For all BetaPro inverse (excluding HIX and HIU), leveraged, inverse leveraged or volatility ETFs, the Risk Rating is High.

1Risk ratings are determined based on the historical volatility of a Horizons ETF as measured by the standard deviation of its performance against its mean. The risk categorization of a Horizons ETF may change over time and historical volatility is not indicative of future volatility. Generally, a risk rating is assigned to a Horizons ETF based on the historical rolling five-year standard deviation of its return, the return of its underlying index, or of an applicable proxy index. In cases where the Manager believes that this methodology produces a result that is not indicative of the ETF’s future volatility, the risk rating may be determined by the ETF’s category. The risk rating of each Horizons ETF is reviewed at least annually, as well as when there is a material change in the ETF’s investment objective or investment strategies. Risk ratings are not intended for use as a substitute for undertaking a proper and complete suitability or financial assessment by an investment advisor.

2Plus applicable sales tax. Annual Management Fee is the management fee on Class E units. Advisor Class units where applicable have a higher annual management fee which reflects the Service Fee paid to registered dealers by the Manager. Each ETF may be subject to additional operating expenses as outlined in its applicable prospectus.

3Annual management fee 0.07% rebated by 0.04% to an effective management fee of 0.03%, until at least September 30, 2017 (PLUS APPLICABLE SALES TAX).

40.50% of the net asset value of the Class E Units of Horizons HEW at or below $30,000,000; plus 0.40% of any portion of the net asset value of the Class E Units of Horizons HEW that exceeds $30,000,000.

Horizons ETFs is a Member of Mirae Asset Global Investments. Commissions, trailing commissions, management fees and expenses all may be associated with an investment in exchange traded products managed by Horizons ETFs Management (Canada) Inc. (the "Horizons Exchange Traded Products"). The Horizons Exchange Traded Products are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated. The prospectus contains important detailed information about the Horizons Exchange Traded Products. Please read the relevant prospectus before investing.

The Horizons Exchange Traded Products consist of the Horizons Index ETFs ("Index ETFs"), 2x Daily Bull and -2x Daily Bear ETFs ("2x Daily ETFs"), Inverse ETFs ("Inverse ETFs"), VIX ETFs (defined below) and active ETFs. The 2x Daily ETFs and certain other Horizons Exchange Traded Products use leveraged investment techniques that can magnify gains and losses and may result in greater volatility of returns. These Horizons Exchange Traded Products are subject to leverage risk and may be subject to aggressive investment risk and price volatility risk, which, where applicable, are described in their respective prospectuses. Each 2x Daily ETF seeks a return, before fees and expenses, that is either 200% or -200% of the performance of a specified underlying index, commodity or benchmark (the "Target") for a single day. Each Index ETF or Inverse ETF seeks a return that is 100% or -100%, respectively, of the performance of a Target. Due to the compounding of daily returns, a 2x Daily ETF's or Inverse ETF's returns over periods other than one day will likely differ in amount and possibly direction from the performance of their respective Target(s) for the same period. The Horizons Exchange Traded Products whose Target is the S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures Index™ (the "VIX ETFs"), one of which is a 2x Daily ETF and one of which is an Index ETF, as described in their prospectus, are speculative investment tools that are not conventional investments. The VIX ETFs' Target is highly volatile. As a result, the VIX ETFs are not generally viewed as stand-alone long-term investments. Historically, the VIX ETFs' Target has tended to revert to a historical mean. As a result, the performance of the VIX ETFs' Target is expected to be negative over the longer term and neither the VIX ETFs nor their Target are expected to have positive long term performance. Investors should monitor their holdings, as frequently as daily, to ensure that they remain consistent with their investment strategies.

*The indicated rates of return are the historical annual compounded total returns including changes in per unit value and reinvestment of all dividends or distributions and do not take into account sales, redemption, distribution or optional charges or income taxes payable by any securityholder that would have reduced returns. The rates of return shown in the table are not intended to reflect future values of the ETF or returns on investment in the ETF. Only the returns for periods of one year or greater are annualized returns.
