A supplement to the EGShares Low Volatility Emerging Markets Dividend ETF prospectus was filed November 24, 2014. Effective January 26, 2015, the Fund's name will change to the EGShares EM Quality Dividend ETF and the investment objective for the EGShares Low Volatility Emerging Markets Dividend ETF (Ticker: HILO) will be revised as follows: "The Fund seeks investment results that correspond (before fees and expenses) to the price and yield performance of the EGAI Emerging Markets Quality Dividend Index (the "HILO Underlying Index")." The HILO Underlying Index is designed to represent a portfolio of approximately 50 companies in emerging markets that each has a higher dividend yield than the average company in the EGAI Developing Markets Universe.

Effective February 3, 2014, the investment objective for the EGShares Low Volatility Emerging Markets Dividend ETF was revised as follows: "The Fund seeks investment results that correspond (before fees and expenses) to the price and yield performance of the FTSE Emerging All Cap ex Taiwan Low Volatility Dividend Index (the "HILO Underlying Index")." Please review the prospectus for details.

Emerging market investments involve risk of capital loss from unfavorable fluctuation in currency values, from differences in generally accepted accounting principles, from economic or political instability in other nations or increased volatility and lower trading volume. This fund will concentrate its investments in issuers of one or more particular industries to the same extent that its Underlying Index is so concentrated and to the extent permitted by applicable regulatory guidance. Concentration risk results from maintaining exposure to issuers conducting business in a specific industry. Small cap and mid cap companies generally will have greater volatility in price than the stocks of large companies due to limited product lines or resources or a dependency upon a particular market niche.
