With nearly 97% of all emerging market (EM) equity exchange traded fund (ETF) assets following broad benchmarks,1 many core EM portfolios are dominated by countries and sectors that are further along the economic development path. EGShares Beyond BRICs (Ticker: BBRC) and Emerging Market Domestic Demand (Ticker: EMDD) ETFs offer differentiated emerging market core portfolios.

Investors should carefully consider the Fund's investment objectives, risk factors and charges and expenses before investing. This and other information can be found in the Fund's prospectus, which may be obtained by calling + 1 888 800 4347 or by visiting the fund's website www.egshares.com to view or download a prospectus. Read the prospectus carefully before investing. Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal.
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. The value of an investment denominated in a foreign currency could change significantly as foreign currencies strengthen or weaken relative to the U.S. dollar.
These funds are new and therefore do not have performance history of their own.
Shares are not individually redeemable and owners of the shares may acquire those shares from the Funds and tender those shares for redemption to the Fund in Creation Units only, typically consisting of aggregations of 50,000 shares.
These funds are non-diversified and, as a result, may have greater volatility than diversified funds. These funds will concentrate their investments in issuers of one or more particular industries to the same extent as the underlying index. Concentration risk results from maintaining exposure to issuers conducting business in a specific industry. In certain circumstances, these funds might not be able to dispose of certain holdings quickly or at prices that represent true market value preventing them from tracking the underlying index. As ETFs, fund shares are not individually redeemable securities. There is no assurance that an active trading market for fund shares will develop or be maintained.
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.
