Market Vectors ChinaAMC SME-ChiNext ETF (“the Fund”) is subject to risks which include, among others, those associated with investments in Chinese securities, particularly A-Shares, adviser and sub-adviser risk, risk of the RQFII regime, political and economic instability, inflation, confiscatory taxation, nationalization, expropriation, and market volatility, all of which may adversely affect the Fund. Because the Fund will not be able to primarily invest directly in A-shares in excess of the Sub-Advisor’s RQFII quota, the size of the Fund’s direct investment in A-shares may be limited. Foreign and emerging markets investments are subject to risks, which include changes in economic and political conditions, foreign currency fluctuations, changes in foreign regulations, changes in currency exchange rates, unstable governments, and limited trading capacity which may make these investments volatile in price or difficult to trade. Small and medium-capitalization companies may be subject to elevated risks. The Fund’s assets may be concentrated in a particular sector and may be subject to more risk than investments in a diverse group of sectors.
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. An investor should consider the investment objective, risks, charges and expenses of the Fund carefully before investing.
