Shareholder Letter (unaudited)
Message from the President
Despite high levels of volatility and sharp, short-term shifts in value, broadly based stock and bond indices saw relatively modest overall changes during the 12-month reporting period ended April 30, 2023. A deeply challenging investment environment during the last eight months of 2022, driven by increasing inflationary pressures and aggressive monetary efforts to curb them, was followed by a more positive, but uneven, economic and monetary backdrop during the first four months of 2023.
In April 2022, before the start of the reporting period, U.S. inflation stood at an annualized rate of 8.3%, up from 4.2% a year earlier. The U.S. Federal Reserve (the “Fed”), had begun to take steps to curb inflation, raising the federal funds rate from near zero in March 2022. Eight separate rate hikes during the reporting period brought the benchmark rate up to 4.75-5.00% in March 2023. Inflation seemed to respond, easing steadily from a peak of 9.1% in June 2022 to 4.9% in April 2023. Although further interest rate increases are expected in 2023, by the end of the reporting period, it appeared that the Fed might be nearing the end of the current rate-hike cycle. Economic growth, although slower, remained positive, supported by historically high levels of employment and robust consumer spending. International economies experienced similar trends, with more modest central bank interest-rate hikes curbing inflation to a degree.
Equity market behavior during the reporting period reflected the arc of monetary policy and economic developments. From May through early October 2022, as inflation raged and interest-rate increases accelerated, investors shied away from perceived risk, favoring relatively defensive and value-oriented sectors over growth-oriented sectors. The S&P 500® Index, a widely regarded benchmark of U.S. market performance, declined by more than 13% during this time, while international stocks suffered even sharper losses. These trends reversed from mid-October 2022 through the end of the reporting period, as inflationary pressures eased and markets began to anticipate an end to rising interest rates. Between mid-October 2022 and April 30, 2023, the S&P 500® Index regained all the ground it lost earlier, ending in modestly positive territory. International developed-markets stocks bounced back even stronger, prompted by surprisingly robust economic resilience in Europe and further bolstered by China’s reopening after the government rescinded its “zero-COVID-19” policy and eased regulatory restrictions on key industries. The declining value of the U.S. dollar relative to other currencies also enhanced international market equity performance. Emerging markets generally lagged their developed-markets counterparts while outperforming U.S. markets.
Fixed-income markets followed a similar pattern of retreat and recovery. Bond prices trended sharply downward early in the reporting period, as yields rose along with interest rates. Short-term yields rose faster than long-term yields, producing a yield curve inversion — with long-term rates lower than short-term rates — that persisted from July through the end of the reporting period. However, market sentiment improved in the second half of the reporting period as inflationary pressures eased. As the Fed decreased the magnitude of rate increases, focus turned toward the possibility of eventual rate reductions and a potential ‘soft landing’ for the economy. On the negative side, a small number of high-profile, regional U.S. bank failures in March and April 2023 raised fears of possible wider banking industry contagion and future credit constraints.
While many market observers believe the Fed has neared the end of the current cycle of rate increases, the central bank’s rhetoric remains sharply focused on its target inflation rate of 2%. Only time will tell if the market’s favorable expectations prove well founded.
However the economic story unfolds in the months and years to come, at New York Life Investments we remain dedicated to providing the unique investment solutions required to build smarter portfolios during challenging times. Thank you for continuing to place your trust in our team.
Sincerely,

Management’s Discussion of Fund Performance (unaudited)
IQ Hedge Multi-Strategy Tracker ETF
How did IQ Hedge Multi-Strategy Tracker ETF perform during the 12 months ended April 30, 2023?
For the 12 months ended April 30, 2023 (the “reporting period”), IQ Hedge Multi-Strategy Tracker ETF returned 0.68% at NAV (net asset value) and 0.73% at market price.1 To compare, the ETF’s Underlying Index, the IQ Hedge Multi-Strategy Index2 returned 1.35% for the reporting period. The S&P 500® Index (Net)2 and Barclay Fund of Funds Index2 returned 2.13% and −0.29%, respectively, for the same period.
What factors affected the ETF’s performance during the reporting period?
Markets were whipsawed during the reporting period, as volatility ran high and investors struggled to make sense of a dizzying array of conflicting economic signals. Many of the headwinds that had raged during the previous reporting period lingered, including COVID-19-related supply-chain disruptions, worsening geopolitical disequilibrium stemming from Russia’s war in Ukraine and sharpening U.S./China tensions, and stubbornly high inflation. Overall, 2022 proved a difficult year for markets, with domestic stocks suffering their worst year since the 2008 Great Financial Crisis (the “GFC”) and bonds posting historically negative performance amid rapid, global, central bank tightening. Global stocks varied by geography but, if not since the GFC, they generally suffered their worst performance in multiple years. The first four months of 2023, while showing improvement, remained uneven.
Inflation, and central banks’ responses to it, arguably held primacy over all other factors. The U.S. Federal Reserve (the “Fed”) waged its most aggressive campaign in decades to tame inflation, sharply raising interest rates from a shallow range of 0.25% – 0.5% as of the start of the reporting period to 4.75% – 5% as of April 30, 2023. Cracks from this abrupt pivot from near-zero rates emerged late in the reporting period, most notably with the collapse of two major regional banks, raising financial stability concerns.
Belying these challenges, other factors pointed in a positive direction. Employment and consumer spending remained robust, wages steadily rose, energy markets stabilized and China began to reopen from its zero-COVID-19 phase. Also, inflation, while still above the Fed’s target, trended downward and rates were increasingly believed to be at, or approaching, peak levels.
These crosscurrents weighed heavily on key asset class performance drivers, particularly earnings outlooks, interest-rate levels, credit spreads, commodity prices and currency volatility. Against this challenging backdrop, hedge fund performance was mixed, with macro and multi-strategy funds being the top performers, while equity long/short, fixed income arbitrage and event-driven strategies lagged.
How were the ETF’s assets allocated during the reporting period and why?
The ETF spread its allocations across bonds, equities, commodities, currencies, real estate and volatility, with the largest allocation dedicated to bonds, followed by equities. The Underlying Index uses a rules-based process to select individual Index components that, when combined, produce an Index designed to replicate the risk/return characteristics of hedge funds generally, not individual hedge funds. The Underlying Index uses an optimization process whereby Index components are weighted, pursuant to a rules-based process, in an optimal manner to replicate various hedge fund investment styles.
How did the ETF’s allocations change over the course of the reporting period?
The ETF maintained its largest overweight allocations to bonds, followed by equities. As equity uncertainty stayed high and the Fed’s rate hikes cooled over the reporting period, the ETF increased its allocation to bonds and reduced its exposure to equities.

