Investing in securities involves risks that you should be aware of prior to making an investment decision, including the possible loss of principal. An investment in individual stocks, or a collection of stocks focused on a particular theme or idea, such as a motif, may be subject to increased risk of price fluctuation compared to other types of holdings due to adverse developments that can affect a particular industry or sector. Investments in ETFs can include those with a narrow or targeted investment strategy and can be more vulnerable to sector risks than more broadly diversified investments.

Motif makes no representation regarding the suitability of a particular investment or investment strategy. You are responsible for all investment decisions you make, including understanding the risks involved with your investment strategy.
