Principal Investment Strategy
Under normal circumstances, the Trust will invest at least 80% of the value of its assets in medical science companies that the Sponsor believes are innovative. A company will be deemed to be a medical science company if, at the time an investment is made in the company, 50% or more of such company’s sales, earnings or assets arise from or are dedicated to healthcare products or services or medical technology activities. Innovative medical science companies are companies considered to be developing novel products to address medical needs. The Trust seeks to select innovative medical science companies that may benefit from one or more of the trends positively impacting the health care industry. The U.S. listed common stocks held by the Trust may include the common stocks of U.S. and non-U.S. companies. The foreign securities that may be held by the Trust may include American Depositary Receipts (“ADRs”). The Trust may invest in companies of any market capitalization.
The Sponsor has partnered with Tekla Capital Management, LLC (“Tekla”) as portfolio consultant. Tekla will suggest securities for the portfolio that it believes possess the potential to achieve the Trust’s investment objective.
The Sponsor, with the assistance of Tekla, selects companies that it believes are innovative medical science companies that may benefit from one or more of the trends positively impacting the health care industry. The selection process begins with the universe of health care companies. The universe is then reduced by considering factors such as, but not limited to:
