Scientific Beta U.S. ETF

Fund Summary

The Global X Scientific Beta U.S. ETF (SCIU) seeks to outperform cap weighted indexes with similar volatility through a multi-factor investment strategy rooted in academic research.

Fund Objective

The Global X Scientific Beta U.S. ETF (SCIU) seeks to provide investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield performance, before fees and expenses, of the Scientific Beta United States Multi-Beta Multi-Strategy Four-Factor Equal Risk Contribution (ERC) Index.


Outperformance Potential

Rooted in Academic Research

The methodology behind Scientific Beta was developed by the EDHEC Risk-Institute in France, a leading academic institution for applied research in finance.

Cumulative return is the aggregate amount that an investment has gained or lost over time. Annualized Return is the average return gained or lost by an investment each year over a given time period.

The performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when sold or redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost and current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted.

Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal.

Shares of ETFs are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns. Global X NAVs are calculated using prices as of 4:00 PM Eastern Time. The closing price is the Mid-Point between the Bid and Ask price as of the close of exchange. Closing price returns do not represent the returns you would receive if you traded shares at other times. Indices are unmanaged and do not include the effect of fees, expenses or sales charges. One cannot invest directly in an index.

Carefully consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risks, and charges and expenses before investing. This and other information can be found in the Fund’s summary or full prospectuses. Please read the prospectus carefully before investing.
