ABOUT THE INDEX
The Inspire Corporate Bond Impact Equal Weight Index is comprised of 250 investment grade, intermediate term corporate bonds issued by some of the most inspiring large cap “blue chip” companies in the United States, as determined by Inspire’s revolutionary Inspire Impact Score methodology which measures a company’s positive impact on the world. Inspire defines “large cap” as a market capitalization of $5B or greater and “investment grade” as BBB-/Baa3 or higher. The index is equally weighted, rebalanced quarterly and calculated on a total return basis in US Dollars.

Past performance is no guarantee of future results. The performance data quoted here represents past performance. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted above. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate, so that shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.
Inspire Funds are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the fund. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns.
Market Price returns are based upon the midpoint of the bid/ask spread at 4:00 p.m. ET when NAV is normally determined for most Inspire Funds, and do not represent the returns you would receive if you traded shares at other times.

*Holdings are subject to change. Holdings and percent of assets are based on security assets only, not including cash or receiveables (unpaid interest and dividends).
1SEC Yield and Distribution Rate calculations are based on most recent Ex-Date. Distribution Rate reflects the total distributions over the previous 12 months. SEC Yield and Distribution Rate includes income, dividends, return of capital, or other distributions that are not considered short-term or long-term capital gains. Return of capital is considered a return of the investment principal and is not derived from net profits. Yield performance shown reflects fee waivers and/or expense reimbursements by the investment advisor to the fund resulting in a net expense ratio. Performance would have been lower without such waivers.

5Inspire, the adviser, provides the index for the Inspire Funds to track. The indexes uses software that analyzes publicly available data relating to the primary business activities, products and services, philanthropy, legal activities, policies and practices when assigning Inspire Impact Scores to a company. The securities with the highest Inspire Impact Scores are included in the Indexes and are equally weighted. As the Fund may not fully replicate the Index, it is subject to the risk that investment management strategy may not produce the intended results. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Investors cannot invest directly in an index and unmanaged index returns do not reflect any fees, expenses or sales charges.
The Fund may focus its investments in securities of a particular industry to the extent the Index does. This may cause the Fund's net asset value to fluctuate more than that of a fund that does not focus in a particular industry. Fixed income securities will fluctuate with changes in interest rates. Typically, a rise in interest rates causes a decline in the value of fixed income securities owned by the Fund. As the Fund may not fully replicate the Index, it is subject to the risk that investment management strategy may not produce the intended results.
The Fund is not actively managed and the Adviser will not sell shares of an equity security due to current or projected underperformance of a security, industry or sector, unless that security is removed from the Index or the selling of shares of that security is otherwise required upon a rebalancing of the Index as addressed in the Index methodology. Tracking error may occur because of imperfect correlation between the Fund’s holdings of portfolio securities and those in the Index. The Fund’s use of a representative sampling approach, if used, could result in its holding a smaller number of securities than are in the Index. To the extent the assets in the Fund are smaller, these risks will be greater.
There is no guarantee that the Funds will achieve their objective, generate positive returns, or avoid losses.

ETF shares are not redeemable with the issuing fund other than in large Creation Unit aggregations. Instead, investors must buy or sell ETF Shares in the secondary market with the assistance of a stockbroker. In doing so, the investor may incur brokerage commissions and may pay more than net asset value when buying and receive less than net asset value when selling. The NAV of the Fund’s shares is calculated each day the national securities exchanges are open for trading as of the close of regular trading on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”), normally 4:00 p.m. Eastern time (the “NAV Calculation Time”). Shares are bought and sold at market price (closing price) not NAV. Market price returns are based on the midpoint of the bid/ask spread at 4:00 pm Eastern Time (when NAV is normally determined).
An active secondary market for the Fund’s shares may not exist. Although the Fund’s shares will be listed on an exchange, subject to notice of issuance, it is possible that an active trading market may not develop or be maintained. There is no guarantee that distributions will be paid.
