International Capital Strength Portfolio, Series 36

The International Capital Strength Portfolio provides a convenient way to add an international dimension to your investment portfolio, significantly expanding your investment opportunities and potentially enhancing your overall return.

Portfolio Selection Process

Through our selection process we seek to find the stocks that we believe have the best prospects for above-average capital appreciation.

Chart

Identify the Universe
We begin by selecting stocks of foreign companies that trade on a U.S. stock exchange either directly or through an American Depositary Receipt.

Screen For Financial Strength
We then evaluate companies based on multiple factors. These factors are designed to identify those stocks which exhibit strong fundamental characteristics and to eliminate those that do not meet our investment criteria.

Examine Historical Financial Results
The next step in our process is to look for those companies that have earned a net cash flow return on investment that is above the average of their peers. Historically, companies that have increased their cash flows at a higher rate have rewarded shareholders with superior total returns.

Select Companies With Attractive Valuations
The final step in our process is to select companies based on the fundamental analysis of our team of research analysts. The stocks selected for the portfolio are those that meet our investment objective, trade at attractive valuations, and in our opinion, are likely to exceed market expectations of future cash flows.

Portfolio Objective

This unit investment trust seeks above-average capital appreciation; however, there is no assurance the objective will be met. The portfolio terminates approximately two years from the initial date of deposit.

You should consider the portfolio's investment objectives, risks, and charges and expenses carefully before investing.

Read it carefully before you invest.

Risk Considerations:
An investment in this unmanaged unit investment trust should be made with an understanding of the risks involved with owning common stocks, such as an economic recession and the possible deterioration of either the financial condition of the issuers of the equity securities or the general condition of the stock market.

An investment in a portfolio containing equity securities of foreign issuers is subject to additional risks, including currency fluctuations, political risks, withholding, the lack of adequate financial information, and exchange control restrictions impacting foreign issuers. Risks associated with investing in foreign securities may be more pronounced in emerging markets where the securities markets are substantially smaller, less liquid, less regulated and more volatile than the U.S. and developed foreign markets.

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.

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.