TABLE OF CONTENTS
Management’s Discussion of Fund Performance (unaudited)(continued)
During the reporting period, which Underlying holdings had the highest total returns and which Underlying holdings had the lowest total returns?
In terms of total return, the ETF’s best performers during the reporting period were Energy Select Sector SPDR® Fund and Vanguard Energy ETF. Energy Select Sector SPDR® Fund tracks the performance of the Energy Select Sector Index. The fund holds large-cap U.S. energy stocks. It invests in companies that develop and produce crude oil & natural gas, and provide drilling and other energy related services. The holdings are weighted by market capitalization. Vanguard Energy ETF seeks to track the performance of the MSCI US Investable Market Energy Index, which consists of large, mid-size and small U.S. companies in the energy sector involved in the construction or provision of oil rigs, as well as the exploration, production and refining of oil & gas products.
The holdings with the lowest total returns were Vanguard Real Estate ETF and Fidelity MSCI Real Estate Index ETF. Vanguard Real Estate ETF seeks to track the performance of the MSCI US IMI 25/50 Real Estate Index. The ETF invests in the stocks that make up the Index, holding each stock in the same proportion as its weighting in the Index; the remaining assets are allocated to cash investments. Fidelity MSCI Real Estate Index ETF seeks to provide investment results that correspond, before fees and expenses, to the performance of the MSCI USA IMI Real Estate 25/25 Index. The constituents of the ETF are market cap weighted and rebalanced quarterly.
Which Underlying ETFs were the strongest contributors to the ETF’s performance and which Underlying ETFs were particularly weak?
On the basis of impact, which takes weightings and total returns into consideration, the strongest contributors to the ETF’s absolute performance during the reporting period were Vanguard Short-Term Corporate Bond ETF and Energy Select Sector SPDR® Fund, the latter of which is described above. Vanguard Short-Term Corporate Bond ETF seeks to track the performance of the Bloomberg US 1-5 Year Corporate Bond Index.
The weakest contributors to the ETF’s absolute performance were SPDR® Bloomberg Convertible Securities ETF and iShares Convertible Bond ETF. SPDR® Bloomberg Convertible Securities ETF’s objective is to provide investment results that correspond generally to the total return performance of the Bloomberg U.S. Convertibles Liquid Bond Index. iShares Convertible Bond ETF seeks to track the investment results of the Bloomberg U.S. Convertible Cash Pay Bond > $250MM Index. The Index is a subset of the Bloomberg U.S. Convertibles: Cash Pay Bonds Index and measures the performance of the U.S. dollar-denominated convertibles market.
What were the largest positions in the ETF at the end of the reporting period?
As of April 30, 2023, the ETF’s largest positions included Vanguard Short-Term Corporate Bond ETF, described above, and iShares 1-5 Year Investment Grade Corporate Bond ETF. iShares 1-5 Year Investment Grade Corporate Bond ETF seeks to track the investment results of an index composed of U.S. dollar-denominated investment-grade corporate bonds with remaining maturities between 1-5 years. The ETF seeks to track the ICE BofA 1-5 Year US Corporate Index.

IQ Merger Arbitrage ETF
How did IQ Merger Arbitrage ETF perform during the 12 months ended April 30, 2023?
For the 12 months ended April 30, 2023 (the “reporting period”), IQ Merger Arbitrage ETF returned −0.21% at NAV (net asset value) and −0.19% at market price.1 To compare, the ETF’s Underlying Index, the IQ Merger Arbitrage Index2 returned 0.59% for the reporting period. The MSCI World Index (Net),2 S&P 500® Index (Net)2 and Barclay Merger Arbitrage Index2 returned 3.18%, 2.13% and 1.65%, respectively, for the same period.
What factors affected the ETF’s performance during the reporting period?
The IQ Merger Arbitrage Index, the ETF’s Underlying Index, seeks to achieve capital appreciation by investing in global companies for which there has been a public announcement of a takeover by an acquirer. This differentiated approach is based on a passive strategy of owning certain announced takeover targets with the goal of generating returns that are representative of global merger arbitrage activity. The Index also includes short exposure to global equities as a partial equity market hedge.
Markets were whipsawed during the reporting period, as volatility ran high and investors struggled to make sense of a dizzying array of conflicting economic signals. Many of the headwinds that had raged during the previous reporting period lingered, including COVID-19-related supply-chain disruptions, worsening geopolitical disequilibrium stemming from Russia’s war in Ukraine and sharpening U.S./China tensions, and stubbornly high inflation. Overall, 2022 proved a difficult year for markets, with domestic stocks suffering their worst year since the 2008 Great Financial Crisis (the “GFC”) and bonds posting historically negative performance amid rapid, global, central bank tightening. Global stocks varied by geography but, if not since the GFC, they generally suffered their worst performance in multiple years. The first four months of 2023, while showing improvement, remained uneven.
Inflation, and central banks’ responses to it, arguably held primacy over all other factors. The U.S. Federal Reserve (the “Fed”) waged its most aggressive campaign in decades to tame inflation, sharply raising interest rates from a shallow range of 0.25% – 0.5% as of the start of the reporting period to 4.75% – 5% as of April 2023. Cracks from this abrupt pivot from near-zero rates emerged late in the reporting period, most notably with the collapse of two major regional banks, raising financial stability concerns.
Belying these challenges, other factors pointed in a positive direction. Employment and consumer spending remained robust, wages steadily rose, energy markets stabilized and China began to reopen from its zero-COVID-19 phase. Also, inflation, while still above the Fed’s target, trended downward and rates were increasingly believed to be at, or approaching, peak levels.
These crosscurrents weighed heavily on key asset class performance drivers, particularly commodities supply and demand, global trade activity and economic stability, earnings outlooks, interest-rate levels, credit spreads, commodity prices and currency volatility.
Overall, global dealmaking had to navigate a daunting environment, with stubbornly high inflation, sharply rising interest rates and the growing specter of recession looming large. Despite the uncertain economic outlook and volatile equity market, M&A (merger and acquisition) activity, while down from a bumper year in 2021, held strong throughout the reporting period. Given that M&A is focused on unlocking long-term value, a significant cohort of companies were contrarians to the prevailing hesitancy and sought to take advantage of lower, and more attractive, valuations. This led to M&A continuing apace and remaining above pre-pandemic levels.
During the reporting period, how was the ETF’s performance materially affected by investments in derivatives?
With deals that involve stock financing, the Underlying Index employs a hedge to the sector of the acquirer if it is a domestic company and to the country or region of an acquirer if it is an international company. This

approach served the ETF well, delivering returns of 1.25% for North America sector hedges and 0.17% for non-North America country/regional hedges.
During the reporting period, which sectors made the strongest contributions to the ETF’s performance and which sectors made the weakest contributions?
On the basis of impact, which takes weightings and total returns into account, the sectors that provided the strongest positive contributions to the ETF’s absolute performance were health care and consumer staples. The sectors providing the weakest contributions to the ETF’s absolute performance were information technology and real estate.
During the reporting period, which individual stocks made the strongest positive contributions to the ETF’s absolute performance and which stocks detracted the most?
On the basis of impact, which takes weightings and total returns into consideration, the stocks that made the strongest positive contributions to the ETF’s absolute performance during the reporting period were Oak Street Health and Zendesk. Health care services provider Oak Street offers a technology-enabled, integrated platform to deliver value-based care focused on U.S. patients with health insurance. Software company Zendesk designs and develops software to improve customer relationships worldwide.
During the same period, the weakest contributors to the ETF’s absolute performance were Rogers and Duke Realty. Electronics solutions provider Rogers focuses on specialty engineered materials that enable high performance and reliability in electric vehicles, hybrid electric vehicles, wireless infrastructure, automotive safety and portable electronics for clients worldwide. Duke Realty owns, develops and manages logistics and industrial properties. The company provides development, leasing, property management, construction and other related services in the United States.
How did the ETF’s sector weightings change during the reporting period?
The sectors experiencing the largest weighting increases in the ETF during the reporting period were health care and consumer staples. During the same period, the sectors with the most substantial weighting decreases were information technology and utilities.
What were the largest positions in the ETF at the end of the reporting period?
As of April 30, 2023, the two largest positions in the ETF were Oak Street Health, described above, and TravelCenters of America. TravelCenters of America owns and operates petroleum filling stations in the United States. The company offers petrol, engine oils, preventive maintenance and food services.

