The Core Four 60/40 Retirement Portfolio, Series 3 ("Trust") seeks current income as the primary objective, with the potential for capital appreciation as a secondary objective.
Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate with changes in market conditions. Investors' units, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.
This information does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of any offer to buy: nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state where the offer, solicitation, or sale is not permitted.
Principal Investment Strategy
The Trust seeks to provide current income with the potential for capital appreciation by investing in dividend-paying stocks of U.S.-listed companies along with shares of exchange-traded funds (“ETFs”) that invest substantially all of their assets in fixed-income securities.
The Trust is comprised of four sleeves, each with a unique strategy to address the needs or concerns of individuals near or in retirement: i) income, ii) growth of income, iii) stability of principal, and iv) capital appreciation. As of the security selection date, the Trust portfolio is constructed with an asset allocation of 60% equity securities and 40% ETFs substantially invested in fixed income securities.
The Sponsor has selected the securities to be included in the Trust’s portfolio. The U.S.-listed common stocks held by the Trust may include the common stocks of U.S. and non-U.S. companies of small-, mid- or large-capitalizations. Such securities may be issued by companies located in emerging markets. Certain of the common stocks included in the Trust portfolio are issued by real estate investment Trusts (“REITs”).
The fixed-income ETFs included in the portfolio invest in a wide range of debt securities rated investment-grade through below investment-grade. 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. Additionally, the fixed-income ETFs may invest in debt securities with any maturity term. The fixed-income ETFs included in the portfolio may also invest in debt securities issued by foreign companies, including companies located in emerging markets.
Higher-Yielding Income Sleeve
Approximately 30% of the Trust portfolio will constitute securities that seek to deliver an above average income stream. The Sponsor will select higher dividend-yielding, U.S.-listed equity securities (approximately 20% of the Trust portfolio) and higher yielding fixed income asset classes accessed through ETFs (approximately 10% of the Trust portfolio).
Equity Income Security Selection:
Fixed Income ETF Security Selection:
The Sponsor focuses on macro and sector views when selecting ETFs that it believes hold higher yielding fixed income asset classes (i.e., high yield corporate bonds, floating rate bonds, emerging market debt, convertible securities, preferred securities, etc.). The Sponsor selects ETFs based upon criteria including, but not limited to:
Initial individual ETF weightings will range between approximately 2% and 5% of the Trust portfolio.
Dividend Growth Sleeve
Approximately 20% of the Trust portfolio will hold U.S.-listed equity companies that have shown the historical ability and willingness to increase their dividend distributions annually for a minimum number of years, described below.
Principal Stability Sleeve
Approximately 30% of the Trust portfolio seeks to reduce potential volatility of the overall portfolio by investing in ETFs that hold at least 80% of their portfolios in investment grade fixed-income securities. The Sponsor focuses on macro and sector views when selecting these ETFs. The Sponsor selects ETFs based upon criteria including, but not limited to:
Initial individual ETF weightings will range between 2% and 10% of the Trust portfolio.
Capital Appreciation Sleeve
Approximately 20% of the Trust portfolio seeks to provide growth of principal by investing in large-cap, U.S.-listed growth companies.
Securities in the final portfolio will be cross-referenced against other sleeves to ensure no security overlap.
