Infrastructure: More than just Utilities

Contrary to popular belief, infrastructure encompasses more than just utilities and transportation. Infrastructure refers to the fundamental facilities and systems of a country, city, or area, necessary for its economy to function. Infrastructure companies provide essential services imperative for populations and markets to work, prosper and grow.

The Components of Infrastructure

[Rollover to view components of each]

It's a Global Phenomenon

With living standards rising and the global population increasing, both developed and developing economies must address the demands for improved and new infrastructure.

Aging or crumbling frameworks must be repaired or replaced      
An urbanization boom will require the development of infrastructure to meet demand

Three Macro Trends Driving Infrastructure


Experts estimate that over $40 trillion dollars will be invested in urban infrastructure over the next 20 years2.


Climate change has driven investments in water resources, renewable energy, and clean technologies.


It's expected by 2050, 21% of the world’s population will be aged 60+ (compared to 10% in 2000).3 The shift in the workforce demographic will require planning for these long-term social infrastructure trends.

Performance displayed represents past performance, which is no guarantee of future results. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate so that when shares are redeemed, they may be worth more or less than original cost. Total returns reflect the reinvestment of all dividends. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted. For up-to-date fund performance, including performance current to the most recent quarter and month-end, please visit the ETF performance page. ETFs are subject to third party transaction fees/commissions. Net asset value (NAV) is calculated by subtracting total liabilities from total assets, then dividing by the number of shares outstanding. Market close is the last price at which shares are traded. Fund shares may trade at, above or below NAV. For additional information, see the fund's prospectus.

Investors should carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of a fund before investing.

Guggenheim S&P High Income Infrastructure ETF may not be suitable for all investors. The fund is subject to the risk that medium, small and micro-capitalization stocks may under-perform other segments of the equity market or the equity market as a whole. • The fund is subject to the risk that unanticipated early closings of securities exchanges and other financial markets may result in the fund's inability to buy or sell securities or other financial instruments on that day. • In certain circumstances, it may be difficult for the fund to purchase and sell particular investments within a reasonable time at a fair price. • Investments in securities, in general, are subject to market risks that may cause their prices to fluctuate over time. An investment in the fund may lose money. • Unlike many investment companies, the fund is not actively "managed." This means that based on market and economic conditions, the fund's performance could be lower than other types of fund's that may actively shift their portfolio assets to take advantage of market opportunities or to lessen the impact of a market decline. • Tracking error risk refers to the risk that the fund’s performance may be unable to match or correlate to that of the fund’s Underlying Index, either on a daily or aggregate basis. Tracking error risk may cause the fund’s performance to be less than expected. • Shares may trade below their net asset value ("NAV"). The NAV of shares will fluctuate with changes in the market value of the fund’s holdings. In addition, although the fund’s shares are currently listed on NYSE Arca, Inc. (the "Exchange"), there can be no assurance that an active trading market for shares will develop or be maintained. • The fund’s 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 risks). • Investing in companies within one of the sectors (particularly, Energy, Industrials, Utilities and Infrastructure Clusters) may cause greater fluctuations in the value of the fund’s shares. • The fund is considered non-diversified and can invest a greater portion of its assets in securities of individual issuers than a diversified fund. As a result, changes in the market value of a single security could cause greater fluctuations in the value of the fund’s shares than would occur in a more diversified fund. • Please read the fund’s prospectus for more detailed information regarding these and other risks.