IQ 500 International ETF
How did IQ 500 International ETF perform during the 12 months ended April 30, 2023?
For the 12 months ended April 30, 2023 (the “reporting period”), IQ 500 International ETF returned 8.93% at NAV (net asset value) and 10.47% at market price.1 To compare, the ETF’s Underlying Index, the IQ 500 International Index2 returned 9.11% for the reporting period. The MSCI EAFE Index (Net)2 returned 8.42% for the same period.
What factors affected the ETF’s performance during the reporting period?
The IQ 500 International Index, the ETF’s Underlying Index, identifies international companies that enjoy a strong global footprint and, at the same time, are able to maintain their long-term competitive positioning. The combination of these factors results in companies that are poised to continue driving improved operational performance and sustainable, long-term equity appreciation with low volatility and turnover.
Markets were whipsawed during the reporting period, as volatility ran high and investors struggled to make sense of a dizzying array of conflicting economic signals. Many of the headwinds that had raged during the previous reporting period lingered, including COVID-19-related supply-chain disruptions, worsening geopolitical disequilibrium stemming from Russia’s war in Ukraine and sharpening U.S./China tensions, and stubbornly high inflation. Overall, 2022 proved a difficult year for markets, with domestic stocks suffering their worst year since the 2008 Great Financial Crisis (the “GFC”) and bonds posting historically negative performance amid rapid, global, central bank tightening. Global stocks varied by geography but, if not since the GFC, they generally suffered their worst performance in multiple years. The first four months of 2023, while showing improvement, remained uneven.
Moreover, as the low interest rate environment came to a close and investors became more discerning, factor investment performance improved. Value outpaced its factor peers, as rising interest rates softened the appeal of growth stocks and boosted interest in profitable, undervalued companies. Amid this defensive shift, low volatility also fared well, with investors turning to stable, defensive sectors and companies. Quality also outperformed with investors favoring companies with strong, resilient balance sheets amid heightened uncertainty. The lone underperformer was the growth factor due to the sharply higher interest rate environment. With its multifactor approach, the Underlying Index was favorably positioned to benefit from this factor outperformance, while staying buffered from the cyclicality and concentration risk inherent to single factor exposures.
Inflation, and central banks’ responses to it, arguably held primacy over all other factors. The U.S. Federal Reserve (the “Fed”) waged its most aggressive campaign in decades to tame inflation, sharply raising interest rates from a shallow range of 0.25% – 0.5% as of the start of the reporting period to 4.75% – 5% as of April 2023. Cracks from this abrupt pivot from near-zero rates emerged late in the reporting period, most notably with the collapse of two major regional banks, raising financial stability concerns.
Belying these challenges, other factors pointed in a positive direction. Employment and consumer spending remained robust, wages steadily rose, energy markets stabilized and China began to reopen from its zero-COVID-19 phase. Also, inflation, while still above the Fed’s target, trended downward and rates were increasingly believed to be at, or approaching, peak levels.
These crosscurrents weighed heavily on key asset class performance drivers, particularly commodities supply and demand, global trade activity and economic stability, earnings outlooks, interest-rate levels, credit spreads, commodity prices and currency volatility.
Global currency and international equity markets experienced sharp volatility throughout the reporting period, with the U.S. dollar surging to historic highs as the Fed outpaced other central banks with significantly higher rates. However, as the reporting period progressed, other central banks raised rates markedly as well,

taking some of the air out of the soaring dollar and buoying international developed equities. Moreover, international developed economies held up better than expected amid recession concerns, further aiding performance.
During the reporting period, which sectors made the strongest contributions to the ETF’s performance and which sectors made the weakest contributions?
On the basis of impact, which takes weightings and total returns into account, the sectors that made the strongest contributions to the ETF’s absolute performance were industrials and consumer discretionary. The sectors that made the weakest contributions to the ETF’s absolute performance were health care and information technology.
During the reporting period, which individual stocks made the strongest positive contributions to the ETF’s absolute performance and which stocks detracted the most?
On the basis of impact, which takes weightings and total returns into consideration, the stocks that made the strongest positive contributions to the ETF’s absolute performance during the reporting period were TotalEnergies and LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton. Energy company TotalEnergies produces, transports and supplies crude oil, natural gas and low carbon electricity and refines petrochemical products. The company owns and manages gasoline filling stations worldwide. France-based, diversified, luxury goods company LVMH produces and sells wine, cognac, perfumes, cosmetics, luggage, watches and jewelry.

IQ Candriam ESG International Equity ETF
How did IQ Candriam ESG International Equity ETF perform during the 12 months ended April 30, 2023?
For the 12 months ended April 30, 2023 (the “reporting period”), IQ Candriam ESG International Equity ETF returned 7.98% at NAV (net asset value) and 9.81% at market price.1 To compare, the ETF’s Underlying Index, Candriam ESG International Equity Index2 returned 8.15% for the reporting period. The MSCI EAFE Index (Net)2 returned 8.42% for the same period.
What factors affected the ETF’s performance during the reporting period?
The Candriam ESG International Equity Index, the ETF’s Underlying Index, is a rules-based, broad-based, market-cap weighted index that consists of the top-rated international ESG (environmental, social and governance) companies based on ESG criteria developed by Candriam. Candriam’s ESG criteria seeks to identify companies that operate in a sustainable and responsible manner.
Markets were whipsawed during the reporting period, as volatility ran high and investors struggled to make sense of a dizzying array of conflicting economic signals. Many of the headwinds that had raged during the previous reporting period lingered, including COVID-19-related supply-chain disruptions, worsening geopolitical disequilibrium stemming from Russia’s war in Ukraine and sharpening U.S./China tensions, and stubbornly high inflation. Overall, 2022 proved a difficult year for markets, with domestic stocks suffering their worst year since the 2008 Great Financial Crisis (the “GFC”) and bonds posting historically negative performance amid rapid, global, central bank tightening. Global stocks varied by geography but, if not since the GFC, they generally suffered their worst performance in multiple years. The first four months of 2023, while showing improvement, remained uneven.
Inflation, and central banks’ responses to it, arguably held primacy over all other factors. The U.S. Federal Reserve (the “Fed”) waged its most aggressive campaign in decades to tame inflation, sharply raising interest rates from a shallow range of 0.25% – 0.5% as of the start of the reporting period to 4.75% – 5% as of April 2023. Cracks from this abrupt pivot from near-zero rates emerged late in the reporting period, most notably with the collapse of two major regional banks, raising financial stability concerns.
Belying these challenges, other factors pointed in a positive direction. Employment and consumer spending remained robust, wages steadily rose, energy markets stabilized and China began to reopen from its zero-COVID-19 phase. Also, inflation, while still above the Fed’s target, trended downward and rates were increasingly believed to be at, or approaching, peak levels.
These crosscurrents weighed heavily on key asset class performance drivers, particularly ESG sentiment, global trade activity, earnings outlooks, interest-rate levels, credit spreads, commodity prices and currency volatility.
During the reporting period, which sectors made the strongest contributions to the ETF’s performance and which sectors made the weakest contributions?
On the basis of impact, which takes weightings and total returns into account, the sectors that made the strongest contributions to the ETF’s absolute performance were financials and consumer discretionary. The sectors that made the weakest contributions to the ETF’s absolute performance were real estate and materials.
During the reporting period, which individual stocks made the strongest positive contributions to the ETF’s absolute performance and which stocks detracted the most?
On the basis of impact, which takes weightings and total returns into consideration, the stocks that made the strongest positive contributions to the ETF’s absolute performance during the reporting period were Novo Nordisk and LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton. Novo Nordisk develops, produces and markets pharmaceutical products. The company focuses on diabetes care and offers insulin delivery systems and

