Principal Investment Strategy

Under normal circumstances, the Trust will invest at least 80% of the value of its assets in securities of blue chip multinational companies. A blue chip company is a nationally recognized company with a long-term reputation for quality, reliability and financial strength. A multinational company is a company that owns or controls the production of goods or services in at least one country other than its home country. The Trust will invest in a portfolio of common stocks of blue chip multinational companies that derive a growing portion of their revenue from emerging market countries. This may provide investors with a way to gain exposure to this potential growth without investing directly in the local foreign markets. The U.S.-listed common stocks held by the Trust may include the common stocks of U.S. and non-U.S. companies. The Trust may also invest in real estate investment trusts.

As a result of this strategy, the Trust is concentrated in the information technology sector and invests significantly in the consumer products sector.

As of the date of deposit, this Trust will hold a significant amount of its assets in the common stocks of multinational U.S. companies of largecapitalizations.

Selection Criteria

The Trust intends to invest in companies that are recognized leaders in their particular industries. The Sponsor has selected securities for the portfolio that have the potential to achieve the Trust’s investment objective. The Sponsor has entered into a research partnership with FactSet Research Systems Inc. (“FactSet”). FactSet starts with the securities in the Russell Top 200® Index and has identified a universe of stocks with multinational profiles that derive a large portion of their revenues from emerging market countries. As of April 28, 2023, the Russell Top 200® Index include securities with market capitalization ranges from approximately $37.0 billion to $2.68 trillion. The multinational companies have a strong business presence in foreign and emerging market countries but may not be incorporated or headquartered in foreign or emerging market countries. FactSet uses FactSet GeoRev, a proprietary database, to identify these companies. The Sponsor then selects a final portfolio based on, but not limited to, the following factors:

  • Profitability & Profit Growth. Profitable firms and those with consistent earnings per share growth over the last one to four years.
  • Revenue Growth. Growing sales over the last one to four years.
  • Growth in Operating Margins.
  • Earnings Yield. Favor securities with a higher earnings yield.
  • Return on Equity. Positive and growing ROE over the last one to four years.
  • Gross Dividend Growth. Companies that have increased dividends over the last three years.
  • Share Price Trends & Volatility. Focus on strong returns relative to the initial universe and avoid stocks with abnormally high volatility.

Risks and Other Considerations

As with all investments, you may lose some or all of your investment in the Trust. No assurance can be given that the Trust’s investment objective will be achieved. The Trust also might not perform as well as you expect. This can happen for reasons such as these:

  • Securities prices can be volatile. The value of your investment may fall over time. Market value fluctuates in response to various factors. These can include stock market movements, purchases or sales of securities by the Trust, government policies, litigation, and changes in interest rates, inflation, the financial condition of the securities’ issuer or even perceptions of the issuer. Changes in legal, political, regulatory, tax and economic conditions may cause fluctuations in markets and securities prices, which could negatively impact the value of the Trust. Additionally, events such war, terrorism, natural and environmental disasters and the spread of infectious illnesses or other public health emergencies may adversely affect the economy, various markets and issuers. An outbreak of a novel form of coronavirus disease (“COVID-19”) was first detected in December 2019 and rapidly spread around the globe leading the World Health Organization to declare the COVID-19 outbreak a pandemic in March 2020 and resulting in major disruptions to economies and markets around the world. The complete economic impacts of COVID-19 are not yet fully known. The COVID-19 pandemic, or any future public health crisis, is impossible to predict and could result in adverse market conditions which may negatively impact the performance of the Trust and the Trust's ability to achieve its investment objectives. Units of the Trust are not deposits of any bank and are not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency.
  • Share prices or dividend rates on the securities in the Trust may decline during the life of the Trust. There is no guarantee that share prices of the securities in the Trust will not decline and that the issuers of the securities will declare dividends in the future and, if declared, whether they will remain at current levels or increase over time.
  • The Trust invests in U.S.-listed foreign securities and in companies that do significant business in foreign countries. Securities of foreign issuers present risks beyond those of domestic securities. The Trust’s investment in companies that do significant business in foreign countries presents additional risk. Securities of such companies are subject to the risk that foreign countries may be more volatile than the United States due to such factors as adverse economic, currency, political, social or regulatory developments in a country, including government seizure of assets, excessive taxation, limitations on the use or transfer of assets, the lack of liquidity or regulatory controls with respect to certain industries or differing legal and/or accounting standards.
  • The Trust includes securities issued by companies that do significant business in countries considered to be emerging markets. The performance of the securities included in the Trust may be dependent, in part, on the growth or decline of emerging market countries. Emerging markets are generally defined as countries with low per capita income in the initial stages of their industrialization cycles. Risks of investing in companies that do significant business in developing or emerging countries include, among other concerns, political uncertainties and dependence on international trade and development assistance. Companies that do significant business in emerging market countries may be exposed to greater volatility and market risk. In addition, the economies of emerging market countries may be extremely volatile and subject to increased risks.
  • The Trust is concentrated in the information technology sector. As a result, the factors that impact the information technology sector will likely have a greater effect on this Trust than on a more broadly diversified Trust. Companies involved in this sector must contend with rapid changes in technology, intense competition, government regulation and the rapid obsolescence of products and services. Furthermore, sector predictions may not materialize and the companies selected for the Trust may not represent the entire sector and may not participate in the overall sector growth.
  • The Trust invests significantly in the consumer products sector. As a result, the factors that impact the consumer products sector will likely have a greater effect on this trust than on a more broadly diversified trust. General risks of companies in the consumer products sector include cyclicality of revenues and earnings, economic recession, currency fluctuations, changing consumer tastes, extensive competition, product liability litigation and increased government regulation. A weak economy and its effect on consumer spending would adversely affect companies in the consumer products sector.
  • The Trust may be susceptible to potential risks through breaches in cybersecurity. A breach in cybersecurity refers to both intentional and unintentional events that may cause the Trust to lose proprietary information, suffer data corruption or lose operational capacity. Such events could cause the Sponsor of the Trust to incur regulatory penalties, reputational damage, additional compliance costs associated with corrective measures and/or financial loss. In addition, cybersecurity breaches of the Trust’s third-party service providers, or issuers in which the Trust invests, can also subject the Trust to many of the same risks associated with direct cybersecurity breaches.
  • The Trust is subject to risks arising from various operational factors and their service providers. Operational factors include, but not limited to, human error, processing and communication errors, errors of the Trust’s service providers, counterparties or other third-parties, failed or inadequate processes and technology or systems failures. Additionally, the Trust may be subject to the risk that a service provider may not be willing or able to perform their duties as required or contemplated by their agreements with the Trust. Although the Trust seeks to reduce these operational risks through controls and procedures, there is no way to completely protect against such risks.
  • Inflation may lead to a decrease in the value of assets or income from investments.
  • The Sponsor does not actively manage the portfolio. The Trust will generally hold, and may, when creating additional units, continue to buy, the same securities even though a security’s outlook, market value or yield may have changed.
