economic, business or political developments affecting real estate could have a
major effect on the value of the Fund’s investments.
Interest Rate Risk
REITs are subject to significant interest rate risk. When the general level of
interest rates goes up, the value of a mortgage REIT’s investment in fixed rate
obligations goes down. When the general level of interest rates goes down, the
value of a mortgage REIT’s investment in fixed rate obligations goes up.
typically use leverage and many are highly leveraged, which exposes them to
REITs receive principal and interest payments from the owners of the mortgaged
properties. Accordingly, mortgage REITs are subject to the credit risk of the
borrowers to whom they extend credit.
REITs are subject to prepayment risk, which is the risk that borrowers may
prepay their mortgage loans at faster than expected rates. Prepayment rates generally increase when
interest rates fall and decrease when interest rates rise. These faster than expected payments may
adversely affect a mortgage REIT’s profitability because the mortgage REIT may
be forced to replace investments that have been redeemed or repaid early with
other investments having a lower yield.
1. 30-Day SEC Yield is a standard calculation developed by the Securities and Exchange Commission that allows for fairer comparisons among bond funds. It is based on the most recent 30-day period. This yield figure reflects the interest earned during the period after deducting the fund’s expenses for the period.
2. Distribution Yield is calculated by annualizing the most recent income distribution and dividing that by the sum of the most recent NAV and any capital gain distributions made over the past twelve months.
Yield information reflects temporary waivers of expenses and/or fees. Yields would have been reduced had these fees/expenses been included.
Investments in mortgage REITs are exposed to the risks specific to the real estate market as well as the risks that relate specifically to the way in which mortgage REITs are organized and operated which include, among others, credit risk, interest rate risk, leverage risk, prepayment risk and U.S. federal tax requirements. Investors should be willing to accept a high degree of volatility and the potential of significant loss.

The “Net Asset Value” (NAV) of a Market Vectors exchange-traded fund (ETF) is determined at the close of each business day, and represents the dollar value of one share of the fund; it is calculated by taking the total assets of the fund, subtracting total liabilities, and dividing by the total number of shares outstanding. The NAV is not necessarily the same as the ETF’s intraday trading value. Market Vectors ETF investors should not expect to buy or sell shares at NAV.
Fund shares are not individually redeemable and will be issued and redeemed at their NAV only through certain authorized broker-dealers in large, specified blocks of shares called “creation units” and otherwise can be bought and sold only through exchange trading. Creation units are issued and redeemed principally in kind. Shares may trade at a premium or discount to their NAV in the secondary market.
Investing involves substantial risk and high volatility, including possible loss of principal. Bonds and bond funds will decrease in value as interest rates rise. An investor should consider the investment objective, risks, charges and expenses of the Fund carefully before investing.
