Fund Objective

Seeks investment results that correspond (before taxes and fees) to the price and yield performance of the Dow Jones Emerging Markets Consumer Titans 30 Index.

Index Description

The Dow Jones Emerging Markets Consumer Titans 30 Index is designed to measure the stock perfor­mance of 30 leading emerging market companies in the consumer goods and consumer services industries as defined by the Industry Classification Benchmark (ICB). Stocks are selected to the index based on rankings by float-adjusted market capitalization, revenue and net profit.

Reasons To Invest
  • Forward-looking growth potential: Consumer sectors may stand to benefit as many emerging economies transition from an export-led growth model to one focused on domestic spending.
  • Favorable demographic trends: Fueled by a growing labor force and rising middle class, annual consumption in developing markets is expected to more than double by 2025 to $30 trillion. (Source: McKinsey & Company, "Winning the $30 trillion decathlon," August 2012.)
  • Targeted exposure to the Emerging Markets (EM) consumer: This Fund offers exposure to the largest consumer goods and consumer services companies domiciled in developing markets. These companies derive most of their revenues from EM sales, providing truer access to the EM consumer theme.

Performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance does not guarantee future results. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when sold or redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. Current performance data may be higher or lower than actual data quoted. For the most current month-end performance data please call + 1 888 800 4347.

Market price returns are based on the midpoint of the bid/ask spread at 4 pm ET and do not represent the returns an investor would receive if shares were traded at other times.

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.

The Morningstar Rating® is provided for those exchange-traded funds ("ETFs") with at least a three-year history. Ratings are based on the ETF’s Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure, which accounts for variation in monthly performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. An ETF's riskadjusted return includes a brokerage commission estimate. This estimate is intended to reflect what an average investor would pay when buying or selling an ETF. PLEASE NOTE, this estimate is subject to change and the actual brokerage commission an investor pays may be higher or lower than this estimate. Morningstar compares each ETF's risk-adjusted return to the open-end mutual fund rating breakpoints for that category. Consistent with the open-end mutual fund ratings, the top 10% of ETFs in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The overall rating for an ETF is based on a weighted average of the time-period ratings (e.g., the ETF's 3, 5, and 10 year rating). The determination of an ETF's rating does not affect the retail open end mutual fund data published by Morningstar. Morningstar Rating is for the ETF share class only; other classes may have different performance characteristics. As of 3/31/14 EGShares Emerging Markets Consumer ETF was rated 5 stars out of 424 U.S.-domiciled Diversified Emerging Markets ETFs and open-end funds for the overall and three-year periods.
