Benefits of Pure Style ETFs

  • Precise Style Exposure.
    By eliminating ambiguous or blend style stocks, a pure style approach delivers exposure to only those stocks with the strongest value and growth style attributes.
  • Outperformance Potential.
    Pure Style ETFs are positioned to provide targeted style exposure, giving them the potential to outperform when a particular style is in favor. Alternatively, when a particular style is out of favor, Pure Style ETFs linked to that style may under perform.
  • Potential Tax-Efficient Exposure.
    Due to the tax-efficient nature of the ETF structure (creation/redemption process), Guggenheim pure style ETFs historically have not paid long-term capital gains. There is no guarantee that this will be the case in the future. Tax-efficient exposure is not an explicit objective of the funds.

Uses of Pure Style ETFs

  • Focused Style Approach.
    Allows you to take a more focused approach to growth and value style investing by eliminating stocks with overlapping factors.
  • Adding a Style Tilt.
    May be used to overweight value or growth as an enhancement to an existing broad market S&P 500® ETF investment.
  • Exposure to Growth and Value without Overlap.
    May be used in tandem to capture the potential benefits of both growth and value stocks simultaneously without “muddying the waters” between the two styles or owning overlapping stocks.

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

Pure style ETFs may not be suitable for all investors. The ETFs are subject to the risk that large, medium and small-capitalization stocks may under-perform other segments of the equity market or the equity market as a whole • Value stocks are subject to the risk that the intrinsic value of the stock may never be realized by the market or that the price goes down. Growth stocks typically invest a high portion of their earnings back into their business and may lack the dividend yield that could cushion their decline in a market downturn. Growth stocks may be more volatile than other stocks because they are more sensitive to investor perceptions regarding the growth potential of the issuing company. • The funds are subject to the risk that unanticipated early closings of securities exchanges and other financial markets may result in the funds’ inability to buy or sell securities or other financial instruments on that day. • In certain circumstances, it may be difficult for the funds 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 funds may lose money. • Unlike many investment companies, the funds are not actively “managed.” This means that based on market and economic conditions, the funds’ performance could be lower than other types of funds 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 Advisor may not be able to cause thfe funds’ performance to match or correlate to that of the funds’ Underlying Index, either on a daily or aggregate basis. Tracking error risk may cause the funds’ performance to be less than you expect. • Shares may trade below their net asset value (“NAV”). The NAV of shares will fluctuate with changes in the market value of the funds’ holdings. In addition, although the funds’ 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. • Each fund is considered nondiversified 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 fund shares than would occur in a more diversified fund. • Please read the prospectus for more detailed information regarding these and other risks.
