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 the 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.

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.

Returns are cumulative total returns (not annualized) unless labeled as average annual returns. Distribution Received in Cash returns reflect trust expenses as incurred and assume income and principal distributions are recognized on the ex-dividend date and paid out in cash on the payable date. Distributions Reinvested returns reflect trust expenses as incurred and assume income and principal distributions are recognized on the ex-dividend date and reinvested on the reinvestment date.

Past performance is no indication of future results. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate with changes in market conditions. Units when redeemed may be worth more or less than their original cost.

All returns are historical and do not represent potential future performance. A trust’s performance, especially for short time periods, should not be the sole factor in making your investment decision.

Risk Considerations
Investing involves risk; principal loss is possible. This Trust is unmanaged and there is no guarantee that the trust’s investment objectives will be achieved.   Common stocks do not assure dividend payments. Dividends are paid only when declared by an issuer's board of directors and the amount of any dividend may vary over time.  Investments in below investment grade or high yield securities are subject to liquidity risk and heightened credit risk. Credit risk arises from an issuer’s ability to make interest and principal payments when due, as well as the prices of debt securities declining when an issuer’s credit quality is expected to deteriorate. Interest rate risk occurs when interest rates rise causing debt security prices to fall. Call risk is the risk that securities can be prepaid or “called” by the issuer before their stated maturity. As a result of bond market liquidity risk, the Trust may have to accept a lower price to sell a security.   If the Trust needed to sell large blocks of bonds to meet unitholder redemption requests or to raise cash, those sales could further reduce the bonds’ prices. A portfolio concentrated in a single market sector or country may present more risk than a portfolio broadly diversified over several sectors or countries. This Trust is concentrated in the financial sector.Performance of companies in the financial sector may be adversely impacted by many factors, including, among others, government regulations, economic conditions, changes in interest rates and decreased liquidity in credit markets. Preferred securities are subordinate to bonds and other debt instruments in a company’s capital structure and therefore are subject to greater credit risk. Convertible securities generally offer lower interest or dividend yields than non-convertible fixed income securities of similar credit quality because of the potential for capital appreciation. The market values of convertible securities tend to decline as interest rates increase and, conversely, to increase as interest rates decline. Stocks of mid-cap companies are often more volatile than those of larger companies as a result of several factors such as limited trading volumes, products or financial resources. Non-U.S. investments involve additional risks, including currency fluctuation, political and economic instability, potentially reduced liquidity and differing legal and accounting standards. The Trust’s investments in depositary receipts subjects it to many of the risks of non-U.S. securities. This Trust invests in shares of publicly traded business development companies ("BDCs"). Investments made by BDCs are frequently not publicly traded and, as a result, there is uncertainty as to the value and liquidity of those investments.  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 frequently have high expenses, including management fees, which will be borne indirectly by investors in the Trust.  An inability to access capital markets may have a negative impact on the value of BDC shares and the value of your units.  Unanticipated movements and improper correlation of derivative hedging instruments may prevent a BDC from hedging against exposure to loss.  This Trust invests in REITs and real estate companies. The real estate sector is greatly affected by economic downturns or by changes in real estate values, rents, property taxes, interest rates, tax treatment, regulations, or the legal structure of the REIT. These and other risk considerations, such as various business, market, and investment risks are described in detail in the Trust’s prospectus.
Current Yield is the actual income rate of return as opposed to the yield-to-maturity. Distribution Yield is the most recent distribution paid by an MLP, annualized, and divided by the current MLP price.Dividend Yield for a company’s stock is the ratio of the dividends paid out by a company each year per share to the share’s current market price. Yield-to-Worst is the lowest potential yield that can be received on a bond without the issuer defaulting. It is a measure of the sensitivity of the price of a fixed income investment to a change in interest rates.$25 par exchange-traded senior or subordinated debt securities (“baby bonds”) may be rated investment-grade or below investment grade, which are commonly preferred to as “high-yield” securities or “junk” bonds. Baby bonds are generally long-term, fixed-income debt securities that rank as senior indebtedness. Baby bonds usually have a stated maturity that is at least 10 years after they are issued, and some are issued for as long as 50 years. When a baby bond reaches maturity, the issuing organization is required to repay the principal to the bondholder. The distributions from baby bonds are generally treated as interest rather than dividends for federal income tax purposes and therefore, are not eligible for the dividends received deduction for corporations and do not count as qualified dividend income for individual investors. Convertible securities are hybrid securities that combine the investment characteristics of bonds and common stocks. Mandatory convertible securities typically consist of debt securities or preferred securities that are automatically converted on or before a specific date into common stock of the same issuer based upon the market price of the underlying common stock. Convertible securities entitle the holder to receive interest paid or accrued on debt securities, or dividends paid or accrued on preferred securities, until the securities mature or are redeemed, converted or exchanged. Preferred stocks offer a stated rate of return paid in the form of a dividend and are traded on the basis of their yield. Like common stock, preferred stocks are perpetual equity securities representing ownership in a company. Preferred stock ranks senior to common stock and preferred stockholders enjoy preference over common stockholders with regard to dividends and liquidations. Preferred stockholders may also forfeit or at least be limited in their voting rights.
