Principal Investment Strategy
Under normal circumstances, the Trust invests at least 80% of the value of its assets in securities that are selected using a Quantamental investment strategy. Quantamental investing is the combination of quantitative and fundamental investment techniques. Quantitative investment techniques use objective financial data to create both risk and return models. Fundamental investment techniques use both qualitative and quantitative information to evaluate a security’s valuation and investment risks. The Trust will utilize quantitative models to rank securities by various quality measures and will select securities that are attractive on a fundamental basis. By applying this investment strategy, the Sponsor, with the assistance of Wells Fargo Securities Equity Research Team, will select a portfolio of U.S.-listed common stocks that it believes may be able to deliver an attractive risk-adjusted return compared to the broader securities markets. The U.S.-listed common stocks may include the securities of U.S.-listed foreign securities. The Trust may invest in real estate investment Trusts.
The selection process for the final portfolio integrates quantitative investment techniques along with bottom-up fundamental stock selection research to seek to create an attractive risk-adjusted portfolio. The portfolio is selected by applying the following criteria:
• The starting universe of approximately 100 securities consists of securities that are covered by the Wells Fargo Securities Equity Research Team and that are rated as outperform.
• From this starting universe, remaining securities must have a market capitalization of $3 billion or more.
• Next, the remaining securities are screened for positive quality factors, which include analyzing a security’s net debt; earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization; return on equity and net profit margins. Securities that are selected must qualify for the top two quintiles of the Wells Fargo Securities Equity Research Team’s Quality factor ranking.
• Next, securities that are not rated in the top two quintiles of the Wells Fargo Securities Equity Research Team’s Momentum factor ranking are eliminated.
• The remaining securities then undergo a quantitative analysis based upon market sector, market capitalization and market volatility. The market volatility measurement includes a number of different time horizons, including but not limited to 12-month realized volatility.
• The final portfolio will include approximately 50 securities.
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. 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.
• Securities selected according to this strategy may not perform as intended. The Trust is exposed to additional risk due to its policy of investing in accordance with an investment strategy. Although the Trust’s investment strategy is designed to achieve the Trust’s investment objective, the strategy may not prove to be successful. The investment decisions may not produce the intended results and there is no guarantee that the investment objective will be achieved.
• The Trust includes securities issued by small-capitalization and mid-capitalization companies. These securities customarily involve more investment risk than securities of large-capitalization companies. Small-capitalization and mid-capitalization companies may have limited product lines, markets or financial resources and may be more vulnerable to adverse general market or economic developments.
• 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.
• 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.
