There is no assurance the trust will achieve its investment objective. An investment in this unmanaged unit investment trust is subject to market risk, which is the possibility that the market values of securities owned by the trust will decline and that the value of trust units may therefore be less than what you paid for them. Accordingly, you can lose money investing in this trust.
The value of the fixed income securities in certain of the ETFs will generally fall if interest rates, in general, rise. No one can predict whether interest rates will rise or fall in the future.
A security issuer may be unable to make interest and/or principal payments in the future. This may reduce the level of dividends certain of the ETFs pay which would reduce your income and cause the value of the units to fall.
The portfolio invests in shares of ETFs, closed-end funds and open-end funds. Shares of ETFs may, and closed-end funds frequently, tend to trade at a discount from their net asset value and shares of all funds are subject to risks related to factors such as management's ability to achieve a fund's objective, market conditions affecting a fund's investments and use of leverage. In addition, there is the risk that the market price of an ETF's shares may trade at a discount from its net asset value, an active secondary market may not develop or be maintained, or trading may be halted by the exchange on which they trade, which may impact the portfolio's ability to sell the ETF shares. The portfolio and the underlying funds have management and operating expenses. You will bear not only your share of the portfolio's expenses, but also the expenses of the underlying funds. By investing in other funds, the portfolio incurs greater expenses than you would incur if you invested directly in the funds.
The Portfolio invests in shares of publicly traded business development companies ("BDCs"). BDCs invest in privately-held companies, the securities of which are generally less liquid than are publicly traded securities. BDCs may have relatively concentrated investment portfolios, consisting of a relatively small number of holdings. A BDC’s gains and losses may be magnified through the use of leverage. BDCs generally depend on access to capital markets in order to raise cash, acquire suitable investments and monitor and implement certain financial strategies. An inability to access these markets may have a negative impact on the value of BDC shares and the value of your units. Many debt investments in which BDCs invest will not be rated by a credit rating agency and will be below investment grade quality.
Certain of the funds in the portfolio invest in master limited partnerships (MLPs). Most MLPs operate in the energy sector and are subject to the risks generally applicable to companies in that sector, including commodity pricing risk, supply and demand risk, depletion risk and exploration risk. MLPs are also subject the risk that regulatory or legislative changes could eliminate the tax benefits enjoyed by MLPs which could have a negative impact on the after-tax income available for distribution by the MLPs and/or the value of the Portfolio's investments.
Certain of the funds may invest in fixed income securities rated below investment grade and considered to be "junk" securities. These securities are considered to be speculative and are subject to greater market and credit risks. Accordingly, the risk of default is higher than with investment grade securities. In addition, these securities may be more sensitive to interest rate changes and may be more likely to make early returns of principal.
Stocks of foreign companies held by the funds in the portfolio present risks beyond those of U.S. issuers. These risks may include company's foreign market, international trade conditions, less regulation, smaller or less liquid markets, increased volatility, differing accounting practices and changes in the value of foreign currencies.