other diabetes products. Novo Nordisk also works in areas such as hemostasis management, growth disorders and hormone replacement therapy, and offers educational and training materials. France-based, diversified, luxury goods company LVMH produces and sells wine, cognac, perfumes, cosmetics, luggage, watches and jewelry.

In addition, Toyota operates financing services through its subsidiaries.

IQ Chaikin U.S. Large Cap ETF
How did IQ Chaikin U.S. Large Cap ETF perform during the 12 months ended April 30, 2023?
For the 12 months ended April 30, 2023 (the “reporting period”), IQ Chaikin U.S. Large Cap ETF returned 2.85% at NAV (net asset value) and 2.83% at market price.1 To compare, the ETF’s Underlying Index, the NASDAQ Chaikin Power US Large Cap Index2 returned 3.10% for the reporting period. The S&P 500® Index2 and the NASDAQ US 300 Index2 returned 2.66% and 2.71%, respectively, for the same period.
What factors affected the ETF’s performance during the reporting period?
The NASDAQ Chaikin Power US Large Cap Index, the ETF’s Underlying Index, is a rules-based, quantitative index designed to enhance an existing index (the NASDAQ US 300 Index) by selecting stocks with the highest Chaikin Power Gauge rating based on a number of fundamental, technical and sentiment factors. The Underlying Index rebalances and reconstitutes annually and typically consists of 45 to 65 equally weighted securities.
Markets were whipsawed during the reporting period, as volatility ran high and investors struggled to make sense of a dizzying array of conflicting economic signals. Many of the headwinds that had raged during the previous reporting period lingered, including COVID-19-related supply-chain disruptions, worsening geopolitical disequilibrium stemming from Russia’s war in Ukraine and sharpening U.S./China tensions, and stubbornly high inflation. Overall, 2022 proved a difficult year for markets, with stocks suffering their worst year since the 2008 Great Financial Crisis and bonds posting historically negative performance amid rapid, global, central bank tightening. The first four months of 2023, while showing improvement, remained uneven.
Moreover, as the low interest rate environment came to a close and investors became more discerning, factor investment performance improved. Value outpaced its factor peers, as rising interest rates softened the appeal of growth stocks and boosted interest in profitable, undervalued companies. Amid this defensive shift, low volatility also fared well, with investors turning to stable, defensive sectors and companies. Quality also outperformed with investors favoring companies with strong, resilient balance sheets amid heightened uncertainty. The lone underperformer was the growth factor due to the sharply higher interest rate environment. With its multifactor approach, the Underlying Index was favorably positioned to benefit from this factor outperformance, while staying buffered from the cyclicality and concentration risk inherent to single factor exposures.
Inflation, and central banks’ responses to it, arguably held primacy over all other factors. The U.S. Federal Reserve (the “Fed”) waged its most aggressive campaign in decades to tame inflation, sharply raising interest rates from a shallow range of 0.25% – 0.5% as of the start of the reporting period to 4.75% – 5% as of April 2023. Cracks from this abrupt pivot from near-zero rates emerged late in the reporting period, most notably with the collapse of two major regional banks, raising financial stability concerns.
Belying these challenges, other factors pointed in a positive direction. Employment and consumer spending remained robust, wages steadily rose, energy markets stabilized and China began to reopen from its zero-COVID-19 phase. Also, inflation, while still above the Fed’s target, trended downward and rates were increasingly believed to be at, or approaching, peak levels.

IQ Chaikin U.S. Small Cap ETF
How did IQ Chaikin U.S. Small Cap ETF perform during the 12 months ended April 30, 2023?
For the 12 months ended April 30, 2023 (the “reporting period”), IQ Chaikin U.S. Small Cap ETF returned −2.10% at NAV (net asset value) and −2.07% at market price.1 To compare, the ETF’s Underlying Index, the NASDAQ Chaikin Power US Small Cap Index2 returned −1.84% for the reporting period. The Russell 2000 Index2 and the NASDAQ US 1500 Index2 returned −3.65% and −4.95%, respectively, for the same period.
What factors affected the ETF’s performance during the reporting period?
The NASDAQ Chaikin Power US Small Cap Index, the ETF’s Underlying Index, is a rules-based, quantitative index designed to augment an existing Index (the NASDAQ US 1500 Index) by selecting stocks with the highest Chaikin Power Gauge rating based on a number of fundamental, technical and sentiment factors. The Underlying Index rebalances and reconstitutes annually and typically consists of 200 to 350 equally weighted securities.
Markets were whipsawed during the reporting period, as volatility ran high and investors struggled to make sense of a dizzying array of conflicting economic signals. Many of the headwinds that had raged during the previous reporting period lingered, including COVID-19-related supply-chain disruptions, worsening geopolitical disequilibrium stemming from Russia’s war in Ukraine and sharpening U.S./China tensions, and stubbornly high inflation. Overall, 2022 proved a difficult year for markets, with stocks suffering their worst year since the 2008 Great Financial Crisis and bonds posting historically negative performance amid rapid, global, central bank tightening. The first four months of 2023, while showing improvement, remained uneven.
Moreover, as the low interest rate environment came to a close and investors became more discerning, factor investment performance improved, while small caps experienced challenges as investors flocked to larger, more established companies amid intensifying economic uncertainty.
Inflation, and central banks’ responses to it, arguably held primacy over all other factors. The U.S. Federal Reserve (the “Fed”) waged its most aggressive campaign in decades to tame inflation, sharply raising interest rates from a shallow range of 0.25% – 0.5% as of the start of the reporting period to 4.75% – 5% as of April 2023. Cracks from this abrupt pivot from near-zero rates emerged late in the reporting period, most notably with the collapse of two major regional banks, raising financial stability concerns.
Belying these challenges, other factors pointed in a positive direction. Employment and consumer spending remained robust, wages steadily rose, energy markets stabilized and China began to reopen from its zero-COVID-19 phase. Also, inflation, while still above the Fed’s target, trended downward and rates were increasingly believed to be at, or approaching, peak levels.
These crosscurrents weighed heavily on key asset class performance drivers, particularly earnings outlooks, interest-rate levels, credit spreads, commodity prices and currency volatility.
During the reporting period, which sectors were the strongest positive contributors to the ETF’s performance and which sectors were particularly weak?
On the basis of impact, which takes weightings and total returns into account, the sectors that made the strongest contributions to the ETF’s absolute performance were industrials and health care. The sectors that made the weakest contributions to the ETF’s absolute performance were information technology, financials and real estate.
During the reporting period, which individual stocks made the strongest positive contributions to the ETF’s absolute performance and which stocks detracted the most?
On the basis of impact, which takes weightings and total returns into consideration, the stocks that made the strongest contributions to the ETF’s absolute performance during the reporting period were Immunovant and

