The Strategic Income Trust seeks to provide current income and the potential for capital appreciation by investing in common stocks of closed-end investment companies (“Closed-End Funds”) that are considered to be income funds.
What is the Strategic Income Trust?
The Strategic Income Trust is a strategic allocation by Claymore of various income-oriented Closed-End Funds containing securities of different asset classes. These may include, but are not limited to:
Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate with changes in market conditions. Investors' units, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.
This information does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of any offer to buy: nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state where the offer, solicitation, or sale is not permitted.
Principal Investment Strategy
The Trust will invest 100% of its assets in closed-end funds that are considered to be income funds. Claymore, through proprietary research and strategic alliances, will strive to select Closed-End Funds featuring the potential for current income, diversification and overall liquidity.
The sponsor has selected for the portfolio Closed-End Funds believed to have the best potential to achieve the trust’s investment objective. The Closed-End Funds’ portfolios consist primarily of income-producing securities, including: high-yield bonds, convertible bonds, preferred securities, REITs, corporate bonds, government bonds, international bonds and equities.
When selecting Closed-End Funds for inclusion in the portfolio the sponsor looks at numerous factors. These factors include, but are not limited to:
Investment Objective. The sponsor favors funds that have a clear investment objective in line with the trust’s objective and, based upon a review of publicly available information, appear to be maintaining it.
Premium/Discount. The sponsor favors funds that are trading at a discount relative to their peers and relative to their long-term average.
Consistent Dividend. The sponsor favors funds that have a history of paying a consistent and competitive dividend which, in the opinion of the sponsor, can be maintained.
Performance. The sponsor favors funds that have a history of strong relative performance (based on market price and net asset value) when compared to their peers and an applicable index.
