Preferred securities are selected largely by utilizing specialized selection criteria, and ETFs are selected following a laddered, target-maturity, fixed income focus. The allocation percentage to these ETFs at the time of their original selection is determined based on the outlook for preferred securities in general, over the life of each series of the Trust.
"The Preferreds Plus Trust is just another example of SmartTrust® bringing a product to market when the strategy has value in the market and demand from the marketplace," added Mr. Mahn.
The new strategy brings the total number of SmartTrust® UIT strategies currently available for purchase in the primary market to 24.
