Not for Everyone

The significant risks of leveraged and/or inverse ETFs include the risks of leverage, derivatives, and/or other complex investment strategies that they employ. These investments are designed for short-term or intraday trading for investors seeking daily leveraged investment results…


The Funds seek daily leveraged investment results and are intended to be used as short-term trading vehicles. The Funds pursue daily leveraged investment objectives, which means they are riskier than alternatives that do not use leverage because the Funds magnify the performance of their underlying security. The volatility of the underlying security may affect a Fund’s return as much as, or more than, the return of the underlying security.

The Fund is not suitable for all investors and should be used only by knowledgeable investors, such as traders and active investors employing dynamic strategies, who intend to use them for short-term or intraday trading to seek daily leveraged investment results seeking daily leveraged (2X) investment results, understand the risks associated with the use of leverage and are willing to monitor their portfolios frequently. The Fund is not intended to be used by, and is not appropriate for, investors who do not intend to actively monitor and manage their portfolios. For periods longer than a single day, the Fund will lose money if the ARK Innovation ETF’s performance is flat, and it is possible that the Fund will lose money even if the ARK Innovation ETF’s performance increases over a period longer than a single day. An investor could lose the full principal value of his/her investment within a single day if the ARK Innovation ETF loses more than 50% in one day. The Fund is not a complete investment program.

ETFs involve risk including possible loss of principal. There is no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objective. Principal risks and other important risks may be found in the prospectus.

Important Risk Information
The Tradr 2X Long Innovation ETF, Investment Managers Series Trust II, and AXS Investments LLC are not affiliated with the ARK ETF Trust, the ARK Innovation ETF, or ARK Investment Management LLC.
Compounding risk: The Fund has a single day investment objective, and performance for any other period is the result of its return for each day compounded over the period. Performance for periods longer than a single day will very likely differ in amount, and possibly even direction, from 200% of the daily return of the ARK Innovation ETF for the same period, before accounting for fees and expenses. Compounding affects all investments but has a more significant impact on a leveraged fund. This effect becomes more pronounced as the ARK Innovation ETF volatility and holding periods increase.
Leverage risk: Leveraged ETFs pursue daily leveraged investment objectives, which means they are riskier than alternatives that do not use leverage. They seek daily goals and should not be expected to track the underlying index over periods longer than one day.
Swap agreement risk: The Fund’s use of derivatives may be considered aggressive and may expose the Fund to greater risks and larger losses or smaller gains than investing directly in the reference asset(s) underlying those derivatives. The use of swap agreements are subject to additional risks such as the lack of regulation, counterparty risk and liquidity risk, and could expose investors to significant losses.
Equity securities risk: The value of the equity securities the Fund holds may fall due to general market and economic conditions.
The Shares will change in value, and you could lose money by investing in the Fund. The Fund may not achieve its investment objective.
ETF shares are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the ETF. There can be no guarantee that an active trading market for ETF shares will develop or be maintained, or that their listing will continue or remain unchanged. Buying or selling ETF shares on an exchange may require the payment of brokerage commissions and frequent trading may incur brokerage costs that detract significantly from investment returns.
There are risks involved with investing including the possible loss of principal. Diversification does not guarantee investment returns or eliminate the risk of loss. Past performance does not guarantee future results.
Investors should carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the fund before investing.
