Pacer ETFs Expands Structured Outcome Strategy ETFs With October Series

MALVERN, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pacer ETFs (“Pacer”), an ETF provider that offers strategy-driven, rules-based ETFs, announces the next addition to the Pacer Swan SOS ETF family with its October series. The launch includes: Pacer Swan SOS Conservative (October) ETF (PSCQ), Pacer Swan SOS Moderate (October) ETF (PSMO) and Pacer Swan SOS Flex (October) ETF (PSFO). Starting today, these funds will offer specific buffers and caps lasting for a 12-month target-outcome period.

The Pacer Swan SOS ETF family, launched in December 2020, seeks to provide investors with exposure to market growth up to a specific cap, while simultaneously offering a built-in downside buffer based on current market conditions in the event of a market down cycle. Each ETF within the series comes with a varied structured outcome strategy, allowing investors to be deliberate in how they manage risk.

“While markets in 2021 have managed to surprise on the upside, the remainder of the year presents several challenges that could lead to excess volatility,” says Pacer ETFs Distributors President Sean O’Hara. “The Pacer Swan SOS series was designed to address that volatility and grow investor capital while managing risk, an ideal approach in the current market environment.”

Before investing you should carefully consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses. This and other information is in the prospectus. A copy may be obtained by visiting or calling 1-877-337-0500. Please read the prospectus carefully before investing.

An investment in the Funds is subject to investment risk, including the possible loss of principal. Pacer ETF shares may be bought and sold on an exchange through a brokerage account. Brokerage commissions and ETF expenses will reduce investment returns. There can be no assurance that an active trading market for ETF shares will be developed or maintained. The risks associated with this fund are detailed in the prospectus and could include factors such as buffered loss risk, cap change risk, capped upside risk, counterparty risk, ETF risks, FLEX options correlation risk, FLEX options liquidity risk, FLEX options valuation risk, investment period risk, large-capitalization investing risk, management risk, market risk, new fund risk, non-diversification risk, special tax risk, underlying ETF risk, and/or special risks of exchange traded funds.

Fund shareholders are subject to an upside return cap that represents the maximum percentage return an investor can achieve from an investment in a Fund for an Investment Period. Therefore, even though the Funds’ returns are based upon the Underlying ETF, if the Underlying ETF experiences returns for an Investment Period in excess of the Cap, an investor will not experience those excess gains. The Cap is set on the first day of a Funds’ Investment Period and does not take into account any management fees, transaction costs or expenses charged to shareholders. The Cap will be reduced by these when taken into account.

The Fund only seeks to provide shareholders that hold shares for an entire Investment Period with a buffer against a pre-determined percentage of Underlying ETF losses (based upon the value of the Underlying ETF at the time the Fund entered into the FLEX Options on the first day of its Investment Period) during an Investment Period. You will bear all Underlying ETF losses beyond that pre-determined percentage on a one-to-one basis. The buffer is provided prior to taking into account annual Fund management fees, operating expenses, transaction fees, and any extraordinary expenses incurred by a Fund. A shareholder that purchases shares at the beginning of an Investment Period may lose their entire investment. While each Fund seeks to limit losses for shareholders who hold shares for the entire Investment Period, there is no guarantee it will successfully do so.

Swan Global Investments, LLC (“Swan”) is an independent Investment Advisory headquartered in Durango, Colorado registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940.
