Read an ETF's prospectus and summary prospectus (if available) carefully before investing. It contains the ETF's investment objectives, risks, charges, expenses and other information, which should be considered carefully before investing.

ETFs may not be suitable for all investors. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate so that when shares are redeemed, they may be worth more or less than original cost. Most investors will also incur customary brokerage commissions when buying or selling shares of an ETF. Investments in securities and derivatives, in general, are subject to market risks that may cause their prices to fluctuate over time. ETF Shares may trade below their net asset value ("NAV"). The NAV of shares will fluctuate with changes in the market value of an ETF's holdings. In addition, there can be no assurance that an active trading market for shares will develop or be maintained. Tracking error risk refers to the risk that the investment adviser may not be able to cause the ETF's performance to match or correlate to that of the ETF's underlying index, either on a daily or aggregate basis. Tracking error risk may cause the ETF's performance to be less than you expect.

Guggenheim Investments represents the investment management businesses of Guggenheim Partners, LLC ("GP"), which includes Security Investors, LLC ("SI") and Guggenheim Funds Investment Advisors, LLC ("GFIA"), the investment advisers to the referenced funds. Guggenheim Distributors, LLC and Guggenheim Funds Distributors, LLC are affiliated with GP, SI and GFIA.
