VictoryShares US 500 Volatility Wtd ETF Summary
Investment Objective
The VictoryShares US 500 Volatility Wtd ETF (the “Fund”) seeks to provide investment results that track the performance of the Nasdaq Victory US Large Cap 500 Volatility Weighted Index (the “Index”) before fees and expenses.
Fund Fees and Expenses
This table describes the fees and expenses that you may pay if you buy, hold, and sell shares of the Fund. You may pay other fees, such as brokerage commissions and other fees to financial intermediaries, which are not reflected in the tables and examples below.

Victory Capital Management Inc. (the “Adviser”) has contractually agreed to waive its management fee and/or reimburse expenses so that the total annual fund operating expenses (excluding certain items such as interest, taxes, and brokerage commissions) do not exceed 0.35% through at least October 31, 2024. The Adviser is permitted to recoup advisory fees waived and expenses reimbursed for up to three years after the date of the waiver or reimbursement, subject to the lesser of any operating expense limits in effect at the time of (a) the original waiver or expense reimbursement; or (b) the recoupment, after giving effect to the recoupment amount. This agreement may only be terminated by the Fund’s Board of Trustees.
Example:
This Example is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund with the cost of investing in other funds. The example assumes that (1) you invest $10,000 in the Fund for the time periods indicated and then sell or continue to hold all of your shares at the end of the period, (2) your investment has a 5% return each year, and (3) the Fund’s operating expenses remain the same. The amounts shown reflect any fee waiver/expense reimbursement in place through its expiration date. Although your actual costs may be higher or lower, based upon these assumptions your costs would be:
1 Year
3 Years
5 Years
10 Years
$36
$121
$215
$489
Portfolio Turnover:
The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or “turns over” its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover will generally indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual Fund operating expenses or in the example, affect the Fund’s performance. For the most recent fiscal year, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate was 24% of the average value of its portfolio.

VictoryShares US 500 Volatility Wtd ETF Summary
Principal Investment Strategy
The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing, under normal market conditions, at least 80% of its assets directly or indirectly in the securities included in the Nasdaq Victory US Large Cap 500 Volatility Weighted Index (the “Index”), an unmanaged, volatility weighted index maintained exclusively by Nasdaq, Inc. (the “Index Provider”). The Index Provider is not affiliated with the Fund or the Adviser.
The Index combines fundamental criteria with individual security risk control achieved through volatility weighting of individual securities. The Index follows a rules-based methodology to construct its constituent securities:
The Index universe begins with all publicly traded U.S. stocks and then screens for all companies with positive earnings over the last twelve months.
The Index identifies the 500 largest U.S. stocks by market capitalization measured at the time the Index’s constituent securities are determined.
The 500 stocks are weighted based on their daily standard deviation (volatility) of daily price changes over the last 180 trading days. Stocks with lower volatility receive a higher weighting and stocks with higher volatility receive a lower weighting.
The Index is reconstituted every March and September (based on information as of the prior month-end) and is adjusted to limit exposure to any particular sector to 25%. The Index may include more than or fewer than 500 stocks depending on the number of companies meeting the Index’s criteria. As of September 30, 2023, the Index had a market capitalization range from $0.5 billion to $2.7 trillion.
The Fund generally seeks to track the returns of the Index before fees and expenses by employing a replication strategy that seeks to hold all the stocks in the Index.
Principal Risks of Investing in the Fund
The Fund’s investments are subject to the following principal risks:
Equity Securities Risk — The value of the equity securities in which the Fund invests may decline in response to developments affecting individual companies and/or general economic conditions in the United States or abroad. A company’s earnings or dividends may not increase as expected (or may decline) because of poor management, competitive pressures, reliance on particular suppliers or geographical regions, labor problems or shortages, corporate restructurings, fraudulent disclosures, man-made or natural disasters, military confrontations or wars, terrorism, public health crises, or other events, conditions, and factors. Price changes may be temporary or last for extended periods.
Market Risk — Overall market risks may affect the value of the Fund. Domestic and international factors such as political events, war, terrorism, trade disputes, inflation rates, interest rate levels, and other fiscal and monetary policy changes; cybersecurity incidents, pandemics, and other public health crises; sanctions against a particular foreign country, its nationals, businesses, or industries; and related geopolitical events, as well as environmental disasters such as earthquakes, fires, and floods, or other catastrophes, may add to instability in global economies and markets generally, and may lead to increased market volatility. Global economies and financial markets are highly interconnected, which increases the possibility that conditions in one country or region might adversely affect issuers in another country or region. The impact of these and other factors may be short-term or may last for extended periods.
Large-Capitalization Stock Risk — The securities of large-sized companies may underperform the securities of smaller-sized companies or the market as a whole. The growth rate of larger, more established companies may lag those of smaller companies, especially during periods of economic expansion.
2

VictoryShares US 500 Volatility Wtd ETF Summary
Index Risk — The Fund attempts to track the performance of the Index. The Fund’s performance will be negatively affected by general declines in the securities and asset classes represented in the Index. In addition, because the Fund is not actively managed, unless a specific security is removed from the Index, the Fund generally will not sell a security because the security’s issuer was in financial trouble. The Fund also does not attempt to take defensive positions under any market conditions, including declining markets. Therefore, the Fund’s performance could be lower than funds that may actively shift their portfolio assets to take advantage of market opportunities or to lessen the impact of a market decline or a decline in the value of one or more issuers.
Passive Investment Risk — The Fund is not actively managed, and the Adviser does not take defensive positions under any market conditions, including declining markets.
Calculation Methodology Risk — The Index relies on various sources of information to assess the criteria of issuers included in the Index, including information that may be based on assumptions and estimates. Neither the Fund, the Index Provider, nor the Adviser can offer assurances that the Index’s calculation methodology or sources of information will provide an accurate assessment of included issuers or correct valuation of securities, nor can they guarantee the availability or timeliness of the production of the Index.
Tracking Error Risk — The Fund may be subject to tracking error, which is the divergence of the Fund’s performance from its index. Tracking error may occur because of, among other reasons, differences between the securities and other instruments held in the Fund’s portfolio and those included in the Index. This risk may be heightened during times of increased market volatility or other unusual market conditions. Tracking error also may result because the Fund incurs fees and expenses, while the Index does not.
Rebalancing Risk — In purchasing and selling securities to rebalance its portfolio, the Fund will pay more in brokerage commissions than it would without a rebalancing policy. As a result of the need to rebalance, the Fund also has less flexibility in the timing of purchases and sales of securities than it would otherwise, and the rebalancing may result in high portfolio turnover. While we will attempt to minimize any adverse impact to the Fund or its shareholders, the Fund may have a higher proportion of capital gains and a lower return than a fund that does not have a rebalancing policy. Errors in index data, index computations or the construction of the index in accordance with its methodology may occur from time to time and may not be identified and corrected by the Index Provider for a period of time or at all, which may have an adverse impact on the Fund and its shareholders.
Exchange-Traded Fund (“ETF”) Structure Risk — The Fund is structured as an ETF and, as a result, is subject to special risks, including:
Not Individually Redeemable — The Fund’s shares are not individually redeemable and may be redeemed by the Fund at its net asset value per share (“NAV”) only in large blocks known as Creation Units. The Fund may incur brokerage costs purchasing enough shares to constitute a Creation Unit. Alternatively, the Fund may redeem your shares by selling them on the secondary market at prevailing market prices.
Trading Issues — Trading in shares on the exchange operated by Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (the “Exchange”) may be halted due to market conditions or for reasons that, in the view of the Exchange, make trading in shares inadvisable, such as extraordinary market volatility. There can be no assurance that shares will continue to meet the listing requirements of the Exchange. There is no guarantee that an active secondary market will develop for the shares. In stressed market conditions, authorized participants may be unwilling to participate in the creation/redemption process, particularly if the market for shares becomes less liquid in response to deteriorating liquidity in the markets for the Fund’s underlying portfolio holdings, which may lead to widening of bid-ask spreads and differences between the market price of the shares and the underlying value of those shares.
3

VictoryShares US 500 Volatility Wtd ETF Summary
Market Price Variance Risk — The market prices of shares will fluctuate in response to changes in NAV and supply and demand for shares and will include a bid-ask spread charged by the exchange specialists, market makers, or other participants that trade the particular security. There may be times when the market price and the NAV vary significantly, particularly in times of market stress. This means that shares may trade at a premium or discount to NAV and bid-ask spreads may widen.
Authorized Participants Concentration Risk — A limited number of financial institutions may be responsible for all or a significant portion of the creation and redemption activity for the Fund. If these firms exit the business or are unable or unwilling to process creation and/or redemption orders, shares may trade at a premium or discount to NAV and bid-ask spreads may widen.
Intraday Indicative Value (“IIV”) Risk — The Exchange intends to disseminate the approximate per share value of the Fund’s published basket of securities (“Deposit Securities”) every 15 seconds (the “intraday indicative value” or “IIV”). The IIV is not a real-time update of the NAV per share of the Fund because the IIV may not be calculated in the same manner as the NAV. For example, the calculation of the NAV may be subject to fair valuation at different prices than those used in the calculations of the IIV and, unlike the calculation of NAV, the IIV does not take into account Fund expenses. The IIV calculations are based on local market prices and may not reflect events that occur subsequent to the local market’s close which could affect premiums and discounts between the IIV and the market price of the shares. In addition, the IIV is based on the published Deposit Securities and not on the Fund’s actual holdings.
Tax-Efficiency Risk — Redemptions of shares may be effected for cash, rather than in kind, which means that the Fund may need to sell portfolio securities in order to complete an in-cash redemption, and may recognize net gains on these sales. As a result, investments in the shares may be less tax-efficient than investments in ETFs that redeem solely or principally in kind, and the Fund may pay out higher annual capital gain distributions than if the in-kind redemption process was used.
Valuation Risk — The sale price the Fund could receive for a security may differ from the Fund’s valuation of the security and may differ from the value used by the Index, particularly for securities that trade in low volume or volatile markets or that are valued using a fair value methodology. The Fund relies on various sources to calculate its NAV. The information may be provided by third parties that are believed to be reliable, but the information may not be accurate due to errors by such pricing sources, technological issues, or otherwise.
You may lose money by investing in the Fund. There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its objective. An investment in the Fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency.
By itself, the Fund does not constitute a complete investment plan and should be considered a long-term investment for investors who can afford to weather changes in the value of their investment.

After-tax returns use the historical highest individual federal marginal income tax rates and do not reflect the effect of state and local taxes. In certain situations, the return after taxes on distributions and sale of fund shares may be higher than the other return amounts. A higher after-tax return may result when a capital loss occurs upon redemption and translates into an assumed tax deduction that benefits the shareholder. Actual after-tax returns depend on your tax situation and may differ from those shown. After-tax returns shown are not relevant if you own your Fund shares through tax-deferred arrangements, such as 401(k) plans or individual retirement accounts.
Management of the Fund
Investment Adviser
Victory Capital Management Inc. (the “Adviser”) serves as the Fund’s investment adviser. The portfolio manager primarily responsible for day-to-day management of the Fund is a member of the Adviser's Victory Solutions platform, which oversees the Adviser's rules-basedinvestment strategies.

Since 2018
Purchase and Sale of Fund Shares
The Fund will issue and redeem shares at NAV only in large blocks of 50,000 shares (each block of shares is called a “Creation Unit”). Creation Units are issued and redeemed for cash and/or in-kind for securities by Authorized Participants (“APs”) that have entered into agreements with the Fund’s distributor. Except when aggregated in Creation Units, shares are not redeemable securities of the Fund.
Shares of the Fund are listed for trading on the Exchange. Individual shares may only be purchased and sold in the secondary market through a broker or dealer at a market price. Because shares of the Fund trade at market prices rather than NAV, shares may trade at a price that is greater than (a premium), at, or less than (a discount) NAV. An investor may incur costs attributable to the difference between the highest price a buyer is willing to pay to purchase shares (bid) and the lowest price a seller is willing to accept for shares (ask) when buying or selling shares in the secondary market (the “bid-ask spread”).
For recent information about the Fund, including the Fund’s NAV, market price, premiums and discounts, and bid-ask spreads, visit vcm.com.
Tax Information
The Fund’s distributions generally are taxable as ordinary income, qualified dividend income, or capital gains. A sale of shares may result in a capital gain or loss.
Payments to Broker-Dealers and Other Financial Intermediaries
If you purchase shares through a broker-dealer or other financial intermediary (such as a bank), the Fund and its related companies may pay the intermediary for the sale of shares and related services. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing the broker-dealer or other intermediary and your salesperson to recommend the Fund over another investment. Ask your salesperson or visit your financial intermediary’s website for more information.

