National Investment Services Ultra-Short Duration Enhanced Income ETF


Fund Description

The National Investment Services Ultra-Short Duration Enhanced Income ETF (AWTM) seeks to maximize current income over the most recently issued three-month U.S. Treasury Bill while maintaining low volatility and preservation of capital. AWTM is an actively managed ETF that invests in U.S.-dollar denominated investment-grade fixed and floating rate bonds and debt securities with ultra-short maturities and overall effective duration of less than one year.

AWTM was designed with four requirements in mind: capital preservation, liquidity, yield and diversification. The Fund offers a compelling alternative to conventional cash management tools, such as money market funds, T-Bills, bank deposits and commercial paper.

Featured Benefits:

  • Actively-managed by an experienced fixed income asset management team, investing in a broad mix of investments for potential diversification benefits. Active management enables portfolio managers to respond quickly to changing interest rate environments and market conditions.
  • Aims to manage interest rate risk and market volatility due to ultra-short duration.
  • Created in an ETF structure, which typically provides daily liquidity and transparency, allows for cost-efficient implementation and execution, and tight spreads between NAV and share price.

Fund Data & Pricing


Inception Date: 01/28/2019

The performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when sold or redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost and current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Performance current to the most recent month-end can be obtained by calling 1-866-539-9530. Short term performance, in particular, is not a good indication of the fund’s future performance, and an investment should not be made based solely on returns. Returns beyond 1 year are annualized. A fund’s NAV is the sum of all its assets less any liabilities, divided by the number of shares outstanding. The market price is the most recent price at which the fund was traded. The fund intends to pay out dividends and interest income, if any, monthly. There is no guarantee these distributions will be made.
