The premium/discount is calculated using the closing price from the exchange on which the Fund was last traded. The market price also shows the closing price from the exchange on which the Fund was last traded.  

The returns represent past performance. Past performance does not guarantee future results, which may vary. The Fund’s investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when sold or redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted above.

The Fund is not a money market fund and does not attempt to maintain a stable NAV.

[1] Volatility refers to the annualized standard deviation of returns.

[2] Traditional money market funds refers to mutual funds that invest primarily in low-risk, short-term investments such as treasury bills, government securities, certificates of deposit and other highly liquid, safe securities.

[3] Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses: GSST 0.20%. The Investment Adviser has agreed to waive a portion of its management fee in order to achieve an effective net management fee rate of 0.16% as an annual percentage rate of average daily net assets of the fund. This arrangement will remain in effect through at least April 15, 2020, and prior to such date the Investment Adviser may not terminate the arrangement without approval of the Board of Trustees. The average net expense ratio for Ultrashort Bond ETFs in the Morningstar Ultrashort Bond category is 23 bps. Category expense ratios represent category averages for all funds in the ultrashort bond category as defined by Morningstar. In an effort to distinguish funds by what they own, as well as by their prospectus objectives and styles, Morningstar developed the Morningstar Categories. While the prospectus objective identifies a fund's investment goals based on the wording in the fund prospectus, the Morningstar Category identifies funds based on their actual investment styles as measured by their underlying portfolio holdings (portfolio and other statistics over the past three years). Please note the figures shown above are the unitary management fees. Ordinary brokerage commissions apply. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns.

 The Goldman Sachs Access Ultra Short Bond ETF (the “Fund”) seeks to provide current income with preservation of capital. The Fund is an actively managed exchange-traded fund. The Fund pursues its investment objective by primarily investing in U.S. Government Securities (as defined in the Fund’s Prospectus), obligations of U.S. banks, corporate notes, commercial paper and other short-term obligations of U.S. companies, states, municipalities and other entities, fixed and floating rate mortgage-backed securities, asset-backed securities, collateralized loan obligations and repurchase agreements. The Fund is not a money market fund and does not attempt to maintain a stable net asset value. The Fund’s investments in fixed income securities are subject to the risks associated with debt securities generally, including credit, liquidity and interest rate risk. Any guarantee on U.S. government securities applies only to the underlying securities of the Fund if held to maturity and not to the value of the Fund’s shares. Because the Fund may invest heavily in specific sectors (for example, the financial services sector), the Fund is subject to greater risk of loss as a result of adverse economic, business or other developments affecting such sectors. Foreign investments may be more volatile and less liquid than investments in U.S. securities and are subject to the risks of adverse economic or political developments. Investments in asset-backed securities and mortgage-backed securities are subject to prepayment risk (i.e., the risk that in a declining interest rate environment the Fund’s underlying mortgages may be prepaid, causing the Fund to have to reinvest at lower interest rates). The Fund may be more sensitive to adverse economic, business or political developments if it invests a substantial portion of its assets in bonds of similar projects or in particular types of municipal securities. The Fund may make investments that are or may become illiquid. At times, the Fund may be unable to sell illiquid investments without a substantial drop in price, if at all.

The performance of a new or smaller fund may not represent how the fund will perform in the future. A new or smaller fund may buy smaller-sized bonds known as “odd lots”, which may be sold at a discount to similar “round lot” bonds, that the fund may not buy as the fund grows in size. All positions are marked at “round lot” prices in calculating NAV and performance . New funds have limited performance histories for investors to evaluate. There is no guarantee that any fund, including a fund with high or unusual performance for one or more periods of time, will perform similarly in the future.

Performance reflects cumulative total returns for periods of less than one year and average annual total returns for periods of greater than one year. Since inception returns for periods of less than one year are cumulative. All Fund performance data reflect the reinvestment of distributions.

After-tax returns reflect the highest federal income tax rate but exclude state and local taxes. Fund performance reflects fee waivers, absent which, performance data quoted would have been lower. After Tax Held and After Tax Sold are based on NAV. Returns less than one year are cumulative.

Total returns are calculated assuming purchase of a share at the market price or net asset value (“NAV”) on the first day and sale of a share at the market price or NAV on the last day of each period reported. The Total Returns Based on NAV and Market Price does not reflect brokerage commissions or sales charges in connection with the purchase or sale of Fund shares, which if included would lower the performance shown above. The NAV used in the Total Return calculation assumes all management fees and operating expenses incurred by the Fund. Total returns for periods less than one full year are not annualized.

Net Asset Value is the market value of one share of the Fund. This amount is derived by dividing the total value of all the securities in the Fund’s portfolio, less any liabilities, by the number of Fund shares outstanding. Market Price is the price at which the Fund’s shares are trading on the Exchange. The Market Price of the Fund’s shares will fluctuate and, at the time of sale, shares may be worth more or less than the original investment or the Fund’s then current net asset value. The Fund cannot predict whether its shares will trade at, above or below net asset value.

The NAV used in the Total Return calculation assumes all management fees and operating expenses incurred by the Fund. Market price is the price at which the Fund’s shares are trading on its applicable listing exchange. Market Price returns are based upon the last trade at 4:00pm EST and do not reflect the returns you would receive if you traded shares at other times. The first day of secondary market trading is typically several days after the Fund’s inception of investment operations date; therefore, the NAV of the Fund is used as a proxy for the period from inception of investment operations to the first day of secondary market trading to calculate the Market Price returns.

Fund shares are not individually redeemable and are issued and redeemed by the Fund at their NAV only in large, specified blocks of shares called creation units. Shares otherwise can be bought and sold only through exchange trading at market price (not NAV). Shares may trade at a premium or discount to their NAV in the secondary market. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns. Ordinary brokerage commissions apply.

Fund holdings and allocations shown are unaudited, and may not be representative of current or future investments. Fund holdings and allocations may not include the Fund’s entire investment portfolio, which may change at any time. Fund holdings should not be relied on in making investment decisions and should not be construed as research or investment advice regarding particular securities. Current and future holdings are subject to risk. Percentages may not sum to 100% due to rounding.

This Fund has not been rated by an independent rating agency. The credit allocation provided refers to the Fund's underlying portfolio securities. For the purpose of determining compliance with any credit rating requirement, each Fund assigns a security, at the time of purchase, the highest rating by a Nationally Recognized Statistical Rating Organization (NRSRO) if the security is rated by more than one NRSRO. For this purpose, each Fund relies only on the ratings of the following NRSROs: Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s and Fitch, Inc. This method may differ from the method independently used by benchmark providers. GSAM will use a single rating if that is the only one available. Securities that are not rated by all three agencies are reflected as such in the breakdown. Unrated securities may be purchased by a Fund if they are determined by the Investment Adviser to be of a credit quality consistent with the Fund’s credit rating requirements. Unrated securities do not necessarily indicate low quality, and for such securities the investment adviser will evaluate the credit quality. GSAM converts all ratings to the equivalent S&P major rating category when illustrating credit rating breakdowns. Ratings and fund/benchmark credit quality may change over time.
