Clsd-End Strgy: Sen Loan and Ltd Dur (LOAN0035)

Objective

The portfolio seeks to provide high current income. The portfolio seeks to achieve its objective by investing in a portfolio primarily consisting of common stock of closed-end investment companies (known as "closed-end funds") that invest in senior corporate loans or other debt securities of limited duration.

If you're interested in an investment which has income generating potential, but are concerned about rising interest rates, you may want to consider adding the Closed-End Strategy: Senior Loan and Limited Duration Portfolio to your current investment mix.

Why consider investing in the Closed-End Strategy: Senior Loan and Limited Duration Portfolio?
For investors who seek income, but are concerned about interest-rate risk, the trust may offer a compelling opportunity. The portfolio is comprised of funds that invest in income securities that are typically less sensitive to changing interest rates.

The trust may offer:

  • Current income potential
  • Floating distribution rates
  • Typically less interest-rate risk compared to portfolios of long-term fixed-rate securities
  • Diversification of portfolio managers
  • Daily liquidity* (Investment return and principal value will fluctuate and units, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.)

Senior Loans: The Floating-Rate Advantage?
Senior loans (also referred to as bank, syndicated or leveraged loans) are loans made by large banks and credit companies to corporations often rated below investment grade, partnerships and other business entities that use the loans to finance leveraged buyouts, acquisitions and recapitalizations. Like bonds, senior loans offer a potential stream of interest income. Senior loans also offer these distinct features and benefits:

  • Floating Rates
    Unlike bonds which have a fixed rate of interest, senior loans are adjustable-rate securities. The interest rates on the loans are pegged to short-term interest rates, such as LIBOR (the London Interbank Offered Rate), and are reset periodically-typically every 30 to 90 days. As a result, the interest earned on senior loans adjusts up and down with changes in short-term interest rates. However, an increase in interest rates may not be immediately reflected in the rates of the loans.

  • Historically Reduced Interest-Rate Risk
    Because the rates on senior loans float with short-term interest rates, changes in prevailing market rates had a limited effect on the value of senior loans. As a result, senior loans may entail less interest-rate risk and may help manage the risk inherent in a fixed-income portfolio.

  • Potentially Higher Income
    Senior loans also offer the potential to earn more current income when interest rates are rising. Of course, senior loans may earn less current income if interest rates fall. Plus, the rates on senior loans float at a margin above prevailing short-term rates. This yield premium, along with the floating-nature of the loans, may make senior loans a compelling investment for investors seeking to maximize current income.

The Potential Opportunity of Limited-Duration Funds
Securities with a lower duration (or sensitivity to interest-rate changes) also generally entail less interest-rate risk. The trust invests in a variety of funds that are managed around a lower, target duration and that seek to provide attractive yields. Fund investments are diversified across various investments including mortgage-backed securities, corporate bonds, and senior loans.

1The Trust will make distributions of income and capital on each monthly Distribution Date to Unit holders of record on the preceding Record Date, provided that the total cash held for distribution equals at least the amount set forth under the Essential Information section of the prospectus. Undistributed income and capital will be distributed in the next quarter in which the total cash held for distribution equals at least the amount set forth under the Essential Information section of the prospectus.

  Estimated Annual Income Per Unit is as of the date listed in the prospectus and is based on the most recently declared monthly 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 dividend distributions you receive will vary from the estimate set forth above with changes in the trust's fees and expenses, in dividends received, currency fluctuations and with the sale of securities. The actual net annual dividends 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.

2As of 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 that a unit investment 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.

The closed-end funds held by the portfolio invest in senior loans. Although senior loans in which the closed-end funds invest may be secured by specific collateral, there can be no assurance that liquidation of collateral would satisfy the borrower's obligation in the event of non-payment of scheduled principal or interest or that such collateral could be readily liquidated. Senior loans in which the closed-end funds invest generally are of below investment grade credit quality, may be unrated at the time of investment, generally are not registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission or any state securities commission, and generally are not listed on any securities exchange. In addition, the amount of public information available on senior loans generally is less extensive than that available for other types of assets.

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 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.

The yield on closed-end funds which invest in senior loans will generally decline in a falling interest rate environment and increase in a rising interest rate environment. Because interest rates on senior loans are reset periodically an increase in interest rates may not be immediately reflected in the rates of the loans.

Senior loans 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. 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 is reflected in the returns as of the time of payment. by a trust. These returns reflect any contingent 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 creation and development fee prior to collection (generally the close of the initial offering period). Any creation and development fee is reflected in the returns as of the time of payment by a trust.

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 non-contingent 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 non-contingent 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, non-contingent deferred sales charge and creation and development fee.
