The Invesco VRDO Tax-Free Weekly ETF (Fund) is based on the Bloomberg US Municipal AMT-Free Weekly VRDO Index (Index). The Fund generally will invest at least 80% of its total assets in variable rate demand obligation (VRDO) bonds that are exempt from federal income tax with interest rates that reset weekly, which comprise the Underlying Index. The Index is comprised of municipal securities issued in the primary market as VRDOs.
VRDOs are floating-rate bonds that provide investors with tax-exempt income. VRDOs are generally purchased at par. When they are put back to an investment dealer, the investor generally receives par plus accrued interest. The Fund and the Index are rebalanced and reconstituted monthly.

Risk & Other Information
†Credit ratings are assigned by Nationally Recognized Statistical Rating Organizations based on assessment of the credit worthiness of the underlying bond issuers. The ratings range from AAA (highest) to D (lowest) and are subject to change. Not rated indicates the debtor was not rated, and should not be interpreted as indicating low quality. Futures and other derivatives are not eligible for assigned credit ratings by any NRSRO and are excluded from quality allocations. For more information on rating methodologies, please visit the following NRSRO websites: standardandpoors.com and select "Understanding Ratings" under Rating Resources and moodys.com and select "Rating Methodologies" under Research and Ratings.
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. The Fund is subject to certain other risks. Please see the current prospectus for more information regarding the risk associated with an investment in the Fund.
An issuer may be unable to meet interest and/or principal payments, thereby causing its instruments to decrease in value and lowering the issuer's credit rating.
Interest rate risk refers to the risk that bond prices generally fall as interest rates rise and vice versa.
Municipal securities are subject to the risk that legislative or economic conditions could affect an issuer's ability to make payments of principal and/ or interest. Municipal insurance doesn't protect against losses in the Fund.
The absence of an active secondary market for certain variable rate notes could make it difficult to dispose of the instruments, and a portfolio could suffer a loss if the issuer defaults during periods in which a portfolio is not entitled to exercise its demand rights.
There is no guarantee that the Fund's income will be exempt from federal and state income taxes.
The Fund's use of a representative sampling approach will result in its holding a smaller number of securities than are in the underlying Index, and may be subject to greater volatility.
Investments focused in a particular sector, such as healthcare, are subject to greater risk, and are more greatly impacted by market volatility, than more diversified investments.
The Fund currently intends to effect creations and redemptions principally for cash, rather than principally in-kind because of the nature of the Fund's investments. As such, investments in the Fund may be less tax efficient than investments in ETFs that create and redeem in-kind.
The Barclays Municipal 1 Year Index is an unmanaged index of municipal bonds with a remaining maturity of 1-2 years.
