The HADD of the securities included in the Trust is for illustrative purposes only and is not indicative of the Trust’s distribution rate. The HADD is the weighted average of the trailing twelve-month distributions paid by the securities included in the portfolio and is reduced to account for the effects of fees and expenses, which will be incurred when investing in the Trust. The HADD 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.

Principal Investment Strategy
Under normal circumstances, the Trust will invest at least 80% of the value of its assets in common shares of closed-end investment companies (“Closed-End Funds”) that are considered to be covered call funds and/or income funds. The Closed-End Funds may contain portfolios that are concentrated in highyield or “junk” bonds. The Sponsor, through proprietary research, will strive to select Closed- End Funds featuring the potential for current income, diversification and overall liquidity.
What is a Covered Call Writing Strategy?
Call options are contracts representing the right to purchase a common stock at a specified price, known as the “strike price,” at a specified future date, known as the “expiration date,” in exchange for an option premium.
Certain Closed-End Funds held within the Trust’s portfolio employ an option strategy of writing/selling covered call options on the majority of the common stocks held within the underlying Closed-End Funds. Covered call option writing is designed to produce income from option premiums and offset a portion of a market decline in the underlying common stock. In short, a covered call strategy may provide limited downside protection of the “covered” stock in exchange for some of the upside appreciation potential.
The Sponsor has selected for the portfolio Closed-End Funds believed to have the best potential to achieve the Trust’s investment objective. The Closed-End Funds’ portfolios consist primarily of covered call securities and/or income producing securities, including equity securities, high-yield bonds, convertible securities and preferred securities. Such income producing securities may be securities of foreign companies, including companies located emerging markets.
As of the Trust’s initial date of deposit (the “Inception Date”), 100% of the Trust’s portfolio is invested in securities of Closed-End Funds with portfolios that consist primarily of covered call securities and/or income producing securities.
When selecting Closed-End Funds for inclusion in this portfolio the Sponsor looks at numerous factors. These factors include, but are not limited to:
Some of the securities held by the Closed- End Funds may be high-yield bonds. High-yield or “junk” bonds, the generic names for bonds rated below investment-grade, are frequently issued by corporations in the growth stage of their development or by established companies who are highly leveraged or whose operations or industries are depressed. Obligations rated below investment-grade should be considered speculative as these ratings indicate a quality of less than investment-grade. Because high-yield bonds are generally subordinated obligations and are perceived by investors to be riskier than higher rated securities, their prices tend to fluctuate more than higher rated securities and are affected by short-term credit developments to a greater degree.
Risks and Other Considerations
As with all investments, you may lose some or all of your investment in the Trust. No assurance can be given that the Trust’s investment objective will be achieved. The Trust also might not perform as well as you expect. This can happen for reasons such as these:
