The Simplify Interest Rate Hedge ETF (PFIX) seeks to hedge interest rate movements arising from rising long-term interest rates, and to benefit from market stress when fixed income volatility increases, while providing the potential for income.

T­he fund holds a large position in over-the-counter (OTC) interest rate options intended to provide a direct and transparent convex exposure to large upward moves in interest rates and interest rate volatility.

Using OTC derivatives, usually only available to institutional investors, PFIX is designed to be functionally similar to owning a position in long-dated put options on 20-year US Treasury bonds. Since the option position is held for an extended period, the ETF provides a simple and transparent interest rate hedge.

*Rule 6c-11 under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “1940 Act”), requires an ETF to disclose on its website when its premium or discount has exceeded 2% for seven consecutive trading days and provide a discussion of the factors that are reasonably believed to have materially contributed to the premium or discount. It is expected that PFIX may trade at greater than 2% premium to its net asset value under most circumstances because of typical bid-offer spreads for OTC products and a credit support annex that is specific to a 1940 Act company. In periods of outflows, it is expected that PFIX may trade at greater than 2% discount to its net asset value for the same reason. These variations in premium or discount may have disparate effects on certain investors. Shareholders who purchase shares on the secondary market at a premium to NAV may lose disproportionate value should PFIX begin trading at a discount. Similarly, Authorized Participants who wish to redeem creation units at NAV may receive a basket with a per share value below that of the current trading price of PFIX.
