Touchstone Ultra Short Income ETF pursues revenue with a multi-sector, lower-duration approach.

CINCINNATI, August 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Touchstone Investments, known for its Distinctively Active® mutual funds, announced the launch of its fourth actively managed exchange-traded fund (ETF), the Touchstone Ultra Short Income ETF (TUSI: Cboe BZX). ETFs mark the natural extension of Touchstone’s Distinctively Active investment philosophy through an ETF structure, offering shareholders more investment options.

Each of the four ETFs has a corresponding Touchstone mutual fund that shares a similar core investment strategy. Four that have launched in recent weeks are:

  • Touchstone Strategic Income Opportunities ETF (SIO: NYSE Arca) — The expanded opportunity set of this multi-sector bond strategy provides the flexibility to invest effectively in a variety of different markets and focuses on providing a high and stable level of income and total return. (Beginning: July 212022)
  • Touchstone US Focused Large-Cap ETF (LCF: Cboe BZX) — This fund seeks capital appreciation by investing in US-listed equity securities that have a market capitalization at the time of purchase above 5 billion dollars and focuses on investing in companies with reasonable valuations combined with distinct barriers to entry in their respective markets. (Beginning: July 27, 2022)
  • Touchstone Dividend Selection ETF (DVND: NYSE Arca) — This fund seeks a high level of current income and capital appreciation by investing primarily in a portfolio of dividend-paying, large-cap stocks that have the potential to support reliable, growing dividends along with reasonable estimates. (Beginning: August 2, 2022)
  • Touchstone Ultra Short Income ETF (TUSI: Cboe BZX) — This fund seeks maximum total return consistent with capital preservation by investing primarily in a diversified portfolio of investment grade fixed income securities; its portfolio has been managed to maintain an effective duration of one year or less under normal market conditions. (Beginning: August 4, 2022)

Touchstone’s ETFs have the potential to deliver excess returns and complement most investment portfolios; attempt to reduce unintended risks and provide flexibility to capture the upside potential and limit the downside risk associated with an index; and provide the potential for a more tax-efficient, cost-competitive and transparent way to access Touchstone investment strategies without an investment minimum.

Distinctively active management has long been the hallmark of Touchstone’s investment philosophy, so extending its Distinctively Active approach to ETFs is a natural extension of Touchstone’s core competencies. Touchstone’s commitment to being an active Differentiator means executing a fully integrated and rigorous process for identifying and partnering with best-in-class asset managers to sub-advise the firm’s funds. The four new Touchstone ETFs are sub-advised by Fort Washington Investment Advisors, a long-time sub-adviser of the Touchstone Funds.

A word about risk

Investing involves risk, including potential loss of principal.

Fixed income securities may lose their value as interest rates rise and are subject to credit risk, which is the risk that an issuer’s financial condition and/or general economic conditions may deteriorate the issuer not making timely payments of principal and interest also causes the value of the securities to decline and an investor may lose principal. When interest rates rise, the price of debt securities generally falls. Long-term securities are generally more volatile. Investment grade debt securities may be downgraded by a Nationally Recognized Statistical Rating Organization (NRSRO) to investment grade status. Non-investment grade debt securities, which are considered speculative with respect to the issuer’s ability to make timely payments of interest and principal, may lack liquidity and may experience more frequent and greater price changes than other debt papers.

Shares are subject to market volatility and loss. Large capital companies which may not be able to respond quickly to new competitive challenges. There is no guarantee that dividend paying companies will declare dividends in the future or that dividends, if declared, will remain at current levels or increase over time. Dividend-paying securities may be sensitive to changes in interest rates, and as interest rates rise or fall, the prices of these securities may decline. Mid-cap companies may be subject to more erratic market movements than stocks of larger, more established companies. Funds that focus their investments on specific sectors may have a greater risk that adverse circumstances will have a greater impact on a fund that does not. A fund that is not diversified, meaning that it may invest a greater percentage of its assets in the securities of a limited number of issuers, may be subject to greater risks.

ETFs are actively managed and do not seek to track a specific index. ETFs are bought and sold through an exchange at the current market price, not net asset value (NAV), and are not purchased individually by the fund. Shares may trade at a premium or discount to their NAV when traded on a stock exchange. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns. There can be no assurance that an active market for the ETFs will develop or be maintained, or that the listing of the ETFs will continue or remain unchanged.

Please carefully consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risks, fees and expenses before investing. The prospectus and summary prospectus contain this and other information about the Fund. To obtain a prospectus or a summary prospectus, contact your financial professional or download and/or request one at or call Touchstone at 800-638-8194. Please read the prospectus and/or summary prospectus carefully before investing.

The investment return and principal value of an investment in a Fund will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when purchased, may be worth more or less than their original cost.
