    Why Invest in Emerging Markets Bonds?

    Fundamental Strength

    Emerging Markets (EM) typically have growing economies with lower debt and deficits than Developed Markets.

    Asset Class Continues to Grow

    The anticipated strength of EM means that they are an increasingly larger part of the world bond markets.

    Value for Risk

    While riskier than Developed Markets, EM may offer adequate compensation for additional risk and potentially higher yields.

    Historically Low Default Rates

    The prevailing assumption that EM issuers have a greater tendency to default is not supported by historical default rates.

    Why Invest in EMAG?

     

    The Most Comprehensive Exposure to EM Bonds

    EMAG is the only U.S. listed ETF offering exposure to the four major categories of EM bonds: sovereigns and corporates issued in both USD/EUR and Local EM Currencies.

    “No Assembly Required”

    Choosing the appropriate EM bond option may be confusing. EMAG provides an all-in-one choice, with no assembly required. EMAG seeks to replicate as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the price and yield performance of Market Vectors EM Aggregate Bond Index (MVEMAG). This Index is comprised of sovereign bonds and corporate bonds denominated in USD (currency code for U.S. dollars), EUR (euros) or Local EM Currencies, and includes both investment grade and below investment grade rated securities.

    Important Disclosure

    1 All data is as of June 30, 2014. These figures represent averages. Yield to Worst: measures the lowest of either yield-to-maturity or yield-to-call date on every possible call date. Yield to Maturity is the annualized return on a bond held to maturity. Yield to Call is the yield of a bond held until the call date. Effective Duration: measures a bond's sensitivity to interest rate changes that reflects the change in a bond's price given a change in yield. This duration measure is appropriate for bonds with embedded options. Credit Quality: Standard and Poor’s Credit Ratings - credit ratings of A or better are considered to be high credit quality; credit ratings of BBB are good credit quality and the lowest category of investment grade; credit ratings BB and below are lower-rated securities ("high yield"); and credit ratings of CCC or below have high default risk. Equivalent Fitch and Moody’s ratings are BB/Ba, B/B, CCC/Caa, CC/Ca, C/Ca and D/C. There are risks involved with investing in ETFs, including possible loss of money. Shares are not actively managed and are subject to risks similar to those of stocks, including those regarding short selling and margin maintenance requirements. Ordinary brokerage commissions apply. Debt securities carry interest rate and credit risk. Interest rate risk refers to the risk that bond prices generally fall as interest rates rise and vice versa. Credit risk is the risk of loss on an investment due to the deterioration of an issuer's financial health. The Fund’s underlying securities may be subject to call risk, which may result in the Fund having to reinvest the proceeds at lower interest rates, resulting in a decline in the Fund’s income. Market Vectors EM Aggregate Bond Index (the "Index") is the exclusive property of Market Vectors Index Solutions GmbH (the "Index Provider"), which has contracted with Solactive AG (the "Calculation Agent ") to calculate the Index. The Calculation Agent is not an adviser for or a fiduciary to any account, fund or ETF managed by Van Eck Associates Corporation. The Calculation Agent is not responsible for any direct, indirect, or consequential damages associated with indicative optimized portfolio values and/or indicative intraday values.

    Principal International and Emerging Markets Risk Factors: Fixed income securities are subject to credit risk and interest rate risk. High yield bonds may be subject to greater risk of loss of income and principal and are likely to be more sensitive to adverse economic changes than higher rated securities. International investing involves additional risks which include greater market volatility, the availability of less reliable financial information, higher transactional and custody costs, taxation by foreign governments, decreased market liquidity and political instability. Changes in currency exchange rates may negatively impact the Fund’s return. Investments in emerging markets securities are subject to elevated risks which include, among others, expropriation, confiscatory taxation, issues with repatriation of investment income, limitations of foreign ownership, political instability, armed conflict and social instability. Investors should be willing to accept a high degree of volatility and the potential of significant loss. Diversification does not assure a profit nor protect against loss. Please see the Market Vectors Emerging Markets Aggregate Bond ETF (the “Fund”) prospectus for full disclosure information.

    The "net asset value" (NAV) of an ETF is determined at the close of each business day, and represents the dollar value of one share of the ETF; it is calculated by taking the total assets of an ETF subtracting total liabilities, and dividing by the total number of shares outstanding. The NAV is not necessarily the same as an ETF's intraday trading value. Investors should not expect to buy or sell shares at NAV. Total returns are based upon closing "market price" (price) of the ETF on the dates listed.

    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 a Fund carefully before investing. To obtain a prospectus and summary prospectus, which contain this and other information, call 888.MKT.VCTR or visit marketvectorsetfs.com/emag. Please read the prospectus and summary prospectus carefully before investing.