Principal Risks of Investing in the Fund
The Fund’s investments are subject to the following principal risks:
Equity Securities Risk — The value of the equity securities in which the Fund invests may decline in response to developments affecting individual companies and/or general economic conditions in the United States or abroad. A company’s earnings or dividends may not increase as expected (or may decline) because of poor management, competitive pressures, reliance on particular suppliers or geographical regions, labor problems or shortages, corporate restructurings, fraudulent disclosures, man-made or natural disasters, military confrontations or wars, terrorism, public health crises, or other events, conditions, and factors. Price changes may be temporary or last for extended periods.
Market Risk — Overall market risks may affect the value of the Fund. Domestic and international factors such as political events, war, terrorism, trade disputes, inflation rates, interest rate levels, and other fiscal and monetary policy changes; cybersecurity incidents, pandemics, and other public health crises; sanctions against a particular foreign country, its nationals, businesses, or industries; and related geopolitical events, as well as environmental disasters such as earthquakes, fires, and floods, or other catastrophes, may add to instability in global economies and markets generally, and may lead to increased market volatility. Global economies and financial markets are highly interconnected, which increases the possibility that conditions in one country or region might adversely affect issuers in another country or region. The impact of these and other factors may be short-term or may last for extended periods.
Small-Capitalization Stock Risk — Investments in small-capitalization companies involve greater risks than those associated with larger, more established companies. These securities may be subject to more abrupt or erratic price movements and may lack sufficient market liquidity, making it difficult for a Fund to buy and sell them at the time and price desired, and these issuers often face greater business risks. Small-capitalization companies typically are less financially stable than larger, more
8

VictoryShares US Small Cap Volatility Wtd ETF Summary
established companies, and may depend on a small number of key personnel, making them vulnerable to loss of personnel. These companies also generally have less diverse product lines than larger capitalization companies and are more susceptible to adverse developments related to their products.
Liquidity Risk — In certain circumstances, such as the disruption of the orderly markets for the investments in which the Fund invests, the Fund might not be able to dispose of certain holdings quickly or at prices that represent true market value in the judgment of the Adviser. Markets for the investments in which the Fund invests may be disrupted by a number of events, including but not limited to economic crises, natural disasters, new legislation, or regulatory changes, and may prevent the Fund from limiting losses, realizing gains or achieving a high correlation with the Index.
Index Risk — The Fund attempts to track the performance of the Index. The Fund’s performance will be negatively affected by general declines in the securities and asset classes represented in the Index. In addition, because the Fund is not actively managed, unless a specific security is removed from the Index, the Fund generally will not sell a security because the security’s issuer was in financial trouble. The Fund also does not attempt to take defensive positions under any market conditions, including declining markets. Therefore, the Fund’s performance could be lower than funds that may actively shift their portfolio assets to take advantage of market opportunities or to lessen the impact of a market decline or a decline in the value of one or more issuers.
Passive Investment Risk — The Fund is not actively managed, and the Adviser does not take defensive positions under any market conditions, including declining markets.
Calculation Methodology Risk — The Index relies on various sources of information to assess the criteria of issuers included in the Index, including information that may be based on assumptions and estimates. Neither the Fund, the Index Provider, nor the Adviser can offer assurances that the Index’s calculation methodology or sources of information will provide an accurate assessment of included issuers or correct valuation of securities, nor can they guarantee the availability or timeliness of the production of the Index.
Tracking Error Risk — The Fund may be subject to tracking error, which is the divergence of the Fund’s performance from its index. Tracking error may occur because of, among other reasons, differences between the securities and other instruments held in the Fund’s portfolio and those included in the Index. This risk may be heightened during times of increased market volatility or other unusual market conditions. Tracking error also may result because the Fund incurs fees and expenses, while the Index does not.
Rebalancing Risk — In purchasing and selling securities to rebalance its portfolio, the Fund will pay more in brokerage commissions than it would without a rebalancing policy. As a result of the need to rebalance, the Fund also has less flexibility in the timing of purchases and sales of securities than it would otherwise, and the rebalancing may result in high portfolio turnover. While we will attempt to minimize any adverse impact to the Fund or its shareholders, the Fund may have a higher proportion of capital gains and a lower return than a fund that does not have a rebalancing policy. Errors in index data, index computations or the construction of the index in accordance with its methodology may occur from time to time and may not be identified and corrected by the Index Provider for a period of time or at all, which may have an adverse impact on the Fund and its shareholders.
Exchange-Traded Fund (“ETF”) Structure Risk — The Fund is structured as an ETF and, as a result, is subject to special risks, including:
Not Individually Redeemable — The Fund’s shares are not individually redeemable and may be redeemed by the Fund at its net asset value per share (“NAV”) only in large blocks known as Creation Units. The Fund may incur brokerage costs purchasing enough shares to constitute a Creation Unit. Alternatively, the Fund may redeem your shares by selling them on the secondary market at prevailing market prices.

After-tax returns use the historical highest individual federal marginal income tax rates and do not reflect the effect of state and local taxes. In certain situations, the return after taxes on distributions and sale of fund shares may be higher than the other return amounts. A higher after-tax return may result when a capital loss occurs upon redemption and translates into an assumed tax deduction that benefits the shareholder. Actual after-tax returns depend on your tax situation and may differ from

Purchase and Sale of Fund Shares
The Fund will issue and redeem shares at NAV only in large blocks of 50,000 shares (each block of shares is called a “Creation Unit”). Creation Units are issued and redeemed for cash and/or in-kind for securities by Authorized Participants (“APs”) that have entered into agreements with the Fund’s distributor. Except when aggregated in Creation Units, shares are not redeemable securities of the Fund.
Shares of the Fund are listed for trading on the Exchange. Individual shares may only be purchased and sold in the secondary market through a broker or dealer at a market price. Because shares of the Fund trade at market prices rather than NAV, shares may trade at a price that is greater than (a premium), at, or less than (a discount) NAV. An investor may incur costs attributable to the difference between the highest price a buyer is willing to pay to purchase shares (bid) and the lowest price a seller is willing to accept for shares (ask) when buying or selling shares in the secondary market (the “bid-ask spread”).
For recent information about the Fund, including the Fund’s NAV, market price, premiums and discounts, and bid-ask spreads, visit vcm.com.
Tax Information
The Fund’s distributions generally are taxable as ordinary income, qualified dividend income, or capital gains. A sale of shares may result in a capital gain or loss.
Payments to Broker-Dealers and Other Financial Intermediaries
If you purchase shares through a broker-dealer or other financial intermediary (such as a bank), the Fund and its related companies may pay the intermediary for the sale of shares and related services. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing the broker-dealer or other intermediary and your salesperson to recommend the Fund over another investment. Ask your salesperson or visit your financial intermediary’s website for more information.

Investment Objective
The VictoryShares International Volatility Wtd ETF (the “Fund”) seeks to provide investment results that track the performance of the Nasdaq Victory International 500 Volatility Weighted Index (the “Index”) before fees and expenses.

Victory Capital Management Inc. (the “Adviser”) has contractually agreed to waive its management fee and/or reimburse expenses so that the total annual fund operating expenses (excluding certain items such as interest, taxes, and brokerage commissions) do not exceed 0.45% through at least October 31, 2024. The Adviser is permitted to recoup advisory fees waived and expenses reimbursed for up to three years after the date of the waiver or reimbursement, subject to the lesser of any operating expense limits in effect at the time of (a) the original waiver or expense reimbursement; or (b) the recoupment, after giving effect to the recoupment amount. This agreement may only be terminated by the Fund’s Board of Trustees.
Example:
This Example is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund with the cost of investing in other funds. The example assumes that (1) you invest $10,000 in the Fund for the time periods indicated and then sell or continue to hold all of your shares at the end of the period, (2) your investment has a 5% return each year, and (3) the Fund’s operating expenses remain the same. The amounts shown reflect any fee waiver/expense reimbursement in place through its expiration date. Although your actual costs may be higher or lower, based upon these assumptions your costs would be:
1 Year

$186
$338
$780
Portfolio Turnover:
The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or “turns over” its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover will generally indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual Fund operating expenses or in the example, affect the Fund’s performance. For the most recent fiscal year, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate was 30% of the average value of its portfolio.

VictoryShares International Volatility Wtd ETF Summary
Principal Investment Strategy
The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing, under normal market conditions, at least 80% of its assets directly or indirectly in the securities included in the Nasdaq Victory International 500 Volatility Weighted Index (the “Index”), an unmanaged, volatility weighted index maintained exclusively by Nasdaq, Inc. (the “Index Provider”). The Index Provider is not affiliated with the Fund or the Adviser.
The Index combines fundamental criteria with individual security risk control achieved through volatility weighting of individual securities. The Index follows a rules-based methodology to construct its constituent securities:
The Index universe begins with all publicly traded foreign companies and then screens for all companies with positive earnings over the last twelve months.
The Index identifies the 500 largest foreign companies by market capitalization measured at the time the Index’s constituent securities are determined.
The 500 stocks are weighted based on their daily standard deviation (volatility) of daily price changes over the last 180 trading days. Stocks with lower volatility receive a higher weighting and stocks with higher volatility receive a lower weighting.
The Index considers foreign companies to be those that are organized or domiciled in a developed country (excluding the U.S. and emerging markets) and whose stock principally trades on a foreign exchange. Representative developed markets include Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Hong Kong and Australia.
The Index is reconstituted every March and September (based on information as of the prior month-end) and is adjusted to limit exposure to any particular country to 20% and any particular sector to 25%. The Index may include more than or fewer than 500 stocks depending on the number of companies meeting the Index’s criteria.
The Fund seeks to track the returns of the Index before fees and expenses by employing, under normal circumstances, a “sampling” process to invest in a representative sample of stocks included in the Index. The Fund’s portfolio managers select these stocks using a statistical optimization process designed to produce investment characteristics that closely approximate those of the Index.
Principal Risks of Investing in the Fund
The Fund’s investments are subject to the following principal risks:
Equity Securities Risk — The value of the equity securities in which the Fund invests may decline in response to developments affecting individual companies and/or general economic conditions in the United States or abroad. A company’s earnings or dividends may not increase as expected (or may decline) because of poor management, competitive pressures, reliance on particular suppliers or geographical regions, labor problems or shortages, corporate restructurings, fraudulent disclosures, man-made or natural disasters, military confrontations or wars, terrorism, public health crises, or other events, conditions, and factors. Price changes may be temporary or last for extended periods.
Market Risk — Overall market risks may affect the value of the Fund. Domestic and international factors such as political events, war, terrorism, trade disputes, inflation rates, interest rate levels, and other fiscal and monetary policy changes; cybersecurity incidents, pandemics, and other public health crises; sanctions against a particular foreign country, its nationals, businesses, or industries; and related geopolitical events, as well as environmental disasters such as earthquakes, fires, and floods, or other catastrophes, may add to instability in global economies and markets generally, and may lead to increased market volatility. Global economies and financial markets are highly interconnected, which increases the possibility that conditions in one country or region might adversely affect issuers in another country or region. The impact of these and other factors may be short-term or may last for extended periods.
14

VictoryShares International Volatility Wtd ETF Summary
Foreign Securities Risk — Foreign securities (including depositary receipts) are subject to political, regulatory, and economic risks not present in domestic investments. Foreign securities could be affected by factors not present in the United States, including expropriation, confiscation of property, and difficulties in enforcing contracts. Compared to U.S. companies, there generally is less publicly available information about foreign companies and there may be less governmental regulation and supervision of foreign companies. Foreign securities generally experience more volatility than their domestic counterparts. Depositary receipts may have additional risks, including creditworthiness of the depositary bank and the risk of an illiquid market. In addition, to the extent investments are made in a limited number of countries, events in those countries will have a more significant impact on the Fund. Fluctuations in the exchange rates between the U.S. dollar and foreign currencies, currency exchange control regulations, and restrictions or prohibitions on the repatriation of foreign currencies may negatively affect an investment.
Index Risk — The Fund attempts to track the performance of the Index. The Fund’s performance will be negatively affected by general declines in the securities and asset classes represented in the Index. In addition, because the Fund is not actively managed, unless a specific security is removed from the Index, the Fund generally will not sell a security because the security’s issuer was in financial trouble. The Fund also does not attempt to take defensive positions under any market conditions, including declining markets. Therefore, the Fund’s performance could be lower than funds that may actively shift their portfolio assets to take advantage of market opportunities or to lessen the impact of a market decline or a decline in the value of one or more issuers.
Passive Investment Risk — The Fund is not actively managed, and the Adviser does not take defensive positions under any market conditions, including declining markets.
Calculation Methodology Risk — The Index relies on various sources of information to assess the criteria of issuers included in the Index, including information that may be based on assumptions and estimates. Neither the Fund, the Index Provider, nor the Adviser can offer assurances that the Index’s calculation methodology or sources of information will provide an accurate assessment of included issuers or correct valuation of securities, nor can they guarantee the availability or timeliness of the production of the Index.
Tracking Error Risk — The Fund may be subject to tracking error, which is the divergence of the Fund’s performance from its index. Tracking error may occur because of, among other reasons, differences between the securities and other instruments held in the Fund’s portfolio and those included in the Index. This risk may be heightened during times of increased market volatility or other unusual market conditions. Tracking error also may result because the Fund incurs fees and expenses, while the Index does not. The Fund’s use of representative sampling may cause the tracking error to be higher than would be the case if the Fund purchased all of the securities in the Index.
Rebalancing Risk — In purchasing and selling securities to rebalance its portfolio, the Fund will pay more in brokerage commissions than it would without a rebalancing policy. As a result of the need to rebalance, the Fund also has less flexibility in the timing of purchases and sales of securities than it would otherwise, and the rebalancing may result in high portfolio turnover. While we will attempt to minimize any adverse impact to the Fund or its shareholders, the Fund may have a higher proportion of capital gains and a lower return than a fund that does not have a rebalancing policy. Errors in index data, index computations or the construction of the index in accordance with its methodology may occur from time to time and may not be identified and corrected by the Index Provider for a period of time or at all, which may have an adverse impact on the Fund and its shareholders.
Sampling Risk — The Fund’s use of a representative sampling approach, if used, could result in it holding a smaller number of securities than are in the Index. As a result, an adverse development with an issuer or a small number of issuers of securities held by the Fund could result in a greater decline in NAV than would be the case if the Fund held all of the securities in the Index. To the extent the assets in the Fund are smaller, these risks will be greater.
15

