Principal Investment Strategy
The Trust will invest at least 80% of the value of its assets in shares of ETFs that invest substantially all of their assets in fixed-income securities of varying credit qualities and maturities. Such fixed-income securities may include municipal bonds.
The fixed-income and preferred ETFs included in the Trust’s portfolio invest in a wide range of debt and preferred securities rated below investment-grade through investmentgrade. High-yield, below investment-grade securities or “junk” bonds are considered to be speculative and are subject to greater market and credit risks than investment-grade securities.
The fixed-income and preferred ETFs included in the Trust’s portfolio invest in debt and preferred securities with short-term, medium-term and long-term maturities. Typically, fixed-income securities with longer periods before maturity are more sensitive to interest rate changes.
The fixed-income and preferred ETFs included in the Trust’s portfolio may invest in foreign securities, including securities issued by companies headquartered or incorporated in countries considered to be emerging markets.
The Sponsor, with the assistance of Guggenheim Partners Investment Management, LLC (“GPIM”), has selected a portfolio of ETFs believed to have the best potential for current income. When selecting the ETFs for the Trust, the Sponsor considers a number of factors including, but not limited to, the size, liquidity and daily trading volume, the current dividend yield, the strategy and investment objective, the securities held by the ETFs, the expense ratio and limitations on the overlap of the underlying securities held by the ETFs.

ETFs are investment pools that hold securities. ETFs provide an efficient and relatively simple way to invest in that they offer investors the opportunity to buy and sell an entire basket of securities with a single transaction throughout the trading day. ETFs are often built like an index fund, but trade like a stock on an exchange. ETFs generally offer advantages similar to those found in index funds such as low operating costs, performance designed to track an index, the potential for high tax efficiency and consistent investment strategies. Unlike conventional mutual funds, ETFs normally issue and redeem shares on a continuous basis at their net asset value in large specified blocks of shares, known as “creation units.” Market makers, large investors and institutions deal in creation units. The Trust will buy shares of the ETF on the exchanges and will incur brokerage costs.
