Morningstar Ranking is based on total return as of 11/8/18. The Fund's total-return percentile rank is relative to all funds that are in the Morningstar ETF Large Blend and Small Blend categories. The highest (or most favorable) percentile rank is 1 and the lowest (or least favorable) percentile rank is 100. The top performing fund in a category will always receive a rank of 1. Fund rankings are subject to change monthly.

An investment in the Fund is subject to investment risk, including the possible loss of principal amount invested. The Fund, seeks to provide exposure to investments based on the following factors: value, momentum, quality, low volatility and size, and to weight such factors based on changes in the economic cycle. There can be no assurance that doing so will enhance the Fund's performance over time. Investing significantly in a particular region, industry, sector or issuer may increase volatility and risk. Fund returns may not match the return of its respective index, known as non-correlation risk, due to operating expenses incurred by the Fund. Because the Fund has the potential to be rebalanced monthly, portfolio turnover may exceed 100%. The greater the portfolio turnover, the greater the transaction costs, which could have an adverse effect on Fund performance.

Shares of Oppenheimer funds are not deposits or obligations of any bank, are not guaranteed by any bank, are not insured by the FDIC or any other agency, and involve investment risks, including the possible loss of the principal amount invested.

Before investing in any of the Oppenheimer funds, investors should carefully consider a fund's investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. Fund prospectuses and summary prospectuses contain this and other information about the funds, and may be obtained by asking your financial advisor, visiting or calling 1.800.CALL OPP (225.5677).