Through its subsidiaries, Avaya Holdings provides business collaboration and communications software solutions. The company offers unified communications, contact centers, real-time video and collaboration services to clients worldwide.
How did the ETF’s sector weightings change during the reporting period?
The sectors experiencing the largest weighting increases in the ETF during the reporting period were real estate and energy. During the same period, the sectors with the most substantial weighting decreases were financials and information technology.
What were the largest positions in the ETF at the end of the reporting period?

IQ CBRE NextGen Real Estate ETF
How did IQ CBRE NextGen Real Estate ETF (formerly, IQ U.S. Real Estate Small Cap ETF) perform during the 12 months ended April 30, 2023?
For the 12 months ended April 30, 2023 (the “reporting period”), IQ CBRE NextGen Real Estate ETF returned −16.22% at NAV (net asset value) and −16.15% at market price.1 On September 1, 2022, the Fund’s underlying index changed from the IQ U.S. Real Estate Small Cap Index to the IQ CBRE NextGen Real Estate Index. To compare, the ETF’s Underlying Index, the IQ CBRE NextGen Real Estate Index2 returned –6.86% for the period September 1, 2022 to the period ended April 30, 2023. The FTSE Nareit All Equity REITs Index2 and Dow Jones U.S. Real Estate Index2 returned –16.09% and –14.58%, respectively, for the 12 months ended April 30, 2023.
What factors affected the ETF’s performance during the reporting period?
The IQ CBRE NextGen Real Estate Index, the ETF’s Underlying Index, seeks to provide exposure to real estate sectors and companies that are expected to benefit from large trends (“NextGen trends”) affecting the global economy over a secular, multi-year time horizon. The ETF primarily provides exposure to U.S. companies but also holds securities of issuers based in foreign markets.
Markets were whipsawed during the reporting period, as volatility ran high and investors struggled to make sense of a dizzying array of conflicting economic signals. Many of the headwinds that had raged during the previous reporting period lingered, including COVID-19-related supply-chain disruptions, worsening geopolitical disequilibrium stemming from Russia’s war in Ukraine and sharpening U.S./China tensions, and stubbornly high inflation. Overall, 2022 proved a difficult year for markets, with domestic stocks suffering their worst year since the 2008 Great Financial Crisis (the “GFC”) and bonds posting historically negative performance amid rapid, global, central bank tightening. Global stocks varied by geography but, if not since the GFC, they generally suffered their worst performance in multiple years. The first four months of 2023, while showing improvement, remained uneven.
Inflation, and central banks’ responses to it, arguably held primacy over all other factors. The U.S. Federal Reserve (the “Fed”) waged its most aggressive campaign in decades to tame inflation, sharply raising interest rates from a shallow range of 0.25% – 0.5% as of the start of the reporting period to 4.75% – 5% as of April 2023. Cracks from this abrupt pivot from near-zero rates emerged late in the reporting period, most notably with the collapse of two major regional banks, raising financial stability concerns.
Belying these challenges, other factors pointed in a positive direction. Employment and consumer spending remained robust, wages steadily rose, energy markets stabilized and China began to reopen from its zero-COVID-19 phase. Also, inflation, while still above the Fed’s target, trended downward and rates were increasingly believed to be at, or approaching, peak levels.
These crosscurrents weighed heavily on key asset class performance drivers, particularly commodities supply and demand, global trade activity and economic stability, earnings outlooks, interest-rate levels, credit spreads, commodity prices and currency volatility.
With an uncertain economic outlook throughout the reporting period, real estate faced several formidable headwinds, none more so than rising interests. Facing the most rapid series of interest rate increases since the 1980’s, real estate suffered as an asset class.
During the reporting period, which subsectors made the strongest contributions to the ETF’s performance and which subsectors made the weakest contributions?
On the basis of impact, which takes weightings and total returns into account, the subsectors that made the strongest contributions to the ETF’s absolute performance were student housing and health care, both

belonging to the generation change sector. The subsectors that made the weakest contributions to the ETF’s absolute performance were infrastructure (tower) and industrial, belonging to the digital transformation and ecommerce revolution sectors, respectively.
During the reporting period, which individual stocks made the strongest positive contributions to the ETF’s absolute performance and which stocks detracted the most?
On the basis of impact, which takes weightings and total returns into consideration, the stocks that made the strongest positive contributions to the ETF’s absolute performance during the reporting period were Keppel DC REIT and Americold Realty Trust. Keppel DC is Asia’s first pure-play datacenter REIT (real estate investment trust) listed on the Singapore Exchange. The company principally invests, directly or indirectly, in a diversified portfolio of income-producing real estate assets, which are used primarily for datacenter purposes and as real estate-related assets. Americold provides temperature-controlled food distribution services. The company offers warehousing, consolidation programs, shipment management, multi-vendor consolidation and logistics solutions, serving food producers, processors, distributors, wholesalers, retailers and restaurants worldwide.
The weakest contributors to the ETF’s absolute performance during the same period were Crown Castle and Prologis. Crown Castle, a REIT, owns, operates and leases towers and other infrastructure for wireless communications. The company manages and offers wireless communication coverage and infrastructure sites in the United States and Australia. Prologis owns and develops industrial real estate focused on global and regional markets across the Americas, Europe and Asia. The company also leases modern distribution facilities to customers, including manufacturers, retailers, transportation companies, third-party logistics providers and other enterprises.
How did the ETF’s subsector weightings change during the reporting period?
The subsectors experiencing the largest weighting increases in the ETF during the reporting period were datacenter and specialty. The two subsectors with the largest weighting decreases were infrastructure (tower) and student housing.
What were the largest positions in the ETF at the end of the reporting period?
As of April 30, 2023, the two largest positions in the ETF were Prologis, described above, and American Tower. American Tower, a REIT, owns, operates and develops wireless communications and broadcast towers in the United States. The company leases antennae sites on multi-tenant towers for a diverse range of wireless communications industries, including personal communications services, paging and cellular.

The FTSE Nareit All Equity REITs Index is a free-float adjusted, market capitalization-weighted index of U.S. equity REITs. Constituents of the index include all tax-qualified REITs with more than 50 percent of total assets in qualifying real estate assets other than mortgages secured by real property.

