Quarterly recap



Current market environment performance of dynamic, risk-managed investment solutions.

Seven products were removed due to delisting, while 11 products were removed due to improved health.

Among the additions, 22 were due to low trading volume. Three additions were due to low assets under management (“AUM”). Low volume and/or AUM could indicate these ETFs may be at risk of closure, though low volume could also be due to the nature of the investment.
