Fund Objective

Seeks investment results that correspond (before fees and expenses) to the price and yield performance of the FTSE Beyond BRICs Index. Prior to October 25, 2013, the fund tracked the Indxx Beyond BRICs Index.

Index Description

The FTSE Beyond BRICs Index is designed to represent the performance of a diversified basket of 90 liquid companies in Emerging and Frontier markets ex Brazil, Russia, India, China (BRIC), Taiwan and Argentina as defined by FTSE’s Country Classification System. The index is market capitalization weighted, and will generally provide exposure up to 75% emerging markets and 25% frontier markets.

Reasons To Invest
  • Well positioned for possible future growth: Beyond BRIC countries are becoming a more important force in the global economy, with a rising share of world equity market capitalization and a higher labor force growth rate than the BRICs and developed markets (Source: World Bank data as of 2012, UNCTAD 2013).
  • Portfolio diversification potential: While correlations between the U.S. and BRIC equity markets have increased in recent years, the smaller Beyond BRIC countries have been less tied to U.S. stock performance(Source: MSCI, Bloomberg as of 12/31/13). This gives the Beyond BRICs strong diversification potential within a larger portfolio. Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against loss.
  • Targeted exposure to Beyond BRIC countries: This fund provides integrated emerging and frontier markets exposure outside of Brazil, Russia, India and China (BRIC). As a result, it may serve as a strategic, long-term holding for a developing markets allocation.

*EGA has entered into a written fee waiver agreement to waive its advisory fee to 0.58% of the Fund's average daily net assets without which the performance would have been lower. The Fee Waiver Agreement will remain in effect and will be contractually binding for two years from October 1, 2013.

Effective October 25, 2013, the investment objective for the EGShares Beyond BRICs ETF is revised as follows: "The Fund seeks investment results that correspond (before fees and expenses) to the price and yield performance of the FTSE Beyond BRICs Index." The FTSE Beyond BRICs Index is a capitalization-weighted stock market index comprised of leading developing market companies that FTSE International Limited determines to be representative of all industries in developing market countries, excluding Brazil, Russia, India, China and Taiwan. 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.
