<strong>About The ETF</strong>

Every quarter Wall Street analysts forecast company earnings. Every day SENT uses Alpha DNA’s proprietary quantitative research platform to analyze the digital properties and financial fundamentals of these companies. By deploying machine learning, SENT seeks to uncover the digital sentiment of companies and invests in those anticipated to surprise the market with breakout performance. And because markets are uncertain, SENT’s portfolio is managed for downside risk with a hedging strategy designed to offset losses in a material market sell off.

<strong>Why Invest in SENT?</strong>
  • Capital Appreciation from Competitive Stock Returns – Uses cutting-edge research that seeks to uncover companies with revenue upside that are under-estimated by Wall Street analysts.
  • Downside Protection from Hedging – Looks to reduce the severity of losses during market corrections using a put options overlay strategy on broad market indices or ETFs.
  • Stops the Need for Market Timing – Keeps you fully invested to provide equity participation in bull markets while mitigating losses when markets turn bearish.
<strong>Where Can SENT Fit in a Traditional Portfolio?</strong>
SENT can be used as a core equity position that also seeks to reduce market risk exposure.
<strong>Key Attributes</strong>
  • SENT invests in a portfolio of U.S. small, mid, and large cap stocks while using a disciplined options hedging strategy to reduce downside risk.
  • Always invested to ensure the portfolio is participating in the long-term growth opportunity of equities.
  • Always hedged to help prevent severe portfolio losses during volatile market corrections.
  • Goal is to outperform the Russell 3000 Index on a risk adjusted basis over a full market cycle with lower volatility than traditional long-only equity strategies.
  • Options are used for risk mitigation, not leverage.
  • Uses a proprietary quantitative, repeatable process to actively manage the portfolio.

Fund Distributions

      • Before investing you should carefully consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. This and other information is in the prospectus, a copy of which may be obtained by visiting the Fund’s website at www.AdvisorShares.com. Please read the prospectus carefully before you invest. Foreside Fund Services, LLC, Distributor.
      •  
      • Investing involves risk including possible loss of principal. The Sub-Advisor continuously evaluates the Fund’s holdings, purchases and sales with a goal of achieving its investment objective, which is not guaranteed, and judgments about the markets, the economy, or companies may not anticipate actual market movements, economic conditions or company performance. Security prices of small and mid-cap companies may be more volatile than those of larger companies and therefore the Fund’s share price may be more volatile than those of funds that invest a larger percentage of their assets in securities issued by larger-cap companies.

         Options Risk. Selling (writing) and buying options are speculative activities and entail greater than ordinary investment risks. The Fund’s use of put options can lead to losses because of adverse movements in the price or value of the underlying asset, which may be magnified by certain features of the options. When selling a put option, the Fund will receive a premium; however, this premium may not be enough to offset a loss incurred by the Fund if the price of the underlying asset is below the strike price by an amount equal to or greater than the premium. Purchasing of put options involves the payment of premiums, which may adversely affect the Fund’s performance. Purchasing a put option gives the purchaser of the option the right to sell a specified quantity of an underlying asset at a fixed exercise price over a defined period of time. Purchased put options may expire unexercised, resulting in the Fund’s loss of the premium it paid for the option.
