The complete application may be obtained for a fee at the Commission’s Public Reference Branch, 100 F Street, NE., Washington, DC 20549–0102 (tel. 202–551–5850). Applicants’ Representations 1. Each Trust is an open-end management investment company registered under the Act and organized as a Delaware statutory trust. The Trusts are organized as series funds with multiple series. The Adviser, an investment adviser registered under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 (the ‘‘Advisers Act’’), will serve as investment adviser to the New Funds. The Adviser may retain sub-advisers (‘‘Sub-Advisers’’) to manage the assets of a New Fund. Any Sub-Adviser will be registered under the Advisers Act. The Distributor, a broker-dealer registered under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Exchange Act’’), will serve as the principal underwriter of the New Funds’ shares. 2. Each Trust is currently permitted to offer series based on equity securities indices (the ‘‘Equity Funds,’’ and together with the New Funds and the Future Funds (defined below), the ‘‘Funds’’) in reliance on the Prior Order. Applicants seek to amend the Prior Order to permit the Trusts to offer the New Funds that, except as described in the application, would operate in a manner identical to the existing Equity Funds that are subject to the Prior Order. 3. Each New Fund will invest in fixed-income securities (‘‘Portfolio Securities’’) selected to correspond generally to the price and yield performance, before fees and expenses, of a specified securities index (an ‘‘Index’’).2 No entity that creates, compiles, sponsors, or maintains an Index is or will be an affiliated person, as defined in section 2(a)(3) of the Act, or an affiliated person of an affiliated person, of the Trusts, the Adviser, the Distributor or any Sub-Adviser, or promoter to a New Fund. 4. The investment objective of each New Fund will be to provide investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield performance of the relevant Index. The Adviser may fully replicate a New Fund’s relevant Index or use a representative sampling strategy where the New Fund will seek to hold a representative sample of the component securities of the Index. Applicants currently expect that each New Fund will use a sampling technique to track its Index. 5. Under the Prior Order, applicants stated that each Equity Fund would invest at least 90% of its total assets in common stocks that comprise the relevant Index, and may invest up to 10% of its total assets in securities, options and futures not included in its 1 Claymore Exchange-Traded Fund Trust, et al., Investment Company Act Release Nos. 27469 (Aug. 28, 2006) (notice) and 27483 (Sept. 18, 2006) (order). 2 The Indexes for the New Funds are: CPMKTS— The Capital Markets Index, CPMKTB—The Capital Markets Bond Index, and CPMKTL—The Capital Markets Liquidity Index.
