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.
You should be aware that the portfolio is concentrated in stocks in the financials sector which involves
additional risks, including limited diversification. 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.
Certain of the securities in the trust are issued by Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs). Companies involved
in the real estate industry are subject to changes in the real estate market, vacancy rates and competition,
volatile interest rates and economic recession.
Securities of non-U.S. issuers are subject to additional risks, including currency fluctuations, political risks, withholding, the lack of adequate financial information, and exchange control restrictions impacting non-U.S. issuers.
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.
Large capitalization companies may grow at a slower rate than the overall market.
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 cybersecurity.
In February 2022, Russia invaded Ukraine which has caused and could continue to cause significant market disruptions and volatility within the markets in Russia, Europe, and the United States.
