FUND FEES AND EXPENSES
The table below describes the fees and expenses that you may pay if you buy, hold and sell shares of the Fund. You may pay other fees, such as brokerage commissions and other fees to financial intermediaries, which are not reflected in the table and example below. The management agreement between PGIM ETF Trust (the Trust) and PGIM Investments LLC (PGIM Investments) (the Management Agreement) provides that PGIM Investments will pay all operating expenses of the Fund, except for certain expenses, including but not limited to, interest expenses, taxes, brokerage expenses, future Rule 12b-1 fees (if any), and acquired fund fees and expenses.

Portfolio Turnover. 
The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or turns over its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual fund operating expenses or in the example, affect the Fund's performance. The Fund is newly offered; therefore, it does not have a turnover rate for the most recent fiscal year.
INVESTMENTS, RISKS AND PERFORMANCE
Principal Investment Strategies. 
The Fund invests, under normal market conditions, at least 80% of its investable assets in equity and equity-related securities. The Fund follows a value investment style to select equities of approximately 25 to 40 issuers. The Fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing, under normal circumstances, in companies that it believes are undervalued compared to their perceived worth (value companies). The Fund may invest in companies of any market capitalization. Under normal market conditions, the Fund is expected to invest predominantly in large capitalization companies, which are companies with market capitalizations (measured at the time of purchase) of $1 billion or more and are selected by the subadviser using a combination of fundamental research and systematic portfolio construction. The Fund is an actively managed exchange-traded fund (ETF) and, thus, does not seek to replicate the performance of a specified index.

The term investable assets refers to the Fund’s net assets plus any borrowings for investment purposes. The Fund’s investable assets will be less than its total assets to the extent that it has borrowed money for non-investment purposes, such as to meet anticipated redemptions.
The Fund’s subadviser selects investments for the Fund using a proprietary combination of bottom-up fundamental research and systematic portfolio construction to build a portfolio of high-conviction stocks reflecting the views of the subadviser. High-conviction stocks reflect those stocks that the subadviser believes are strong investments and the subadviser may allocate and rotate portfolio assets more heavily toward those stocks it believes are stronger investments. The subadviser will actively manage the Fund and will seek to invest in companies that it believes will provide investment returns above those of the Russell 1000 Value Index. As a result of these processes, the subadviser seeks to construct a portfolio of companies that have one or more of the following characteristics – attractive valuation metrics that are unique to that business, high levels of durability and viability of the business, good business models that are being mispriced, high returns on assets and/or equity, high free cash flow yields, management teams that are willing to make changes, and/or something operationally wrong that can be fixed or is temporary. Valuation metrics are ratios or data-points that can help provide guidance as to the value of a company and common valuation metrics that the subadviser may use among others are price to earnings, price to free-cash-flow, price to book, price to operating earnings, price to revenues, and price to dividend yield ratios.
The subadviser employs a systematic portfolio optimization process that seeks to manage overall investment risk exposures and characteristics in order to manage liquidity considerations and maintain consistency with the Fund’s objective.
In addition to common stocks, nonconvertible preferred stocks and convertible securities, equity-related securities in which the Fund invests include American Depositary Receipts (ADRs); warrants and rights that can be exercised to obtain stock or other eligible investments; investments in various types of business ventures, including partnerships and joint ventures; securities of real estate investment trusts (REITs) and similar securities. Convertible securities are securities—like bonds, corporate notes and preferred stocks—that the Fund can convert into the company's common stock, the cash value of common stock or some other equity security. The Fund may invest up to 35% of its investable assets in foreign securities.
The Fund engages in active trading—that is, frequent trading of its securities—in order to take advantage of new investment opportunities.
Principal Risks.  All investments have risks to some degree. The value of your investment in the Fund, as well as the amount of return you receive on your investment, may fluctuate significantly from day-to-day and over time.
You may lose part or all of your investment in the Fund or your investment may not perform as well as other similar investments.
An investment in the Fund is not guaranteed to achieve its investment objective; is not a deposit with a bank; and is not insured, endorsed or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. The following is a summary description of principal risks of investing in the Fund.
The order of the below risk factors does not indicate the significance of any particular risk factor.
Active Trading Risk. The Fund actively and frequently trades its portfolio securities. High portfolio turnover results in higher transaction costs, which can affect the Fund’s performance and have adverse tax consequences. In addition, high portfolio turnover may also mean that a proportionately greater amount of distributions to shareholders will be taxed as ordinary income rather than long-term capital gains compared to investment companies with lower portfolio turnover.