VictoryShares International Volatility Wtd ETF Summary
Exchange-Traded Fund (“ETF”) Structure Risk — The Fund is structured as an ETF and, as a result, is subject to special risks, including:
Not Individually Redeemable — The Fund’s shares are not individually redeemable and may be redeemed by the Fund at its net asset value per share (“NAV”) only in large blocks known as Creation Units. The Fund may incur brokerage costs purchasing enough shares to constitute a Creation Unit. Alternatively, the Fund may redeem your shares by selling them on the secondary market at prevailing market prices.
Trading Issues — Trading in shares on the exchange operated by Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (the “Exchange”) may be halted due to market conditions or for reasons that, in the view of the Exchange, make trading in shares inadvisable, such as extraordinary market volatility. There can be no assurance that shares will continue to meet the listing requirements of the Exchange. There is no guarantee that an active secondary market will develop for the shares. In stressed market conditions, authorized participants may be unwilling to participate in the creation/redemption process, particularly if the market for shares becomes less liquid in response to deteriorating liquidity in the markets for the Fund’s underlying portfolio holdings, which may lead to widening of bid-ask spreads and differences between the market price of the shares and the underlying value of those shares.
Market Price Variance Risk — The market prices of shares will fluctuate in response to changes in NAV and supply and demand for shares and will include a bid-ask spread charged by the exchange specialists, market makers, or other participants that trade the particular security. There may be times when the market price and the NAV vary significantly, particularly in times of market stress. This means that shares may trade at a premium or discount to NAV and bid-ask spreads may widen.
International Closed Market Trading Risk — Many of the Fund’s underlying securities trade on foreign exchanges that are closed when the Exchange is open; consequently, events may transpire while such foreign exchanges are closed but the Exchange is open that may change the value of such underlying securities relative to their last quoted prices on such foreign exchanges.
Authorized Participants Concentration Risk — A limited number of financial institutions may be responsible for all or a significant portion of the creation and redemption activity for the Fund. If these firms exit the business or are unable or unwilling to process creation and/or redemption orders, shares may trade at a premium or discount to NAV and bid-ask spreads may widen.
Intraday Indicative Value (“IIV”) Risk — The Exchange intends to disseminate the approximate per share value of the Fund’s published basket of securities (“Deposit Securities”) every 15 seconds (the “intraday indicative value” or “IIV”). The IIV is not a real-time update of the NAV per share of the Fund because the IIV may not be calculated in the same manner as the NAV. For example, the calculation of the NAV may be subject to fair valuation at different prices than those used in the calculations of the IIV and, unlike the calculation of NAV, the IIV does not take into account Fund expenses. The IIV calculations are based on local market prices and may not reflect events that occur subsequent to the local market’s close which could affect premiums and discounts between the IIV and the market price of the shares. In addition, the IIV is based on the published Deposit Securities and not on the Fund’s actual holdings.
Tax-Efficiency Risk — Redemptions of shares may be effected for cash, rather than in kind, which means that the Fund may need to sell portfolio securities in order to complete an in-cash redemption, and may recognize net gains on these sales. As a result, investments in the shares may be less tax-efficient than investments in ETFs that redeem solely or principally in kind, and the Fund may pay out higher annual capital gain distributions than if the in-kind redemption process was used.
16

VictoryShares International Volatility Wtd ETF Summary
Valuation Risk — The sale price the Fund could receive for a security may differ from the Fund’s valuation of the security and may differ from the value used by the Index, particularly for securities that trade in low volume or volatile markets or that are valued using a fair value methodology. The Fund relies on various sources to calculate its NAV. The information may be provided by third parties that are believed to be reliable, but the information may not be accurate due to errors by such pricing sources, technological issues, or otherwise.
Large Shareholder Risk — Certain large shareholders, including other funds advised by the Adviser, may from time to time own a substantial amount of the Fund’s shares. The actions by one shareholder or multiple shareholders may have an impact on the Fund and, therefore, indirectly on other shareholders. Shareholder purchase and redemption activity may affect the per share amount of the Fund’s distributions of its net investment income and net realized capital gains, if any, thereby affecting the tax burden on the Fund’s shareholders subject to federal income tax. To the extent a larger shareholder (including, for example, an affiliated fund that operates as a fund-of-funds or 529 college savings plan) is permitted to invest in the Fund, the Fund may experience large inflows or outflows of cash from time to time. This activity could magnify these adverse effects on the Fund.
You may lose money by investing in the Fund. There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its objective. An investment in the Fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency.
By itself, the Fund does not constitute a complete investment plan and should be considered a long-term investment for investors who can afford to weather changes in the value of their investment.

A higher portfolio turnover will generally indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual Fund operating expenses or in the example, affect the Fund’s performance. For the most recent fiscal year, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate was 47% of the average value of its portfolio.

VictoryShares US Large Cap High Div Volatility Wtd ETF Summary
Principal Investment Strategy
The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing, under normal market conditions, at least 80% of its assets directly or indirectly in the securities included in the Nasdaq Victory US Large Cap High Dividend 100 Volatility Weighted Index (the “Index”), an unmanaged, volatility weighted index maintained exclusively by Nasdaq, Inc. (the “Index Provider”). The Index Provider is not affiliated with the Fund or the Adviser.
The Index combines fundamental criteria with individual security risk control achieved through volatility weighting of individual securities. The Index follows a rules-based methodology to construct its constituent securities:
The Index universe begins with the stocks included in the Nasdaq Victory US Large Cap 500 Volatility Weighted Index, a volatility weighted index comprised of the 500 largest U.S. companies by market capitalization with positive earnings over the last twelve months.
The Index identifies the 100 highest dividend yielding stocks in the Nasdaq Victory US Large Cap 500 Volatility Weighted Index.
The 100 stocks are weighted based on their daily standard deviation (volatility) of daily price changes over the last 180 trading days. Stocks with lower volatility receive a higher weighting and stocks with higher volatility receive a lower weighting.
The Index is reconstituted every March and September (based on information as of the prior month-end) and is adjusted to limit exposure to any particular sector to 25%. The Index may include more than or fewer than 100 stocks depending on the number of companies meeting the Index’s criteria. As of September 30, 2023, the Index had a market capitalization range from $0.5 billion to $470.7 billion.
The Fund generally seeks to track the returns of the Index before fees and expenses by employing a replication strategy that seeks to hold all the stocks in the Index.
Principal Risks of Investing in the Fund
The Fund’s investments are subject to the following principal risks:
Equity Securities Risk — The value of the equity securities in which the Fund invests may decline in response to developments affecting individual companies and/or general economic conditions in the United States or abroad. A company’s earnings or dividends may not increase as expected (or may decline) because of poor management, competitive pressures, reliance on particular suppliers or geographical regions, labor problems or shortages, corporate restructurings, fraudulent disclosures, man-made or natural disasters, military confrontations or wars, terrorism, public health crises, or other events, conditions, and factors. Price changes may be temporary or last for extended periods.
Market Risk — Overall market risks may affect the value of the Fund. Domestic and international factors such as political events, war, terrorism, trade disputes, inflation rates, interest rate levels, and other fiscal and monetary policy changes; cybersecurity incidents, pandemics, and other public health crises; sanctions against a particular foreign country, its nationals, businesses, or industries; and related geopolitical events, as well as environmental disasters such as earthquakes, fires, and floods, or other catastrophes, may add to instability in global economies and markets generally, and may lead to increased market volatility. Global economies and financial markets are highly interconnected, which increases the possibility that conditions in one country or region might adversely affect issuers in another country or region. The impact of these and other factors may be short-term or may last for extended periods.
Large-Capitalization Stock Risk — The securities of large-sized companies may underperform the securities of smaller-sized companies or the market as a whole. The growth rate of larger, more established companies may lag those of smaller companies, especially during periods of economic expansion.
21

VictoryShares US Large Cap High Div Volatility Wtd ETF Summary
Investment Strategy Risk — The Fund’s dividend strategy may not be successful. Dividend paying stocks may fall out of favor relative to the overall market. In addition, the Index may not successfully identify companies that meet its objectives.
Index Risk — The Fund attempts to track the performance of the Index. The Fund’s performance will be negatively affected by general declines in the securities and asset classes represented in the Index. In addition, because the Fund is not actively managed, unless a specific security is removed from the Index, the Fund generally will not sell a security because the security’s issuer was in financial trouble. The Fund also does not attempt to take defensive positions under any market conditions, including declining markets. Therefore, the Fund’s performance could be lower than funds that may actively shift their portfolio assets to take advantage of market opportunities or to lessen the impact of a market decline or a decline in the value of one or more issuers.
Passive Investment Risk — The Fund is not actively managed, and the Adviser does not take defensive positions under any market conditions, including declining markets.
Calculation Methodology Risk — The Index relies on various sources of information to assess the criteria of issuers included in the Index, including information that may be based on assumptions and estimates. Neither the Fund, the Index Provider, nor the Adviser can offer assurances that the Index’s calculation methodology or sources of information will provide an accurate assessment of included issuers or correct valuation of securities, nor can they guarantee the availability or timeliness of the production of the Index.
Tracking Error Risk — The Fund may be subject to tracking error, which is the divergence of the Fund’s performance from its index. Tracking error may occur because of, among other reasons, differences between the securities and other instruments held in the Fund’s portfolio and those included in the Index. This risk may be heightened during times of increased market volatility or other unusual market conditions. Tracking error also may result because the Fund incurs fees and expenses, while the Index does not.
Rebalancing Risk — In purchasing and selling securities to rebalance its portfolio, the Fund will pay more in brokerage commissions than it would without a rebalancing policy. As a result of the need to rebalance, the Fund also has less flexibility in the timing of purchases and sales of securities than it would otherwise, and the rebalancing may result in high portfolio turnover. While we will attempt to minimize any adverse impact to the Fund or its shareholders, the Fund may have a higher proportion of capital gains and a lower return than a fund that does not have a rebalancing policy. Errors in index data, index computations or the construction of the index in accordance with its methodology may occur from time to time and may not be identified and corrected by the Index Provider for a period of time or at all, which may have an adverse impact on the Fund and its shareholders.
Exchange-Traded Fund (“ETF”) Structure Risk — The Fund is structured as an ETF and, as a result, is subject to special risks, including:
Not Individually Redeemable — The Fund’s shares are not individually redeemable and may be redeemed by the Fund at its net asset value per share (“NAV”) only in large blocks known as Creation Units. The Fund may incur brokerage costs purchasing enough shares to constitute a Creation Unit. Alternatively, the Fund may redeem your shares by selling them on the secondary market at prevailing market prices.
Trading Issues — Trading in shares on the exchange operated by Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (the “Exchange”) may be halted due to market conditions or for reasons that, in the view of the Exchange, make trading in shares inadvisable, such as extraordinary market volatility. There can be no assurance that shares will continue to meet the listing requirements of the Exchange. There is no guarantee that an active secondary market will develop for the shares. In stressed market conditions, authorized participants may be unwilling to participate in the creation/redemption process, particularly if the market for shares becomes less liquid in
22

VictoryShares US Large Cap High Div Volatility Wtd ETF Summary
response to deteriorating liquidity in the markets for the Fund’s underlying portfolio holdings, which may lead to widening of bid-ask spreads and differences between the market price of the shares and the underlying value of those shares.
Market Price Variance Risk — The market prices of shares will fluctuate in response to changes in NAV and supply and demand for shares and will include a bid-ask spread charged by the exchange specialists, market makers, or other participants that trade the particular security. There may be times when the market price and the NAV vary significantly, particularly in times of market stress. This means that shares may trade at a premium or discount to NAV and bid-ask spreads may widen.
Authorized Participants Concentration Risk — A limited number of financial institutions may be responsible for all or a significant portion of the creation and redemption activity for the Fund. If these firms exit the business or are unable or unwilling to process creation and/or redemption orders, shares may trade at a premium or discount to NAV and bid-ask spreads may widen.
Intraday Indicative Value (“IIV”) Risk — The Exchange intends to disseminate the approximate per share value of the Fund’s published basket of securities (“Deposit Securities”) every 15 seconds (the “intraday indicative value” or “IIV”). The IIV is not a real-time update of the NAV per share of the Fund because the IIV may not be calculated in the same manner as the NAV. For example, the calculation of the NAV may be subject to fair valuation at different prices than those used in the calculations of the IIV and, unlike the calculation of NAV, the IIV does not take into account Fund expenses. The IIV calculations are based on local market prices and may not reflect events that occur subsequent to the local market’s close which could affect premiums and discounts between the IIV and the market price of the shares. In addition, the IIV is based on the published Deposit Securities and not on the Fund’s actual holdings.
Tax-Efficiency Risk — Redemptions of shares may be effected for cash, rather than in kind, which means that the Fund may need to sell portfolio securities in order to complete an in-cash redemption, and may recognize net gains on these sales. As a result, investments in the shares may be less tax-efficient than investments in ETFs that redeem solely or principally in kind, and the Fund may pay out higher annual capital gain distributions than if the in-kind redemption process was used.
Valuation Risk — The sale price the Fund could receive for a security may differ from the Fund’s valuation of the security and may differ from the value used by the Index, particularly for securities that trade in low volume or volatile markets or that are valued using a fair value methodology. The Fund relies on various sources to calculate its NAV. The information may be provided by third parties that are believed to be reliable, but the information may not be accurate due to errors by such pricing sources, technological issues, or otherwise.
You may lose money by investing in the Fund. There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its objective. An investment in the Fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency.
By itself, the Fund does not constitute a complete investment plan and should be considered a long-term investment for investors who can afford to weather changes in the value of their investment.
Investment Performance

After-tax returns use the historical highest individual federal marginal income tax rates and do not reflect the effect of state and local taxes. In certain situations, the return after taxes on distributions and sale of fund shares may be higher than the other return amounts. A higher after-tax return may result when a capital loss occurs upon redemption and translates into an assumed tax deduction that benefits the shareholder. Actual after-tax returns depend on your tax situation and may differ from those shown. After-tax returns shown are not relevant if you own your Fund shares through tax-deferred arrangements, such as 401(k) plans or individual retirement accounts.

Investment Adviser
Victory Capital Management Inc. (the “Adviser”) serves as the Fund’s investment adviser. The portfolio manager primarily responsible for day-to-day management of the Fund is a member of the Adviser's Victory Solutions platform, which oversees the Adviser's rules-basedinvestment strategies.

Purchase and Sale of Fund Shares
The Fund will issue and redeem shares at NAV only in large blocks of 50,000 shares (each block of shares is called a “Creation Unit”). Creation Units are issued and redeemed for cash and/or in-kind for securities by Authorized Participants (“APs”) that have entered into agreements with the Fund’s distributor. Except when aggregated in Creation Units, shares are not redeemable securities of the Fund.
Shares of the Fund are listed for trading on the Exchange. Individual shares may only be purchased and sold in the secondary market through a broker or dealer at a market price. Because shares of the Fund trade at market prices rather than NAV, shares may trade at a price that is greater than (a premium), at, or less than (a discount) NAV. An investor may incur costs attributable to the difference between the highest price a buyer is willing to pay to purchase shares (bid) and the lowest price a seller is willing to accept for shares (ask) when buying or selling shares in the secondary market (the “bid-ask spread”).
For recent information about the Fund, including the Fund’s NAV, market price, premiums and discounts, and bid-ask spreads, visit vcm.com.
Tax Information
The Fund’s distributions generally are taxable as ordinary income, qualified dividend income, or capital gains. A sale of shares may result in a capital gain or loss.
Payments to Broker-Dealers and Other Financial Intermediaries
If you purchase shares through a broker-dealer or other financial intermediary (such as a bank), the Fund and its related companies may pay the intermediary for the sale of shares and related services. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing the broker-dealer or other intermediary and your salesperson to recommend the Fund over another investment. Ask your salesperson or visit your financial intermediary’s website for more information.

