Additional RiverShares Information and Disclosures:
RiverShares portfolios are asset allocation solutions comprised solely of actively managed ETFs that are sub-advised by RiverFront. More specifically, in order to be eligible for inclusion in the RiverShares portfolios, an ETF must be both (1) sub-advised by RiverFront, and (2) pay a sub-advisory fee of 0.35% per annum to RiverFront.
RiverFront does not earn any account-level fee with respect to any RiverShares accounts, including from a Sponsor Firm. Clients who access RiverShares portfolios through a Sponsor Firm, however, will typically pay additional fees to the Sponsor Firm. Clients should speak to their Financial Advisor for more information on such fees, as they may vary among Sponsor Firms.
While certain RiverShares, Advantage and ETF Advantage portfolios will have similar strategies and investment objectives, it is important to understand that there will be key differences between RiverShares, Advantage and ETF Advantage portfolios. Please see the descriptions provided on the Offerings page to see the differences between the different portfolio options.
RiverShares portfolios will target a 2% cash allocation and are only able to enact defensive tactical strategies by shifting portfolio assets into bond ETFs instead of cash. In periods of market decline, these portfolios may perform worse than portfolios that can have a higher allocation to cash/cash equivalents should the selected bond ETF underperform an equivalent cash allocation.
RiverFront Sub-Advised ETFs could be considered “start-up” or early stage funds with low assets under management. RiverFront might have its own seed capital invested in certain of its Sub-Advised ETFs and/or could have discretionary control of a significant amount of RiverFront client assets invested in its Sub-Advised ETFs. Withdrawing seed capital or RiverFront client assets from the Sub-Advised ETFs could disadvantage the Funds and, as a result, other investors in the Funds, including other RiverFront clients.
RiverFront’s Price Matters® discipline compares inflation-adjusted current prices relative to their long-term trend to help identify extremes in valuation.
Mean reversion is the tendency of a variable, such as a stock price, to converge on an average value over time.