IQ FTSE International Equity Currency Neutral ETF
How did IQ FTSE International Equity Currency Neutral ETF perform during the 12 months ended April 30, 2023?
For the 12 months ended April 30, 2023 (the “reporting period”), IQ FTSE International Equity Currency Neutral ETF returned 8.31% at NAV (net asset value) and 10.19% at market price.1 To compare, the ETF’s Underlying Index, the FTSE Developed ex North America 50% Hedged to USD Net Tax (US RIC) Index2 returned 8.74% for the reporting period. The FTSE Developed ex North America 100% Hedged to USD Net Tax (US RIC) Index2 and FTSE Developed ex North America Net Tax (US RIC) Index2 returned 10.23% and 7.04%, respectively, for the same period.
What factors affected the ETF’s performance during the reporting period?
FTSE Developed ex North America 50% Hedged to USD Net Tax (US RIC) Index, the ETF’s Underlying Index, is an equity benchmark of international stocks from developed markets, with approximately half of the currency exposure of the securities included in the Index “hedged” against the U.S. dollar on a monthly basis.
Markets were whipsawed during the reporting period, as volatility ran high and investors struggled to make sense of a dizzying array of conflicting economic signals. Many of the headwinds that had raged during the previous reporting period lingered, including COVID-19-related supply-chain disruptions, worsening geopolitical disequilibrium stemming from Russia’s war in Ukraine and sharpening U.S./China tensions, and stubbornly high inflation. Overall, 2022 proved a difficult year for markets, with domestic stocks suffering their worst year since the 2008 Great Financial Crisis (the “GFC”) and bonds posting historically negative performance amid rapid, global, central bank tightening. Global stocks varied by geography but, if not since the GFC, they generally suffered their worst performance in multiple years. The first four months of 2023, while showing improvement, remained uneven.
Inflation, and central banks’ responses to it, arguably held primacy over all other factors. The U.S. Federal Reserve (the “Fed”) waged its most aggressive campaign in decades to tame inflation, sharply raising interest rates from a shallow range of 0.25% – 0.5% as of the start of the reporting period to 4.75% – 5% as of April 2023. Cracks from this abrupt pivot from near-zero rates emerged late in the reporting period, most notably with the collapse of two major regional banks, raising financial stability concerns.
Belying these challenges, other factors pointed in a positive direction. Employment and consumer spending remained robust, wages steadily rose, energy markets stabilized and China began to reopen from its zero-COVID-19 phase. Also, inflation, while still above the Fed’s target, trended downward and rates were increasingly believed to be at, or approaching, peak levels.
These crosscurrents weighed heavily on key asset class performance drivers, particularly commodities supply and demand, global trade activity and economic stability, earnings outlooks, interest-rate levels, credit spreads, commodity prices and currency volatility.
Global currency and international equity markets experienced sharp volatility throughout the reporting period, with the U.S. dollar surging to historic highs as the Fed outpaced other central banks with significantly higher rates. However, as the reporting period progressed, other central banks raised rates markedly as well, taking some of the air out of the soaring dollar. Against this backdrop, the ETF’s currency hedge provided a positive contribution to the ETF’s performance.
During the reporting period, how was the ETF’s performance materially affected by investments in derivatives?
Against the backdrop of a rising USD, the Underlying Index’s currency hedge positively contributed to performance, returning 1.69% over the reporting period.

IQ U.S. Mid Cap R&D Leaders ETF
How did IQ U.S. Mid Cap R&D Leaders ETF perform during the 12 months ended April 30, 2023?
For the 12 months ended April 30, 2023 (the “reporting period”), IQ U.S. Mid Cap R&D Leaders ETF returned −8.07% at NAV (net asset value) and −8.03% at market price.1 To compare, the ETF’s Underlying Index, the IQ U.S. Mid Cap R&D Leaders Index,2 and the Russell Midcap Growth Index2 returned −8.05% and 1.60%, respectively, for the reporting period.
What factors affected the ETF’s performance during the reporting period?
The IQ U.S. Mid Cap R&D Leaders Index, the ETF’s Underlying Index, seeks to provide exposure to highly innovative companies through the selection of equities in the U.S mid-cap universe with the highest R&D (research and development) spending in the past year. Companies with high R&D spending are investing for future growth in their business and may enjoy strong long-term competitive positioning.
Markets were whipsawed during the reporting period, as volatility ran high and investors struggled to make sense of a dizzying array of conflicting economic signals. Many of the headwinds that had raged during the previous reporting period lingered, including COVID-19-related supply-chain disruptions, worsening geopolitical disequilibrium stemming from Russia’s war in Ukraine and sharpening U.S./China tensions, and stubbornly high inflation. Overall, 2022 proved a difficult year for markets, with domestic stocks suffering their worst year since the 2008 Great Financial Crisis (the “GFC”) and bonds posting historically negative performance amid rapid, global, central bank tightening. Global stocks varied by geography but, if not since the GFC, they generally suffered their worst performance in multiple years. The first four months of 2023, while showing improvement, remained uneven.
Inflation, and central banks’ responses to it, arguably held primacy over all other factors. The U.S. Federal Reserve (the “Fed”) waged its most aggressive campaign in decades to tame inflation, sharply raising interest rates from a shallow range of 0.25% – 0.5% as of the start of the reporting period to 4.75% – 5% as of April 2023. Cracks from this abrupt pivot from near-zero rates emerged late in the reporting period, most notably with the collapse of two major regional banks, raising financial stability concerns.
Belying these challenges, other factors pointed in a positive direction. Employment and consumer spending remained robust, wages steadily rose, energy markets stabilized and China began to reopen from its zero-COVID-19 phase. Also, inflation, while still above the Fed’s target, trended downward and rates were increasingly believed to be at, or approaching, peak levels.
These crosscurrents weighed heavily on key asset class performance drivers, particularly commodities supply and demand, global trade activity and economic stability, earnings outlooks, interest-rate levels, credit spreads, commodity prices and currency volatility.
With an uncertain economic outlook throughout the reporting period, R&D spending was somewhat subdued and mid-cap stocks were out of favor, as investors sought refuge in larger, more established companies or higher-yielding alternatives amid rising interest rates.
During the reporting period, which sectors were the strongest positive contributors to the ETF’s performance and which sectors were particularly weak?
On the basis of impact, which takes weightings and total returns into account, the sectors that made the strongest contributions to the ETF’s absolute performance were communication services and materials. The sectors that made the weakest contributions to the ETF’s absolute performance were consumer discretionary and information technology.

