* 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 will invest in common shares of closed-end investment companies (“Closed-End Funds”) that are currently trading at a greater percentage discount to their net asset value (“NAV Discount”) than their historical NAV Discount. The Trust seeks capital appreciation by selecting Closed-End Funds that the Sponsor believes have the potential to narrow the gap between their current NAV Discount and their historical NAV Discount. The Trust portfolio will include a variety of Closed-End Funds, including general equity funds, taxable fixed-income funds, municipal funds and balanced/multi-asset funds. The Closed-End Funds will invest in securities of a variety of asset classes. These asset classes may include, but are not limited to:
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 according to the selection criteria described below.
The security selection process begins by identifying the entire universe of Closed-End Funds listed on a U.S. public securities exchange as provided by Morningstar. As of the security selection date, each Closed-End Fund is then ranked by:
Closed-End Funds with better ranks will be considered more strongly for inclusion in the Trust, subject to the Sponsor’s discretion. In addition, the Trust will be subject to the following constraints (as measured on the security selection date). For the constraints that reference Closed-End Fund classifications, the “Asset Category” and “Classification” attributes are sourced from Morningstar Traded Fund Center (formerly FundData).
Final Trust selections will be influenced by the rankings and constraints described above as well as the Sponsor’s outlook for an individual fund and/or Closed-End Fund marketplace. Closed-End Funds selected for the portfolio will be equally-weighted as of the selection date. 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 selection date.
Some of the securities held by the Closed- End Funds are income-producing securities, including corporate bonds, preferred securities and high-yield bonds. These securities held by the Closed-End Funds may have fixed or floating rates. High-yield or “junk” bonds, the generic names for bonds rated below investment-grade, are frequently issued by corporations in the growth stage of their development or by established companies who are highly leveraged or whose operations or industries are depressed. Obligations rated below investment-grade should be considered speculative as these ratings indicate a quality of less than investment-grade. Because high-yield bonds are generally subordinated obligations and are perceived by investors to be riskier than higher rated securities, their prices tend to fluctuate more than higher rated securities and are affected by short-term credit developments to a greater degree.
