Monthly Standardized Report

Underlying Index returns shown are price return.

Market returns are based on the midpoint of the bid/ask spread at 4 p.m. ET and do not represent the returns an investor would receive if shares were traded at other times. Performance data quoted represents past performance, which is not a guarantee of future results. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate, and shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be higher or lower than performance data quoted. After-tax returns reflect the highest federal income tax rate but exclude state and local taxes. Fund performance reflects fee waivers, absent which, performance data quoted would have been lower. After Tax Held and After Tax Sold are based on NAV.

Fund Inception: 10/24/2006

Shareholders may pay more than net asset value when they buy Fund shares and receive less than net asset value when they sell those shares, because shares are bought and sold at current market prices. Performance data quoted represents past performance, which is not a guarantee of future results.


 Risk & Other Information

Typically, security classifications used in calculating allocation tables are as of the last trading day of the previous month.

There are risks involved with investing in ETFs, including possible loss of money. Shares are not actively managed and are subject to risks similar to those of stocks, including those regarding short selling and margin maintenance requirements. Ordinary brokerage commissions apply. The Fund's return may not match the return of the Underlying Index.

Securities lending involves a risk of loss because the borrower may fail to return the securities in a timely manner or at all. If a Fund is unable to recover the securities loaned, it may sell the collateral and purchase a replacement security in the market. Lending securities entails a risk of loss to the Funds if and to the extent that the market value of the loaned securities increases and the collateral is not increased accordingly.

Equity risk is the risk that the value of equity securities, including common stocks, may fall due to both changes in general economic and political conditions that impact the market as a whole, as well as factors that directly relate to a specific company or its industry.

Investing in securities of small and medium-sized companies may involve greater risk than is customarily associated with investing in large companies.

Investments focused in a particular industry or sector, such as the cleantech sector are subject to greater risk, and are more greatly impacted by market volatility, than more diversified investments.

Foreign securities have additional risks, including exchange-rate changes, decreased market liquidity, political instability and taxation by foreign governments.

The NASDAQ Composite Index measures all NASDAQ domestic and international-based common stocks listed on The Nasdaq Stock Market. The S&P 500® Index is an unmanaged index considered representative of the U.S. stock market.

The Global Industry Classification Standard was developed by and is the exclusive property and a service mark of MSCI, Inc. and Standard & Poor's.

The product is not sponsored, endorsed, sold or promoted by Cleantech Indices LLC, and Cleantech makes no representation regarding the advisability of investing in this Fund.