IQ U.S. Large Cap R&D Leaders ETF
How did IQ U.S. Large Cap R&D Leaders ETF perform during the 12 months ended April 30, 2023?
For the 12 months ended April 30, 2023 (the “reporting period”), IQ U.S. Large Cap R&D Leaders ETF returned 3.95% at NAV (net asset value) and 4.08% at market price.1 To compare, the ETF’s Underlying Index, the IQ U.S. Large Cap R&D Leaders Index,2 and the Russell 1000 Growth Index2 returned 4.06% and 2.34%, respectively, for the reporting period.
What factors affected the ETF’s performance during the reporting period?
The IQ U.S. Large Cap R&D Leaders Index, the ETF’s Underlying Index, seeks to provide exposure to highly innovative companies through the selection of equities in the U.S. large cap universe with the highest R&D (research and development) spending in the past year. Companies with high R&D spending are investing for future growth in their business and may enjoy strong, long-term competitive positioning.
Markets were whipsawed during the reporting period, as volatility ran high and investors struggled to make sense of a dizzying array of conflicting economic signals. Many of the headwinds that had raged during the previous reporting period lingered, including COVID-19-related supply-chain disruptions, worsening geopolitical disequilibrium stemming from Russia’s war in Ukraine and sharpening U.S./China tensions, and stubbornly high inflation. Overall, 2022 proved a difficult year for markets, with domestic stocks suffering their worst year since the 2008 Great Financial Crisis (the “GFC”) and bonds posting historically negative performance amid rapid, global, central bank tightening. Global stocks varied by geography but, if not since the GFC, they generally suffered their worst performance in multiple years. The first four months of 2023, while showing improvement, remained uneven.
Inflation, and central banks’ responses to it, arguably held primacy over all other factors. The U.S. Federal Reserve (the “Fed”) waged its most aggressive campaign in decades to tame inflation, sharply raising interest rates from a shallow range of 0.25% – 0.5% as of the start of the reporting period to 4.75% – 5% as of April 2023. Cracks from this abrupt pivot from near-zero rates emerged late in the reporting period, most notably with the collapse of two major regional banks, raising financial stability concerns.
Belying these challenges, other factors pointed in a positive direction. Employment and consumer spending remained robust, wages steadily rose, energy markets stabilized and China began to reopen from its zero-COVID-19 phase. Also, inflation, while still above the Fed’s target, trended downward and rates were increasingly believed to be at, or approaching, peak levels.
These crosscurrents weighed heavily on key asset class performance drivers, particularly commodities supply and demand, global trade activity and economic stability, earnings outlooks, interest-rate levels, credit spreads, commodity prices and currency volatility.
With a uncertain economic outlook throughout the reporting period, R&D spending was somewhat subdued. However, amid this environment of uncertainty, investors sought safety in the type of companies that are targeted by the Underlying Index’s methodology — namely, established, large-cap companies that are at the forefront of innovation and generate strong free cash flows.
During the reporting period, which sectors were the strongest positive contributors to the ETF’s performance and which sectors were particularly weak?
On the basis of impact, which takes weightings and total returns into account, the sectors that made the strongest contributions to the ETF’s absolute performance were information technology and health care. The sectors that made the weakest contributions to the ETF’s absolute performance were consumer discretionary and financials.

IQ Global Resources ETF
How did IQ Global Resources ETF perform during the 12 months ended April 30, 2023?
For the 12 months ended April 30, 2023 (the “reporting period”), IQ Global Resources ETF returned 4.79% at NAV (net asset value) and 5.32% at market price.1 To compare, the ETF’s Underlying Index, IQ Global Resources Index2 returned 5.11% for the reporting period. The S&P Global Natural Resources Index (Net),2 Bloomberg Commodity Spot Index2 and MSCI World Index (Net)2 returned −1.54%, −22.26% and 3.18%, respectively, during the same period.
What factors affected the ETF’s performance during the reporting period?
The IQ Global Resources Index, the ETF’s Underlying Index, seeks investment results that track, before fees and expenses, the price and yield performance of the IQ Global Resources Index. The IQ Global Resources Index uses a tiered weighting approach to provide exposure to companies in commodity-specific market segments and whose equity securities trade in developed markets, including the United States. These segments include livestock; precious metals; grains, food & fiber; energy; industrial metals; timber; and water.
Markets were whipsawed during the reporting period, as volatility ran high and investors struggled to make sense of a dizzying array of conflicting economic signals. Many of the headwinds that had raged during the previous reporting period lingered, including COVID-19-related supply-chain disruptions, worsening geopolitical disequilibrium stemming from Russia’s war in Ukraine and sharpening U.S./China tensions, and stubbornly high inflation. Overall, 2022 proved a difficult year for markets, with domestic stocks suffering their worst year since the 2008 Great Financial Crisis (the”GFC”) and bonds posting historically negative performance amid rapid, global, central bank tightening.

The first four months of 2023, while showing improvement, remained uneven.
Inflation, and central banks’ responses to it, arguably held primacy over all other factors. The U.S. Federal Reserve (the “Fed”) waged its most aggressive campaign in decades to tame inflation, sharply raising interest rates from a shallow range of 0.25% – 0.5% as of the start of the reporting period to 4.75% – 5% as of April 2023. Cracks from this abrupt pivot from near-zero rates emerged late in the reporting period, most notably with the collapse of two major regional banks, raising financial stability concerns.
Belying these challenges, other factors pointed in a positive direction. Employment and consumer spending remained robust, wages steadily rose, energy markets stabilized and China began to reopen from its zero-COVID-19 phase. Also, inflation, while still above the Fed’s target, trended downward and rates were increasingly believed to be at, or approaching, peak levels.
These crosscurrents weighed heavily on key asset class performance drivers, particularly commodities supply and demand, global trade activity and economic stability, earnings outlooks, interest-rate levels, credit spreads, commodity prices and currency volatility.
With constrained supply from lingering COVID-19 disruptions coinciding with stabilizing global economies and rising demand, commodities and natural resources generally outperformed most other market segments. Steadily mixed economic data led to considerable volatility over the reporting period, with the prospects of commodities sectors ebbing and flowing with changes in investor sentiment.
During the reporting period, which subsectors were the strongest positive contributors to the ETF’s performance and which subsectors were particularly weak?
On the basis of impact, which takes weightings and total returns into account, the subsectors making the strongest contributions to the ETF’s absolute performance were energy and grains, food & fiber. The subsectors making the weakest contributions to the ETF’s absolute performance were livestock and timber.

