Guggenheim Announces Change to Automatic Conversion of C Class to A Class Shares From 10 Years to 8 Years
Effective March 1, 2021, C Class shares of each Guggenheim and Rydex mutual fund will automatically convert to an A Class share of the same fund on or about the 10th day of the month following the 8-year anniversary date of the purchase of the C Class shares. This conversion will be executed without any sales charge, fee, or other charge. After the conversion takes place, the shares will be subject to the expense of A Class shares. For additional information, shareholders should call Guggenheim Client Services at 800.820.0888 and Financial Professionals should call 800.345.7999.
Important Information Regarding C Class Trading Groups When C Class shares reach their 8-year anniversary of purchase, they will automatically convert to A Class shares in a new A Class account that is outside the existing trading group. Financial Professionals will be able to view the new A Class share accounts through their TradeRydex log-in. However, trades placed for a C Class trading group will not be executed in the new A Class accounts. Trades in C Class and A Class accounts can only be done separately. To establish a new A Class trading group, Financial Professionals must contact Guggenheim Client Services at 800.820.0888.
