charges and expenses carefully before investing. Contact your financial professional

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 both the health care and information
technology sectors which involves additional risks, including limited diversification. The companies
engaged in the health care sector are subject to fierce competition, high research and development costs,
governmental regulations, loss of patent protection, and changing consumer spending trends. In addition,
health crises, such as a pandemic outbreak, can severely impact the health care industry in particular. The
companies engaged in the information technology sector are subject to fierce competition, high research
and development costs, and their products and services may be subject to rapid obsolescence. Technology
company stocks, especially those which are Internet-related, may experience extreme price and volume
fluctuations that are often unrelated to their operating performance.
An investment in foreign securities should be made with an understanding of the additional risks involved
with foreign issuers, such as currency and interest rate fluctuations, nationalization or other adverse political
or economic developments, lack of liquidity of certain foreign markets, withholding, the lack of adequate
financial information, and exchange control restrictions impacting foreign 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 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.
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.
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.
The recent outbreak of a respiratory disease designated as COVID-19 was first detected in China in December 2019. The global economic impact of the COVID-19 outbreak is impossible to predict but is expected to disrupt
manufacturing, supply chains and sales in affected areas and negatively impact global economic growth prospects. The COVID-19 outbreak has also caused significant volatility and declines in global financial markets, which
have caused losses for investors. The impact of the COVID-19 outbreak may be short term or may last for an extended period of time, and in either case could result in a substantial economic downturn or recession.
Although this portfolio terminates in approximately 15 months, the strategy is long-term. Investors should consider their ability to pursue investing in
successive portfolios, if available. There may be tax consequences unless units are purchased in an IRA or other qualified plan.
