Objective

Seeks total return which exceeds the total return of the S&P 500 Index.

Summary

The Fund employs a U.S. equity sector rotation strategy, seeking to invest in the securities that correspond to the four "cheapest" sectors of the U.S. large-cap equity market. The Fund is rebalanced on a monthly basis to create an investment return that approximates that of the CAPE® Index (Shiller Barclays CAPE® U.S. Sector TR Index).

The CAPE® Index aims to identify undervalued sectors based on a modified CAPE® ratio and then uses a momentum factor to seek to mitigate the effects of potential value traps.

More Information About VIIV

Bid/Ask Spread - The amount by which the ask price exceeds the bid price for an asset in the market. The bid-ask spread is essentially the difference between the highest price that a buyer is willing to pay for an asset and the lowest price that a seller is willing to accept.

Net Asset Value (NAV) – the price per share of the fund on a specific date or time. The NAV is the value of a fund's assets minus the value of its liabilities.

Closing Price – The final market price at which the fund traded at the end of the trading day. The closing price is considered the most accurate valuation of a security until trading resumes on the next trading day.

Premium/Discount – A premium or discount to the net asset value (NAV) occurs when the market price of an ETF on the exchange rises above or falls below its NAV. If the market price is higher than the NAV, the ETF is said to be trading at a "premium." If the price is lower, it is trading at a "discount."

Verified Intraday Indicative Value (VIIV) Price Calculation & Methodology

Trading Hours and Publication Frequency
The VIIV will be published every second during regular US market trading hours through the Consolidated Tape Association ("CTA"). The VIIV will not publish when the US exchanges are closed due to holiday or other extraordinary events. Trading hours for regular trading days are 9:30-4:00 EST.

Price Source and Methodology
The pricing source used to calculate the VIIV will be the midpoint of the national best bid and national best offer ("NBBO") of each portfolio security as published on the consolidated tape. The VIIV is calculated by taking the sum of the product of the market price of every component in the ETF's portfolio and the number of shares in the ETF of the respective component, adding portfolio cash and then subsequently dividing the sum by the number of ETF shares outstanding.

VIIV = ΣPortfolio Security Shares x NBBO Mid Price) + Portfolio Cash/ Number of ETF Shares Outstanding

The VIIV is calculated on two independent pricing engines (referred to as: "VIIV1", "VIIV2"). VIIV1 will be transmitted to the exchange. VIIV2 is used for verification.

There are currently no halted securities.

Security Halting Procedures
A verification process compares the output of VIIV1 And VIIV2 values and there are two independent checks that occur:

  • In the event the values differ by more than 25bps (0.25%) for more than 60 consecutive seconds, a trading halt for the ETF Shares will be sent to the exchange. Once the two values return to a range within 25bps, the exchange is notified to remove the trading halt on the ETF shares.
  • If more than 10% (by weight) of the ETF's portfolio components do not have market quotations readily available, a trading halt of the ETF shares will be transmitted to the exchange. Once the weight of stocks without a quoted price drops below 10%, the exchange is notified to remove the trading halt of the ETF shares.

Performance & Characteristics

The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. Current performance of the fund may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Performance current to the most recent month-end may be obtained by calling (213) 633-8200 or by visiting www.doubleline.com.

The Verified Intraday Indicative Value (VIIV)
Unlike traditional ETFs, the fund does not tell the public what assets it holds each day. Instead, the fund provides a verified intraday indicative value (VIIV), calculated and disseminated every second throughout the trading day by the fund’s listing exchange or by market data vendors or other information providers. For example, the VIIV can be found on Yahoo Finance (https://finance.yahoo.com) by typing “^CAPE-IV” (Shiller CAPE U.S. Equities ETF) in the search box labeled “Quote Lookup.” The VIIV is based on the current market value of the securities in the fund’s portfolio on that day. The VIIV is intended to provide investors and other market participants with a highly correlated per share value of the underlying portfolio that can be compared to the current market price. The specific methodology for calculating the fund’s VIIV is available below.

Methodology for Calculating the VIIV
To calculate the VIIV, the fund employs two separate calculation engines to provide two independently calculated sources of intraday indicative values (calculation engines). The fund then uses a pricing verification agent to continuously compare the data from both the calculations engines on a real time basis. If during the process of real time price verification, the indicative values from the calculation engines differ by more than 25 basis points for 60 consecutive seconds, the pricing verification agent will alert the advisor, and the advisor will request that the Listing Exchange halt trading of the fund’s shares until the two indicative values come back into line. This “circuit breaker” is designed to prevent the VIIV from reflecting outlier prices.

The VIIV is designed to provide sufficient information to allow for an effective arbitrage mechanism that will keep the market price of the fund’s shares trading at or close to the underlying NAV per share of the fund. Shares traded on an intraday basis on an exchange, however, will not have a fixed relationship to the previous day’s or the current day’s NAV. There is, however, a risk, which may increase during periods of market disruption or volatility, that market prices will vary significantly from the underlying NAV of a fund. Similarly, because the fund’s shares trade with reference to a published VIIV, they may trade at a wider bid/ask spread when compared to shares of ETFs that publish their portfolios on a daily basis, especially during periods of market disruption or volatility, and therefore, may cost investors more to trade. Although the fund seeks to benefit from keeping its portfolio information secret, some market participants may attempt to use information, including the VIIV, to identify the fund’s trading strategy and the securities held by the fund, which if successful, could result in such market participants engaging in certain predatory trading practices that may have the potential to harm the fund and its shareholders.

Because the shares of the fund are traded in the secondary market, a broker may charge a commission to execute a transaction in shares, and an investor also may incur the cost of the spread between the price at which a dealer will buy shares and the somewhat higher price at which a dealer will sell shares.

Investing in ETFs involves additional risks such as the market price of the shares may trade at a discount to its net asset value ("NAV"), an active secondary trading market may not develop or be maintained, or trading may be halted by the exchange in which they trade, which may impact a fund's ability to sell its shares.

Equities may decline in value due to both real and perceived general market, economic and industry conditions.

The fund is a “non-diversified” investment company and therefore may invest a greater percentage of its assets in the securities of a single issuer or a limited number of issuers than funds that are “diversified.” Accordingly, the fund is more susceptible to risks associated with a single economic, political or regulatory occurrence than a diversified fund might be.
