Fund Objective

Seeks investment results that correspond (before fees and expenses) to the price and yield performance of the S&P Emerging Markets Domestic Demand Index.

Index Description

The S&P Emerging Markets Domestic Demand Index is a 50-stock free-float market capitalization-weighted index designed to measure the performance of companies in emerging markets that are tied to domestic demand, specifically those in consumer staples, consumer discretionary, telecommunications services, health care and the utilities sectors.

Reasons To Invest
  • Targeted exposure to domestic demand sectors: EMDD offers exposure to five sectors we believe will benefit from growth in domestic demand - consumer staples, consumer discretionary, telecommunications services, health care and utilities - with exposure across 12 emerging markets
  • Poised for future growth: Emerging markets represent nearly five times the estimated consumption growth of developed markets (Source: McKinsey & Company, "Winning the $30 trillion decathlon", 2012)
  • Portfolio diversification potential: Sectors driven by domestic demand, rather than export growth or global interest rates, have historically contributed less volatility, greater risk-adjusted returns and less severe draw downs (Source: MSCI, Bloomberg as of 6/30/2015). Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against loss.

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.

Returns over one year are annualized.

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.
