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.