Victory Capital Management Inc. (the “Adviser”) has contractually agreed to waive its management fee and/or reimburse expenses so that the total annual fund operating expenses (excluding certain items such as interest, taxes, and brokerage commissions) do not exceed 0.35% through at least October 31, 2024. The Adviser is permitted to recoup advisory fees waived and expenses reimbursed for up to three years after the date of the waiver or reimbursement, subject to the lesser of any operating expense limits in effect at the time of (a) the original waiver or expense reimbursement; or (b) the recoupment, after giving effect to the recoupment amount. This agreement may only be terminated by the Fund’s Board of Trustees.
Example:
This Example is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund with the cost of investing in other funds. The example assumes that (1) you invest $10,000 in the Fund for the time periods indicated and then sell or continue to hold all of your shares at the end of the period, (2) your investment has a 5% return each year, and (3) the Fund’s operating expenses remain the same. The amounts shown reflect any fee waiver/expense reimbursement in place through its expiration date. Although your actual costs may be higher or lower, based upon these assumptions your costs would be:

Portfolio Turnover:
The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or “turns over” its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover will generally indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual Fund operating expenses or in the example, affect the Fund’s performance. For the most recent fiscal year, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate was 82% of the average value of its portfolio.

VictoryShares US Small Cap High Div Volatility Wtd ETF Summary
Principal Investment Strategy
The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing, under normal market conditions, at least 80% of its assets directly or indirectly in the securities included in the Nasdaq Victory US Small Cap High Dividend 100 Volatility Weighted Index (the “Index”), an unmanaged, volatility weighted index maintained exclusively by Nasdaq, Inc. (the “Index Provider”). The Index Provider is not affiliated with the Fund or the Adviser.
The Index combines fundamental criteria with individual security risk control achieved through volatility weighting of individual securities. The Index follows a rules-based methodology to construct its constituent securities:
The Index universe begins with the stocks included in the Nasdaq Victory US Small Cap 500 Volatility Weighted Index.
The Index identifies the 100 highest dividend yielding stocks in the Nasdaq Victory US Small Cap 500 Volatility Weighted Index.
The 100 stocks are weighted based on their daily standard deviation (volatility) of daily price changes over the last 180 trading days. Stocks with lower volatility receive a higher weighting and stocks with higher volatility receive a lower weighting.
The Index is reconstituted every March and September (based on information as of the prior month-end) and is adjusted to limit exposure to any particular sector to 25%. The Index may include more than or fewer than 100 stocks depending on the number of companies meeting the Index’s criteria. As of September 30, 2023, the Index had a market capitalization range from $0.5 billion to $4.7 billion.
The Fund generally seeks to track the returns of the Index before fees and expenses by employing a replication strategy that seeks to hold all the stocks in the Index.
Principal Risks of Investing in the Fund
The Fund’s investments are subject to the following principal risks:
Equity Securities Risk — The value of the equity securities in which the Fund invests may decline in response to developments affecting individual companies and/or general economic conditions in the United States or abroad. A company’s earnings or dividends may not increase as expected (or may decline) because of poor management, competitive pressures, reliance on particular suppliers or geographical regions, labor problems or shortages, corporate restructurings, fraudulent disclosures, man-made or natural disasters, military confrontations or wars, terrorism, public health crises, or other events, conditions, and factors. Price changes may be temporary or last for extended periods.
Market Risk — Overall market risks may affect the value of the Fund. Domestic and international factors such as political events, war, terrorism, trade disputes, inflation rates, interest rate levels, and other fiscal and monetary policy changes; cybersecurity incidents, pandemics, and other public health crises; sanctions against a particular foreign country, its nationals, businesses, or industries; and related geopolitical events, as well as environmental disasters such as earthquakes, fires, and floods, or other catastrophes, may add to instability in global economies and markets generally, and may lead to increased market volatility. Global economies and financial markets are highly interconnected, which increases the possibility that conditions in one country or region might adversely affect issuers in another country or region. The impact of these and other factors may be short-term or may last for extended periods.
Small-Capitalization Stock Risk — Investments in small-capitalization companies involve greater risks than those associated with larger, more established companies. These securities may be subject to more abrupt or erratic price movements and may lack sufficient market liquidity, making it difficult for a Fund to buy and sell them at the time and price desired, and these issuers often face greater business risks. Small-capitalization companies typically are less financially stable than larger, more
27

VictoryShares US Small Cap High Div Volatility Wtd ETF Summary
established companies, and may depend on a small number of key personnel, making them vulnerable to loss of personnel. These companies also generally have less diverse product lines than larger capitalization companies and are more susceptible to adverse developments related to their products.
Investment Strategy Risk — The Fund’s dividend strategy may not be successful. Dividend paying stocks may fall out of favor relative to the overall market. In addition, the Index may not successfully identify companies that meet its objectives.
Liquidity Risk — In certain circumstances, such as the disruption of the orderly markets for the investments in which the Fund invests, the Fund might not be able to dispose of certain holdings quickly or at prices that represent true market value in the judgment of the Adviser. Markets for the investments in which the Fund invests may be disrupted by a number of events, including but not limited to economic crises, natural disasters, new legislation, or regulatory changes, and may prevent the Fund from limiting losses, realizing gains or achieving a high correlation with the Index.
Index Risk — The Fund attempts to track the performance of the Index. The Fund’s performance will be negatively affected by general declines in the securities and asset classes represented in the Index. In addition, because the Fund is not actively managed, unless a specific security is removed from the Index, the Fund generally will not sell a security because the security’s issuer was in financial trouble. The Fund also does not attempt to take defensive positions under any market conditions, including declining markets. Therefore, the Fund’s performance could be lower than funds that may actively shift their portfolio assets to take advantage of market opportunities or to lessen the impact of a market decline or a decline in the value of one or more issuers.
Passive Investment Risk — The Fund is not actively managed, and the Adviser does not take defensive positions under any market conditions, including declining markets.
Calculation Methodology Risk — The Index relies on various sources of information to assess the criteria of issuers included in the Index, including information that may be based on assumptions and estimates. Neither the Fund, the Index Provider, nor the Adviser can offer assurances that the Index’s calculation methodology or sources of information will provide an accurate assessment of included issuers or correct valuation of securities, nor can they guarantee the availability or timeliness of the production of the Index.
Tracking Error Risk — The Fund may be subject to tracking error, which is the divergence of the Fund’s performance from its index. Tracking error may occur because of, among other reasons, differences between the securities and other instruments held in the Fund’s portfolio and those included in the Index. This risk may be heightened during times of increased market volatility or other unusual market conditions. Tracking error also may result because the Fund incurs fees and expenses, while the Index does not.
Rebalancing Risk — In purchasing and selling securities to rebalance its portfolio, the Fund will pay more in brokerage commissions than it would without a rebalancing policy. As a result of the need to rebalance, the Fund also has less flexibility in the timing of purchases and sales of securities than it would otherwise, and the rebalancing may result in high portfolio turnover. While we will attempt to minimize any adverse impact to the Fund or its shareholders, the Fund may have a higher proportion of capital gains and a lower return than a fund that does not have a rebalancing policy. Errors in index data, index computations or the construction of the index in accordance with its methodology may occur from time to time and may not be identified and corrected by the Index Provider for a period of time or at all, which may have an adverse impact on the Fund and its shareholders.
Exchange-Traded Fund (“ETF”) Structure Risk — The Fund is structured as an ETF and, as a result, is subject to special risks, including:
28

VictoryShares US Small Cap High Div Volatility Wtd ETF Summary
Not Individually Redeemable — The Fund’s shares are not individually redeemable and may be redeemed by the Fund at its net asset value per share (“NAV”) only in large blocks known as Creation Units. The Fund may incur brokerage costs purchasing enough shares to constitute a Creation Unit. Alternatively, the Fund may redeem your shares by selling them on the secondary market at prevailing market prices.
Trading Issues — Trading in shares on the exchange operated by Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (the “Exchange”) may be halted due to market conditions or for reasons that, in the view of the Exchange, make trading in shares inadvisable, such as extraordinary market volatility. There can be no assurance that shares will continue to meet the listing requirements of the Exchange. There is no guarantee that an active secondary market will develop for the shares. In stressed market conditions, authorized participants may be unwilling to participate in the creation/redemption process, particularly if the market for shares becomes less liquid in response to deteriorating liquidity in the markets for the Fund’s underlying portfolio holdings, which may lead to widening of bid-ask spreads and differences between the market price of the shares and the underlying value of those shares.
Market Price Variance Risk — The market prices of shares will fluctuate in response to changes in NAV and supply and demand for shares and will include a bid-ask spread charged by the exchange specialists, market makers, or other participants that trade the particular security. There may be times when the market price and the NAV vary significantly, particularly in times of market stress. This means that shares may trade at a premium or discount to NAV and bid-ask spreads may widen.
Authorized Participants Concentration Risk — A limited number of financial institutions may be responsible for all or a significant portion of the creation and redemption activity for the Fund. If these firms exit the business or are unable or unwilling to process creation and/or redemption orders, shares may trade at a premium or discount to NAV and bid-ask spreads may widen.
Intraday Indicative Value (“IIV”) Risk — The Exchange intends to disseminate the approximate per share value of the Fund’s published basket of securities (“Deposit Securities”) every 15 seconds (the “intraday indicative value” or “IIV”). The IIV is not a real-time update of the NAV per share of the Fund because the IIV may not be calculated in the same manner as the NAV. For example, the calculation of the NAV may be subject to fair valuation at different prices than those used in the calculations of the IIV and, unlike the calculation of NAV, the IIV does not take into account Fund expenses. The IIV calculations are based on local market prices and may not reflect events that occur subsequent to the local market’s close which could affect premiums and discounts between the IIV and the market price of the shares. In addition, the IIV is based on the published Deposit Securities and not on the Fund’s actual holdings.
Tax-Efficiency Risk — Redemptions of shares may be effected for cash, rather than in kind, which means that the Fund may need to sell portfolio securities in order to complete an in-cash redemption, and may recognize net gains on these sales. As a result, investments in the shares may be less tax-efficient than investments in ETFs that redeem solely or principally in kind, and the Fund may pay out higher annual capital gain distributions than if the in-kind redemption process was used.
Valuation Risk — The sale price the Fund could receive for a security may differ from the Fund’s valuation of the security and may differ from the value used by the Index, particularly for securities that trade in low volume or volatile markets or that are valued using a fair value methodology. The Fund relies on various sources to calculate its NAV. The information may be provided by third parties that are believed to be reliable, but the information may not be accurate due to errors by such pricing sources, technological issues, or otherwise.

VictoryShares International High Div Volatility Wtd ETF Summary
Principal Investment Strategy
The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing, under normal market conditions, at least 80% of its assets directly or indirectly in the securities included in the Nasdaq Victory International High Dividend 100 Volatility Weighted Index (the “Index”), an unmanaged, volatility weighted index maintained exclusively by Nasdaq, Inc. (the “Index Provider”). The Index Provider is not affiliated with the Fund or the Adviser.
The Index combines fundamental criteria with individual security risk control achieved through volatility weighting of individual securities. The Index follows a rules-based methodology to construct its constituent securities:
The Index universe begins with the stocks included in the Nasdaq Victory International 500 Volatility Weighted Index, a volatility weighted index comprised of the 500 largest foreign companies by market capitalization with positive earnings over the last 12 months.
The Index identifies the 100 highest dividend yielding stocks in the Nasdaq Victory International 500 Volatility Weighted Index.
The 100 stocks are weighted based on their daily standard deviation (volatility) of daily price changes over the last 180 trading days. Stocks with lower volatility receive a higher weighting and stocks with higher volatility receive a lower weighting.
The Index considers foreign companies to be those that are organized or domiciled in a developed country (excluding the U.S. and emerging markets) and whose stock principally trades on a foreign exchange. Representative developed markets include Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Hong Kong, and Australia.
The Index is reconstituted every March and September (based on information as of the prior month-end) and is adjusted to limit exposure to any particular country to 20% and any particular sector to 25%. The Index may include more than or fewer than 100 stocks depending on the number of companies meeting the Index’s criteria.
The Fund seeks to track the returns of the Index before fees and expenses by employing, under normal circumstances, a “sampling” process to invest in a representative sample of stocks included in the Index. The Fund’s portfolio managers select these stocks using a statistical optimization process designed to produce investment characteristics that closely approximate those of the Index.
Principal Risks of Investing in the Fund
The Fund’s investments are subject to the following principal risks:
Equity Securities Risk — The value of the equity securities in which the Fund invests may decline in response to developments affecting individual companies and/or general economic conditions in the United States or abroad. A company’s earnings or dividends may not increase as expected (or may decline) because of poor management, competitive pressures, reliance on particular suppliers or geographical regions, labor problems or shortages, corporate restructurings, fraudulent disclosures, man-made or natural disasters, military confrontations or wars, terrorism, public health crises, or other events, conditions, and factors. Price changes may be temporary or last for extended periods.
Market Risk — Overall market risks may affect the value of the Fund. Domestic and international factors such as political events, war, terrorism, trade disputes, inflation rates, interest rate levels, and other fiscal and monetary policy changes; cybersecurity incidents, pandemics, and other public health crises; sanctions against a particular foreign country, its nationals, businesses, or industries; and related geopolitical events, as well as environmental disasters such as earthquakes, fires, and floods, or other catastrophes, may add to instability in global economies and markets generally, and may lead to increased market volatility. Global economies and financial markets are highly interconnected,
33

