Historical Annual Dividend Distribution*

Per Unit $0.1209
Rate -
Rate Fee Based -

* 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

Under normal circumstances, the Trust invests at least 80% of the value of its assets in equity securities. The Trust employs a quantamental investment strategy to select a portfolio of core equity securities. Core equity securities are securities that the Sponsor believes are central investments for an equity portfolio. 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 Trust may invest in U.S.-listed common stocks of any market capitalization. The U.S.-listed common stocks may include U.S.-listed foreign securities, including the securities of issuers located in emerging markets. Additionally, the Trust may invest in real estate investment Trusts.

As a result of this strategy, the Trust invests significantly in the information technology sector.

Selection Criteria

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 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: 1) a security’s net debt/earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA); 2) return on equity; and 3) 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.

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 invests significantly 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 includes securities issued by mid-capitalization companies. These securities customarily involve more investment risk than securities of large-capitalization companies. 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.

See “Investment Risks” in Part A of the prospectus and “Risk Factors” in Part B of the prospectus for additional information.

Please see the Trust prospectus for more complete risk information.
