McElhenny Sheffield Managed Risk ETF 

A tactical investing strategy based on the combination of McElhenny Sheffield’s Trend Plus and Sector Rotation strategies. Trend Plus is a rules-based trend following strategy that strives to participate in market upside while avoiding the downside. Sector Rotation is a rules-based momentum strategy that capitalizes on sectors with strong momentum and aims to avoid sectors and markets that exhibit weakness.


  • Provide investors with access to disciplined trend following and momentum strategies having defined allocations and trading rules.
  • Use of a fully tactical quantitative approach gives MSMR the opportunity to adjust and invest appropriately for each market environment.
  • Both strategies are focused on delivering growth, but with an emphasis on risk management through stop loss techniques and use of defensive allocations.
  • Combination strategy offers built-in diversification to two powerful market characteristics: momentum and trend.

The following Frequency Distribution of Premiums and Discounts chart is provided to show the frequency at which the closing price of the Fund was at a premium (above) or discount (below) to their daily net asset value (NAV).

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 lower or higher 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.

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.