VictoryShares International High Div Volatility Wtd ETF Summary
which increases the possibility that conditions in one country or region might adversely affect issuers in another country or region. The impact of these and other factors may be short-term or may last for extended periods.
Foreign Securities Risk — Foreign securities (including depositary receipts) are subject to political, regulatory, and economic risks not present in domestic investments. Foreign securities could be affected by factors not present in the United States, including expropriation, confiscation of property, and difficulties in enforcing contracts. Compared to U.S. companies, there generally is less publicly available information about foreign companies and there may be less governmental regulation and supervision of foreign companies. Foreign securities generally experience more volatility than their domestic counterparts. Depositary receipts may have additional risks, including creditworthiness of the depositary bank and the risk of an illiquid market. In addition, to the extent investments are made in a limited number of countries, events in those countries will have a more significant impact on the Fund. Fluctuations in the exchange rates between the U.S. dollar and foreign currencies, currency exchange control regulations, and restrictions or prohibitions on the repatriation of foreign currencies may negatively affect an investment.
Investment Strategy Risk — The Fund’s dividend strategy may not be successful. Dividend paying stocks may fall out of favor relative to the overall market. In addition, the Index may not successfully identify companies that meet its objectives.
Index Risk — The Fund attempts to track the performance of the Index. The Fund’s performance will be negatively affected by general declines in the securities and asset classes represented in the Index. In addition, because the Fund is not actively managed, unless a specific security is removed from the Index, the Fund generally will not sell a security because the security’s issuer was in financial trouble. The Fund also does not attempt to take defensive positions under any market conditions, including declining markets. Therefore, the Fund’s performance could be lower than funds that may actively shift their portfolio assets to take advantage of market opportunities or to lessen the impact of a market decline or a decline in the value of one or more issuers.
Passive Investment Risk — The Fund is not actively managed, and the Adviser does not take defensive positions under any market conditions, including declining markets.
Calculation Methodology Risk — The Index relies on various sources of information to assess the criteria of issuers included in the Index, including information that may be based on assumptions and estimates. Neither the Fund, the Index Provider, nor the Adviser can offer assurances that the Index’s calculation methodology or sources of information will provide an accurate assessment of included issuers or correct valuation of securities, nor can they guarantee the availability or timeliness of the production of the Index.
Sampling Risk — The Fund’s use of a representative sampling approach, if used, could result in it holding a smaller number of securities than are in the Index. As a result, an adverse development with an issuer or a small number of issuers of securities held by the Fund could result in a greater decline in NAV than would be the case if the Fund held all of the securities in the Index. To the extent the assets in the Fund are smaller, these risks will be greater.
Tracking Error Risk — The Fund may be subject to tracking error, which is the divergence of the Fund’s performance from its index. Tracking error may occur because of, among other reasons, differences between the securities and other instruments held in the Fund’s portfolio and those included in the Index. This risk may be heightened during times of increased market volatility or other unusual market conditions. Tracking error also may result because the Fund incurs fees and expenses, while the Index does not. The Fund’s use of representative sampling may cause the tracking error to be higher than would be the case if the Fund purchased all of the securities in the Index.

VictoryShares International High Div Volatility Wtd ETF Summary
Rebalancing Risk — In purchasing and selling securities to rebalance its portfolio, the Fund will pay more in brokerage commissions than it would without a rebalancing policy. As a result of the need to rebalance, the Fund also has less flexibility in the timing of purchases and sales of securities than it would otherwise, and the rebalancing may result in high portfolio turnover. While we will attempt to minimize any adverse impact to the Fund or its shareholders, the Fund may have a higher proportion of capital gains and a lower return than a fund that does not have a rebalancing policy. Errors in index data, index computations or the construction of the index in accordance with its methodology may occur from time to time and may not be identified and corrected by the Index Provider for a period of time or at all, which may have an adverse impact on the Fund and its shareholders.
Exchange-Traded Fund (“ETF”) Structure Risk — The Fund is structured as an ETF and, as a result, is subject to special risks, including:
Not Individually Redeemable — The Fund’s shares are not individually redeemable and may be redeemed by the Fund at its net asset value per share (“NAV”) only in large blocks known as Creation Units. The Fund may incur brokerage costs purchasing enough shares to constitute a Creation Unit. Alternatively, the Fund may redeem your shares by selling them on the secondary market at prevailing market prices.
Trading Issues — Trading in shares on the exchange operated by Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (the “Exchange”) may be halted due to market conditions or for reasons that, in the view of the Exchange, make trading in shares inadvisable, such as extraordinary market volatility. There can be no assurance that shares will continue to meet the listing requirements of the Exchange. There is no guarantee that an active secondary market will develop for the shares. In stressed market conditions, authorized participants may be unwilling to participate in the creation/redemption process, particularly if the market for shares becomes less liquid in response to deteriorating liquidity in the markets for the Fund’s underlying portfolio holdings, which may lead to widening of bid-ask spreads and differences between the market price of the shares and the underlying value of those shares.
Market Price Variance Risk — The market prices of shares will fluctuate in response to changes in NAV and supply and demand for shares and will include a bid-ask spread charged by the exchange specialists, market makers, or other participants that trade the particular security. There may be times when the market price and the NAV vary significantly, particularly in times of market stress. This means that shares may trade at a premium or discount to NAV and bid-ask spreads may widen.
International Closed Market Trading Risk — Many of the Fund’s underlying securities trade on foreign exchanges that are closed when the Exchange is open; consequently, events may transpire while such foreign exchanges are closed but the Exchange is open that may change the value of such underlying securities relative to their last quoted prices on such foreign exchanges. Because the Fund generally relies on the last quoted prices for such securities when calculating its NAV, such events may cause shares to trade at a premium or discount to NAV.
Authorized Participants Concentration Risk — A limited number of financial institutions may be responsible for all or a significant portion of the creation and redemption activity for the Fund. If these firms exit the business or are unable or unwilling to process creation and/or redemption orders, shares may trade at a premium or discount to NAV and bid-ask spreads may widen.
Intraday Indicative Value (“IIV”) Risk — The Exchange intends to disseminate the approximate per share value of the Fund’s published basket of securities (“Deposit Securities”) every 15 seconds (the “intraday indicative value” or “IIV”). The IIV is not a real-time update of the NAV per share of the Fund because the IIV may not be calculated in the same manner as the NAV. For example, the calculation of the NAV may be subject to fair valuation at different prices than those used in the calculations of the IIV and, unlike the calculation of NAV, the IIV
35

VictoryShares International High Div Volatility Wtd ETF Summary
does not take into account Fund expenses. The IIV calculations are based on local market prices and may not reflect events that occur subsequent to the local market’s close which could affect premiums and discounts between the IIV and the market price of the shares. In addition, the IIV is based on the published Deposit Securities and not on the Fund’s actual holdings.
Tax-Efficiency Risk — Redemptions of shares may be effected for cash, rather than in kind, which means that the Fund may need to sell portfolio securities in order to complete an in-cash redemption, and may recognize net gains on these sales. As a result, investments in the shares may be less tax-efficient than investments in ETFs that redeem solely or principally in kind, and the Fund may pay out higher annual capital gain distributions than if the in-kind redemption process was used.
Valuation Risk — The sale price the Fund could receive for a security may differ from the Fund’s valuation of the security and may differ from the value used by the Index, particularly for securities that trade in low volume or volatile markets or that are valued using a fair value methodology. The Fund relies on various sources to calculate its NAV. The information may be provided by third parties that are believed to be reliable, but the information may not be accurate due to errors by such pricing sources, technological issues, or otherwise.
You may lose money by investing in the Fund. There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its objective. An investment in the Fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency.
By itself, the Fund does not constitute a complete investment plan and should be considered a long-term investment for investors who can afford to weather changes in the value of their investment.

After-tax returns use the historical highest individual federal marginal income tax rates and do not reflect the effect of state and local taxes. In certain situations, the return after taxes on distributions and sale of fund shares may be higher than the other return amounts. A higher after-tax return may result when a capital loss occurs upon redemption and translates into an assumed tax deduction that benefits the shareholder. Actual after-tax returns depend on your tax situation and may differ from those shown. After-tax returns shown are not relevant if you own your Fund shares through tax-deferred arrangements, such as 401(k) plans or individual retirement accounts.
Management of the Fund
Investment Adviser

Purchase and Sale of Fund Shares
The Fund will issue and redeem shares at NAV only in large blocks of 50,000 shares (each block of shares is called a “Creation Unit”). Creation Units are issued and redeemed for cash and/or in-kind for securities by Authorized Participants (“APs”) that have entered into agreements with the Fund’s distributor. Except when aggregated in Creation Units, shares are not redeemable securities of the Fund.
Shares of the Fund are listed for trading on the Exchange. Individual shares may only be purchased and sold in the secondary market through a broker or dealer at a market price. Because shares of the Fund trade at market prices rather than NAV, shares may trade at a price that is greater than (a premium), at, or less than (a discount) NAV. An investor may incur costs attributable to the difference between the highest price a buyer is willing to pay to purchase shares (bid) and the lowest price a seller is willing to accept for shares (ask) when buying or selling shares in the secondary market (the “bid-ask spread”).

Tax Information
The Fund’s distributions generally are taxable as ordinary income, qualified dividend income, or capital gains. A sale of shares may result in a capital gain or loss.
Payments to Broker-Dealers and Other Financial Intermediaries
If you purchase shares through a broker-dealer or other financial intermediary (such as a bank), the Fund and its related companies may pay the intermediary for the sale of shares and related services. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing the broker-dealer or other intermediary and your salesperson to recommend the Fund over another investment. Ask your salesperson or visit your financial intermediary’s website for more information.

Investment Objective
The VictoryShares Dividend Accelerator ETF (the “Fund”) seeks to provide investment results that track the performance of the Nasdaq Victory Dividend Accelerator Index (the “Index”) before fees and expenses.

Victory Capital Management Inc. (the “Adviser”) has contractually agreed to waive its management fee and/or reimburse expenses so that the total annual fund operating expenses (excluding certain items such as interest, taxes, and brokerage commissions) do not exceed 0.35% through at least October 31, 2024. The Adviser is permitted to recoup advisory fees waived and expenses reimbursed for up to three years after the date of the waiver or reimbursement, subject to the lesser of any operating expense limits in effect at the time of (a) the original waiver or expense reimbursement; or (b) the recoupment, after giving effect to the recoupment amount. This agreement may only be terminated by the Fund’s Board of Trustees.
Example:
This Example is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund with the cost of investing in other funds. The example assumes that (1) you invest $10,000 in the Fund for the time periods indicated and then sell or continue to hold all of your shares at the end of the period, (2) your investment has a 5% return each year, and (3) the Fund’s operating expenses remain the same. The amounts shown reflect any fee waiver/expense reimbursement in place through its expiration date. Although your actual costs may be higher or lower, based upon these assumptions your costs would be:
1 Year
3 Years
5 Years
10 Years
$36
$123
$219
$500
Portfolio Turnover:
The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or “turns over” its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover will generally indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual Fund operating expenses or in the example, affect the Fund’s performance. For the most recent fiscal year, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate was 54% of the average value of its portfolio.
39

VictoryShares Dividend Accelerator ETF Summary
Principal Investment Strategy
The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing, under normal market conditions, at least 80% of its assets in securities included in the Nasdaq Victory Dividend Accelerator Index (the “Index”). The Index utilizes a rules-based approach designed to identify dividend paying stocks with a higher likelihood of future dividend growth. The Index is maintained exclusively by Nasdaq, Inc. (the “Index Provider”). The Index Provider is not affiliated with the Fund or the Adviser.
The companies eligible for inclusion in the Index are derived from its starting universe, the mid- to large-capitalization U.S. companies included in the Nasdaq US Large Mid Cap Index (“Parent Index”), an index maintained by the Index Provider. The Parent Index consists of those companies with market capitalizations representing the top 90% of the U.S. investable universe.
The Index screens companies in the Parent Index using a number of proprietary fundamental factors that have been identified by a quantitative multi-factor selection process to identify dividend paying companies with a higher probability of future dividend growth. Within this smaller set of companies, the Index weights the constituent securities using a methodology designed to maximize dividend growth, measured at a portfolio level, within established portfolio constraints (such as maximum weightings of index constituents and sectors). The Index is reconstituted every April and rebalanced quarterly (based on information as of the prior month-end).
The Fund generally seeks to track the returns of the Index before fees and expenses by employing a replication strategy that seeks to hold all the stocks in the Index in proportion to their weightings in the Index.
Principal Risks of Investing in the Fund
The Fund’s investments are subject to the following principal risks:
Equity Securities Risk — The value of the equity securities in which the Fund invests may decline in response to developments affecting individual companies and/or general economic conditions in the United States or abroad. A company’s earnings or dividends may not increase as expected (or may decline) because of poor management, competitive pressures, reliance on particular suppliers or geographical regions, labor problems or shortages, corporate restructurings, fraudulent disclosures, man-made or natural disasters, military confrontations or wars, terrorism, public health crises, or other events, conditions, and factors. Price changes may be temporary or last for extended periods.
Market Risk — Overall market risks may affect the value of the Fund. Domestic and international factors such as political events, war, terrorism, trade disputes, inflation rates, interest rate levels, and other fiscal and monetary policy changes; cybersecurity incidents, pandemics, and other public health crises; sanctions against a particular foreign country, its nationals, businesses, or industries; and related geopolitical events, as well as environmental disasters such as earthquakes, fires, and floods, or other catastrophes, may add to instability in global economies and markets generally, and may lead to increased market volatility. Global economies and financial markets are highly interconnected, which increases the possibility that conditions in one country or region might adversely affect issuers in another country or region. The impact of these and other factors may be short-term or may last for extended periods.
Investment Strategy Risk — The Fund’s dividend strategy may not be successful. Dividend paying stocks may fall out of favor relative to the overall market. In addition, the Index may not successfully identify companies that meet its objectives.
Mid-Capitalization Stock Risk — Mid-sized companies may be subject to a number of risks not associated with larger, more established companies, potentially making their stock prices more volatile and increasing the risk of loss.
40

