The Simplify Nasdaq 100 PLUS Downside Convexity ETF (QQD) seeks to provide capital appreciation by tracking a commonly held basket of large cap US growth stocks while aiming to boost performance during extreme market moves down via a systematic options overlay.  
The fund’s core holding provides investors with Nasdaq 100 Index exposure. A modest option overlay budget is then deployed into a series of options positions that help create downside convexity in the fund.

The Fund’s adviser has contractually agreed to reduce its management fees, until at least October 31, 2022, to 0.45% of the Fund’s average daily net assets.

Management Fees

This table describes the fees and expenses that you may pay if you buy, sell, and hold shares of the Fund. Investors purchasing or selling shares of the Fund in the secondary market may be subject to costs (including customary brokerage commissions) charged by their broker. The fee table located in the prospectus and updates in prospectus supplements prevail.

Annual Fund Operating Expenses (expenses that you pay each year as a percentage of the value of your investment)
Management Fees 0.50%
Distribution and Service (12b-1) Fees 0.00%
Acquired Fund Fees and Expenses1 0.20%
Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses 0.70%
Fee Waiver and Reimbursement2 (0.25%)
Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses After Fee Waiver 0.45%
1. Acquired Fund Fees and Expenses are the indirect costs of investing in other investment companies. The operating expenses in this fee table will not correlate to the expense ratio in the Fund's financial highlights located in the prospectus because the financial statements include only the direct operating expenses incurred by the Fund.

2. The Fund’s adviser has contractually agreed, until at least October 31, 2022, to waive its management fees and/or pay or absorb the Fund’s expenses, in order to limit the amount of “Specified Expenses” borne by the Fund to 0.25% of the Fund’s average daily net assets. “Specified Expenses” means all ordinary operating expenses of the Fund, except for interest expenses, taxes, brokerage expenses, Rule 12b-1 fees (if any), acquired fund fees and expenses, and expenses incidental to a meeting of the Fund’s shareholders. The fee waiver is subject to recoupment if such recoupment can be achieved within the lesser of the foregoing expense limits or those in place at the time of recapture. Any waived fees may only be recouped within three years from the date when the amount was waived or reimbursed. This agreement may be terminated only by the Trust’s Board of Trustees on 60 days’ written notice to the Fund’s adviser.
