The Direxion HCM Tactical Enhanced US ETF is actively managed and seeks to provide enhanced returns across multiple market cycles that are broadly correlated to the U.S. equity markets. The Fund uses a proprietary quantitative investment model based on the HCM-BuyLine® (the “Model”) developed by the Fund’s subadvisor, Howard Capital Management, Inc. (“Subadviser”), to determine if the Fund’s assets are allocated to U.S. equity securities or to cash and cash equivalents (i.e., money market funds, U.S. government securities and/or similar securities). The Fund will invest in or have exposure to, U.S. equity securities in order to achieve capital appreciation, or will invest in cash or cash equivalents in order to attempt to preserve capital during market downturns. When allocated to U.S. equities, the Fund will seek leveraged exposure of its net assets through investments in derivatives, such as swaps, in order to achieve enhanced returns.

When the Fund is allocated to U.S. equity securities, it will have approximately the following daily exposures: 80% to the S&P 500®, 80% to QQQ, and up to 40% to the Sector Allocation.** The Fund will utilize leverage to achieve total exposure of up to 200% of the Fund’s net assets to these allocations. A Sector Allocation of less than 40% may result in the Fund having less than 200% total exposure each day.
The Subadviser provides the Fund’s investment adviser, Rafferty Asset Management, LLC (“Adviser”), with investment signals (“Investing Signals”) pursuant to the Model’s determinations. The Adviser is responsible for investing the Fund’s assets pursuant to the Investing Signals and may rebalance the Fund’s portfolio as frequently as daily when invested in U.S. equity securities so that its exposure to the allocations is consistent with the Fund’s investment strategy.

- When the S&P 500 closes below the HCM-BuyLine based on a pre- determined percentage threshold, a downtrend is established and the Model generates a sell signal and goes to Cash.
- When the Model generates a buy signal the Fund will allocate equally to the S&P 500 and QQQ with an additional satellite exposure to the top ranked sector or industry**

*The Net Expense Ratio includes management fees, other operating expenses and Acquired Fund Fees and Expenses. The Fund’s adviser, Rafferty Asset Management, LLC (“Rafferty”), has entered into an Operating Expense Limitation Agreement with the Fund. Under the Operating Expense Limitation Agreement, Rafferty has contractually agreed to waive all or a portion of its management fee and/or reimburse the Fund for Other Expenses through September 1, 2024, to the extent that the Fund’s Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses exceed 1.15% of the Fund’s average daily net assets (excluding, as applicable, among other expenses, taxes, swap financing and related costs, acquired fund fees and expenses, dividends or interest on short positions, other interest expenses, brokerage commissions and extraordinary expenses). If these expenses were included, the expense ratio would be higher.
The performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate. An investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Returns for performance under one year are cumulative, not annualized. For the most recent month-end performance please visit the fund’s website at www.direxion.com.
Short-term performance, in particular, is not a good indication of the fund’s future performance, and an investment should not be made based solely on returns. Because of ongoing market volatility, fund performance may be subject to substantial short-term changes. For additional information, see the fund’s prospectus.
