Madison Dividend Value ETF
An active income solution that employs a relative yield and high-quality approach to mitigate risk while pursuing an above-market dividend yield.
Objective and Strategy
The Dividend Value ETF seeks to produce current income while providing an opportunity for capital appreciation. To pursue this objective, the ETF invests in equity securities of companies with a market capitalization of over $1 billion. The ETF’s portfolio managers will identify investment opportunities by screening for companies that generally have a dividend yield greater than the S&P 500 Index, a strong balance sheet, and a dividend that has been maintained and which they believe is likely to increase.
Why Madison Dividend Value ETF
Performance quoted represents past performance. Past performance does not guarantee and is not a reliable indicator of future results. Investment returns and principal values will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than that shown.
Investment returns assume all distributions are reinvested and reflect all applicable fees and expenses. Benchmark index returns assume all distributions are reinvested. Indexes are unmanaged and, therefore, have no fees. Investors cannot invest directly in an index.
An investment in the fund is subject to risk and there can be no assurance the fund will achieve its investment objective. The risks associated with an investment in the fund can increase during times of significant market volatility. The principal risks of investing in the fund include: equity risk, growth and value investing risk, special risks associated with dividend paying stocks, option risk, interest rate risk, capital gain realization risks to taxpaying shareholders, and foreign security and emerging market risk. More detailed information regarding these risks can be found in the fund’s prospectus.

The net asset value (“NAV”) per share for each fund and class is determined each business day at the close of regular trading on the New York Stock Exchange (typically 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time) by dividing the net assets of each fund and class by the number of shares outstanding of that fund and class.
Shares of any ETF are bought and sold at market price (not NAV), may trade at a discount or premium to NAV and are not individually redeemed from the Fund.
