Fund Summary

The Guggenheim Multi-Asset Income ETF (NYSE:CVY), seeks investment results that correspond generally to the performance, before the Fund’s fees and expenses, of an equity index called the Zacks Multi-Asset Income Index (the "Zacks Multi-Asset Income Index" or "Index"). The Fund expects to use a sampling approach in seeking to achieve its objective. Sampling means that Guggenheim Funds Investment Advisors, LLC (the "Investment Adviser") uses quantitative analysis to select stocks from the Index universe to obtain a representative sample of stocks that resemble the Index in terms of key risk factors, performance attributes and other characteristics. However, the Fund may use replication to achieve its objective if practicable. The Investment Adviser seeks a correlation over time of 0.95 or better between the Fund’s performance and the performance of the Index. A figure of 1.00 would represent perfect correlation.

The Fund, using a low cost “passive” or “indexing” investment approach, seeks to replicate, before fees and expenses, the performance of the Zacks Multi Asset Income Index. The Zacks Multi Asset Income Index is comprised of approximately 149 securities selected, based on investment and other criteria, from a universe of domestic and international companies. The universe of securities within the Index includes:

  • U.S.-listed common stocks
  • American depositary receipts ("ADRs") paying dividends
  • Real estate investment trusts (“REITs”)
  • Master limited partnerships (“MLPs”)
  • Closed-end funds
  • Canadian royalty trusts
  • Traditional preferred stocks

The depositary receipts included in the Index may be sponsored or unsponsored. The companies in the universe are selected using a proprietary methodology developed by Zacks Investment Research, Inc. ("Zacks" or the “Index Provider”).

All data is provided by Guggenheim Funds Distributors, LLC. or Morningstar. Data is subject to change on a daily basis and represents a percentage of the Fund’s holdings excluding cash, except where noted. The securities mentioned are provided for informational purposes only and should not be deemed as a recommendation to buy or sell.

*Morningstar category is based on the underlying securities of the ETF and not the objective. The Morningstar Rating™ is provided for those exchange-traded funds (“ETFs”) with at least a three-year history. Ratings are based on the ETF’s Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure which accounts for variation in monthly performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. An ETF’s risk-adjusted return includes a brokerage commission estimate. This estimate is intended to reflect what an average investor would pay when buying or selling an ETF. PLEASE NOTE, this estimate is subject to change and the actual brokerage commission an investor pays may be higher or lower than this estimate. Morningstar compares each ETF’s risk-adjusted return to the open-end mutual fund rating breakpoints for that category. Consistent with the open-end mutual fund ratings, the top 10% of ETFs in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The overall rating for an ETF is based on a weighted average of the time-period ratings (e.g., the ETF’s 3-, 5-, and 10-year rating). The determination of an ETF’s rating does not affect the retail open end mutual fund data published by Morningstar. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

The gross expense ratio reflects the fund’s actual total annual operating expense ratio, gross of any fee waivers or expense reimbursements as of its most recent prospectus. While there is currently a contractual fee waiver in place through December 31, 2016, some expenses fall outside of this expense cap and therefore net operating expenses may be higher. Without this expense cap, actual returns would be lower. See the prospectus for information on the fees and expenses.

Standard Deviation (Fund / Dow Jones US Select Dividend Index) 11.03/0

P/E ratio is a harmonic weighted average and is equal to a security’s market capitalization divided by it after-tax earnings over the most recent 12-month period.

P/B ratio is a harmonic weighted average and is equal to a security’s market capitalization divided by its book value.

Alpha is a statistical measurement that depicts the performance difference between a fund’s return and an underlying performance benchmark, given a fund’s level of volatility, measured by beta. The benchmark will always reflect an alpha of 0.00%. A positive alpha indicates a fund has performed better than its beta would predict in the stated period.

Beta is the measure of a fund’s sensitivity to an index. By definition, the beta of an index is 1.00. Any fund with a higher beta is more volatile than the index. Likewise, any portfolio with a lower beta will be less volatile than the index in the stated period.

