Corporate Bond Risk. An investment in a portfolio containing corporate bonds is subject to certain risks, including higher interest rates, economic recession, deterioration of the bond market or investors' perception thereof, possible downgrades and defaults of interest and/or principal.
Buy & Hold Risk – Taxable Trusts. This UIT is a buy and hold strategy and investors should consider their ability to hold the trust until maturity. There may be tax consequences unless units are purchased in an IRA or other qualified plan.
Financials Risk. The companies engaged in the financials sector are subject to the adverse effects of volatile interest rates, economic recession, decreases in the availability of capital, increased competition from new entrants in the field, and potential increased regulation.
Foreign Securities Risk. An investment in securities of foreign issuers should be made with an understanding of the additional risks involved, such as currency fluctuations, political risk, withholding, the lack of adequate financial information, and exchange control restrictions impacting foreign issuers.
Small-Cap and Mid-Cap Risk. An investment in a portfolio containing small-cap and mid-cap companies is subject to additional risks, as the share prices of small-cap companies and certain mid-cap companies are often more volatile than those of larger companies due to several factors, including limited trading volumes, products, financial resources, management inexperience and less publicly available information.
Volatility Risk. The value of the securities held by the trust may be subject to steep declines or increased volatility due to changes in performance or perception of the issuers.
Operational Risk. As the use of Internet technology has become more prevalent in the course of business, the trust has become more susceptible to potential operational risks through breaches in cyber security.
Income distributions per unit will vary with changes in interest received on the underlying bonds and with changes in the trust's fees and expenses. Generally, as bonds in the portfolio mature or are redeemed by the issuer, income distributions per unit will decrease. Principal distributions per unit will be made only when the trust receives principal cash, generally from bonds maturing or proceeds from bond calls, and therefore will vary. With the exception of zero coupon bonds, bonds are generally callable at par value, or possibly, at a premium over par. Zero coupon bonds are generally callable at their accreted value on the call date or, possibly, at a premium over such accreted value. Both income and principal distributions may be affected by the sale of bonds in the portfolio. Refer to the prospectus for a further discussion of the factors which could affect income and principal distributions.
