The National Municipal Trust seeks to provide high current income and the potential for capital appreciation.
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 contains common stocks of closed-end investment companies (“closed-end funds”), the majority of which contain portfolios that are concentrated in tax-free municipal bonds, which are rated investment-grade (“Baa” or “BBB” or better) as determined by Moody’s Investor Services (“Moody’s”) and Standard & Poor’s, a division of The McGraw- Hill Companies, Inc. (“Standard & Poor’s”), respectively.
Income may be subject to state and local taxes as well as the alternative minimum tax. Capital gains, if any, may also be subject to tax. To the extent that any of the underlying closed-end funds invest in anything other than municipal securities, investors may be subject to federal taxes as well.
There is increased volatility associated with investing in leveraged funds. Historically, closed-end funds often trade at a discount to their net asset value.
See “Description of Ratings” in Part B of the prospectus for additional information regarding the ratings criteria.
The Sponsor has selected for the portfolio closed-end funds believed to have the best potential to achieve the Trust’s investment objective. The Trust seeks to provide monthly income that is exempt from federal income taxes by investing in closed-end funds that invest in tax-free municipal bonds. Municipal bonds generally offer investors the potential for stable tax-free income. However, a portion of the income may be subject to the alternative minimum tax.
When selecting closed-end funds for inclusion in this portfolio the Sponsor looks at numerous factors. These factors include, but are not limited to:
Risks and Other Considerations
As with all investments, you may lose some or all of your investment in the Trust. The Trust also might not perform as well as you expect. This can happen for reasons such as these:
Federal Tax. Some dividends on the securities in the Trust may be designated as “capital gains dividends” for federal and state tax purposes, generally taxable to you as longterm capital gains. Some dividends on the securities in the Trust may qualify as “exempt-interest dividends,” which generally are excluded from your gross income for federal income tax purposes. Some or all of the exempt-interest dividends, however, may be taken into account in determining your alternative minimum tax, and may have other tax consequences (e.g., they may affect the amount of your social security benefits that are taxed). Other dividends on the securities in the Trust will generally be taxable to you as ordinary income.
