Letter from the President (unaudited)

 

Dear Shareholders,

 

Thank you for being an investor in AllianzIM Exchange-Traded Funds (“ETFs”). As part of one of the largest asset management and diversified insurance companies in the world, Allianz Investment Management LLC (“AllianzIM”) specializes in the development and execution of innovative risk management strategies. The AllianzIM Buffered ETFs (the “Funds”) are risk mitigation solutions which seek to provide downside risk mitigation through a buffer against the first 10% and 20% of market losses and to offer upside potential by tracking market returns up to a stated cap. The AllianzIM ETF platform offers 26 Buffered ETFs.

 

For the twelve month period that ended October 31, 2023, equities, as measured by the S&P 500 Price Return IndexSM 1, gained 8.31%, while fixed income, as measured by the Bloomberg U.S. Aggregate Bond Index2, edged out a small gain of 0.36%. Monetary policy headwinds were overshadowed by fiscal policy tailwinds this year as what was expected to be a gloomy backdrop for equity investors turned into an extended run of economic prosperity. Going into 2023, many economists had penciled in an economic correction as Federal Reserve (the “Fed”) policy took a bite into the American consumer. However, those views were decidedly pushed out further on the calendar as consumer spending proved to withstand a higher rate regime from the Fed. In turn, equity investors enjoyed a nice ride throughout most of 2023 as strong fundamentals, including three quarters of sequential earnings growth, lifted the S&P 500 Index to nearly 4,600.

 

Notwithstanding, many investors are beginning to ask, “is this as good as it gets?” There is no doubt consumers were on a spending frenzy over the summer months given the culmination of a 4.9% Gross Domestic Product (GDP) print for the third quarter 2023. This was likely the point when many market participants realized the Taylor Rule was not just referring to an economic model for monetary policy, but rather a boost to GDP from Taylor Swift’s concert tour. All jokes aside, the fundamentals were strong for equity investors and the performance of the S&P 500 Index reflected that. Lastly, the lower trajectory monthly inflation data over the summer helped the Fed refrain from being as aggressive on policy tightening and acted as an additional tailwind for investors.

 

It has been difficult to gauge what stage of the economic cycle we are in as recession projections continue to be pushed out for the time being, but it is becoming harder to argue the path forward is becoming more clear as indicated by sluggish equity returns in recent months. Geopolitical tensions have ratcheted up again, the U.S. is trying to avert a government shutdown, the Fed has not yet declared victory on inflation, and on top of all of that we are heading into an election year. As a result, buckle-up, as 2024 could prove to be a wild ride.

 

Despite positive equity returns over the fiscal year ended October 31, 2023, lingering concerns on market prospects remain from investors. The Allianz Life Insurance Company of North America (“Allianz Life”) Q3 2023 Quarterly Market Perceptions Study3 indicated that a majority of Americans (53%) fear another big market crash. A similar number have concerns that another recession is right around the corner. Given the economic backdrop and investor sentiment, we believe investment solutions that offer built-in risk mitigation with upside potential can be an important component of a diversified portfolio by seeking to keep investors in the market and to attempt to eliminate challenges in trying to time the market.

Sincerely,

 

 

Brian J. Muench, CFA®

ALLIANZIM U.S. LARGE CAP BUFFER10 JAN ETF

ALLIANZIM U.S. LARGE CAP BUFFER20 JAN ETF

 

Fund Performance Overview (unaudited)

 

As of January 1, 2023, the Funds seek to match the share price returns of the SPDR® S&P 500® ETF Trust (the “Underlying ETF”) up to a stated upside Cap, while limiting downside losses of the Fund by the amount of the stated Buffer over a twelve-month Outcome Period. The Funds’ most recent Outcome Period initiated on January 1, 2023. Prior to January 1, 2023, the Funds sought to match the returns of the S&P 500 Price Return IndexSM, up to a specified upside cap, while limiting downside losses of the Fund by the amount of the stated buffer over a twelve-month outcome period. AllianzIM’s Buffered ETF solutions seek to provide downside risk mitigation through a Buffer against the first 10% and 20% of market losses. The buffer for the AllianzIM U.S. Large Cap Buffer10 Jan ETF is 10% and the AllianzIM U.S. Large Cap Buffer20 Jan ETF is 20%. This market commentary will primarily focus on factors influencing the S&P 500 Price Return IndexSM for the period covered by this report. Because this period does not align with the Outcome Period of the Funds, the Fund performance stated over the last year does not align with the investment objective of the Funds.

