1 The "Inception Bid Price" represents the net asset value of one unit of a trust excluding any deferred sales charge, if applicable.
2 The "Maturity Price" represents the proceeds per unit received by unitholders upon termination of the trust.
3 The Historical Annual Dividend Distribution is as of the date of deposit and subject to change. The amount of distributions paid by the Trust’s securities may be lower or greater than the above-stated amount 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. Fees and expenses of the Trust may vary as a result of a variety of factors including the Trust’s size, redemption activity, brokerage and other transaction costs and extraordinary expenses.
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.
The Sponsor, with the assistance of Guggenheim Partners Investment Management, LLC ("GPIM"), has selected a portfolio of ETFs believed to have the best potential for capital appreciation and the potential for current income. As of the Trust’s initial date of deposit (the “Inception Date”), the asset classes represented in the portfolio will be approximately weighted as follows: equity funds, 60%; commodity funds, 20%; and fixed-income funds, 20%.
When selecting the ETFs for the Trust, the Sponsor considers a number of factors including, but not limited to, the size, liquidity and daily trading volume, the current dividend yield, the strategy and investment objective, the securities held by the ETF, the expense ratio and limitations on the overlap of the underlying securities held by the ETFs.

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.
- Due to the current state of the economy, the value of the securities held by the Trust may be subject to steep declines or increased volatility due to changes in performance or perception of the issuers. Starting in December 2007, economic activity declined across all sectors of the economy, and the United States experienced increased unemployment. The economic crisis affected the global economy with European and Asian markets also suffering historic losses. Extraordinary steps have been taken by the governments of several leading countries to combat the economic crisis; however, the impact of these measures is not yet fully known and cannot be predicted.
- Share prices or dividend rates on the securities in the Trust may decline during the life of the Trust. There is no guarantee 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.
- The Trust invests in shares of ETFs. ETFs are investment pools that hold other securities. The ETFs in the Trust are usually passively-managed index funds that seek to replicate the performance or composition of a recognized securities index. ETFs are subject to various risks, including management’s ability to meet the fund’s investment objective. Shares of ETFs may trade at a discount from their net asset value in the secondary market. This risk is separate and distinct from the risk that the net asset value of the ETF shares may decrease. The amount of such discount from net asset value is subject to change from time to time in response to various factors. The underlying ETF has management and operating expenses. You will bear not only your share of your trust’s expenses, but also the expenses of the underlying funds. By investing in ETFs, the Trust incurs greater expenses than you would incur if you invested directly in the ETFs.
- The Trust is subject to index correlation risk. Index correlation risk is the risk that the performance of an ETF will vary from the actual performance of the fund’s target index, known as “tracking error.” This can happen due to fund expenses, transaction costs, market impact, corporate actions (such as mergers and spin-offs) and timing variances.
- The value of the fixed-income securities ETFs will generally fall if interest rates, in general, rise. Typically, fixed-income securities with longer periods before maturity are more sensitive to interest rate changes.
- An ETF or an issuer of securities held by an ETF may be unwilling or unable to make principal payments and/or to declare dividends in the future, may call a security before its stated maturity, or may reduce the level of dividends declared. This may result in a reduction in the value of your units.
- The financial condition of an ETF or an issuer of securities held by an ETF may worsen, resulting in a reduction in the value of your units. This may occur at any point in time, including during the primary offering period.
- The Trust is exposed to commodities through its investment in the underlying ETFs. Commodities prices are highly volatile and are affected by numerous factors in addition to economic activity. These include political events, weather, labor activity, direct government intervention, such as embargos, and supply disruptions in major producing or consuming regions. Those events tend to affect prices worldwide, regardless of the location of the event.
- Certain ETFs held by the Trust invest in bonds that are rated below investment-grade and are considered to be “junk” securities. Below investment-grade obligations are considered to be speculative and are subject to greater market and credit risks, and accordingly, the risk of non-payment or default is higher than with investment-grade securities. In addition, such securities may be more sensitive to interest rate changes and more likely to receive early returns of principal.
- Certain ETFs held by the Trust invest in bonds that are rated as investment-grade by only one rating agency. As a result, such split-rated securities may have more speculative characteristics and are subject to a greater risk of default than securities rated as investment-grade by more than one rating agency.
- The Trust invests in ETFs that hold securities issued by small-capitalization and mid-capitalization companies. These securities customarily involve more investment risk than securities of larger 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.
- Certain ETFs held by the Trust invest in foreign securities. Investment in foreign securities presents additional risk. Foreign risk is the risk that foreign securities will be more volatile than U.S. securities due to such factors as adverse economic, currency, political, social or regulatory developments in a country, including government seizure of assets, excessive taxation, limitations on the use or transfer of assets, the lack of liquidity or regulatory controls with respect to certain industries or differing legal and/or accounting standards.
- Certain ETFs held by the Trust invest in securities issued by companies headquartered or incorporated in countries considered to be emerging markets. Emerging markets are generally defined as countries with low per capita income in the initial stages of their industrialization cycles. Risks of investing in developing or emerging countries include the possibility of investment and trading limitations, liquidity concerns, delays and disruptions in settlement transactions, political uncertainties and dependence on international trade and development assistance. Companies headquartered in emerging market countries may be exposed to greater volatility and market risk.
- 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.
- Inflation may lead to a decrease in the value of assets or income from investments.
Please see the Trust prospectus for more complete risk information.
Unit Investment Trusts ("UITs") are fixed and not actively managed. An investment in this fixed portfolio should be made with an understanding of the risks involved with owning various types of investments. Industry predictions may not materialize and securities selected for the Trust may not participate in overall industry growth, if any. UITs are subject to annual
fund operating expenses in addition to the sales charges. Units, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original price.
This UIT is part of a long-term strategy, and investors should consider their ability to invest in successive portfolios, if available, at the applicable sales charge. Investors should consult an attorney or tax advisor regarding tax consequences associated with an investment from one series to the next, if available, and with the purchase or sale of units. Guggenheim Funds Distributors, LLC does not offer tax advice.
