Fund Description

The Fund employs a “passive management” (or indexing) investment approach designed to track the total return performance, before fees and expenses, of the Index. The Index is based on a proprietary methodology developed and maintained by Index Design Group (the “Index Provider”), an affiliate of Pacer Advisors, Inc., the Fund’s investment adviser (the “Adviser”).
The Index
The Index uses an objective, rules-based methodology to implement a systematic trend-following strategy that directs exposure (i) 100% to the S&P 500® Index (the “S&P 500”), (ii) 50% to the S&P 500 and 50% to 3-Month US Treasury bills, or (iii) 100% to 3-Month US Treasury bills, depending on the relative performance of the S&P 500 and its 200-business day historical simple moving average (the “200-day moving average”). The calculation of the 200-day moving average for the S&P 500 is based on the total return version of the S&P 500 and reflects the reinvestment of dividends paid by the securities in the S&P 500. The Index is expected to be predominantly invested in the components of the S&P 500 over most short- and long-term periods and is only expected to invest in 3-Month US Treasury bills from time to time in response to adverse market conditions as defined by the “50/50 Indicator” and “T-Bill Indicator” below. The S&P 500 consists of approximately 500 leading U.S.-listed companies representing approximately 80% of the U.S. equity market capitalization.
The Index, and consequently the Fund, may stay in any of its three possible positions for an extended period of time. As described below, the Index will change its position based on the following indicators, and each change will become effective at the close of business on the first business day after the indicator for the change is triggered. The Index will be in a new position effective on the second business day.
Equity Indicator. When the S&P 500 closes above its 200-day moving average for five consecutive business days (the “Equity Indicator”), the exposure of the Index will be 100% to the S&P 500, effective at the close of business on the first business day following the date of the Equity Indicator. The Index will be in a new position effective on the second business day.
Once the Equity Indicator has been triggered, the exposure of the Index will next change to either be 50% to the S&P 500and 50% to 3-Month US Treasury bills if the 50/50 Indicator (described below) is triggered or 100% to 3-Month US Treasury bills if both the 50/50 Indicator and the T-Bill Indicator (described below) are triggered simultaneously, effective at the close of business on the first business day following the date of the indicator(s). The Index will be in a new position effective on the second business day.
50/50 Indicator. When the S&P 500 closes below its 200-day moving average for five consecutive business days (the “50/50 Indicator”), the exposure of the Index will be 50% to the S&P 500and 50% to 3-Month US Treasury bills, effective at the close of business on the first business day following the date of the 50/50 Indicator. The Index will be in a new position effective on the second business day. Following the effectiveness of the 50/50 Indicator, the exposure of the Index may be greater than or less than 50% with respect to the S&P 500and 3-Month US Treasury bills depending on their respective performance until either the Equity Indicator or T-Bill Indicator (described below) is triggered.
Once the 50/50 Indicator has been triggered, the exposure of the Index will next change to either be 100% to the S&P 500 if the Equity Indicator is triggered or 100% to 3-Month US Treasury bills if the T-Bill Indicator (described below) is triggered, effective at the close of business on the first business day following the date of the indicator. The Index will be in a new position effective on the second business day.
T-Bill Indicator. When the S&P 500’s 200-day moving average closes lower than its value from five business days earlier (the “T-Bill Indicator”) and the 50/50 Indicator has been triggered, the exposure of the Index will be 100% to 3-Month US Treasury bills, effective at the close of business on the first business day following the date of the T-Bill Indicator. The Index will be in a new position effective on the second business day.
For example, if today is Wednesday and the S&P 500’s 200-day moving average closes lower than it did on the fifth preceding business day (Wednesday of the preceding week), the T-Bill Indicator is triggered. Unlike the operation of the Equity Indicator and 50/50 Indicator, the closing values on the days in between today and the fifth preceding business day do not affect whether the T-Bill Indicator has been triggered; rather, the T-Bill Indicator simply compares today’s closing value to the closing value five business days earlier. However, the Index will not move directly from 100% exposure to the S&P 500 to 100% exposure to 3-Month US Treasury bills unless the 50/50 Indicator was simultaneously triggered following the most recent triggering of the Equity Indicator.
Once the T-Bill Indicator has been triggered, the exposure of the Index will next change to be 100% to the S&P 500 if the Equity Indicator is triggered, effective at the close of business on the first business day following the date of the indicator. The Index will be in a new position effective on the second business day. Once the T-Bill Indicator has been triggered, the Index will not return to its 50/50 position unless the Equity Indicator is first triggered, followed by the 50/50 Indicator being triggered.
The Index aims to mitigate, to some extent, the volatility of the S&P 500 by tracking 3-Month US Treasury bills (instead of the S&P 500) when the S&P 500 is in a negative trend.
Special Indicator. In the event the S&P 500 closes 20% above or 20% below its 200-day moving average, the Index will change exposures effective at the end of the following business day to be 50% to the S&P 500 and 50% to 3-Month US Treasury bills. This new exposure will continue until the Equity Indicator, 50/50 Indicator, or T-Bill Indicator is triggered.
The Fund’s Investment Strategy
Under normal circumstances, at least 80% of the Fund’s total assets (exclusive of collateral held from securities lending) will be invested in the component securities of the Index. The Adviser expects that, over time, the correlation between the Fund’s performance and that of the Index, before fees and expenses, will be 95% or better.
The Fund will generally use a “replication” strategy to achieve its investment objective, meaning it will invest in all of the component securities of the Index in the same approximate proportion as in the Index.
