Aptus International Drawdown Managed Equity ETF

The Fund is an actively managed ETF that seeks to achieve its objective principally by investing in a portfolio of other ETFs that invest in equity securities of non-U.S. companies in developed and emerging markets throughout the world, while purchasing and/or writing exchange-listed call or put options on one or more broad-based indexes or ETFs that track the performance of equity markets outside of the United States to limit downside (“drawdown”) risk, create additional equity exposure, and/or generate premiums from writing call options on the Fund’s equity investments.


  • Exposure to a broad range of international companies, both developed and emerging markets 
  • Ability to participate when markets are rising while utilizing hedges to manage drawdown
  • Combats investors behavioral and emotional reactions

Cumulative return is the aggregate amount that an investment has gained or lost over time. Annualized Return is the average return gained or lost by an investment each year over a given time period. Performance is annualized for periods greater than 1 year.

Performance quoted represents past performance, which is no guarantee of future results. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate, so you may have a gain or loss when shares are sold. Current performance may be higher or lower than that quoted.  Short-term performance in particular is not a good indication of the fund’s future performance and an investment should not be made solely on returns.
