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. Investing in the Trust units may involve a high degree of risk and volatility due to the speculative nature of certain alternative investment options, such as real estate investment trusts (REITs) and business development companies (BDCs). As a result, an investment in the Trust may not be suitable for an investor with a low risk tolerance. The real estate industry 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. Risks associated with BDCs include leverage risk, liquidity risk, and the risk of changes in laws or regulations governing these types of companies.  Leverage may magnify the potential for losses on amounts invested by a BDC and, accordingly, may increase the volatility and risks associated with securities of BDCs. The BDCs held by the Trust may invest in derivatives to hedge certain risks, but there may be an imperfect correlation, or even no correlation, between price movements of a derivative and price movements of the investment being hedged. Shares of BDCs frequently trade at a discount to their net asset value.BDCs frequently have high expenses, including management fees, which will be borne indirectly by investors in the Trust. Investors will incur higher expenses by investing in the Trust than they would incur if they invested directly in REITs and BDCs. BDCs may invest significantly in securities of small and mid-cap companies that are often more volatile than those of larger companies as a result of several factors such as limited trading volumes, products or financial resources, management inexperience and less publicly available information. BDCs may invest in fixed income securities which may be susceptible to general movements in the bond market and are subject to credit, interest rate, liquidity and call risks. Fixed-income securities held by a BDC will decline if market interest rates rise.  BDCs may invest in high yield debt securities, including senior loans, which are below investment grade quality.  Below investment grade credit quality securities are predominantly speculative and subject to greater volatility and risk of default.  Below Investment grade debt is also subject to the risk of higher interest rates, market risk and the risk of economic recession. BDCs may invest in non-U.S. securities. Investments in non-U.S securities involve special risks not typically associated with domestic investments including currency fluctuation, political and economic instability, lack of liquidity and differing legal and accounting standards. 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 as it invests exclusively in BDCs and REITs. 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. There is no assurance that common stocks will make dividend payments. Dividends are paid only if declared by an issuer's board of directors and the amount of any dividend may vary over time. These and other risk considerations, such as various business, market, and investment risks are described in detail in the Trust’s prospectus.

Prospect Capital Management L.P. serves as the portfolio consultant responsible for recommending a portfolio of securities for the Trust and is not affiliated with the Trust’s sponsor or its evaluator and supervisor.
