The trust seeks to provide current income and, as a secondary objective, the potential for capital appreciation.
Under normal circumstances, the trust will invest at least 80% of the value of its assets in alternative asset classes consisting of real estate investment trusts (“REITs”), shares of closed-end funds that have elected to be treated as business development companies under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (“BDCs”), master limited partnerships (“MLPs”) and shares of closed-end investment companies (“Closed-End Funds”) that invest substantially all of their assets in MLPs. The sponsor has decided to combine these asset classes to create a trust that has the potential to benefit from the performance of each asset class as well as the reduced volatility that can result from an increase in diversification. As a result of this strategy, the trust is concentrated in the energy sector, financial sector and real estate sector. 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.