Authorized Participant Concentration Risk. Only an Authorized Participant (as defined in How to Buy and Sell Shares of the Fund in the Fund’s Prospectus) may engage in creation or redemption transactions directly with the Fund. The Fund has a limited number of intermediaries that act as Authorized Participants and none of these Authorized Participants is or will be obligated to engage in creation or redemption transactions. To the extent that these Authorized Participants exit the business or are unable to or choose not to proceed with creation and/or redemption orders with respect to the Fund and no other Authorized Participant creates or redeems, shares of the Fund may trade at a substantial discount or premium to net asset value (NAV), may trade at larger spreads, and possibly face trading halts and/or delisting.
Cash Transactions Risk. Unlike certain ETFs, the Fund may effect creations and redemptions in cash or partially in cash. Therefore, it may be required to sell portfolio securities and subsequently recognize gains on such sales that the Fund might not have recognized if it were to distribute portfolio securities in-kind. As such, investments in shares of the Fund may be less tax-efficient than an investment in an ETF that distributes portfolio securities entirely in-kind.
Economic and Market Events Risk. Events in the U.S. and global financial markets, including actions taken by the U.S. Federal Reserve or foreign central banks to stimulate, stabilize economic growth or the functioning of the securities markets, or otherwise reduce inflation may at times result in unusually high market volatility, which could negatively impact performance. Governmental efforts to curb inflation often have negative effects on the level of economic activity. Relatively reduced liquidity in credit and fixed income markets could adversely affect issuers worldwide.

Equity and Equity-Related Securities Risks. Equity and equity-related securities may be subject to changes in value, and their values may be more volatile than those of other asset classes. In addition to an individual security losing value, the value of the equity markets or a sector in which the Fund invests could go down. Different parts of a market can react differently to adverse issuer, market, regulatory, political and economic developments.
ETF Shares Trading Risk. Fund shares are listed for trading on NYSE Arca, Inc. (the Exchange) and the shares are bought and sold in the secondary market at market prices. The market prices of the shares of the Fund are expected to fluctuate in response to changes in the Fund's NAV, the intraday value of the Fund's holdings and supply and demand for shares of the Fund. We cannot predict whether shares of the Fund will trade above, below or at their NAV. Trading on the Exchange, including trading of Fund shares, may be halted in certain circumstances and shareholders may not be able to sell Fund shares at the time or price desired. During periods of stressed market conditions, the market for the shares of the Fund may become less liquid in response to deteriorating liquidity in the markets for the Fund's portfolio investments. This adverse effect on the liquidity of the Fund's shares could lead to differences between the market price of the Fund's shares and the NAV of those shares. There can be no assurance that the requirements of the Exchange to maintain the listing of shares of the Fund will continue to be met. At times, trading in the securities of ETFs has become volatile and unpredictable and the price of ETF shares has diverged from market driven fundamentals.
Disruptions to creations and redemptions, the existence of significant market volatility or potential lack of an active trading market for the shares of the Fund (including through a trading halt), as well as other factors, may result in the Fund's shares trading on the Exchange significantly above (at a premium) or below (at a discount) to NAV or to the intraday value of the Fund's holdings. Premiums and discounts relate to differences between the market price and NAV of the Fund's shares. During such periods, you may incur significant losses if you sell your shares of the Fund. The securities held by the Fund may be traded in markets that close at a different time than the Exchange and may trade outside of a collateralized settlement system. Liquidity in those securities may be reduced after the applicable closing times. Accordingly, during the time when the Exchange is open but after the applicable market closing, fixing or settlement times, bid-ask spreads for the Fund's shares on the Exchange and the corresponding premium or discount between the market price for Fund shares and their NAV may widen. Additionally, during times when the Exchange is open but after the applicable market is closed, there may be changes between the last quote from the closed foreign market and the value of such security during the Fund's trading day on the Exchange and this may lead to differences between the market price of the Fund's shares and the underlying value of those shares.
