Closed-End Strategy: Global Income Portfolio (GLIN0015)

Objective

The Portfolio seeks above-average total return. The Portfolio seeks to achieve its objective by investing in a portfolio consisting of common stocks of closed-end investment companies (known as “closed-end funds”) that invest in various global equity and fixed income securities. These closed-end funds may invest in a wide range of sectors and strategies such as global real estate, global stocks, global bonds, preferred securities, convertible securities, emerging markets bonds and other total return strategies.

Total Return with the Potential for High Monthly Income
The Global Income Portfolio combines a wide variety of global closed-end funds to offer a diversified portfolio of global yield-sources. The anticipated portfolio composition may contain Global Equity and Global Fixed Income securities across the following categories:

  • Covered call and income
  • Emerging market debt
  • Energy, natural resources and basic materials
  • Global income
  • Government
  • High yield/high income
  • Limited duration
  • Real estate
  • Tax-advantaged dividend/ Tax-managed
  • Total return
  • Utility

Value Opportunity-Potential to Invest in Closed-End Funds at a Discount to NAV
The portfolio invests primarily in equity and income oriented closed-end funds, which offer potential for long-term growth. Recently, many closed-end funds have been trading at prices that represent a discount to the net asset value (NAV) of their holdings.

Term Structure-24 months
The 24-month term structure of the unit trust allows investors the advantage of a current portfolio in a disciplined long-term strategy.

Diversification
Diversified portfolio of approximately 20-25 closed-end funds that range across several different fund managers, asset classes and sectors. Diversification does not protect against a loss in a particular market; however, it can spread risk across various asset classes.

Fund selection criteria:
The strategy selects investments with the goal of providing monthly income from a diversified portfolio of global closed-end funds. An investment must pass several screens before it is included in the GLIN portfolio.

1The Portfolio will make distributions of income and capital on each specified Distribution Date to Unit holders of record on the preceding Record Date, provided that the total cash held for distribution meets or exceeds any applicable minimum that may be specified in the prospectus. Undistributed income and capital will be distributed on the next Distribution Date in which the total cash held for distribution meets or exceeds any applicable minimum that may be specified in the prospectus.

  The Estimated Annual Income per Unit is as of the date listed in the prospectus during the trust's initial offering period, and is updated each calendar quarter thereafter. This amount is based on the most recently declared dividends or interim and final dividends accounting for any foreign withholding taxes, but may also be based upon several recently declared dividends. The actual net annual distributions you receive will vary from the estimate set forth above with changes in the trust's fees and expenses, in dividends and distributions received, currency fluctuations and with the sale of trust securities. The actual net annual distributions are expected to decrease over time because a portion of the securities included in the trust will be sold over time to pay for organization costs. Securities may also be sold to pay regular fees and expenses during the trust's life.

  The portfolio may make distributions that represent a return of capital for tax purposes to the extent of the Unitholder's basis in the Units, and any additional amounts in excess of basis would be taxed as a capital gain. Generally, you will treat all capital gains dividends as long-term capital gains regardless of how long you have owned your Units. Unitholders should consult with their individual tax advisors.

2As of the close of business day prior to Initial Date of Deposit. The actual distributions you may receive will vary from the estimated amount due to changes in the Portfolio's fees and expenses, in actual income received by the Portfolio, currency fluctuations and with changes in the Portfolio such as acquisition or liquidation of securities.

The trust portfolio is provided for informational purposes only and should not be deemed as a recommendation to buy or sell the individual securities shown above.


About risk

There is no assurance the trust will achieve its investment objective. An investment in this 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. This trust is unmanaged and its portfolio is not intended to change during the trust's life except in limited circumstances. Accordingly, you can lose money investing in this trust.

You will bear not only your share of the trust's expenses, but also those of the underlying funds. By investing in other funds, the trust incurs greater expenses than you would incur if you invested directly in the funds.

A security issuer may be unable to make interest and/or principal payments in the future. This may reduce the level of dividends a closed-end fund pays which would reduce your income and cause the value of your units to fall.

The trust may, from time to time, emphasize certain market sectors. To the extent the trust does so, it is more susceptible to economic, political and other occurrences influencing those sectors.

