The FTSE Renaissance IPO Index Series
Jointly developed by Renaissance Capital, the IPO Expert®, and Index provider FTSE Group, the FTSE Renaissance Global IPO Index series was designed to track the activity and performance of IPOs from developed and emerging markets. The Index Series is composed of a rolling two year population of IPOs and employs a float-adjusted market capitalization weighting scheme to account for only those shares that are publicly available for trading. The indices add structure and transparency to the most inefficient category of public equities, providing investors controlled access to the unique attributes and early returns of IPOs.
The FTSE Renaissance Global IPO Index Series provides total global IPO market coverage and is composed of regional (e.g. Asia Pacific), country-level (e.g. US) and strategic subsets (e.g. ex-US, Emerging Markets, capped and investable versions). Industry-level and other custom subsets are also available upon request. For more information on these indices, click on the links below, visit the

Past performance does not guarantee future results. The performance data quoted represents past performance and current returns may be lower or higher. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing.
As stated in the Prospectus, the total annual operating expenses for the Fund was 3.48%. The Adviser has contractually agreed to keep net expenses from exceeding 2.50% of the Fund’s average daily net assets for at least a year from the date of the Prospectus and for an indefinite period thereafter subject to annual re-approval of the agreement by the Board of Trustees.
An investor cannot invest directly in an index. Index returns do not represent Fund returns. The Index does not charge management fees or brokerage expenses, nor does the Index lend securities, and no revenues from securities lending were added to the performance shown.

Investments in the
Renaissance IPO ETF, symbol "IPO"
Renaissance International IPO ETF, symbol "IPOS"
(the “ETFs”), and the
Global IPO Fund, symbol "IPOSX"
(the “Mutual Fund”) are subject to investment risk, including possible loss of the principal amounts invested. The ETFs and the Mutual Fund (the “Funds”) invest in companies that have recently completed initial public offerings. These stocks are unseasoned equities lacking trading history, a track record of reporting to investors and widely available research coverage which many result in extreme price volatility. Due to a greater number of IPOs in certain segments, the Funds may also be subject to information technology and financial sector risk, small and mid-capitalization company risk, and, for the Renaissance International IPO ETF, emerging markets risk. The Funds may hold securities in the form of Depository Receipts, REITs, and Partnership Units which have greater risks than common shares. The strategies have high portfolio turnover and securities lending risks. The returns of the ETFs may not match the return of the respective indices. The ETFs are classified as non-diversified investment companies subject to concentration risk.