 

For the fiscal year ended October 31, 2023, the S&P 500 Price Return IndexSM returned 8.31%. While volatility and inflation have subdued over the past calendar year, rising interest rates, geopolitical uncertainty, and macro risks influenced the market. Positive returns in the S&P 500 Price Return IndexSM, which is a market capitalization-weighted index, throughout the first half of the calendar year have become more concentrated with a select group of securities driving returns of the index. The Federal Reserve (the “Fed”) continued to raise its key rate in 2023 to a range between 5.25% - 5.50% which left investors wondering if these actions will produce the lower inflation environment they expect without pushing the U.S. economy into a recession, with rising rates putting downward pricing pressure on bonds. Even with the strong equity markets early in the calendar year, investor sentiment was cautious as equity markets began to pull back toward the end of the fiscal year with negative index returns in August, September and October.

 

The risk mitigation attributes of the 10% and 20% Buffer enabled the Funds to soften market fluctuations during the reporting period relative to the S&P 500 Price Return IndexSM. Against a backdrop of rapidly rising rates, the potential of a recession, and continuing geopolitical risks, we believe it makes sense for investors to prepare for the possibility of more volatile market events and look for ways to mitigate risks along the uncertain road ahead.

 

Each AllianzIM Buffered ETF is subject to an upside return Cap that represents the absolute maximum percentage return that the Fund can achieve for its Outcome Period. Therefore, even though the Fund seeks to provide returns based upon the performance of the SPDR® S&P 500® ETF Trust, if the return of the SPDR® S&P 500® ETF Trust for the Outcome Period exceeds the Cap, the Fund will not experience those excess gains. The Funds’ website, www.allianzIMetfs.com, provides important information relating to each Fund, including potential outcomes of an investment in the Fund. One cannot invest directly in an index. Past performance does not guarantee future results.

Positive returns in the S&P 500 Price Return IndexSM, which is a market capitalization-weighted index, throughout the first half of the calendar year have become more concentrated with a select group of securities driving returns of the index. The Federal Reserve (the “Fed”) continued to raise its key rate in 2023 to a range between 5.25% - 5.50% which left investors wondering if these actions will produce the lower inflation environment they expect without pushing the U.S. economy into a recession, with rising rates putting downward pricing pressure on bonds. Even with the strong equity markets early in the calendar year, investor sentiment was cautious as equity markets began to pull back toward the end of the fiscal year with negative index returns in August, September and October.

 

The risk mitigation attributes of the 10% and 20% Buffer enabled the Funds to soften market fluctuations during the reporting period relative to the S&P 500 Price Return IndexSM. Against a backdrop of rapidly rising rates, the potential of a recession, and continuing geopolitical risks, we believe it makes sense for investors to prepare for the possibility of more volatile market events and look for ways to mitigate risks along the uncertain road ahead.

 

Each AllianzIM Buffered ETF is subject to an upside return Cap that represents the absolute maximum percentage return that the Fund can achieve for its Outcome Period. Therefore, even though the Fund seeks to provide returns based upon the performance of the SPDR® S&P 500® ETF Trust, if the return of the SPDR® S&P 500® ETF Trust for the Outcome Period exceeds the Cap, the Fund will not experience those excess gains. The Funds’ website, www.allianzIMetfs.com, provides important information relating to each Fund, including potential outcomes of an investment in the Fund. One cannot invest directly in an index. Past performance does not guarantee future results.