IQ Real Return ETF
How did IQ Real Return ETF perform during the 12 months ended April 30, 2023?
For the 12 months ended April 30, 2023 (the “reporting period”), IQ Real Return ETF returned −2.30% at NAV (net asset value) and −2.40% at market price.1 To compare, the ETF’s Underlying Index, Bloomberg IQ Multi-Asset Inflation Index returned –2.03% for the same period. The Bloomberg U.S. Treasury Inflation Notes 1-10 Year Index2 and the Bloomberg U.S. Short Treasury Bond Index2 returned −1.82% and 2.62%, respectively, for the same period.
What factors affected the ETF’s performance during the reporting period?
The Bloomberg IQ Multi-Asset Inflation Index, the ETF’s Underlying Index is designed to give exposure to inflation-sensitive securities and tracks the performance of a weighted long position across the equity, fixed income and commodity asset classes.
Markets were whipsawed during the reporting period, as volatility ran high and investors struggled to make sense of a dizzying array of conflicting economic signals. Many of the headwinds that had raged during the previous reporting period lingered, including COVID-19-related supply-chain disruptions, worsening geopolitical disequilibrium stemming from Russia’s war in Ukraine and sharpening U.S./China tensions, and stubbornly high inflation. Overall, 2022 proved a difficult year for markets, with stocks suffering their worst year since the 2008 Great Financial Crisis and bonds posting historically negative performance amid rapid, global, central bank tightening. The first four months of 2023, while showing improvement, remained uneven.
Inflation, and central banks’ responses to it, arguably held primacy over all other factors. The U.S. Federal Reserve (the “Fed”) waged its most aggressive campaign in decades to tame inflation, sharply raising interest rates from a shallow range of 0.25% – 0.5% as of the start of the reporting period to 4.75% – 5% as of April 2023. Cracks from this abrupt pivot from near-zero rates emerged late in the reporting period, most notably with the collapse of two major regional banks, raising financial stability concerns.
Belying these challenges, other factors pointed in a positive direction. Employment and consumer spending remained robust, wages steadily rose, energy markets stabilized and China began to reopen from its zero-COVID-19 phase. Also, inflation, while still above the Fed’s target, trended downward and rates were increasingly believed to be at, or approaching, peak levels.
These crosscurrents weighed heavily on key asset class performance drivers, particularly earnings outlooks, interest-rate levels, credit spreads, commodity prices and currency volatility.
During the reporting period, which sectors were the strongest positive contributors to the ETF’s performance and which sectors made the weakest contributions?
On the basis of impact, which takes weightings and total returns into account, the sectors that made the strongest contributions to the ETF’s absolute performance were information technology and energy. The sectors that made the weakest contributions to the ETF’s absolute performance were consumer staples and real estate. The TIPS sleeve, comprising approximately 60% of the Underlying Index, was the greatest detractor from performance, amid the Federal Reserve’s historically fast rate tightening campaign to combat sharply above-target inflation.
During the reporting period, which individual stocks made the strongest positive contributions to the ETF’s absolute performance and which stocks detracted the most?
On the basis of impact, which takes weightings and total returns into consideration, the stocks that made the strongest contributions to the ETF’s absolute performance during the reporting period were Apple and Microsoft. Apple designs, manufactures and markets smartphones, personal computers, tablets, wearables and accessories. The company also offers payment, digital content, cloud and advertising services. Apple

IQ Clean Oceans ETF
How did IQ Clean Oceans ETF perform during the 12 months ended April 30, 2023?
For the 12 months ended April 30, 2023 (the “reporting period”), IQ Clean Oceans ETF returned 2.59% at NAV (net asset value) and 3.55% at market price.1 To compare, the ETF’s Underlying Index, the IQ Candriam Clean Oceans Index,2 and the MSCI World Index (Net)2 returned 3.19% and 3.18%, respectively, for the reporting period.
What factors affected the ETF’s performance during the reporting period?
The IQ Candriam Clean Oceans Index, the ETF’s Underlying Index, seeks to track companies that help to protect and/or achieve cleaner oceans through reduced pollution and increased resource efficiency.
Markets were whipsawed during the reporting period, as volatility ran high and investors struggled to make sense of a dizzying array of conflicting economic signals. Many of the headwinds that had raged during the previous reporting period lingered, including COVID-19-related supply-chain disruptions, worsening geopolitical disequilibrium stemming from Russia’s war in Ukraine and sharpening U.S./China tensions, and stubbornly high inflation Overall, 2022 proved a difficult year for markets, with domestic stocks suffering their worst year since the 2008 Great Financial Crisis (the “GFC”) and bonds posting historically negative performance amid rapid, global, central bank tightening. Global stocks varied by geography but, if not since the GFC, they generally suffered their worst performance in multiple years. The first four months of 2023, while showing improvement, remained uneven.
Inflation, and central banks’ responses to it, arguably held primacy over all other factors. The U.S. Federal Reserve (the “Fed”) waged its most aggressive campaign in decades to tame inflation, sharply raising interest rates from a shallow range of 0.25% – 0.5% as of the start of the reporting period to 4.75% – 5% as of April 2023.

IQ Cleaner Transport ETF
How did IQ Cleaner Transport ETF perform during the 12 months ended April 30, 2023?
For the 12 months ended April 30, 2023 (the “reporting period”), IQ Cleaner Transport ETF returned 2.59% at NAV (net asset value) and 4.39% at market price.1 To compare, the ETF’s Underlying Index, the IQ Candriam Cleaner Transport Index,2 and the MSCI World Index (Net)2 returned 3.04% and 3.18%, respectively, for the same period.
What factors affected the ETF’s performance during the reporting period?
The IQ Candriam Cleaner Transport Index, the ETF’s Benchmark Index, is a rules-based, modified capitalization weighted, float-adjusted index. Developed in alignment with the National Wildlife Federation (“NWF”), the largest conservation organization in the United States, the ETF provides exposure to select global companies that support the transition to more environmentally efficient transportation technologies, such as electric vehicles, bicycles, motor vehicle parts manufacturers and multi-passenger transportation.3
Markets were whipsawed during the reporting period, as volatility ran high and investors struggled to make sense of a dizzying array of conflicting economic signals. Many of the headwinds that had raged during the previous reporting period lingered, including COVID-19-related supply-chain disruptions, worsening geopolitical disequilibrium stemming from Russia’s war in Ukraine and sharpening U.S./China tensions, and stubbornly high inflation.

TABLE OF CONTENTS
Fund Expenses (unaudited)
As a shareholder of a fund, you incur two types of costs: (1) transaction costs on purchases and sales and (2) ongoing costs, including Advisory fees and other fund expenses. This example is intended to help you understand your ongoing costs (in dollars) of investing in a fund and to compare these costs with the ongoing costs of investing in other funds. Shareholders may pay brokerage commissions on their purchase and sale of a Fund, which are not reflected in the example.
The examples are based on an investment of  $1,000 invested at the beginning of the period and held for the entire period as indicated below.
Actual Expenses
The first line of the table below provides information about actual account values and actual expenses. You may use the information together with the amount you invested, in a particular fund, to estimate the expenses that you paid over the period. Simply divide your account value by $1,000 (for example, an $8,600 account value divided by $1,000 = 8.6), then multiply the result by the number in the first line under the heading entitled “Expenses Paid During the Period 11/01/2022 to 04/30/23” to estimate the expenses you paid on your account during this period. To the extent a Fund invests in other ETFs, that Fund will indirectly bear its pro rata share of the expenses incurred by the underlying ETF investments in which each such Fund invests. These expenses are not included in the table.
Hypothetical Example for Comparison Purposes
The second line of the table below also provides information about hypothetical account values and hypothetical expenses based on each Fund’s actual expense ratio and an assumed annual rate of return of 5% before expenses, which are not the Funds’ actual returns. The hypothetical account values and expenses may not be used to estimate the actual ending account balance or expenses you paid for the period. You may use this information to compare the ongoing costs of investing in a fund and other funds. To do so, compare this 5% hypothetical example with the 5% hypothetical examples that appear in the shareholder reports of other funds. To the extent a Fund invests in other ETFs, that Fund will indirectly bear its pro rata share of the expenses incurred by the underlying fund investments in which the Fund invests. These expenses are not included in the table.
Please note that the expenses shown in the table are meant to highlight your ongoing costs only and do not reflect any transactional costs. Therefore, the hypothetical example is useful in comparing ongoing costs only, and will not help you determine the relative total costs of owning different funds. In addition, if these transactional costs were included, your costs would have been higher.