VictoryShares Dividend Accelerator ETF Summary
Large-Capitalization Stock Risk — The securities of large-sized companies may underperform the securities of smaller-sized companies or the market as a whole. The growth rate of larger, more established companies may lag those of smaller companies, especially during periods of economic expansion.
Index Risk — The Fund attempts to track the performance of the Index. The Fund’s performance will be negatively affected by general declines in the securities and asset classes represented in the Index. In addition, because the Fund is not actively managed, unless a specific security is removed from the Index, the Fund generally will not sell a security because the security’s issuer was in financial trouble. The Fund also does not attempt to take defensive positions under any market conditions, including declining markets. Therefore, the Fund’s performance could be lower than funds that may actively shift their portfolio assets to take advantage of market opportunities or to lessen the impact of a market decline or a decline in the value of one or more issuers.
Passive Investment Risk — The Fund is not actively managed, and the Adviser does not take defensive positions under any market conditions, including declining markets.
Calculation Methodology Risk — The Index relies on various sources of information to assess the criteria of issuers included in the Index, including information that may be based on assumptions and estimates. Neither the Fund, the Index Provider, nor the Adviser can offer assurances that the Index’s calculation methodology or sources of information will provide an accurate assessment of included issuers or correct valuation of securities, nor can they guarantee the availability or timeliness of the production of the Index.
Tracking Error Risk — The Fund may be subject to tracking error, which is the divergence of the Fund’s performance from its index. Tracking error may occur because of, among other reasons, differences between the securities and other instruments held in the Fund’s portfolio and those included in the Index. This risk may be heightened during times of increased market volatility or other unusual market conditions. Tracking error also may result because the Fund incurs fees and expenses, while the Index does not.
Rebalancing Risk — In purchasing and selling securities to rebalance its portfolio, the Fund will pay more in brokerage commissions than it would without a rebalancing policy. As a result of the need to rebalance, the Fund also has less flexibility in the timing of purchases and sales of securities than it would otherwise, and the rebalancing may result in high portfolio turnover. While we will attempt to minimize any adverse impact to the Fund or its shareholders, the Fund may have a higher proportion of capital gains and a lower return than a fund that does not have a rebalancing policy. Errors in index data, index computations or the construction of the index in accordance with its methodology may occur from time to time and may not be identified and corrected by the Index Provider for a period of time or at all, which may have an adverse impact on the Fund and its shareholders.
Exchange-Traded Fund (“ETF”) Structure Risk — The Fund is structured as an ETF and, as a result, is subject to special risks, including:
Not Individually Redeemable — The Fund’s shares are not individually redeemable and may be redeemed by the Fund at its net asset value per share (“NAV”) only in large blocks known as Creation Units. The Fund may incur brokerage costs purchasing enough shares to constitute a Creation Unit. Alternatively, the Fund may redeem your shares by selling them on the secondary market at prevailing market prices.
Trading Issues — Trading in shares on the exchange operated by Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (the “Exchange”) may be halted due to market conditions or for reasons that, in the view of the Exchange, make trading in shares inadvisable, such as extraordinary market volatility. There can be no assurance that shares will continue to meet the listing requirements of the Exchange. There is no guarantee that an active secondary market will develop for the shares. In stressed market conditions, authorized participants may be unwilling to participate in the creation/redemption process, particularly if the market for shares becomes less liquid in
41

VictoryShares Dividend Accelerator ETF Summary
response to deteriorating liquidity in the markets for the Fund’s underlying portfolio holdings, which may lead to widening of bid-ask spreads and differences between the market price of the shares and the underlying value of those shares.
Market Price Variance Risk — The market prices of shares will fluctuate in response to changes in NAV and supply and demand for shares and will include a bid-ask spread charged by the exchange specialists, market makers, or other participants that trade the particular security. There may be times when the market price and the NAV vary significantly, particularly in times of market stress. This means that shares may trade at a premium or discount to NAV and bid-ask spreads may widen.
Authorized Participants Concentration Risk — A limited number of financial institutions may be responsible for all or a significant portion of the creation and redemption activity for the Fund. If these firms exit the business or are unable or unwilling to process creation and/or redemption orders, shares may trade at a premium or discount to NAV and bid-ask spreads may widen.
Intraday Indicative Value (“IIV”) Risk — The Exchange intends to disseminate the approximate per share value of the Fund’s published basket of securities (“Deposit Securities”) every 15 seconds (the “intraday indicative value” or “IIV”). The IIV is not a real-time update of the NAV per share of the Fund because the IIV may not be calculated in the same manner as the NAV. For example, the calculation of the NAV may be subject to fair valuation at different prices than those used in the calculations of the IIV and, unlike the calculation of NAV, the IIV does not take into account Fund expenses. The IIV calculations are based on local market prices and may not reflect events that occur subsequent to the local market’s close which could affect premiums and discounts between the IIV and the market price of the shares. In addition, the IIV is based on the published Deposit Securities and not on the Fund’s actual holdings.
Tax-Efficiency Risk — Redemptions of shares may be effected for cash, rather than in kind, which means that the Fund may need to sell portfolio securities in order to complete an in-cash redemption, and may recognize net gains on these sales. As a result, investments in the shares may be less tax-efficient than investments in ETFs that redeem solely or principally in kind, and the Fund may pay out higher annual capital gain distributions than if the in-kind redemption process was used.
Valuation Risk — The sale price the Fund could receive for a security may differ from the Fund’s valuation of the security and may differ from the value used by the Index, particularly for securities that trade in low volume or volatile markets or that are valued using a fair value methodology. The Fund relies on various sources to calculate its NAV. The information may be provided by third parties that are believed to be reliable, but the information may not be accurate due to errors by such pricing sources, technological issues, or otherwise.
Large Shareholder Risk — Certain large shareholders, including other funds advised by the Adviser, may from time to time own a substantial amount of the Fund’s shares. The actions by one shareholder or multiple shareholders may have an impact on the Fund and, therefore, indirectly on other shareholders. Shareholder purchase and redemption activity may affect the per share amount of the Fund’s distributions of its net investment income and net realized capital gains, if any, thereby affecting the tax burden on the Fund’s shareholders subject to federal income tax. To the extent a larger shareholder (including, for example, an affiliated fund that operates as a fund-of-funds or 529 college savings plan) is permitted to invest in the Fund, the Fund may experience large inflows or outflows of cash from time to time. This activity could magnify these adverse effects on the Fund.
You may lose money by investing in the Fund. There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its objective. An investment in the Fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency.

The amounts shown reflect any fee waiver/expense reimbursement in place through its expiration date. Although your actual costs may be higher or lower, based upon these assumptions your costs would be:
1 Year
3 Years
5 Years
10 Years
$36
$128
$228
$523
Portfolio Turnover:
The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or “turns over” its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover will generally indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual Fund operating expenses or in the example, affect the Fund’s performance. For the most recent fiscal year, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate was 73% of the average value of its portfolio.

VictoryShares US Multi-Factor Minimum Volatility ETF Summary
Principal Investment Strategy
The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing, under normal market conditions, at least 80% of its assets in securities included in the Nasdaq Victory US Multi-Factor Minimum Volatility Index (the “Index”). The Index utilizes a rules-based approach designed to generate investment returns with less volatility than the broader U.S. market. The Index is maintained exclusively by Nasdaq, Inc. (the “Index Provider”). The Index Provider is not affiliated with the Fund or the Adviser.
The companies eligible for inclusion in the Index are derived from its starting universe, the mid- and large-capitalization U.S. companies included in the Nasdaq US Large Mid Cap Index (“Parent Index”), an index maintained by the Index Provider. The Parent Index consists of those U.S. companies with market caps representing the top 90% of the U.S. investable universe.
The Index Provider considers a company to be a U.S. company if it is economically tied to the U.S. In general, a company is treated as being economically tied to the U.S. if: (1) the company is incorporated and domiciled in the U.S., (2) the company makes public filings with U.S. securities regulators, and (3) the company’s securities are listed on a U.S. exchange. In addition, the Index Provider treats companies that are incorporated in certain identified countries to benefit from tax, legal or other advantages, but which otherwise meet these requirements, as being economically tied to the U.S.
The Index is designed to construct a diversified portfolio with superior risk-adjusted returns by first ranking companies using a number of proprietary fundamental factors, such as dividend yield, sales growth and other financial metrics that have been identified by a quantitative multi-factor selection process to identify the companies that are most likely to outperform the broader U.S. market. The companies in the top 20% of the ranking are included in the Index. Within this smaller set of companies, the Index uses an optimization tool to weight the individual securities to minimize absolute volatility, measured at a portfolio level, within established portfolio constraints (such as minimum and maximum weightings of index constituents and sectors). The Index is reconstituted every April and October (based on information as of the prior month-end).
The Fund generally seeks to track the returns of the Index before fees and expenses by employing a replication strategy that seeks to hold all the stocks in the Index in proportion to their weightings in the Index.
Principal Risks of Investing in the Fund
The Fund’s investments are subject to the following principal risks:
Equity Securities Risk — The value of the equity securities in which the Fund invests may decline in response to developments affecting individual companies and/or general economic conditions in the United States or abroad. A company’s earnings or dividends may not increase as expected (or may decline) because of poor management, competitive pressures, reliance on particular suppliers or geographical regions, labor problems or shortages, corporate restructurings, fraudulent disclosures, man-made or natural disasters, military confrontations or wars, terrorism, public health crises, or other events, conditions, and factors. Price changes may be temporary or last for extended periods.
Market Risk — Overall market risks may affect the value of the Fund. Domestic and international factors such as political events, war, terrorism, trade disputes, inflation rates, interest rate levels, and other fiscal and monetary policy changes; cybersecurity incidents, pandemics, and other public health crises; sanctions against a particular foreign country, its nationals, businesses, or industries; and related geopolitical events, as well as environmental disasters such as earthquakes, fires, and floods, or other catastrophes, may add to instability in global economies and markets generally, and may lead to increased market volatility. Global economies and financial markets are highly interconnected, which increases the possibility that conditions in one country or region might adversely affect issuers in another country or region. The impact of these and other factors may be short-term or may last for extended periods.
46

VictoryShares US Multi-Factor Minimum Volatility ETF Summary
Mid-Capitalization Stock Risk — Mid-sized companies may be subject to a number of risks not associated with larger, more established companies, potentially making their stock prices more volatile and increasing the risk of loss.
Large-Capitalization Stock Risk — The securities of large-sized companies may underperform the securities of smaller-sized companies or the market as a whole. The growth rate of larger, more established companies may lag those of smaller companies, especially during periods of economic expansion.
Index Risk — The Fund attempts to track the performance of the Index. The Fund’s performance will be negatively affected by general declines in the securities and asset classes represented in the Index. In addition, because the Fund is not actively managed, unless a specific security is removed from the Index, the Fund generally will not sell a security because the security’s issuer was in financial trouble. The Fund also does not attempt to take defensive positions under any market conditions, including declining markets. Therefore, the Fund’s performance could be lower than funds that may actively shift their portfolio assets to take advantage of market opportunities or to lessen the impact of a market decline or a decline in the value of one or more issuers.
Passive Investment Risk — The Fund is not actively managed, and the Adviser does not take defensive positions under any market conditions, including declining markets.
Calculation Methodology Risk — The Index relies on various sources of information to assess the criteria of issuers included in the Index, including information that may be based on assumptions and estimates. Neither the Fund, the Index Provider, nor the Adviser can offer assurances that the Index’s calculation methodology or sources of information will provide an accurate assessment of included issuers or correct valuation of securities, nor can they guarantee the availability or timeliness of the production of the Index.
Tracking Error Risk — The Fund may be subject to tracking error, which is the divergence of the Fund’s performance from its index. Tracking error may occur because of, among other reasons, differences between the securities and other instruments held in the Fund’s portfolio and those included in the Index. This risk may be heightened during times of increased market volatility or other unusual market conditions. Tracking error also may result because the Fund incurs fees and expenses, while the Index does not.
Rebalancing Risk — In purchasing and selling securities to rebalance its portfolio, the Fund will pay more in brokerage commissions than it would without a rebalancing policy. As a result of the need to rebalance, the Fund also has less flexibility in the timing of purchases and sales of securities than it would otherwise, and the rebalancing may result in high portfolio turnover. While we will attempt to minimize any adverse impact to the Fund or its shareholders, the Fund may have a higher proportion of capital gains and a lower return than a fund that does not have a rebalancing policy. Errors in index data, index computations or the construction of the index in accordance with its methodology may occur from time to time and may not be identified and corrected by the Index Provider for a period of time or at all, which may have an adverse impact on the Fund and its shareholders.
Exchange-Traded Fund (“ETF”) Structure Risk — The Fund is structured as an ETF and, as a result, is subject to special risks, including:
Not Individually Redeemable — The Fund’s shares are not individually redeemable and may be redeemed by the Fund at its net asset value per share (“NAV”) only in large blocks known as Creation Units. The Fund may incur brokerage costs purchasing enough shares to constitute a Creation Unit. Alternatively, the Fund may redeem your shares by selling them on the secondary market at prevailing market prices.
Trading Issues — Trading in shares on the exchange operated by Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (the “Exchange”) may be halted due to market conditions or for reasons that, in the view of the Exchange, make trading in shares inadvisable, such as extraordinary market volatility. There
47

VictoryShares US Multi-Factor Minimum Volatility ETF Summary
can be no assurance that shares will continue to meet the listing requirements of the Exchange. There is no guarantee that an active secondary market will develop for the shares. In stressed market conditions, authorized participants may be unwilling to participate in the creation/redemption process, particularly if the market for shares becomes less liquid in response to deteriorating liquidity in the markets for the Fund’s underlying portfolio holdings, which may lead to widening of bid-ask spreads and differences between the market price of the shares and the underlying value of those shares.
Market Price Variance Risk — The market prices of shares will fluctuate in response to changes in NAV and supply and demand for shares and will include a bid-ask spread charged by the exchange specialists, market makers, or other participants that trade the particular security. There may be times when the market price and the NAV vary significantly, particularly in times of market stress. This means that shares may trade at a premium or discount to NAV and bid-ask spreads may widen.
Authorized Participants Concentration Risk — A limited number of financial institutions may be responsible for all or a significant portion of the creation and redemption activity for the Fund. If these firms exit the business or are unable or unwilling to process creation and/or redemption orders, shares may trade at a premium or discount to NAV and bid-ask spreads may widen.
Intraday Indicative Value (“IIV”) Risk — The Exchange intends to disseminate the approximate per share value of the Fund’s published basket of securities (“Deposit Securities”) every 15 seconds (the “intraday indicative value” or “IIV”). The IIV is not a real-time update of the NAV per share of the Fund because the IIV may not be calculated in the same manner as the NAV. For example, the calculation of the NAV may be subject to fair valuation at different prices than those used in the calculations of the IIV and, unlike the calculation of NAV, the IIV does not take into account Fund expenses. The IIV calculations are based on local market prices and may not reflect events that occur subsequent to the local market’s close which could affect premiums and discounts between the IIV and the market price of the shares. In addition, the IIV is based on the published Deposit Securities and not on the Fund’s actual holdings.
Tax-Efficiency Risk — Redemptions of shares may be effected for cash, rather than in kind, which means that the Fund may need to sell portfolio securities in order to complete an in-cash redemption, and may recognize net gains on these sales. As a result, investments in the shares may be less tax-efficient than investments in ETFs that redeem solely or principally in kind, and the Fund may pay out higher annual capital gain distributions than if the in-kind redemption process was used.
Valuation Risk — The sale price the Fund could receive for a security may differ from the Fund’s valuation of the security and may differ from the value used by the Index, particularly for securities that trade in low volume or volatile markets or that are valued using a fair value methodology. The Fund relies on various sources to calculate its NAV. The information may be provided by third parties that are believed to be reliable, but the information may not be accurate due to errors by such pricing sources, technological issues, or otherwise.
Large Shareholder Risk — Certain large shareholders, including other funds advised by the Adviser, may from time to time own a substantial amount of the Fund’s shares. The actions by one shareholder or multiple shareholders may have an impact on the Fund and, therefore, indirectly on other shareholders. Shareholder purchase and redemption activity may affect the per share amount of the Fund’s distributions of its net investment income and net realized capital gains, if any, thereby affecting the tax burden on the Fund’s shareholders subject to federal income tax. To the extent a larger shareholder (including, for example, an affiliated fund that operates as a fund-of-funds or 529 college savings plan) is permitted to invest in the Fund, the Fund may experience large inflows or outflows of cash from time to time. This activity could magnify these adverse effects on the Fund.
48

You may lose money by investing in the Fund. There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its objective. An investment in the Fund is not a bank deposit and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency.
By itself, the Fund does not constitute a complete investment plan and should be considered a long-term investment for investors who can afford to weather changes in the value of their investment.