ALLIANZIM U.S. LARGE CAP BUFFER20 APR ETF

 

Fund Performance Overview (unaudited)

 

As of April 1, 2023, the Funds seek to match the share price returns of the SPDR® S&P 500® ETF Trust (the “Underlying ETF”) up to a stated upside Cap, while limiting downside losses of the Fund by the amount of the stated Buffer over a twelve-month Outcome Period. The Funds’ most recent Outcome Period initiated on April 1, 2023. Prior to April 1, 2023, the Funds sought to match the returns of the S&P 500 Price Return IndexSM, up to a specified upside cap, while limiting downside losses of the Fund by the amount of the stated buffer over a twelve-month outcome period. AllianzIM’s Buffered ETF solutions seek to provide downside risk mitigation through a Buffer against the first 10% and 20% of market losses. The buffer for the AllianzIM U.S. Large Cap Buffer10 Apr ETF is 10% and the AllianzIM U.S. Large Cap Buffer20 Apr ETF is 20%.

The Federal Reserve (the “Fed”) continued to raise its key rate in 2023 to a range between 5.25% - 5.50% which left investors wondering if these actions will produce the lower inflation environment they expect without pushing the U.S. economy into a recession, with rising rates putting downward pricing pressure on bonds. Even with the strong equity markets early in the calendar year, investor sentiment was cautious as equity markets began to pull back toward the end of the fiscal year with negative index returns in August, September and October.

 

The risk mitigation attributes of the 10% and 20% Buffer enabled the Funds to soften market fluctuations during the reporting period relative to the S&P 500 Price Return IndexSM. Against a backdrop of rapidly rising rates, the potential of a recession, and continuing geopolitical risks, we believe it makes sense for investors to prepare for the possibility of more volatile market events and look for ways to mitigate risks along the uncertain road ahead.

 

Each AllianzIM Buffered ETF is subject to an upside return Cap that represents the absolute maximum percentage return that the Fund can achieve for its Outcome Period. Therefore, even though the Fund seeks to provide returns based upon the performance of the SPDR® S&P 500® ETF Trust, if the return of the SPDR® S&P 500® ETF Trust for the Outcome Period exceeds the Cap, the Fund will not experience those excess gains. The Funds’ website, www.allianzIMetfs.com, provides important information relating to each Fund, including potential outcomes of an investment in the Fund. One cannot invest directly in an index. Past performance does not guarantee future results.

ALLIANZIM U.S. LARGE CAP BUFFER10 OCT ETF

ALLIANZIM U.S. LARGE CAP BUFFER20 OCT ETF

 

Fund Performance Overview (unaudited)

 

The Funds seek to match the share price returns of the SPDR® S&P 500® ETF Trust (the “Underlying ETF”) up to a stated upside Cap, while limiting downside losses of the Fund by the amount of the stated Buffer over a twelve-month Outcome Period. The Funds’ most recent Outcome Period initiated on October 1, 2023. AllianzIM’s Buffered ETF solutions seek to provide downside risk mitigation through a Buffer against the first 10% and 20% of market losses. The buffer for the AllianzIM U.S. Large Cap Buffer10 Oct ETF is 10% and the AllianzIM U.S. Large Cap Buffer20 Oct ETF is 20%. This market commentary will primarily focus on factors influencing the S&P 500 Price Return IndexSM for the period covered by this report. Because this period does not align with the Outcome Period of the Funds, the Fund performance stated over the last year does not align with the investment objective of the Funds.

 

For the fiscal year ended October 31, 2023, the S&P 500 Price Return IndexSM returned 8.31%. While volatility and inflation have subdued over the past calendar year, rising interest rates, geopolitical uncertainty, and macro risks influenced the market. Positive returns in the S&P 500 Price Return IndexSM, which is a market capitalization-weighted index, throughout the first half of the calendar year have become more concentrated with a select group of securities driving returns of the index.

