* The Historical Annual Dividend Distribution (HADD) per unit is as of the day prior to trust deposit and subject to change. The HADD per unit is the weighted average of the trailing twelve-month distributions paid by the securities included in the portfolio. The HADD rate is based on the HADD divided by the current offer price and recalculated daily. Both the HADD per unit and the rate shown are reduced to account for the effects of fees and expenses, which will be incurred when investing in the Trust. The HADD per unit and rate will vary due to certain factors that may include, but are not limited to, a change in the dividends paid by issuers, a change in Trust expenses or the sale or maturity of securities in the portfolio. There is no guarantee the issuers of the securities included in the Trust will declare dividends or distributions in the future. The HADD of the securities included in the Trust is for illustrative purposes only and is not indicative of the Trust’s distribution. Due to the negative economic impact across many industries caused by the recent COVID-19 outbreak, certain issuers of the securities included in the trust may elect to reduce the amount of, or cancel entirely, dividends and/or distributions paid in the future. As a result, the HADD figure will likely be higher, and in some cases significantly higher, than the actual distribution rate achieved by the trust.

Principal Investment Strategy
The Trust aims to provide a portfolio of securities that the Sponsor believes includes large, high quality companies from around the world. Under normal circumstances, the Trust will invest at least 80% of the value of its assets in securities issued by non-U.S. blue chip companies. A blue chip company is a nationally recognized company with a long-term reputation for quality, reliability and financial strength. The Trust will invest in common stocks, American Depositary Receipts and New York Registry Shares. New York Registry Shares are created by a U.S. registrar so that securities of companies incorporated in the Netherlands may be traded on a U.S. exchange. The Trust intends to invest in large-capitalization securities but may also invest in mid-capitalization securities.
Under normal circumstances, at least three different countries around the world will be represented in the Trust’s portfolio, including emerging market countries. The Trust intends to invest primarily in U.S.-listed foreign securities and depositary receipts of foreign issuers, but may also invest in foreign securities listed on a foreign exchange. A company is considered to be a non-U.S. company if the company meets one or more of the following criteria:
The Sponsor has selected Aberdeen Standard Investments Inc. (“abrdn”) as portfolio consultant. abrdn will suggest securities for the portfolio that it believes possess the potential to achieve the Trust’s investment objective and follow the Trust’s principal investment strategies. As a result of this strategy, the Trust invests significantly in the consumer products and information technology sectors, and the Trust is concentrated in securities issued by companies located in Europe and Asia.
The Trust’s portfolio is constructed by the Sponsor, with the assistance of abrdn, using the methodology described below:
The Trust uses a fundamental, bottom-up equity investment process, which is based on first-hand research and disciplined company evaluation. Securities are identified for their long-term, fundamental value. The stock selection process contains two filters, first quality and then price.
In the quality filter, each of the following five factors are assessed for all companies:
Examples of environmental, social and governance factors considered include, but are not limited to, carbon emissions, climate risks, labor management, employee safety and corporate governance. The specific factors considered may vary depending on the type of company being evaluated.
In the price filter, the value of a company is assessed by reference to financial ratios. Based upon the financial ratios, an estimate of the value of the company relative to its market price and the valuations of other potential investments is calculated.