VictoryShares US Multi-Factor Minimum Volatility ETF Summary
After-tax returns use the historical highest individual federal marginal income tax rates and do not reflect the effect of state and local taxes. In certain situations, the return after taxes on distributions and sale of fund shares may be higher than the other return amounts. A higher after-tax return may result when a capital loss occurs upon redemption and translates into an assumed tax deduction that benefits the shareholder. Actual after-tax returns depend on your tax situation and may differ from those shown. After-tax returns shown are not relevant if you own your Fund shares through tax-deferred arrangements, such as 401(k) plans or individual retirement accounts.
Management of the Fund
Investment Adviser
Victory Capital Management Inc. (the “Adviser”) serves as the Fund’s investment adviser. The portfolio manager primarily responsible for day-to-day management of the Fund is a member of the Adviser's Victory Solutions platform, which oversees the Adviser's rules-basedinvestment strategies.

Purchase and Sale of Fund Shares
The Fund will issue and redeem shares at NAV only in large blocks of 50,000 shares (each block of shares is called a “Creation Unit”). Creation Units are issued and redeemed for cash and/or in-kind for securities by Authorized Participants (“APs”) that have entered into agreements with the Fund’s distributor. Except when aggregated in Creation Units, shares are not redeemable securities of the Fund.
Shares of the Fund are listed for trading on the Exchange. Individual shares may only be purchased and sold in the secondary market through a broker or dealer at a market price. Because shares of the Fund trade at market prices rather than NAV, shares may trade at a price that is greater than (a premium), at, or less than (a discount) NAV. An investor may incur costs attributable to the difference between the highest price a buyer is willing to pay to purchase shares (bid) and the lowest price a seller is willing to accept for shares (ask) when buying or selling shares in the secondary market (the “bid-ask spread”).
For recent information about the Fund, including the Fund’s NAV, market price, premiums and discounts, and bid-ask spreads, visit vcm.com.
Tax Information
The Fund’s distributions generally are taxable as ordinary income, qualified dividend income, or capital gains. A sale of shares may result in a capital gain or loss.
Payments to Broker-Dealers and Other Financial Intermediaries
If you purchase shares through a broker-dealer or other financial intermediary (such as a bank), the Fund and its related companies may pay the intermediary for the sale of shares and related services. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing the broker-dealer or other intermediary and your salesperson to recommend the Fund over another investment. Ask your salesperson or visit your financial intermediary’s website for more information.

Victory Capital Management Inc. (the “Adviser”) has contractually agreed to waive its management fee and/or reimburse expenses so that the total annual fund operating expenses (excluding certain items such as Acquired Fund Fees and Expenses, interest, taxes, and brokerage commissions) do not exceed 0.35% through at least October 31, 2024. The Adviser is permitted to recoup advisory fees waived and expenses reimbursed for up to three years after the date of the waiver or reimbursement, subject to the lesser of any operating expense limits in effect at the time of (a) the original waiver or expense reimbursement; or (b) the recoupment, after giving effect to the recoupment amount. This agreement may only be terminated by the Fund’s Board of Trustees.
Example:
This Example is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund with the cost of investing in other funds. The example assumes that (1) you invest $10,000 in the Fund for the time periods indicated and then sell or continue to hold all of your shares at the end of the period, (2) your investment has a 5% return each year, and (3) the Fund’s operating expenses remain the same. The amounts shown reflect any fee waiver/expense reimbursement in place through its expiration date. Although your actual costs may be higher or lower, based upon these assumptions your costs would be:

Portfolio Turnover:
The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or “turns over” its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover will generally indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not

VictoryShares US 500 Enhanced Volatility Wtd ETF Summary
reflected in annual Fund operating expenses or in the example, affect the Fund’s performance. For the most recent fiscal year, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate was 271% of the average value of its portfolio.
Principal Investment Strategy
The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing, under normal market conditions, at least 80% of its assets directly or indirectly in the securities included in the Nasdaq Victory US Large Cap 500 Long/Cash Volatility Weighted Index (the “Index”), an unmanaged, volatility weighted index maintained exclusively by Nasdaq, Inc. (the “Index Provider”). The Index Provider is not affiliated with the Fund or the Adviser.
The Index combines fundamental criteria with individual security risk control achieved through volatility weighting of individual securities. In accordance with a rules-based mathematical formula, the Index tactically reduces its exposure to the equity markets during periods of significant market decline and reallocates to stocks when market prices have further declined or rebounded. The term “Enhanced” in the Fund’s name refers to a feature of the Index that is designed to enhance risk-adjusted returns while attempting to minimize downside market risk through defensive positioning, as described below.
The Index follows a rules-based methodology to construct its constituent securities:
The Index universe begins with all publicly traded U.S. stocks and then screens for all companies with positive earnings across the last 12 months.
The Index identifies the 500 largest U.S. stocks by market capitalization measured at the time the Index’s constituent securities are determined.
The 500 stocks are weighted based on their daily standard deviation (volatility) of daily price changes over the last 180 trading days. Stocks with lower volatility receive a higher weighting and stocks with higher volatility receive a lower weighting.
The Index is reconstituted every March and September (based on information as of the prior month-end) and is adjusted to limit exposure to any particular sector to 25%. The Index may include more than or fewer than 500 stocks depending on the number of companies meeting the Index’s criteria. As of September 30, 2023, the Index had a market capitalization range from $0.5 billion to $2.7 trillion.
The Index follows a mathematical index construction process designed to limit risk during periods of significant (non-normal) market decline by reducing its exposure to the equity market by allocating a portion of the Index to cash or cash equivalents. Market decline is measured at month-end by reference to the Nasdaq Victory US Large Cap 500 Volatility Weighted Index (“Reference Index”), an unmanaged, volatility weighted index, which is composed of the same securities as in the Index but without any allocation to cash or cash equivalents.
A “significant market decline” means a decline of 10% or more from the Reference Index’s all-time daily high closing value compared to its most recent month-end closing value, during which the Index’s exposure to the market may be as low as 25% depending on the magnitude and duration of such decline.
During a period of significant market decline that is 10% or more but less than 20% (the “initial trigger point”), the Index will allocate 75% of the stocks included in the Index to cash or cash equivalents, with the remaining 25% consisting of stocks included in the Reference Index.
The Index will reallocate all or a portion of its cash or cash equivalents to stocks when the Reference Index reaches certain additional trigger points, measured at a subsequent month end, as follows:
The Index will return to being 100% allocated to stocks if the subsequent month end closing value of the stocks in the Reference Index returns to a level that is less than the initial trigger point.
52

VictoryShares US 500 Enhanced Volatility Wtd ETF Summary
If the Reference Index declines by 20% or more but less than 30% from its all-time daily high closing value as measured at a subsequent month end, the Index will reallocate an additional 25% to the stocks in the Reference Index at their current securities weightings and the Index will then be 50% allocated to stocks included in the Reference Index.
If the Reference Index declines by 30% or more but less than 40% from its all-time daily high closing value as measured at a subsequent month end, the Index will reallocate another 25% to the stocks of the Reference Index at their current securities weighting and the Index will then be 75% allocated to stocks included in the Reference Index.
If the Reference Index declines by 40% or more from its all-time daily high closing value as measured at a subsequent month end, the Index will reallocate the remaining 25% to the stocks in the Reference Index at their current securities weighting. At this point, the Index will be 100% allocated to stocks included in the Reference Index.
The Index will make any prescribed allocations to cash in accordance with the mathematical formula only at month end. In the event that it does, the Fund may experience higher portfolio turnover and incur additional transaction costs.
During any periods of significant market decline, when the Index’s exposure to the market is less than 100%, the cash portion of the Index will be invested in 30-day U.S. Treasury bills or in money market mutual funds that primarily invest in short-term U.S. Treasury obligations.
While the Fund generally seeks to track the returns of the Index before fees and expenses by employing a replication strategy that seeks to hold all the stocks in the Index, at times the Fund may pursue its investment objective by investing in the Index securities indirectly by investing all or a portion of its assets in another investment company advised by the Adviser, including an exchange-traded fund (“ETF”), that seeks to track the Index or the Reference Index.
Principal Risks of Investing in the Fund
The Fund’s investments are subject to the following principal risks:
Equity Securities Risk — The value of the equity securities in which the Fund invests may decline in response to developments affecting individual companies and/or general economic conditions in the United States or abroad. A company’s earnings or dividends may not increase as expected (or may decline) because of poor management, competitive pressures, reliance on particular suppliers or geographical regions, labor problems or shortages, corporate restructurings, fraudulent disclosures, man-made or natural disasters, military confrontations or wars, terrorism, public health crises, or other events, conditions, and factors. Price changes may be temporary or last for extended periods.
Market Risk — Overall market risks may affect the value of the Fund. Domestic and international factors such as political events, war, terrorism, trade disputes, inflation rates, interest rate levels, and other fiscal and monetary policy changes; cybersecurity incidents, pandemics, and other public health crises; sanctions against a particular foreign country, its nationals, businesses, or industries; and related geopolitical events, as well as environmental disasters such as earthquakes, fires, and floods, or other catastrophes, may add to instability in global economies and markets generally, and may lead to increased market volatility. Global economies and financial markets are highly interconnected, which increases the possibility that conditions in one country or region might adversely affect issuers in another country or region. The impact of these and other factors may be short-term or may last for extended periods.
Large-Capitalization Stock Risk — The securities of large-sized companies may underperform the securities of smaller-sized companies or the market as a whole. The growth rate of larger, more established companies may lag those of smaller companies, especially during periods of economic expansion.
53

VictoryShares US 500 Enhanced Volatility Wtd ETF Summary
Debt Securities Risk — The value of the Fund’s direct or indirect investments in fixed income securities changes in response to various factors, including, for example, market-related factors (such as changes in interest rates or changes in the risk appetite of investors generally) and changes in the actual or perceived ability of the issuer (or of issuers generally) to meet its (or their) obligations.
Portfolio Turnover Risk — Higher portfolio turnover ratios resulting from additional purchases and sales of portfolio securities generally will result in higher transaction costs and Fund expenses and may result in more significant distributions of short-term capital gains to investors, which are taxed as ordinary income.
Investment Company Risk — An investment company or similar vehicle (including an ETF) in which the Fund invests may not achieve its investment objective. Underlying investment vehicles are subject to investment advisory and other expenses, which will be indirectly paid by the Fund. Lack of liquidity in an ETF could result in an ETF being more volatile than the underlying portfolio of securities.
Index/Defensive Positioning Risk — Because the Index’s allocation to cash versus securities is determined at month-end, there is a risk that the Index, and thus the Fund, will not react to changes in market conditions that occur between reallocations. The Fund will incur transaction costs and potentially adverse tax consequences in the event the Index allocates to cash. There is no guarantee that the Index’s prescribed defensive strategy, if employed, will be successful in minimizing downside market risk.
Passive Investment Risk/Index Risk — The Fund is designed to track the Index and is not actively managed. The Fund will not buy or sell shares of an equity security due to current or projected performance of a security, industry, or sector, unless that security is added to or removed, respectively, from the Index. The Fund does not, therefore, seek returns in excess of the Index, and does not attempt to take defensive positions or hedge against potential risks unless such defensive positions are also taken by the Index.
Calculation Methodology Risk — The Index relies on various sources of information to assess the criteria of issuers included in the Index, including information that may be based on assumptions and estimates. Neither the Fund, the Index Provider, nor the Adviser can offer assurances that the Index’s calculation methodology or sources of information will provide an accurate assessment of included issuers or correct valuation of securities, nor can they guarantee the availability or timeliness of the production of the Index.
Tracking Risk — The Fund's return may not match the return of the Index for a number of reasons, including: the Fund incurs operating expenses not applicable to the Index, and incurs costs in buying and selling securities; the Fund may not be fully invested at times; differences in the valuation of securities; and differences between the Fund's portfolio and the Index resulting from legal restrictions, cost or liquidity constraints.
Rebalancing Risk — In purchasing and selling securities to rebalance its portfolio, the Fund will pay more in brokerage commissions than it would without a rebalancing policy. As a result of the need to rebalance, the Fund also has less flexibility in the timing of purchases and sales of securities than it would otherwise, and the rebalancing may result in high portfolio turnover. While we will attempt to minimize any adverse impact to the Fund or its shareholders, the Fund may have a higher proportion of capital gains and a lower return than a fund that does not have a rebalancing policy. Errors in index data, index computations or the construction of the index in accordance with its methodology may occur from time to time and may not be identified and corrected by the Index Provider for a period of time or at all, which may have an adverse impact on the Fund and its shareholders.
Exchange-Traded Fund (“ETF”) Structure Risk — The Fund is structured as an ETF and, as a result, is subject to special risks, including:
54

