Fund Description and Objectives

The Democracy International Fund is a Global Markets ex United States Large & Mid Cap international equity portfolio that is both democracy and market capitalization weighted.

The Democracy International Fund ETF is an international index fund that is both democracy and market capitalization weighted. The Global Markets ex United States Large & Mid Cap international equity portfolio is in both developed and emerging markets.

The Democracy International Fund ETF seeks to track the total return performance, before fees and expenses, of the Democracy Investments International Index.

Our democracy weighted index aligns the portfolio with country democracy scores, resulting in higher allocations in democratic countries and lower in authoritarian regimes.

The intent of the Fund is to enable investors to allocate more into democracies thereby shifting capital flows toward democratic countries and away from authoritarian countries. This could lower the cost of capital and improve economic growth for democracies and the opposite for authoritarians, resulting in market-based incentives for democratic reforms.

The Fund’s portfolio uses a representative sampling investment approach and holds:

  • Securities of the index constituents, consisting of common stocks and American Depositary Receipts (“ADRs”) of large- and medium-capitalization international companies.
  • Shares of exchange traded funds (“ETFs”), in combination such that the Fund’s returns are expected to correspond generally to the Index’s returns, country and sector weightings, and other characteristics such as market capitalization.
  • As the Fund grows, shares of ETFs may be replaced with more securities of the index constituents.

The performance quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's when sold or redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Returns for periods of less than one year are not annualized. The market price returns are based on the official closing price of an ETF share or, if the official closing price isn't available, the midpoint between the national best bid and national best offer (“NBBO”) as of the time the ETF calculates current NAV per share, and do not represent the returns you would receive if you traded shares at other times. NAVs are calculated using prices as of (4:00 PM Eastern Time).
