder would pay on Fund distributions or upon redemption or sale of fund shares.

INDEX

The STOXX® Global ESG Impact Index offers exposure to a set of global, developed-market companies that is tilted towards companies scoring better with respect to a select set of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) key performance indicators (KPIs). Eligible securities are selected from the STOXX® Global 1800 Index. The bottom 50% of such companies based on their ESG KPI scores are excluded from the Index, as are companies that do not adhere to the UN Global compact principles, are involved in controversial weapons or are coal miners (ICB Subsector 1771). Components are then weighted by free-float market cap combined with a cap factor that is based on a company’s aggregate ESG KPI score. Component weightings may also be adjusted to ensure that the weight representation of each country in the Underlying Index does not vary from that in the STOXX Global 1800 Index by more than +/-1 percentage point and that the weight of a single company is less than 5% at time of each index rebalancing or reconstitution.

Index Methodology

Definitions

SEC Subsidized Yield
The 30-Day SEC Subsidized Yield is computed under an SEC standardized formula based on net income earned over the past 30 days. It is a "subsidized" yield, which means it includes contractual expense reimbursements and it would be lower without those reimbursements.
SEC Unsubsidized Yield
The 30-Day SEC Unsubsidized Yield calculation is also computed under the same SEC standardized formula based on net income earned over the past 30 days, but excludes contractual expense reimbursements, resulting in a lower yield.
Distribution Yield
This yield is calculated by taking the most recent distribution annualized and dividing by the fund NAV from the as of date. For Funds that distribute monthly, an NA will be displayed if the fund has not distributed within the last 35 days.
Premium/Discount
This is the calculation of a Fund's daily NAV (%) in comparison to the midpoint of the closing bid/ask as of 4PM ET.
Median Bid-Ask Spread
This is the calculation of a Fund's daily median bid-ask spread ($) by identifying the Fund’s National Best Bid and Offer ("NBBO") as of the end of each 10 second interval during the trading day within the last 30 calendar days, dividing the difference between such bid and offer by the midpoint of the NBBO and publishing the median of these values.