VictoryShares US 500 Enhanced Volatility Wtd ETF Summary
Not Individually Redeemable — The Fund’s shares are not individually redeemable and may be redeemed by the Fund at its net asset value per share (“NAV”) only in large blocks known as Creation Units. The Fund may incur brokerage costs purchasing enough shares to constitute a Creation Unit. Alternatively, the Fund may redeem your shares by selling them on the secondary market at prevailing market prices.
Trading Issues — Trading in shares on the exchange operated by Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (the “Exchange”) may be halted due to market conditions or for reasons that, in the view of the Exchange, make trading in shares inadvisable, such as extraordinary market volatility. There can be no assurance that shares will continue to meet the listing requirements of the Exchange. There is no guarantee that an active secondary market will develop for the shares. In stressed market conditions, authorized participants may be unwilling to participate in the creation/redemption process, particularly if the market for shares becomes less liquid in response to deteriorating liquidity in the markets for the Fund’s underlying portfolio holdings, which may lead to widening of bid-ask spreads and differences between the market price of the shares and the underlying value of those shares.
Market Price Variance Risk — The market prices of shares will fluctuate in response to changes in NAV and supply and demand for shares and will include a bid-ask spread charged by the exchange specialists, market makers, or other participants that trade the particular security. There may be times when the market price and the NAV vary significantly, particularly in times of market stress. This means that shares may trade at a premium or discount to NAV and bid-ask spreads may widen.
Authorized Participants Concentration Risk — A limited number of financial institutions may be responsible for all or a significant portion of the creation and redemption activity for the Fund. If these firms exit the business or are unable or unwilling to process creation and/or redemption orders, shares may trade at a premium or discount to NAV and bid-ask spreads may widen.
Intraday Indicative Value (“IIV”) Risk — The Exchange intends to disseminate the approximate per share value of the Fund’s published basket of securities (“Deposit Securities”) every 15 seconds (the “intraday indicative value” or “IIV”). The IIV is not a real-time update of the NAV per share of the Fund because the IIV may not be calculated in the same manner as the NAV. For example, the calculation of the NAV may be subject to fair valuation at different prices than those used in the calculations of the IIV and, unlike the calculation of NAV, the IIV does not take into account Fund expenses.

In addition, the IIV is based on the published Deposit Securities and not on the Fund’s actual holdings.
Tax-Efficiency Risk — Redemptions of shares may be effected for cash, rather than in kind, which means that the Fund may need to sell portfolio securities in order to complete an in-cash redemption, and may recognize net gains on these sales. As a result, investments in the shares may be less tax-efficient than investments in ETFs that redeem solely or principally in kind, and the Fund may pay out higher annual capital gain distributions than if the in-kind redemption process was used.
Valuation Risk — The sale price the Fund could receive for a security may differ from the Fund’s valuation of the security and may differ from the value used by the Index, particularly for securities that trade in low volume or volatile markets or that are valued using a fair value methodology. The Fund relies on various sources to calculate its NAV. The information may be provided by third parties that are believed to be reliable, but the information may not be accurate due to errors by such pricing sources, technological issues, or otherwise.

VictoryShares US 500 Enhanced Volatility Wtd ETF Summary
After-tax returns use the historical highest individual federal marginal income tax rates and do not reflect the effect of state and local taxes. In certain situations, the return after taxes on distributions and sale of fund shares may be higher than the other return amounts. A higher after-tax return may result when a capital loss occurs upon redemption and translates into an assumed tax deduction that benefits the shareholder. Actual after-tax returns depend on your tax situation and may differ from those shown. After-tax returns shown are not relevant if you own your Fund shares through tax-deferred arrangements, such as 401(k) plans or individual retirement accounts.
Management of the Fund

Purchase and Sale of Fund Shares
The Fund will issue and redeem shares at NAV only in large blocks of 50,000 shares (each block of shares is called a “Creation Unit”). Creation Units are issued and redeemed for cash and/or in-kind for securities by Authorized Participants (“APs”) that have entered into agreements with the Fund’s distributor. Except when aggregated in Creation Units, shares are not redeemable securities of the Fund.
Shares of the Fund are listed for trading on the Exchange. Individual shares may only be purchased and sold in the secondary market through a broker or dealer at a market price. Because shares of the Fund trade at market prices rather than NAV, shares may trade at a price that is greater than (a premium), at, or less than (a discount) NAV. An investor may incur costs attributable to the difference between the highest price a buyer is willing to pay to purchase shares (bid) and the lowest price a seller is willing to accept for shares (ask) when buying or selling shares in the secondary market (the “bid-ask spread”).
For recent information about the Fund, including the Fund’s NAV, market price, premiums and discounts, and bid-ask spreads, visit vcm.com.
Tax Information
The Fund’s distributions generally are taxable as ordinary income, qualified dividend income, or capital gains. A sale of shares may result in a capital gain or loss.
Payments to Broker-Dealers and Other Financial Intermediaries
If you purchase shares through a broker-dealer or other financial intermediary (such as a bank), the Fund and its related companies may pay the intermediary for the sale of shares and related services. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing the broker-dealer or other intermediary and your salesperson to recommend the Fund over another investment. Ask your salesperson or visit your financial intermediary’s website for more information.

Acquired Fund Fees and Expenses are fees and expenses of investment companies in which the Fund invests that are indirectly incurred by the Fund. Total annual operating expenses may not correlate to the ratio of expenses to the average daily net assets shown in the financial highlights, which reflect the operating expenses and do not include Acquired Fund Fees and Expenses.

Victory Capital Management Inc. (the “Adviser”) has contractually agreed to waive its management fee and/or reimburse expenses so that the total annual fund operating expenses (excluding certain items such as Acquired Fund Fees and Expenses, interest, taxes, and brokerage commissions) do not exceed 0.35% through at least October 31, 2024. The Adviser is permitted to recoup advisory fees waived and expenses reimbursed for up to three years after the date of the waiver or reimbursement, subject to the lesser of any operating expense limits in effect at the time of (a) the original waiver or expense reimbursement; or (b) the recoupment, after giving effect to the recoupment amount. This agreement may only be terminated by the Fund’s Board of Trustees.
Example:
This Example is intended to help you compare the cost of investing in the Fund with the cost of investing in other funds. The example assumes that (1) you invest $10,000 in the Fund for the time periods indicated and then sell or continue to hold all of your shares at the end of the period, (2) your investment has a 5% return each year, and (3) the Fund’s operating expenses remain the same. The amounts shown reflect any fee waiver/expense reimbursement in place through its expiration date. Although your actual costs may be higher or lower, based upon these assumptions your costs would be:
1 Year
3 Years
5 Years
10 Years
$39
$129
$227
$515
Portfolio Turnover:
The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or “turns over” its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover will generally indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not

reflected in annual Fund operating expenses or in the example, affect the Fund’s performance. For the most recent fiscal year, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate was 333% of the average value of its portfolio.
Principal Investment Strategy
The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing, under normal market conditions, at least 80% of its assets directly or indirectly in the securities included in the Nasdaq Victory US Large Cap 100 High Dividend Long/Cash Volatility Weighted Index (the “Index”), an unmanaged, volatility weighted index maintained exclusively by Nasdaq, Inc. (the “Index Provider”). The Index Provider is not affiliated with the Fund or the Adviser.
The Index combines fundamental criteria with individual security risk control achieved through volatility weighting of individual securities. In accordance with a rules-based mathematical formula, the Index tactically reduces its exposure to the equity markets during periods of significant market decline and reallocates to stocks when market prices have further declined or rebounded. The term “Enhanced” in the Fund’s name refers to a feature of the Index that is designed to enhance risk-adjusted returns while attempting to minimize downside market risk through defensive positioning, as described below.
The Index follows a rules-based methodology to construct its constituent securities:
The Index universe begins with the stocks included in the Nasdaq Victory US Large Cap 500 Volatility Weighted Index, a volatility weighted index comprised of the 500 largest U.S. companies by market capitalization with positive earnings over the last twelve months.
The Index identifies the 100 highest dividend yielding stocks in the Nasdaq Victory US Large Cap 500 Volatility Weighted Index.
The 100 stocks are weighted based on their daily standard deviation (volatility) of daily price changes over the last 180 trading days. Stocks with lower volatility receive a higher weighting and stocks with higher volatility receive a lower weighting.
The Index is reconstituted every March and September (based on information as of the prior month-end) and is adjusted to limit exposure to any particular sector to 25%. The Index may include less than 100 stocks depending on the number of companies meeting the Index’s criteria. As of September 30, 2023, the Index had a market capitalization range from $0.5 billion to $4.7 billion.
The Index follows a mathematical index construction process designed to limit risk during periods of significant (non-normal) market decline by reducing its exposure to the equity market by allocating a portion of the index to cash or cash equivalents. Market decline is measured at month-end by reference to the Nasdaq Victory US Large Cap 100 High Dividend Volatility Weighted Index (“Reference Index”), which is composed of the same securities as in the Index but without any allocation to cash.
A “significant market decline” means a decline of 8% or more from the Reference Index’s all-time daily high closing value compared to its most recent month-end closing value, during which the Index’s exposure to the market may be as low as 25% depending on the magnitude and duration of such decline.
During a period of significant market decline that is 8% or more but less than 16% (the “initial trigger point”), the Index will allocate 75% of the stocks included in the Index to cash or cash equivalents, with the remaining 25% consisting of stocks included in the Reference Index.
The Index will reallocate all or a portion of its cash or cash equivalents to stocks when the Reference Index reaches certain additional trigger points, measured at a subsequent month end, as follows:
The Index will return to being 100% allocated to stocks if the subsequent month end closing value of the stocks in the Reference Index returns to a level that is less than the initial trigger point.
If the Reference Index declines by 16% or more but less than 24% from its all-time daily high
59

VictoryShares US EQ Income Enhanced Volatility Wtd ETF Summary
closing value as measured at a subsequent month end, the Index will reallocate an additional 25% to the stocks in the Reference Index at their current securities weightings and the Index will then be 50% allocated to stocks included in the Reference Index.
If the Reference Index declines by 24% or more but less than 32% from its all-time daily high closing value as measured at a subsequent month end, the Index will reallocate another 25% to the stocks of the Reference Index at their current securities weighting and the Index will then be 75% allocated to stocks included in the Reference Index.
If the Reference Index declines by 32% or more from its all-time daily high closing value as measured at a subsequent month end, the Index will reallocate the remaining 25% to the stocks in the Reference Index at their current securities weighting. At this point, the Index will be 100% allocated to stocks included in the Reference Index.
The Index will make any prescribed allocations to cash in accordance with the mathematical formula only at month end. In the event that it does, the Fund may experience higher portfolio turnover and incur additional transaction costs.
During any periods of significant market decline, when the Index’s exposure to the market is less than 100%, the cash portion of the Index will be invested in 30-day U.S. Treasury bills or in money market mutual funds that primarily invest in short-term U.S. Treasury obligations.
While the Fund generally seeks to track the returns of the Index before fees and expenses by employing a replication strategy that seeks to hold all the stocks in the Index, at times the Fund may pursue its investment objective by investing in the Index securities indirectly by investing all or a portion of its assets in another investment company advised by the Adviser, including an exchange-traded fund (“ETF”), that seeks to track the Index or the Reference Index.
Principal Risks of Investing in the Fund
The Fund’s investments are subject to the following principal risks:
Equity Securities Risk — The value of the equity securities in which the Fund invests may decline in response to developments affecting individual companies and/or general economic conditions in the United States or abroad. A company’s earnings or dividends may not increase as expected (or may decline) because of poor management, competitive pressures, reliance on particular suppliers or geographical regions, labor problems or shortages, corporate restructurings, fraudulent disclosures, man-made or natural disasters, military confrontations or wars, terrorism, public health crises, or other events, conditions, and factors. Price changes may be temporary or last for extended periods.
Market Risk — Overall market risks may affect the value of the Fund. Domestic and international factors such as political events, war, terrorism, trade disputes, inflation rates, interest rate levels, and other fiscal and monetary policy changes; cybersecurity incidents, pandemics, and other public health crises; sanctions against a particular foreign country, its nationals, businesses, or industries; and related geopolitical events, as well as environmental disasters such as earthquakes, fires, and floods, or other catastrophes, may add to instability in global economies and markets generally, and may lead to increased market volatility. Global economies and financial markets are highly interconnected, which increases the possibility that conditions in one country or region might adversely affect issuers in another country or region. The impact of these and other factors may be short-term or may last for extended periods.
Debt Securities Risk — The value of the Fund’s direct or indirect investments in fixed income securities changes in response to various factors, including, for example, market-related factors (such as changes in interest rates or changes in the risk appetite of investors generally) and changes in the actual or perceived ability of the issuer (or of issuers generally) to meet its (or their) obligations.
60

VictoryShares US EQ Income Enhanced Volatility Wtd ETF Summary
Large-Capitalization Stock Risk — The securities of large-sized companies may underperform the securities of smaller-sized companies or the market as a whole. The growth rate of larger, more established companies may lag those of smaller companies, especially during periods of economic expansion.
Investment Strategy Risk — The Fund’s dividend strategy may not be successful. Dividend paying stocks may fall out of favor relative to the overall market. In addition, the Index may not successfully identify companies that meet its objectives.
Investment Company Risk — An investment company or similar vehicle (including an ETF) in which the Fund invests may not achieve its investment objective. Underlying investment vehicles are subject to investment advisory and other expenses, which will be indirectly paid by the Fund. Lack of liquidity in an ETF could result in an ETF being more volatile than the underlying portfolio of securities.
Portfolio Turnover Risk — Higher portfolio turnover ratios resulting from additional purchases and sales of portfolio securities generally will result in higher transaction costs and Fund expenses and may result in more significant distributions of short-term capital gains to investors, which are taxed as ordinary income.
Index/Defensive Positioning Risk — Because the Index’s allocation to cash versus securities is determined at month-end, there is a risk that the Index, and thus the Fund, will not react to changes in market conditions that occur between reallocations. The Fund will incur transaction costs and potentially adverse tax consequences in the event the Index allocates to cash. There is no guarantee that the Index’s prescribed defensive strategy, if employed, will be successful in m
