The above graph present information about the differences between the daily closing price for shares of the fund and the fund's net asset value (NAV). The closing prices are determined by the fund's listing exchange. The vertical axis of the line graph shows the premium or discount expressed as a percentage of NAV. The horizontal axis indicates the date at which the premium/discount occurred. The table shows the number of trading days in which the fund traded at a premium, discount or at NAV.
Close of trading times: The Fund NAV is normally calculated using prices as of 4:00pm ET. The Fund normally trades on its respective stock exchange until 4:00pm ET.
Time of last trade: Trading generally takes place throughout the normal trading hours for the Fund on the listing exchange on which it is listed (generally, from 9:30am to 4:00pm ET). In calculating its NAV, a fund generally values its assets on the basis of market quotations, last sale prices, or estimates of value furnished by a pricing service or brokers who make markets in such instruments. The value of foreign securities may change on days when a shareholder will not be able to purchase or redeem fund shares because foreign markets are open at times and on days when US markets are not. The Fund prices fixed income securities on the basis of valuations provided by an independent pricing service that uses methods approved by the Board. If such information is not available for a security held by a Fund or is determined to be unreliable, the security will be valued at fair value estimates under guidelines established by the Board.
The premiums and discounts shown for international funds may be less accurate due to the differences in closing times between US and international markets. As a result, for most international funds, the traditional measure of premium/discount (closing price/NAV) may be more reflective of different market hours than true trading premium/discounts.
Shareholders may pay more than NAV when buying fund shares and receive less than NAV when selling fund shares, because shares are bought and sold at current market prices.
Holdings are as of the date indicated and subject to change. List may exclude cash and cash equivalents.
The values shown for “% of portfolio” (the “calculated values”) are based off of a price provided by a third-party pricing vendor for the portfolio holding and do not reflect the impact of systematic fair valuation (“the vendor price”). The vendor price is not necessarily the price at which the Fund values the portfolio holding for the purposes of determining its net asset value (the “valuation price”). Additionally, where applicable, foreign currency exchange rates with respect to the portfolio holdings denominated in non-US currencies for the valuation price will be generally determined as of the close of business on the New York Stock Exchange, whereas for the vendor price will be generally determined as of 4:00pm GMT. The calculated values may have been different if the valuation price were to have been used to calculate such values. The vendor price is as of the most recent date for which a price is available and may not necessarily be as of the date shown above.
1. The MSCI World Index represents large- and mid-cap stocks across 23 developed market countries worldwide. The index covers approximately 85% of the free float-adjusted market capitalization in each country. Index “net” return approximates the minimum possible dividend reinvestment, after deduction of withholding tax at the highest possible rate.
2. The S&P Global Infrastructure Index is composed of 75 of the largest publicly listed companies in the global infrastructure industry. The index has balanced weights across three distinct infrastructure clusters: energy, transportation, and utilities. The “net total return” index reinvests regular cash dividends after the deduction of applicable.
The Fund’s investment manager, Delaware Management Company (Manager), may permit its affiliate, Macquarie Investment Management Global Limited (MIMGL), to execute Fund security trades on behalf of the Manager. The Manager may also seek quantitative support from MIMGL. Delaware Management Company is a series of Macquarie Investment Management Business Trust (a Delaware statutory trust).
Carefully consider the Fund's investment objectives, risk factors, and charges and expenses before investing. This and other information can be found in the Fund's prospectus or the summary prospectus, which may be obtained by visiting the Macquarie ETF Trust resource pages or calling 844 469-9911. Read the prospectus carefully before investing.

Macquarie ETF Trust exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are actively managed and do not seek to replicate a specific index. ETF shares are bought and sold through an exchange at the then current market price, not net asset value (NAV), and are not individually redeemed from the fund. Shares may trade at a premium or discount to their NAV when traded on an exchange. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns. There can be no guarantee that an active market for ETFs will develop or be maintained, or that the ETF's listing will continue or remain unchanged.
Investing in any exchange-traded fund involves the risk that you may lose part or all of the money you invest. Over time, the value of your investment in the Fund will increase and decrease according to changes in the value of the securities in the Fund’s portfolio. An investment in the Fund may not be appropriate for all investors.
The Fund’s principal risks include but are not limited to the following:
Market risk is the risk that all or a majority of the securities in a certain market — like the stock market or bond market — will decline in value because of factors such as adverse political or economic conditions, future expectations, investor confidence, or heavy institutional selling.
Governments or regulatory authorities may take actions that could adversely affect various sectors of the securities markets and affect fund performance.
