Principal Investment Strategy
The Trust seeks to provide current income with the potential for capital appreciation by investing in dividend-paying stocks of U.S.-listed 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 common stocks in the Trust are selected according to the quantitatively-selected US High Dividend Strategy described below. The U.S.-listed common stocks held the Trust may include the common stocks of U.S. and non-U.S. companies of small-, mid- or large-capitalizations. Certain of the common stocks included in the Trust portfolio are issued by real estate investment Trusts (“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, 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 also invest in debt securities issued by foreign companies, including companies located in emerging markets.
US High Dividend Strategy Approximately 50% of the Trust portfolio will constitute the common stocks selected according to the US High Dividend Strategy. These stocks were selected seven business days prior to the initial date of deposit (the “Security Selection Date”) using the security selection rules described below. Security Selection Rules: In constructing the common stock component of the Trust’s portfolio, 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 Security Selection Date.
Fixed-Income Exchange-Traded Funds
Approximately 50% of the Trust portfolio will constitute ETFs that invest substantially all of their assets 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.

ETFs are investment pools that hold securities. ETFs provide an efficient and relatively simple way to invest in that they offer investors the opportunity to buy and sell an entire basket of securities with a single transaction throughout the trading day. ETFs are often built like an index fund, but trade like a stock on an exchange. ETFs generally offer advantages similar to those found in index funds such as low operating costs, performance designed to track an index, the potential for high tax efficiency and consistent investment strategies. Unlike conventional mutual funds, ETFs normally issue and redeem shares on a continuous basis at their net asset value in large specified blocks of shares, known as “creation units.” Market makers, large investors and institutions deal in creation units. The Trust will buy shares of the ETF on the exchanges and will incur brokerage costs.INDEX DEFINITION: The Russell 3000® Index (“Index”) measures the performance of the largest 3000 U.S. companies representing approximately 98% of the investable equity market. The Index is unmanaged and it is not possible to invest directly in the Index.
