* 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 common stocks of U.S. companies that the Sponsor believes are lower volatility securities. The Trust applies a series of screens to determine the final portfolio, including measuring the volatility of a security by using the standard deviation of daily returns for the previous trailing year for such a security and selecting the securities with the lowest volatility. The Trust seeks total returns that may exceed the S&P 500 Index’s market level in certain risk-adjusted return metrics. The Sponsor, with the assistance of Guggenheim Partners Investment Management, LLC (“GPIM”), an affiliate of Guggenheim Partners, LLC, has selected the securities to be included in the Trust’s portfolio. As a result of this strategy, the Trust is concentrated in the consumer products sector and invests significantly in the health care and utilities sectors.
The Trust’s portfolio was constructed and the securities were selected on July 27, 2023 (the “Security Selection Date”) using the Security Selection Rules outlined below. Security Selection Rules: In constructing the Trust’s portfolio, securities were selected based on the following rules-based criteria.
Please note that due to the fluctuating nature of security prices, the weighting of an individual security, sector or industry in the Trust portfolio may change after the Security Selection Date.
INDEX DEFINITIONS: The S&P 500® Index is a capitalization-weighted index of 500 companies (the “Index”). The Index is regarded as a gauge of large-capitalization U.S. equities and covers approximately 80% of available market capitalization. Indices are statistical composites and their returns do not include payment of any sales charges or fees an investor would pay to purchase the securities they represent. Such costs would lower performance. The Index is unmanaged and it is not possible to invest directly in the Index. The historical performance of the Index is shown for illustrative purposes only; it is not meant to forecast, imply or guarantee the future performance of any particular investment or the trust, which will vary. Securities in which the trust invests may differ from those in the Index. The trust will not try to replicate the performance of these indices and will not necessarily invest any substantial portion of its assets in securities in the Index. There is no guarantee that the perceived intrinsic value of a security will be realized.