Standard deviation is a measure of historical volatility that indicates the degree to which an investment’s returns fluctuate around its average return. Generally, a higher standard deviation indicates a more risky investment.

Average market capitalization is the geometric mean of the market capitalization s for all securities in a fund’s portfolio.

Weighted average coupon is calculated by weighting each bond’s coupon by its relative size in the portfolio.

Weighted average bond price is a weighted average of individual bond prices.

Weighted average option-adjusted duration is a weighted average which measures the sensitivity of the price (the value of principal), incorporating the expected duration-shortening effect of an embedded call provision, of a fixed-income investment to a change in interest rates. The larger the duration number, the greater the interest-rate risk for bond prices.

Average maturity is the length of time until the principal amount of a bond must be repaid.

Average effective duration measures the sensitivity of the price (value of principal) of a fixed income investment to a change in interest rates. The larger the duration number, the greater the interest rate risk for bond prices.

INDEX METHODOLOGY

The Index methodology is published at www.zacks.com. The Index selection methodology is designed to identify companies with potentially high income and superior risk-return profiles as determined by Zacks. The objective of the Index is to select a diversified group of securities with the potential to have a yield in excess of and outperform, on a risk adjusted basis, the Dow Jones US Select Dividend Index and other benchmark indices.

The Index constituent selection methodology utilizes multi-factor proprietary selection rules to identify those securities that offer the greatest potential from a yield and risk/return perspective while maintaining industry diversification. The approach is specifically designed to enhance investment applications and investability. The constituent selection process, as well as the ranking, reconstitution and rebalancing of the Index, is repeated quarterly.

INDEX CONSTRUCTION

  1. Potential Index constituents include all U.S. stocks and ADRs that pay dividends, as well as REITs, MLPs, closed-end funds, Canadian royalty trusts and traditional preferred stocks.
  2. The Index is comprised of approximately the 125 to 150 highest-ranking securities chosen using a rules-based quantitative ranking methodology proprietary to Zacks. Half (50%) or more of the portfolio will consist of dividend-paying common stocks. Closed-end funds are limited to 10% of the portfolio. MLPs may make up one-quarter (25%) of the portfolio. Exposure to all other categories of investment type (ADRs, REITs and preferred stock) other than U.S. common stock are limited to a 20% maximum per investment type.
  3. Each company within each investment type is ranked using a quantitative rules-based methodology that includes yield, company growth, liquidity, relative value and other factors and is sorted from highest to lowest.
  4. The approximately 125 to 150 constituents are chosen and are weighted based on a proprietary method developed by Zacks within each investment type.
  5. The constituent selection process, as well as the ranking, reconstitution and rebalancing of the Index, is repeated quarterly.
  6. The securities comprising the portfolio are regularly reviewed for deletion or dilution based on factors determined by Zacks.

Risks and Other Considerations Investors should consider the following risk factors and special considerations associated with investing in the fund, which may cause you to lose money, including the entire principal amount that you invest.

Equity Risk: The value of the equity securities held by the fund will fall due to general market and economic conditions, perceptions regarding the industries in which the issuers of securities held by the fund participate, or factors relating to specific companies in which the fund invests.

Preferred Stock Risk: There are certain additional risks associated with investing in preferred securities, including, but not limited to, (i) preferred securities may include provisions that permit the issuer, at its discretion, to defer or omit distributions for a stated period without any adverse consequences to the issuer; (ii) preferred securities are generally subordinated to bonds and other debt instruments in a company’s capital structure in terms of having priority to corporate income and liquidation payments, and therefore will be subject to greater credit risk than more senior debt instruments; preferred securities may be substantially less liquid than many other securities, such as common stocks or U.S. Government securities; generally, traditional preferred securities offer no voting rights with respect to the issuing company unless preferred dividends have been in arrears for a specified number of periods, at which time the preferred security holders may elect a number of directors to the issuer’s board; in certain varying circumstances, an issuer of preferred securities may redeem the securities prior to a specified date.

