Principal Investment Strategy
Under normal circumstances, the Trust will invest at least 80% of the value of its assets in a combination of common shares of closed-end investment companies (“Closed-End Funds”) that invest substantially all of their assets in various income-oriented securities of different asset classes and shares of an exchange-traded fund (“ETF”) that invests substantially all of its assets in short-term U.S. Treasury bonds. The Sponsor selects certain Closed-End Funds for the Trust that hold limited duration securities. In general, limited duration fixed-income securities may provide investors with lower interest rate sensitivity than longer duration securities. The duration of a bond is a measure of its price sensitivity to changes in interest rates based on the weighted average term to maturity of its interest and principal cash flows. The Sponsor selects Closed-End Funds that hold securities that have durations of five years or less, however, the average duration of the securities held by the Closed-End Funds may be longer at any time depending on market conditions. By including Closed-End Funds that invest in limited duration fixed-income securities, the Sponsor seeks to lower the overall volatility of the Trust portfolio in most interest rate environments.
The asset classes in which the Closed-End Funds invest may include, but are not limited to:
