The Harbor All-Weather Inflation Focus ETF (HGER) seeks to provide investment results that closely correspond, before fees and expenses, to the performance of the Quantix Inflation Index (the“Index”).
Through a distinctive construction and exposure to a diversified basket of commodities, the Quantix Inflation Index (“QII”) is designed to deliver inflation protection and seeks to outperform traditional commodity indices, particularly in inflationary environments.
QII is comprised of commodity futures, which are distinct in their relationship to inflation and are generally regarded as having the highest positive correlation to inflation of all the major asset classes.
As part of its methodology, QII considers the relative inflation sensitivity of each commodity, how to hedge against different types of inflation, and the cost of holding and rolling futures positions. The Index is rebalanced on a quarterly basis.

A Team Approach
“Teamwork is critical to our success. We believe that a collective mindset can deliver much more than any individual. We value contribution and prioritize collaboration.”
The eligible universe of commodities consists of the 24 most liquid commodity futures based on historical open interest and volume measures. They are traded on either a US or UK exchange and denominated in USD. A minimum of 15 commodity futures will be included in the index.
The investment process is designed to reflect the Inflation Sensitivity and Roll Yield Return of each commodity, applied to the economic significance of commodities in the real world, within a diversification risk management framework.
This is accomplished via a five-step process:
Quantix aims to optimize commodity basket weights to increase inflation sensitivity and long-term returns through weighting toward commodities which have a higher Quality Score.
Sector Weights: No minimum limit. Maximum varies by sector with upper limit of 50%
Commodity Weights: 2% minimum, 20% maximum (except Gold with max 40%)

There is no guarantee that the investment objective of the Fund will be achieved. Stock markets are volatile and equity values can decline significantly in response to adverse issuer, political, regulatory, market and economic conditions. A non- diversified Fund may invest a greater percentage of its assets in securities of a single issuer, and/or invest in a relatively small number of issuers, it is more susceptible to risks associated with a single economic, political or regulatory occurrence than a more diversified portfolio.
Commodity Risk: The Fund has exposure to commodities through its and/or the Subsidiary's investments in commodity- linked derivative instruments. Authorized Participant Concentration/Trading Risk: Only authorized participants (“APs”) may engage in creation or redemption transactions directly with the Fund. Commodity- Linked Derivatives Risk: The Fund's investments in commodity-linked derivative instruments (either directly or through the Subsidiary) and the tracking of an Index comprised of commodity futures may subject the Fund to significantly greater volatility than investments in traditional securities.
The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is a measure that examines the weighted average of prices of a basket of consumer goods and services.
