Claymore/Sabrient Defender ETF (DEF)

Overview

The “Fund” seeks investment results that correspond generally to the performance, before the Fund’s fees and expenses, of an equity index called the Sabrient Defensive Equity Index (the “Defensive Equity Index” or “Index”). The Fund will normally invest at least 90% of its total assets in common stock, American depositary receipts ("ADRs") and master limited partnerships ("MLPs") that comprise the Index. Claymore Advisors, LLC (the “Investment Adviser”) seeks a correlation over time of 0.95 or better between the Fund’s performance and the performance of the Index. A figure of 1.00 would represent perfect correlation.

The Fund, using a low cost “passive” or “indexing” investment approach, seeks to replicate, before fees and expenses, the performance of the Defensive Equity Index. The Index is comprised of approximately 100 stocks selected, based on investment and other criteria, from a broad universe of U.S.-traded stocks, including MLPs, and ADRs. The universe of potential Index constituents includes approximately 1,000 listed companies, generally with market capitalizations in excess of $1 billion. [1]
