Designed to provide exposure to high-quality dividend growers in the fast-growing Asia-Pacific region.

The Case for Asian Dividends

The Asia Pacific region contains a third of the world’s population and is home to some of the most dynamic economies. Asian economies have diversified and matured over the past two decades, leading to potential high-quality income opportunities.

Why is ADIV a Potentially Good Investment Idea

Investors looking to add quality income to their portfolios from rapidly expanding ex-US countries should consider ADIV as a possible way to diversify and increase their investment in the Asian Pacific region.

Fund Description

  • ADIV seeks opportunities for income creation by focusing on high-quality dividend growth, as opposed to just companies paying a high yield.
  • The Fund aims to provide investors with exposure to Asian equities through a high conviction, low-turnover portfolio of consistently profitable dividend-paying companies.
  • We believe consistent high return on capital is a good indication of a company’s durability and its ability to pay healthy dividends.
  • ADIV invests in companies that consistently generate returns on capital above their cost of capital.

Based on Risk Adjusted returns.

Performance data quoted represents past performance and is no guarantee of future results. Investment returns and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than quoted. Performance data for the most recent month-end is available above.

The SmartETFs Asia Pacific Dividend Builder ETF acquired the assets and liabilities of the predecessor mutual fund, the Guinness Atkinson Asia Pacific Dividend Builder Fund, on March 26, 2021. As a result of the transaction, the Fund adopted the accounting and performance history of its predecessor mutual fund. Performance results shown prior to March 26, 2021, reflect the performance of the predecessor mutual fund. The Market Price returns shown prior to March 26, 2021 reflects the predecessor mutual fund’s NAV.

Market Price: The current price at which shares are bought and sold. Market returns are based upon the last trade price.

NAV: The dollar value of a single share, based on the value of the underlying assets of the fund minus its liabilities, divided by the number of shares outstanding. Calculated at the end of each business day.

Shares of ETFs are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns. SmartETFs NAVs are calculated using prices as of 4:00 PM Eastern Time. The closing price is the Mid-Point between the Bid and Ask price as of the close of exchange. Closing price returns do not represent the returns you would receive if you traded shares at other times.

Effective as of the close of business on March 26, 2021, the fund acquired the assets and assumed the performance, financial and other historical information of the Guinness Atkinson Asia Pacific Dividend Builder Fund, an open-end mutual fund (incepted March 31, 2006). The fund’s investment objectives, strategies and policies are substantially similar to those of the predecessor mutual fund and it was managed by the same portfolio managers. Performance information for periods prior to March 26, 2021 is the historical performance of the predecessor mutual fund and reflects the higher operating expenses of the predecessor mutual fund. The fund has lower expenses than the predecessor mutual fund (including a lower management fee). For periods prior to March 29, 2021, the fund’s performance would have been higher than shown had it operated with the fund’s current expense levels.

Foreign Securities & Emerging Markets Risk. Investments in foreign securities involve greater volatility, political, economic and currency risks and differences in accounting methods. These risks are greater for emerging markets countries. For more information on the risks of investing in this Fund, please see the prospectus.

Morningstar Ratings™ Disclosure

The Morningstar Rating™ for funds, or “star rating,” is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product’s monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods.
