The ITEQ ETF is the first to allow investors to exclusively invest in the Israeli technology sector. The ETF is based on the TA-BIGITech™ index, which utilizes a proprietary index construction methodology to offer the broadest, deepest and most diversified exposure to the Israeli technology sector.
While a limit price order will not guarantee an execution, it could offer the investor more protection from an unfavorable execution price, especially on the market open.
Currently, there are no currently options listed for ITEQ Partners’ ETF.
The Fund pays dividends, if any, from its net investment income to investors at least quarterly. Each Fund distributes net capital gains, if any, annually.
Brokers may make available to their customers who own a Fund’s shares the DTC book-entry dividend reinvestment service. If this service is available and used, dividend distributions of both income and capital gains will automatically be reinvested in additional whole shares of that Fund. Without this service, investors would receive their distributions in cash.
Authorized Participants are entities selected by an ETF’s sponsor, generally market makers and large institutional organizations, who are allowed to create and redeem shares of an ETF.
In the event of a creation, the Authorized Participant acquires the individual constituents that the ETF is comprised of on the open market, and deposits them with the custodian, which in turn issues the Authorized Participant the corresponding amount of Creation Units of the ETF (each Creation Unit is the equivalent of 50,000 shares of said ETF). The mechanics of the redemption process are the opposite in that the Authorized Participant deposits Creation Units of the ETF with the custodian in exchange for the individual constituents.
Due to the index investment nature of ETFs, they tend to experience lower portfolio turnover, making them less likely to realize capital gains, which must be paid to investors on an annual basis. Additionally, by only allowing for the creation and redemption of funds by Authorized Participants at Creation Unit multiples, fewer taxable events occur in the day-to-day portfolio management. When fund creation/redemption transactions are of the in-kind security variety, the result is a non-taxable event for the fund.
A 1099 form will be issued by your broker.
Global ETFs provide exposure to the currencies associated with the markets of each underlying security and therefore, are not hedged to the US dollar. However, in global ETFs, underlying components of US traded securities have US dollar exposure.
As described in the prospectus, the NAV is calculated by a standard methodology. Typically this is set when the ETF’s underlying securities’ markets close. The closing market price however is the recorded last price of the trading day. This price tends to reflect the supply and demand at the time of market close. The ITEQ ETF Partners’ ETF can trade as late as 4:00 p.m. ET during the normal trading day session, however, in light volume ETFs, its last trade can occur much earlier in the day.
The closing price listed on the Fund pages is the primary closing price on the primary exchange that the fund trades on.
