Carefully consider the Funds’ investment objectives, risk factors, charges, and expenses before investing. This and additional information can be found in Amplify Funds’ statutory and summary prospectus, which may be obtained by visiting www.yieldshares.com or by calling 855-267-3837, or by visiting AmplifyETFs.com, respectively.

Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. Because the Fund is a fund of funds, its investment performance largely depends on the investment performance of the Underlying Funds in which it invests. The Fund is subject to the risks associated with the Underlying Funds, including risks related to investments in derivatives, REITs, foreign securities and municipal securities. The underlying holdings may be leveraged, which will expose the holdings to higher volatility and may accelerate losses. Bond prices generally fall as interest rates rise. High yield securities may involve greater levels of credit, liquidity and valuation risk than for higher-rated instruments. Preferred stock is subject to many of the same risks. In addition, preferred stock may not pay a dividend, an issuer may suspend payment of dividends at any time, and in certain situations an issuer may call or redeem its preferred stock or convert it to common stock. International investments may involve risk from unfavorable fluctuations in currency values, differences in generally accepted accounting principles, and from economic or political instability. There is no guarantee that the fund will meet its investment objective. The Fund will pay indirectly a proportional share of the fees and expenses of the Underlying Funds in which it invests, including their investment advisory and administration fees, in addition to its own fees and expenses. In addition, at times certain segments of the market represented by constituent Underlying Funds may be out of favor and underperform other segments.
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. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns.