Foreign Investment Risk: The fund’s investments in non-U.S. issuers, although generally limited to ADRs, may involve unique risks compared to investing in securities of U.S. issuers, including less market liquidity, generally greater market volatility than U.S. securities and less complete financial information than for U.S. issuers.

REIT Risk: Investments in securities of real estate companies involve risks. These risks include, among others, adverse changes in national, state or local real estate conditions; obsolescence of properties; changes in the availability, cost and terms of mortgage funds; and the impact of changes in environmental laws.

MLP Risk: Investments in securities of MLPs involve risks that differ from an investment in common stock. Holders of the units of MLPs have more limited control and limited rights to vote on matters affecting the partnership.

Risks of Investing In Other Investment Companies: Investments in securities of other investment companies involve risks, including, among others, the fact that shares of other investment companies are subject to the management fees and other expenses of those companies, and the purchase of shares of some investment companies (in the case of closed-end investment companies) may sometimes require the payment of premiums above the value of such companies’ portfolio securities or net asset values.

Oils/Energy Sector Risk: The profitability of companies in the oils/energy sector is related to worldwide energy prices, exploration, and production spending. Such companies also are subject to risks of changes in exchange rates, government regulation, world events, depletion of resources and economic conditions, as well as market, economic and political risks of the countries where energy companies are located or do business.

Financial Services Sector Risk: The financial services industries are subject to extensive government regulation, can be subject to relatively rapid change due to increasingly blurred distinctions between service segments, and can be significantly affected by availability and cost of capital funds, changes in interest rates, the rate of corporate and consumer debt defaults, and price competition.

Small and Medium-Sized Company Risk: Investing in securities of small and medium-sized companies involves greater risk than is customarily associated with investing in larger, more established companies.

Below-Investment Grade Securities Risk: The fund may invest in certain preferred stocks that are rated below investment grade.

Portfolio Turnover Risk: The fund may engage in active and frequent trading of its portfolio securities in connection with the quarterly rebalancing of the Index, and therefore the fund’s investments.

Concentration Risk: If the Index concentrates in an industry or group of industries the fund’s investments will be concentrated accordingly. In such event, the value of the fund’s shares may rise and fall more than the value of shares of a fund that invests in securities of companies in a broader range of industries. In addition the fund is subject to Non-Correlation Risk, Replication Management Risk, and Issuer-Specific Changes.

The Fund’s Shares will change in value, and you could lose money by investing in the Fund. The Fund may not achieve its investment objective. An investment in the Fund has not been guaranteed, sponsored, recommended, or approved by the United States, or any agency, instrumentality or officer of the United States, has not been insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and is not guaranteed by and is not otherwise an obligation of any bank or insured depository institution.

As with any investment, you should consider how your investment will be taxed. The tax information contained in the prospectus is provided as general information. Investors should consult their own tax professional about the tax consequences of an investment as Guggenheim Funds Distributors, LLC, does not offer tax advice.

The Fund will issue and redeem Shares at NAV only in a large specified number of Shares called a “Creation Unit” or multiples thereof. A Creation Unit consists of 50,000 Shares. The Fund generally issues and redeems Creation Units principally in-kind. Except when aggregated in Creation Units, the Shares are not redeemable securities of the Fund. Individual Shares of the Fund may only be purchased and sold in secondary market transactions through brokers. Shares of the Fund are listed for trading on NYSE Arca, Inc. (“NYSE Arca”) and because Shares trade at market prices rather than NAV, Shares of the Fund may trade at a price greater than or less than NAV.

Investors buying or selling ETF shares on the secondary market may incur brokerage costs and other transactional fees. Shares of ETFs may fluctuate in price due to daily changes in trading volume. At times, shares may not have a high volume of trading.
