Principal Investment Strategy
The Trust seeks to provide a high level of income with the potential for capital appreciation by investing in dividend-paying stocks of U.S. companies along with shares of exchange-traded funds (“ETFs”) that invest 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 common stocks in the Trust are selected according to the quantitativelyselected US High Dividend Strategy described below. Certain of the common stocks included in the Trust portfolio are issued by real estate investment trusts (“REITs”). Please see “Principal Risks” and “Investment Risks” for additional information concerning the risks associated with investing in REITs.
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 according to the US High Dividend Strategy will constitute approximately 50% of the Trust portfolio.
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 debt securities rated investment grade through below-investment grade. High-yield, belowinvestment grade securities or “junk” bonds are considered to be speculative and are subject to greater market and credit risks than investment-grade securities. Please see “Principal Risks” and “Investment Risks” for additional information concerning the risks associated with investing in high-yield securities or “junk” bonds.
The fixed-income ETFs included in the portfolio will invest in debt securities with shortterm, medium-term and long-term maturities. Typically fixed-income securities with longer periods before maturity are more sensitive to interest rate changes. See “Principal Risks” and “Investment Risks” for additional information concerning the risks associated with investing in fixed-income securities of short, medium and long-term durations.
Finally, the fixed-income ETFs included in the portfolio will invest in debt securities issued by foreign companies, including companies located in emerging markets. See “Principal Risks” and “Investment Risks” for additional information concerning the risks associated with investing in securities of foreign issuers, including issuers located in emerging markets.
See “Investment Policies” in Part B of the prospectus for more information.
US High Dividend Strategy
Approximately 50% of the Trust portfolio will constitute the 25 common stocks selected according to the US High Dividend Strategy. These stocks were selected six business days prior to the initial date of deposit (the "Inception Date") using the security selection rules described below.
Security Selection Rules:
In constructing the common stock component of the Trust's portfolio, 25 securities will be selected based on the following fundamentally based quantitative criteria:
Please note that due to the fluctuating nature of security prices, the weighting of an individual security or sector in the Trust portfolio may change after the portfolio selection date.
Fixed-Income Exchange-Traded Funds
Approximately 50% of the Trust portfolio will constitute ETFs that invest in fixed-income securities. The Sponsor, with the assistance of GPIM, has selected fixed-income ETFs believed to have the best potential for current income. 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, the expense ratio and the overlap of the underlying fixed-income securities held by the ETFs.
The S&P Composite 1500 Index combines three leading indices - S&P 500, S&P MidCap 400 and S&P SmallCap 600 - to form an investable benchmark of the U.S. equity market. Covering approximately 85% of the U.S. market capitalization, S&P Composite 1500 offers investors an index with the familiar characteristics of the S&P 500 but with broader market exposure.
The S&P 1000 Index combines two leading indices, the S&P MidCap 400 and the S&P SmallCap 600, to form an investable benchmark for the mid-small cap universe of the U.S. equity market. The S&P 1000 Index measures the performance of widely available and highly liquid stocks. This makes the S&P 1000 the appropriate midsmall cap index for investors seeking to replicate the performance of the U.S. equity market or serve as a benchmark for a universe of tradable stocks. Indexes are unmanaged and it is not possible to invest directly in an index.
