Principal Investment Strategy
The Trust will invest in a portfolio of securities of 30 companies domiciled in developing nations with a primary objective of providing dividend income and a secondary objective of capital gains.
The Sponsor, with the assistance of Guggenheim Partners Investment Management, LLC ("GPIM"), an affiliate of the Sponsor and Guggenheim Partners, LLC, has selected the securities to be included in the Trust’s portfolio. The Sponsor and GPIM believe that companies that distribute significant dividends on a consistent basis demonstrate strong financial strength and positive performance relative to their peers.
See “Investment Policies” in Part B of the prospectus for more information.
In constructing the Trust’s portfolio, 30 securities were selected based on the following rules-based criteria:
1. Initial Universe: Start with an initial universe of securities which meet the following requirements:
2. Rank on Fundamentals: Rank every company identified in the initial universe against other companies in the same sector, as defined by the FactSet Industry Classification System, along each of the following reported financial metrics.
Each ranking is determined as of the Security Selection Date using the most recently reported information and uses a scale of 1 through 10 (1 representing the highest scoring 10% in the sector and 10 representing the lowest scoring 10% in the sector):
Each financial metric will create a separate score so that every company will have three scores. These three scores are averaged together to create one composite score for a company. This composite score is used to rank the companies next step in order to determine the sub-universe of securities.
3. Define Sub-Universe: Reduce the initial universe of securities to a sub-universe that meets the following requirements, with each requirement being applied independently to the initial universe from the other requirements in this step, as of the Security Selection Date:
4. Selection: Select from the sub-universe the thirty top dividend yielding securities (with a higher ranking given to the largest market capitalization securities if dividend yields are equal or zero), equally weighted as of the Security Selection Date, which adhere to following portfolio limits as of the Security Selection Date:
Once an investment limitation has been reached, additional securities of that type will not be included in the Trust and the next highest yielding security will be used.
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.