Large-capitalization companies tend to be less volatile than companies with smaller market capitalizations. This potentially lower risk means that the Fund's share price may not rise as much as the share prices of funds that focus on smaller capitalization companies.
Investments in small and/or medium-sized companies typically exhibit greater risk and higher volatility than larger, more established companies.
International investments entail risks including fluctuation in currency values, differences in accounting principles, or economic or political instability. Investing in emerging markets can be riskier than investing in established foreign markets due to increased volatility, lower trading volume, and higher risk of market closures. In many emerging markets, there is substantially less publicly available information, and the available information may be incomplete or misleading. Legal claims are generally more difficult to pursue.
Investing with a focus on companies that exhibit a commitment to sustainable practices may result in the Fund investing in certain types of companies, industries or sectors that the market may not favor. The securities of such companies may underperform the stock market as a whole and, the criteria used to select companies for investment may result in the Fund investing in securities that underperform securities of companies that do not exhibit such a commitment to sustainability.
Companies in the infrastructure industry may be subject to a variety of factors that could adversely affect their business or operations, including high interest costs in connection with capital construction programs, high degrees of leverage, costs associated with governmental, environmental and other regulations, the level of government spending on infrastructure projects, and other factors.
The Funds are actively managed. The Manager applies a Fund's investment strategies and selects securities for the Fund in seeking to achieve the Fund's investment objective(s). There can be no guarantee that its decisions will produce the desired results, and securities selected by a Fund may not perform as well as the securities held by other exchange-traded funds with investment objectives that are similar to the investment objective(s) of the Fund. In general, investment decisions made by the Manager may not produce the anticipated returns, may cause a Fund's shares to lose value or may cause a Fund to perform less favorably than other exchange-traded funds with similar investment objectives.
The Fund is an ETF, and, as a result of an ETF’s structure, it is exposed to the following risks: “Authorized participants, market makers and liquidity providers concentration risk,” “Secondary Market Trading Risk” and “Shares may trade at prices other than NAV risk.”
Only authorized participants (“APs”) may engage in creation or redemption transactions directly with the Fund. The Fund has a limited number of financial institutions that are institutional investors and may act as APs. In addition, there may be a limited number of market makers and/or liquidity providers in the marketplace, and they have no obligation to submit creation or redemption orders. To the extent either of the following events occur, the Fund’s shares may trade at a material discount to net asset value (“NAV”) and possibly face delisting: (i) APs exit the business or otherwise become unable to process creation and/or redemption orders and no other APs step forward to perform these services, or (ii) market makers and/or liquidity providers exit the business or significantly reduce their business activities and no other entities step forward to perform their functions. These events, among others, may lead to the Fund’s shares trading at a premium or discount to NAV. A diminished market for an ETF's shares substantially increases the risk that a shareholder may pay considerably more or receive significantly less than the underlying value of the ETF shares bought or sold.
Although the Fund’s shares are listed on a national securities exchange, The New York Stock Exchange (“Exchange”), and may be traded on U.S. exchanges other than the Exchange, there can be no assurance that an active or liquid trading market for them will develop or be maintained. In addition, trading in the Fund’s shares on the Exchange may be halted. In addition, an exchange or market may issue trading halts on specific securities or financial instruments. As a result, the ability to trade certain securities or financial instruments may be restricted, which may disrupt the Fund’s creation/redemption process or affect the price at which shares trade in the secondary market.
As with all ETFs, shares of the Fund may be bought and sold in the secondary market at market prices. The Fund’s NAV is calculated at the end of each business day and fluctuates with changes in the market value of the Fund’s holdings, while the trading price of the shares fluctuates continuously throughout trading hours on the Exchange, based on both the relative market supply of, and demand for, the shares and the underlying value of the Fund’s holdings. As a result, although it is expected that the market price of the Fund’s shares will approximate the Fund’s NAV, there may be times when the market price of the Fund’s shares is more than the NAV intra-day (premium) or less than the NAV intra-day (discount). This risk is heightened in times of market volatility or periods of steep market declines.
Transactions in shares of ETFs will result in brokerage commissions and will generate tax consequences. All regulated investment companies are obliged to distribute portfolio gains to shareholders.
Shares of ETFs are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the fund. Any applicable brokerage commissions will reduce returns.
The Fund is a newly organized, diversified management investment company with no operating history. In addition, there can be no assurance that the Fund will grow to, or maintain, an economically viable size, in which case the Board of Trustees of the Trust (the “Board") may determine to liquidate the Fund.
