Instead of using a centralized structure, Guggenheim’s fixed income group has four individual teams working together at macro research, sector, portfolio construction, and portfolio management levels.

Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

The Funds may not be suitable for all investors. • The Funds' market value will change in response to interest rate changes and market conditions, among other factors. In general, bond prices rise when interest rates fall and vice versa. • You may have a gain or loss when you sell your shares. • It is important to note that the Funds are not guaranteed by the U.S. government. • The Funds may have exposure to high yield securities, municipal securities, floating rate securities, foreign securities, derivative instruments, real estate, commodity markets and other fixed income securities. • Exposure to high yield securities may subject a Fund to greater volatility. • Investments in municipal securities can be affected by events that affect the municipal bond market. • Investments in syndicated bank loans generally offer a floating interest rate and involve special types of risks. • Investments in foreign securities carry additional risks when compared to U.S. securities due to the impact of diplomatic, political or economic developments in the country in question (investments in emerging markets securities are generally subject to an even greater level of risk). • Investments in derivative instruments can be more volatile and less liquid, increasing the risk of loss when compared to traditional securities. Certain of the derivative instruments are also subject to the risks of counterparty default and adverse tax treatment. • Investments in real estate securities subjects a Fund to the same risks as direct investments in real estate, which is particularly sensitive to economic downturns. • When market conditions are deemed appropriate, the Funds may use leverage to the full extent permitted by their investment policies and restrictions and applicable law. Leveraging will exaggerate the effect on net asset value of any increase or decrease in the market value of the Fund‘s portfolio. • Please see each Fund’s prospectus for more information on these and other risks.
