Market Linked Trusts

AAM has leveraged its experience as a leading sponsor of Unit Investment Trusts (“UITs”) to develop its new Market Linked Trusts (“MLTs”) which combine features of both Structured Products and UITs to offer investors unique investment opportunities with custom risk and return characteristics.

AAM MLTs are UITs designed to provide investors with participation linked to the performance of an underlying reference asset. This reference asset can be a basket of securities, such as publicly traded stocks or Exchange-Traded Funds.

Like all UITs, AAM MLTs are daily redeemable based on Net Asset Value (“NAV”). The trusts investment strategy is designed to achieve its investment objective over the life of the trust. If an investor redeems prior to the termination date, he or she may lose money. Also, MLTs generally hold exchange listed options which are guaranteed by the Option Clearing Corp (“OCC”). There is no guarantee that a liquid secondary market will be maintained for the FLEX options used as part of the trust's strategy. If there is a disruption in the options markets, and the Options Clearing Corporation cannot guarantee its obligations, this will adversely affect the trust and an investor can lose money.

The distribution rate paid by the trust may be higher or lower than the amount shown above due to factors including, but not limited to, changes in the price of trust units, changes (including reductions) in distributions paid by issuers, changes in actual trust expenses and sales of securities in the portfolio. There is no guarantee that the issuers of the securities included in the trust will pay any distributions in the future. The Historical 12- Month Distribution Rate of Trust Holdings is calculated by taking the weighted average of the regular income distributions paid by the securities included in the trust’s portfolio over the 12 months preceding the trust’s date of deposit reduced to account for the effects of trust fees and expenses. The percentage shown is based on the current offer price during the initial offering period. This historical rate is for illustrative purposes only and is not indicative of amounts that will actually be distributed by the trust.

* Information labeled “Fee-Based Account” provides information pertaining to units purchased through registered investment advisers, certified financial planners or registered broker-dealers who in each case either charge investor accounts periodic fees for brokerage services, financial planning, investment advisory or asset management services, or provide such services in connection with an investment account for which a comprehensive “wrap fee” charge is imposed. You should consult your financial advisor to determine whether you can benefit from these accounts and whether your unit purchases are eligible for this discount. To purchase units in these accounts, your financial advisor must purchase units designated with one of the Fee Account CUSIP numbers, if available. The amounts shown are different from what would be applicable for units purchased in other accounts (i.e. “Commission-Based Accounts”) not eligible for this discount. See your prospectus and consult your financial advisor for more information about eligibility and applicability of the Fee-Based Account discount.
