Claymore Files For A Claymore BulletShares 2015 Corporate Bond ETF (BSCF)

Claymore has filed paperwork with the SEC for a “Claymore BulletShares 2015 Corporate Bond ETF.” This new fund will trade under the symbol (BSCF). The Fund seeks investment results that correspond generally to the performance, before the Fund’s fees and expenses, of an investment grade corporate bond index called the BulletShares USD Corporate Bond 2015 Index (the “2015 Index”).

Principal Investment Strategies

The Fund, using a low cost “passive” or “indexing” investment approach, will seek to replicate, before the Fund’s fees and expenses, the performance of the 2015 Index. The 2015 Index is a rules-based index comprised of, as of April 30, 2010, approximately 138 investment grade corporate bonds with effective maturities in the year 2015.

The Fund has a designated year of maturity of 2015 and will terminate on or about December 31, 2015. In connection with such termination, the Fund will make a cash distribution to then-current shareholders of its net assets after making appropriate provisions for any liabilities of the Fund. The Fund does not seek to return any predetermined amount at maturity. The Fund will normally invest at least 80% of its total assets in component securities that comprise the 2015 Index and investments that have economic characteristics that are substantially identical to the economic characteristics of the component securities that comprise the Index. In the last year of operation, when the bonds held by the Fund mature, the Fund’s portfolio will transition to cash and cash equivalents, including without limitation U.S. Treasury Bills and investment grade commercial paper. The Fund has adopted a policy that requires the Fund to provide shareholders with at least 60 days notice prior to any material change in this policy or the 2015 Index. The Fund will terminate on or about the date above without requiring additional approval by the Trust’s Board of Trustees (the “Board”) or Fund shareholders. The Board may change the termination date to an earlier or later date if a majority of the Board determines the change to be in the best interest of the Fund. The Board of Trustees of the Trust may change the Fund’s investment strategy and other policies without shareholder approval, except as otherwise indicated.

The Fund expects to use a sampling approach in seeking to achieve its investment objective. Sampling means that the Investment Adviser uses quantitative analysis to select securities from the Index universe to obtain a representative sample of securities that resemble the Index in terms of key risk factors, performance attributes and other characteristics. These include maturity, credit quality, sector and other financial characteristics of securities. The quantity of holdings in the Fund will be based on a number of factors, including asset size of the Fund. However, the Fund may use replication to achieve its objective if practicable. There may also be instances in which the Investment Adviser may choose to overweight another security in the Index, purchase (or sell) securities not in the Index which the Investment Adviser believes are appropriate to substitute for one or more Index components, or utilize various combinations of other available investment techniques, in seeking to accurately track the Index. In addition, from time to time securities are added to or removed from the Index. The Fund may sell securities that are represented in the Index or purchase securities that are not yet represented in the Index in anticipation of their removal from or addition to the Index.
