 Historical 12-Month Distribution of Trust Holdings:^
Rate  Per Unit (as of 2/24/2020)
----- $0.17430
^There is no guarantee the issuers of the securities included in the trust will declare dividends or distributions in the future. The historical 12-month distribution per unit of the securities included in the trust are for illustrative purposes only and are not indicative of the trust's distribution or distribution rate. The historical 12-month distribution per unit is based on the weighted average of the trailing twelve month distributions paid by the securities included in the portfolio. The historical 12-month distributions are reduced to account for the effects of fees and expenses, which will be incurred when investing in a trust. For trusts that include funds, distributions may include realized short term capital gains, realized long-term capital gains and/or return of capital. PLEASE NOTE: For trusts that hold preferred securities, the historical distribution is calculated only using the holdings that have 12 months of distribution history. Any holdings without a 12 month history of dividends were excluded from the calculation. Certain of the issuers may have reduced their dividends or distributions over the prior twelve months. The distribution per unit paid by the trust may be higher or lower than the amount shown above due to certain factors that may include, but are not limited to, a change in the dividends or distributions paid by issuers, actual expenses incurred, or the sale of securities in the portfolio.

Risk Considerations

Equity Risk. An investment in a portfolio containing common stocks is subject to certain risks, 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.

Sector Concentration Risk. A portfolio which is concentrated in an individual sector is subject to additional risks, including limited diversification.

Consumer Products Risk. The companies engaged in the consumer products sector are subject to global competition, changing government regulations and trade policies, currency fluctuations, and the financial and political risks inherent in producing products for foreign markets.

Foreign Securities Risk. An investment in securities of foreign issuers should be made with an understanding of the additional risks involved, such as currency fluctuations, political risk, withholding, the lack of adequate financial information, and exchange control restrictions impacting foreign issuers.

REITs Risk. An investment in a portfolio containing REIT securities is subject to additional risks including limited diversification. 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.

Small-Cap and Mid-Cap Risk. 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.

Term Risk - 15 months. Although this unit investment trust 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.

Volatility Risk. 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.

Operational Risk. 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 style and capitalization characteristics used to describe the stocks are designed to help you understand how they fit into your overall investment plan. Due to changes in the value of the stocks the characteristics may vary over time. In general, growth stocks have high relative price-to-book ratios while value stocks have low relative price-to-book ratios. In determining market capitalization characteristics, we analyze the market capitalizations of the 3,000 largest stocks in the U.S. (excluding foreign securities, ADRs, limited partnerships and regulated investment companies) on a monthly basis. Companies with market capitalizations among the largest 10% are considered Large-Cap securities, the next 20% are considered Mid-Cap securities and the remaining securities are considered Small-Cap securities.

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