Cost of Buying or Selling Shares. When you buy or sell shares of the Fund through a broker, you will likely incur a brokerage commission or other charges imposed by brokers. In addition, the market price of shares of the Fund, like the price of any exchange-traded security, includes a bid-ask spread charged by the market makers or other participants that trade the particular security. The spread of the Fund's shares varies over time based on the Fund's trading volume, the spread of the Fund's underlying securities, and market liquidity and may increase if the Fund's trading volume or market liquidity decreases, or if the spread on the Fund's underlying securities increases. In times of severe market disruption, including when trading of the Fund's holdings may be halted, the bid-ask spread may increase significantly. This means that the shares may trade at a discount to the Fund's NAV, and the discount is likely to be greatest during significant market volatility.
No Guarantee of Active Trading Market Risk. While shares of the Fund are listed on the Exchange, there can be no assurance that active trading markets for the shares will develop or be maintained by market makers or by Authorized Participants. The distributor of the Fund's shares does not maintain a secondary market in the shares.
Foreign Securities Risk. Investments in securities of non-U.S. issuers (including those denominated in U.S. dollars) may involve more risk than investing in securities of U.S. issuers.  Foreign political, economic and legal systems, especially those in developing and emerging market countries, may be less stable and more volatile than in the United States. Foreign legal systems generally have fewer regulatory requirements than the U.S. legal system, particularly those of emerging markets.  In general, less information is publicly available with respect to non-U.S. companies than U.S. companies.  Non-U.S. companies generally are not subject to the same accounting, auditing, and financial reporting standards as are U.S. companies.  Additionally, the changing value of foreign currencies and changes in exchange rates could also affect the value of the assets the Fund holds and the Fund's performance.  Certain foreign countries may impose restrictions on the ability of issuers of foreign securities to make payment of principal and interest or dividends to investors located outside the country, due to blockage of foreign currency exchanges or otherwise. Investments in emerging markets are subject to greater volatility and price declines.
In addition, the Fund's investments in non-U.S. securities may be subject to the risks of nationalization or expropriation of assets, imposition of currency exchange controls or restrictions on the repatriation of non-U.S. currency, confiscatory taxation and adverse diplomatic developments. Special U.S. tax considerations may apply.
Increase in Expenses Risk. Your actual cost of investing in the Fund may be higher than the expenses shown in the expense table for a variety of reasons.

Large Capitalization Company Risk. Companies with large market capitalizations go in and out of favor based on market and economic conditions. Larger companies tend to be less volatile than companies with smaller market capitalizations. In exchange for this potentially lower risk, the Fund's value may not rise or fall as much as the value of funds that emphasize companies with smaller market capitalizations.
Large Shareholder and Large Scale Redemption Risk. Certain individuals, accounts, funds (including funds affiliated with the Manager) or institutions, including the Manager and its affiliates, may from time to time own or control a substantial amount of the Fund’s shares. There is no requirement that these entities maintain their investment in the Fund. There is a risk that such large shareholders or that the Fund’s shareholders generally may redeem all or a substantial portion of their investments in the Fund in a short period of time, which could have a significant negative impact on the Fund’s NAV, liquidity, and brokerage costs. Large redemptions could also result in tax consequences to shareholders and impact the Fund’s ability to implement its investment strategy. The Fund’s ability to pursue its investment objective after one or more large scale redemptions may be impaired and, as a result, the Fund may invest a larger portion of its assets in cash or cash equivalents.
Management Risk. Actively managed funds are subject to management risk. The subadviser will apply investment techniques and risk analyses in making investment decisions for the Fund, but the subadviser judgments about the attractiveness, value or market trends affecting a particular security, industry or sector or about market movements may be incorrect. Additionally, the investments selected for the Fund may underperform the markets in general, the Fund's benchmark and other funds with similar investment objectives.
Market Disruption and Geopolitical Risks. Market disruption can be caused by economic, financial or political events and factors, including but not limited to, international wars or conflicts (including Russia’s military invasion of Ukraine), geopolitical developments (including trading and tariff arrangements, sanctions and cybersecurity attacks), instability in regions such as Asia, Eastern Europe and the Middle East, terrorism, natural disasters and public health epidemics (including the outbreak of COVID-19 globally).
The extent and duration of such events and resulting market disruptions cannot be predicted, but could be substantial and could magnify the impact of other risks to the Fund. These and other similar events could adversely affect the U.S. and foreign financial markets and lead to increased market volatility, reduced liquidity in the securities markets, significant negative impacts on issuers and the markets for certain securities and commodities and/or government intervention. They may also cause short- or long-term economic uncertainties in the United States and worldwide. As a result, whether or not the Fund invests in securities of issuers located in or with significant exposure to the countries directly affected, the value and liquidity of the Fund’s investments may be negatively impacted. Further, due to closures of certain markets and restrictions on trading certain securities, the value of certain securities held by the Fund could be significantly impacted, which could lead to such securities being valued at zero.