Because this period does not align with the Outcome Period of the Funds, the Fund performance stated over the last year does not align with the investment objective of the Funds.

 

For the fiscal period November 30, 2022 (commencement of Fund operations) through October 31, 2023, the S&P 500 Price Return IndexSM returned 2.79%. While volatility and inflation have subdued over the past calendar year, rising interest rates, geopolitical uncertainty, and macro risks influenced the market. Positive returns in the S&P 500 Price Return IndexSM, which is a market capitalization-weighted index, throughout the first half of the calendar year have become more concentrated with a select group of securities driving returns of the index. The Federal Reserve (the “Fed”) continued to raise its key rate in 2023 to a range between 5.25% - 5.50% which left investors wondering if these actions will produce the lower inflation environment they expect without pushing the U.S. economy into a recession, with rising rates putting downward pricing pressure on bonds. Even with the strong equity markets early in the calendar year, investor sentiment was cautious as equity markets began to pull back toward the end of the fiscal year with negative index returns in August, September and October.

 

The risk mitigation attributes of the 10% and 20% Buffer enabled the Funds to soften market fluctuations during the reporting period relative to the S&P 500 Price Return IndexSM. Against a backdrop of rapidly rising rates, the potential of a recession, and continuing geopolitical risks, we believe it makes sense for investors to prepare for the possibility of more volatile market events and look for ways to mitigate risks along the uncertain road ahead.

 

Each AllianzIM Buffered ETF is subject to an upside return Cap that represents the absolute maximum percentage return that the Fund can achieve for its Outcome Period. Therefore, even though the Fund seeks to provide returns based upon the performance of the SPDR® S&P 500® ETF Trust, if the return of the SPDR® S&P 500® ETF Trust for the Outcome Period exceeds the Cap, the Fund will not experience those excess gains. The Funds’ website, www.allianzIMetfs.com, provides important information relating to each Fund, including potential outcomes of an investment in the Fund. One cannot invest directly in an index. Past performance does not guarantee future results.

ALLIANZIM U.S. LARGE CAP 6 MONTH BUFFER10 JAN/JUL ETF

 

Fund Performance Overview (unaudited)

 

As of January 1, 2023, the Fund seeks to match the share price returns of the SPDR® S&P 500® ETF Trust (the “Underlying ETF”) up to a stated upside Cap, while limiting downside losses to the Fund by the amount of the stated Buffer over a six-month Outcome Period. The Fund’s most recent Outcome Period initiated on July 1, 2023. Prior to January 1, 2023, the Fund sought to match the returns of the S&P 500 Price Return IndexSM up to a specified upside cap, while limiting downside losses of the Fund by the amount of the stated buffer over a six-month outcome period. The Fund’s previous Outcome Period was from January 1, 2023 to June 30, 2023 and the Fund sought to match the returns of the Underlying ETF up to a stated upside Cap, while limiting downside losses to the Underlying ETF by the amount of the stated Buffer. The buffer for the AllianzIM U.S. Large Cap 6 Month Buffer10 Jan/Jul ETF is 10%. This market commentary will primarily focus on factors influencing the S&P 500 Price Return IndexSM for the period covered by this report. Because this period does not align with the Outcome Period of the Fund, the Fund performance stated over the last year does not align with the investment objective of the Fund.

 

For the fiscal year ended October 31, 2023, the S&P 500 Price Return IndexSM returned 8.31%. While volatility and inflation have subdued over the past calendar year, rising interest rates, geopolitical uncertainty, and macro risks influenced the market. Positive returns in the S&P 500 Price Return IndexSM, which is a market capitalization-weighted index, throughout the first half of the calendar year have become more concentrated with a select group of securities driving returns of the index. The Federal Reserve (the “Fed”) continued to raise its key rate in 2023 to a range between 5.25% - 5.50% which left investors wondering if these actions will produce the lower inflation environment they expect without pushing the U.S. economy into a recession, with rising rates putting downward pricing pressure on bonds.