Shares of closed-end funds frequently trade at a discount to their net asset value in the secondary market and the net asset value of closed-end fund shares may decrease.

Certain of the closed-end funds invest in bonds issued by foreign issuers. Such bonds are subject to certain risks including currency and interest rate fluctuations, nationalization or other adverse political or economic developments, lack of liquidity of certain foreign markets, withholding, the lack of adequate financial information, and exchange control restrictions impacting foreign issuers.

The yield on closed-end funds which invest in bonds will generally decline in a falling interest rate environment and increase in a rising interest rate environment.

Certain closed-end funds may employ the use of leverage in their portfolios. While leverage often increases the yield of a closed-end fund, it also increases risks, including the likelihood of increased volatility and the possibility that the closed-end fund's common share income will fall if the dividend rate on the preferred shares or the interest rate on any borrowings rises.

Certain closed-end funds may invest in high yield bonds that are generally below investment grade quality ("junk" bonds). Investing in such bonds should be viewed as speculative and you should review your ability to assume the risks associated with investments which utilize such bonds. Junk bonds are subject to numerous risks including higher interest rates, economic recession, deterioration of the junk bond market, possible downgrades and defaults of interest and/or principal. Junk bond prices tend to fluctuate more than higher rated bonds and are affected by short-term credit developments to a greater degree.

Performance data quoted represents past performance, which is no guarantee of future results. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate and units, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.

Returns are cumulative total returns (not annualized) unless labeled as average annual total returns. All returns reflect trust expenses as incurred and assume reinvestment of income and principal distributions, except for trusts that do not offer the option of reinvesting distributions into additional trust units. Please see the related trust prospectus for additional information. Returns do not reflect taxes.

A trust's performance, especially for short time periods, should not be the sole factor in making your investment decision. Please keep in mind that high, double-digit returns are highly unusual and cannot be sustained. Investors should also be aware that these returns were primarily achieved during favorable market conditions.

"Returns With Transactional Sales Charge" reflect the maximum transactional sales charge that would be payable by an investor upon sale or redemption of units at the end of the applicable period(s). The transactional sales charge includes any initial or deferred sales charges other than creation and development fee, if applicable. These returns do not reflect any creation and development fee prior to collection (generally the close of the initial offering period). Any creation and development fee, if applicable, is reflected in the returns as of the time of payment by a trust. These returns reflect any deferred sales charges only if the charges would be payable upon a unit sale or redemption at or prior to the end of the applicable performance period(s). Certain trusts are no longer offered for sale to the public and, as a result, do not publish an offer price or have a sales charge. In these cases, returns will not reflect a sales charge if a trust was not actually offered for sale to the public on the first day of the applicable period because units of the trust could not have been purchased by an investor at that time. These returns will show 'N/A' for "With Transactional Sales Charge" data.

"Returns Without Transactional Sales Charge" do not reflect any transactional sales charge and do not reflect any applicable creation and development fee prior to collection (generally the close of the initial offering period). Any creation and development fee, if applicable, is reflected in the returns as of the time of payment by a trust.

Distributions

From   to

BID PRICE
Represents the net asset value per unit plus any remaining organization costs, deferred sales charge and creation and development fee. This price is not the purchase price of units and in many cases is not the price a unitholder would receive if the unitholder redeemed or sold units. Any remaining deferred sales charge payments are payable at the time a unit holder redeems or sells units.

LIQUIDATION PRICE
Represents the value per unit that a unitholder would receive if the unitholder redeemed or sold units. This price is equal to the net asset value per unit plus any remaining organization costs and creation and development fee. This price reflects any remaining deferred sales charges payable in connection with a liquidation of units.

OFFER PRICE
Represents the net asset value per unit plus any applicable organization costs and sales charges. This is the regular public offering price per unit paid to purchase units. This price is often subject to certain sales charge discounts described in a trust prospectus.

NET ASSET VALUE (NAV)
Represents the value per unit of a trust's portfolio securities and other assets reduced by trust expenses and other liabilities, including remaining organization costs, deferred sales charges and creation and the development fee.
