Prospective Shareholder Information


Open an Account

You will need to open a Guggenheim Investments shareholder account to make share transactions – buy, sell or exchange shares of the funds. You can find directions on how to open an account in the open a new Account section of this site. If you wish to invest in A- or C- class shares directly, you will need to appoint a financial professional to your account.  Please download, complete, and print an application from the forms and applications section of our website, or request an account application by calling Client Services at 800.820.0888 or 301.296.5100.

The type of application you will need depends on the type of account you want to open. For example, if you are opening a retirement account, such as an IRA, you will need a different application than you would if you were opening a taxable account. When you call Guggenheim Investments to request an account application, be sure to let the Client Services representative know what type of account you want to open to ensure that you receive the correct application.

Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of a fund carefully before investing. The fund’s prospectus contains this and other information about the fund. Please read the prospectus carefully before you invest or send money.
