Underlying securities offered include Tesla, Inc. (TSLA), NVIDIA Corporation (NVDA), ConocoPhillips Company (COP), Boeing Company (BA), PayPal Holdings, Inc. (PYPL), Wells Fargo & Company (WFC), Pfizer Inc. (PFE), salesforce.com, Inc. (CRM) and Nike Inc. (NKE).
The funds’ investment adviser, AXS Investments, LLC (“AXS”), would seek to achieve these investment objectives by entering into one or more swap agreements with major global financial institutions and may invest between 40% and 80% of the fund’s portfolio. a fund in collateral investments (for example., US government securities and money market funds).
