An investor should consider the investment objective, risks, and charges and expenses of the Funds before investing. The prospectus contains this and other information about the Fund. A copy of the prospectus is available at www.obrafunds.com or by calling Shareholder Services at 1-800-773-3863. The prospectus should be read carefully before investing. Current and future holdings are subject to change and risks.

An investment in the Funds is subject to investment risks, including the possible loss of some or the entire principal amount invested. There can be no assurance that the Funds will be successful in meeting their investment objectives. Investments in the Funds are also subject to the following risks: Structured Products Risk: The structured products may include investments in securitizations and other asset-back securities. Among other risks, the products (i) are subject to the risks associated with the underlying assets; (ii) will often be leveraged, which will generally magnify the opportunities for gain and risk of loss; (iii) are highly complex, which may cause disputes as to their terms and impact the valuation and liquidity of such positions; and (iv) often contain significant obstacles to asserting “putback” or similar claims against the products. Mortgage- and Asset-Backed Securities: MBS are subject to “prepayment risk” (when interest rates fall, certain types of obligations will be paid off by the obligor more quickly than originally anticipated, and the Fund may have to invest the proceeds in securities with lower yields) and “extension risks” (when interest rates rise, certain obligations will be paid off by the obligor more slowly than anticipated causing the value of these securities to fall). While shares of the funds are tradable on secondary markets, they may not readily trade in all market conditions and may trade at significant discounts in periods of market stress. ETFs trade like stocks, are subject to investment risks, fluctuate in market value, and may trade at prices above or below the ETFs net asset value. Brokerage commissions and ETF expenses will reduce returns. More information about these risks can be found in the Funds’ prospectus.

The Obra ETFs are distributed by Capital Investment Group, Inc., Member FINRA/SIPC, 100 E. Six Forks Road, Suite 200, Raleigh, NC 27069. There is no affiliation between Obra Capital Inc., Obra Fund Management, LLC, including their principals, and Capital Investment Group, Inc. RCOBR0424003
