* 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 seeks to provide current income with the potential for capital appreciation by investing in dividend-paying stocks of global companies along with shares of exchange-traded funds (“ETFs”) that invest substantially all of their assets in fixed-income securities.
The Sponsor, with the assistance of Guggenheim Partners Investment Management, LLC (“GPIM”), an affiliate of Guggenheim Partners, LLC, has selected the securities to be included in the Trust’s portfolio. The Trust portfolio will invest a substantial amount of its assets, either directly or indirectly through its investment in ETFs, in securities from at least three different countries, as defined by Russell Investments. The Trust will, as of the initial date of deposit, invest at least 40% of its assets directly or indirectly in the securities of non-U.S. companies located in at least three different countries, as defined by Russell Investments.
The Sponsor and GPIM believe that companies that distribute significant dividends on a consistent basis generally demonstrate strong financial strength and positive performance relative to their peers. The common stocks selected will constitute approximately 50% of the Trust portfolio. These common stocks may be issued by small-, mid- and large-capitalization companies and by real estate investment Trusts.
Shares of ETFs that invest substantially all of their assets in fixed-income securities will make up the remaining 50% of the Trust portfolio. The fixed-income ETFs included in the portfolio invest in a wide range of both domestic and international debt securities rated investment-grade through below investmentgrade. 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.
The fixed-income ETFs included in the portfolio will invest in debt securities with short-term, medium-term and long-term maturities. Typically fixed-income securities with longer periods before maturity are more sensitive to interest rate changes.
Finally, the fixed-income ETFs included in the portfolio will invest in debt securities issued by foreign companies, including companies located in emerging markets. The Trust may invest in fixed-income ETFs that invest in municipal bonds and mortgagebacked securities.
United States Equity Strategy
Approximately 25% of the Trust portfolio will constitute U.S. equity common stocks selected using a disciplined process that includes both quantitative screening and qualitative analysis. The Sponsor selects U.S. companies that it believes should be core holdings of a diversified dividend-paying portfolio. The Sponsor begins with a universe of all dividend paying companies in the United States as of the date of the security selection. The Sponsor then selects the final portfolio by performing quantitative and qualitative screening, which is primarily based on, but not limited to dividend growth, dividend coverage and profitability.
International Equity Strategy
Approximately 25% of the Trust portfolio will constitute common stocks selected according to a quantitative dividend strategy. These stocks will be dividend paying American Depositary Receipt (“ADR”)/Global Depositary Receipt (“GDR”)/New York Registry Share equity securities or U.S.-listed common stocks of foreign companies representing both developed and emerging markets.
Fixed-Income Exchange-Traded Funds
Approximately 50% of the Trust portfolio will constitute ETFs that invest substantially all of their assets in both domestic and international fixed-income securities. The Sponsor, with the assistance of GPIM, has selected fixed-income ETFs believed to have the best potential for current income and total return. When selecting the ETFs for the Trust, the Sponsor considers a number of factors, including but not limited to, the size, liquidity and daily trading volume, the current dividend yield, the strategy and investment objective, the fixed-income securities held by the ETF including their durations and credit exposure, the expense ratio and the overlap of the underlying fixed-income securities held by the ETFs.
