* 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 U.S.- listed companies along with shares of exchangetraded 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. The non-U.S. companies may be companies located in emerging markets. 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 may invest in all types of fixed-income securities, including but not limited to mortgage-backed securities, senior loans, municipal bonds, Treasury bonds, preferred securities and floating rate securities. 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 investmentgrade securities.
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.
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 on April 13, 2020 (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.
