We believe that WBIY’s multi-factor, actively rebalanced process is the most advanced Smart Beta approach in the marketplace today – one that is designed to help solve an investor’s need for high current income, inflation protection, and consistent capital growth. So how does WBIY work?
Watch the video to find out.
WBIY is designed to track the Solactive Power Factor High Dividend Index. The Index screens for securities based on three fundamental value characteristics, or “Power Factors”:
The goal of the Solactive Power Factor High Dividend Index and WBIY product design is to improve performance through superior security selection.

The process identifies the “Top 50” highest dividend-yielding U.S. common stocks that also have high quality fundamentals.
The performance data quoted represents past performance and is not a guarantee of future results. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted. For most recent month-end performance, please click here.
An investment in the Fund is subject to investment risk, including the possible loss of principal amount invested. Common stocks are susceptible to general stock market fluctuations and to volatile increases and decreases in value as market confidence in and perceptions of their issuers change. High yielding stocks are often speculative, high risk investments. These companies can be paying out more than they can support and may reduce their dividends or stop paying dividends at any time, which could have a material adverse effect on the stock price of these companies and the Fund’s performance. The Fund is not actively managed and the Sub-Advisor does not attempt to take defensive positions in declining markets. Unlike many investment companies, the Fund does not utilize an investing strategy that seeks returns in excess of its Underlying Index. There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve a high degree of correlation to the Underlying Index and therefore achieve its investment objective. Market disruptions and regulatory restrictions could have an adverse effect on the Fund’s ability to adjust its exposure to the required levels in order to track the Underlying Index. Other Fund risks include but are not limited to concentration risk, cyber security risk, small and mid-cap risk, tracking error risk, premium/discount risk, and valuation risk. Additional details regarding the risks of the Fund can be found in the prospectus.
