Investors should carefully consider the investment objectives and risks as well as charges and expenses of the Clough Long/Short Equity ETF and Clough Select Equity ETF (each a “Fund” and collectively, the “Clough Capital ETFs” or the “Funds”), which are managed by Clough Capital Partners L.P. ("Clough Capital" or the “Firm”), before investing. This and other information are contained in the Funds’ prospectuses, which may be obtained by clicking here. The prospectus should be read carefully before investing.
An investment in the Funds is subject to risks and you can lose money on your investment in a Clough Capital ETF. There can be no assurance that the Funds will achieve their investment objectives. Clough Capital ETFs are more volatile than broad market averages. Clough Capital ETFs also have specific risks, which are described in the Funds’ prospectuses.
Shares of the Funds may be bought or sold throughout the day at their market price on the exchange on which they are listed. The market price of a Fund’s shares may be at, above or below a Fund’s net asset value ("NAV") and will fluctuate with changes in the NAV as well as supply and demand in the market for the shares. The market price of a Fund’s shares may differ significantly from their NAV during periods of market volatility. Shares of the Funds may only be redeemed directly at NAV by Authorized Participants, in very large creation units. There can be no guarantee that an active trading market for the Funds’ shares will develop or be maintained, or that their listing will continue or remain unchanged. Buying or selling shares of the Funds on an exchange may require the payment of brokerage commissions and frequent trading may incur brokerage costs that detract significantly from investment returns.
Short selling involves the sale of securities borrowed from a third party. The short seller profits if the borrowed security’s price declines. If a shorted security increases in value, a higher price must be paid to buy the stock back to cover the short sale, resulting in a loss. The Clough Capital ETFs may incur expenses related to short selling, including compensation, interest or dividends, and transaction costs payable to the security lender, whether the price of the shorted security increases or decreases. The amount the Clough Capital ETFs could lose on a short sale is theoretically unlimited. Short selling also involves counterparty risk – the risk associated with the third-party ceasing operations or failing to sell the security back.
ESG investing involves additional risk, including the risks stemming from the ESG factors that the Strategy applies in selecting holdings. The strategy intends to invest in companies with measurable high ESG ratings relative to their sector peers, and screen out particular companies that do not meet their ESG criteria, which may affect the strategy’s exposure to certain companies or industries and cause the foregoing of certain investment opportunities. The strategy’s returns may be lower than other funds that do not seek to invest in companies based on ESG ratings and/or screen out certain companies or industries. Clough Capital seeks to identify companies that it believes may have higher ESG ratings, but investors may differ in their views of ESG characteristics. As a result, the strategy may invest in companies that do not reflect the beliefs and values of any particular investor.
The Clough Capital ETFs are distributed by Vigilant Distributors, LLC. Clough Capital Partners L.P. is not affiliated with Vigilant Distributors, LLC.

Nothing on this website is to be considered investment advice and is not to be relied upon as the basis for entering into any transaction or advisory relationship or making any investment decision. All investments involve the risk of loss, including the loss of principal. The website includes data, graphs, charts, or other material reflecting the performance of a security, an index, an investment vehicle, a composite or other instrument over time. Past performance is not an indication of future results.
Gross performance is defined as the performance results of a portfolio before the deduction of all fees and expenses. Net performance is defined as the performance results of a portfolio after the deduction of all fees and expenses that a client or investor has paid or would have paid in connection with the adviser’s services to the relevant portfolio, including, if applicable, advisory fees, advisory fees paid to underlying investment vehicles, and payments by the investment adviser for which the client or investor reimburses the investment adviser. Custodian fees paid to a bank or other third-party organization for safekeeping funds and securities may be excluded from the calculation of net performance. Actual client portfolios are subject to the deduction of various fees and expenses which would lower returns. Advisory fees charged to Clough Capital clients, whether directly or indirectly through an ETF, are described in Clough Capital's Form ADV Part 2 and Part 3 available at https://adviserinfo.sec.gov/firm/summary/131257.
This website includes historical performance information from various stock market indices. Market performance information is included on this site solely to demonstrate the potential benefits historically associated with diversification of asset classes and does not represent or suggest results Clough Capital would or may have achieved when managing client portfolios. Investors cannot invest in a market index directly, and the performance of an index does not represent any actual Fund performance. The performance of an index does not include the deduction of various fees and expenses which would lower returns. Historical stock market information is obtained from U.S. Bank.

For the purposes of the European Data Privacy Laws, the Firm is the data controller in relation to the processing activities described herein. This means that the Firm decides why and how any personal data is used. All personal data provided to us by clients or prospective clients located within the European Economic Area (the “EEA”) may be retained in the United States, processed in the United States by the Firm or its agents, and may also be transferred to other countries outside the EEA. Not all countries have similar data protection laws to those of the EEA, and even countries that do have data protection laws may have less robust provisions than those of the EEA.
Certain information collected by the Firm may be “nonpublic personal information” or “NPI” and, as such, subject to Regulation S-P. For more information on how we collect, use and share NPI, please see the Firm’s Privacy Notice, available by calling the Firm at 617-204-3400.

In this event, the Firm may provide additional information to clients or prospective clients that it believes may be of interest, including about services, news updates, research or market commentary, conferences, or events offered by or in conjunction with the Firm. A client/relevant individual whose email address is used for such communications has the right to unsubscribe by contacting the Firm or by following the instructions in any such communication, e.g., by clicking on an embedded link to unsubscribe.

Sharing of personal information:
Like other financial companies, the Firm needs to share some of our clients’ information to run our business.

In addition, to comply with Massachusetts Data Security Regulation and other applicable laws, the Firm has developed a process to ensure confidentiality and integrity of personal information maintained by the Firm and its administrators that could create the risk of identity theft or fraud against a resident of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and have codified the policies and procedures in writing.
Your California Privacy Rights:
The Firm complies with the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) by providing California residents with the following rights with respect to their personal information:
When California residents exercise these rights and submit a request, the Firm will verify their identity by asking them for their email address, telephone number, and/or information about their account with the Firm. The Firm will endeavor to honor customers’ requests unless such a request conflicts with certain lawful exemptions under the CCPA. Please note that the Firm is only required to honor such requests twice in a twelve (12) month-long period.
Any exercise of these rights will have no adverse effect on the price and quality of the Firm’s services.
For the twelve (12) month-long period prior to the date of this Privacy Notice, the Firm has not sold any personal information about its customers; nor does it have any plans to do so in the future.
