Mega-Cap Portfolio, Series 65
The Mega-Cap Portfolio invests in some of the largest companies in the world. These companies are
well-known blue chip companies that are widely regarded as leaders in their respective industries.
These companies, known for their quality products and services, are some of the most successful in the
world and have the potential to provide their stockholders with a greater degree of stability and
consistent performance over time.
Mega-cap companies typically have a notable presence throughout the world. Recently, more opportunities have arisen outside of the United States, where populations are growing rapidly and market
penetration is lower. The United Nations anticipates that the current world population of 7.7 billion could potentially increase to 9.7 billion in 2050 driven by growth in developing countries. According
to the International Monetary Fund, world GDP growth is estimated to be 3.6% in both 2022 and 2023.
This unit investment trust seeks above-average capital appreciation; however, there is
no assurance the objective will be met.

The COVID-19 global pandemic has caused significant volatility and declines in global financial markets, causing losses for investors. The development of vaccines has slowed the spread of the virus and allowed for the
resumption of “reasonably” normal business activity in the United States, although many countries continue to impose lockdown measures. Additionally, there is no guarantee that vaccines will be effective against emerging
variants of the disease.
The value of the securities held by the trust may be subject to steep declines