COVID-19 and the related governmental and public responses have had and may continue to have an impact on the Fund’s investments and net asset value and have led and may continue to lead to increased market volatility and the potential for illiquidity in certain classes of securities and sectors of the market. They have also had and may continue to result in periods of business disruption, business closures, inability to obtain raw materials, supplies and component parts, and reduced or disrupted operations for the issuers in which the Fund invests. The occurrence, reoccurrence and pendency of public health epidemics could adversely affect the economies and financial markets either in specific countries or worldwide.
Market Risk. Securities markets may be volatile and the market prices of the Fund’s securities may decline. Securities fluctuate in price based on changes in an issuer’s financial condition and overall market and economic conditions. If the market prices of the securities owned by the Fund fall, the value of your investment in the Fund will decline.
New/Small Fund Risk. The Fund recently commenced operations and has a limited operating history. As a new and relatively small fund, the Fund's performance may not represent how the Fund is expected to or may perform in the long term if and when it becomes larger and has fully implemented its investment strategies. Investment positions may have a disproportionate impact (negative or positive) on performance in new and smaller funds. New and smaller funds may also require a period of time before they are invested in securities that meet their investment objectives and policies and achieve a representative portfolio composition. Since the Fund is new, an active secondary market for the shares of the Fund may not develop or may not continue once developed. Shareholders holding large blocks of shares of the Fund, including the Manager and its affiliates, may hold their shares for long periods of time, which may lead to reduced trading volumes, wider trading spreads and impede the development or maintenance of an active secondary trading market for Fund shares. These large shareholders may also loan or sell all or a portion of their Fund shares, which may result in increasing concentration of Fund shares in a small number of holders, and the potential for large redemptions, decreases in Fund assets and increased expenses for remaining shareholders.
Value Style Risk. Since the Fund follows a value investment style, there is the risk that the value style may be out of favor for long periods of time, that the market will not recognize a security's intrinsic value for a long time or at all, or that a stock judged to be undervalued may actually be appropriately priced or overvalued. Issuers of value stocks may have experienced adverse business developments or may be subject to special risks that have caused the stock to be out of favor. In addition, the Fund's value investment style may go out of favor with investors, negatively affecting the Fund's performance. If the

Fund's assessment of market conditions or a company's value is inaccurate, the Fund could suffer losses or produce poor performance relative to other funds.
Performance. The Fund has not been in operation for a full calendar year, and hence has no past performance data to present. Once the Fund has a performance record of at least one calendar year, the Fund’s performance will be included in its Prospectus. Updated Fund performance information, including current net asset value, is available online at www.pgim.com/investments.

BUYING AND SELLING FUND SHARES
Individual shares of the Fund may only be purchased and sold in secondary market transactions through brokers or other financial intermediaries at market prices and are not individually redeemable by the ETF. Shares of the Fund are listed for trading on the Exchange, and because the shares of the Fund trade at market prices rather than NAV, shares of the Fund may trade at a price greater than NAV (a premium) or less than NAV (a discount). You may incur costs attributable to the difference between the highest price a buyer is willing to pay to purchase shares of the Fund (bid) and the lowest price a seller is willing to accept for shares of the Fund (ask) when buying or selling shares in the secondary market (the bid-ask spread).
TAX INFORMATION
Dividends, Capital Gains and Taxes. The Fund's dividends and distributions are taxable and will be taxed as ordinary income or capital gains, unless you are investing through a tax-deferred arrangement, such as a 401(k) plan or an individual retirement account. Such tax-deferred arrangements may be taxed later upon withdrawal of monies from those arrangements.
PAYMENTS TO BROKER-DEALERS AND OTHER FINANCIAL INTERMEDIaries
If you purchase shares of the Fund through a broker-dealer or other financial intermediary (such as a bank), PGIM or other related companies may pay the intermediary for marketing activities and presentations, educational training programs, conferences, the development of technology platforms and reporting systems or other services related to the sale or promotion of the Fund. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing the broker-dealer or other intermediary and your salesperson to recommend the Fund over another investment. Ask your salesperson or visit your financial intermediary’s website for more information.
