Sabrient Rising Rate Portfolio, Series 9
Sabrient Systems, LLC is an independent equity research firm that builds powerful investment strategies by using a fundamentals-based, quantitative approach. The strategies are used to create rankings and ratings on more than 7,000 stocks, indices, sectors, and ETFs. Their models are designed to identify those companies that are anticipated to outperform or underperform the market.
Historically, certain stocks have outperformed the market in periods during which longer-term
Treasury bonds have rising yields and Sabrient believes 10-year and longer Treasury yields are
likely to rise over the next several years. The Sabrient Rising Rate Portfolio is a unit investment
trust that seeks to find companies that Sabrient believes are positioned to perform well in
environments of rising Treasury yields. The stocks in the portfolio are selected by applying a
comprehensive investment strategy developed by Sabrient.
This unit investment trust seeks above-average
capital appreciation; however, there is no
assurance the objective will be met. The
portfolio terminates approximately 2 years from
the initial date of deposit.

certain risks, including a deterioration in
the general state of the economy, intense

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.
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.
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.
