The Market Vectors Africa Index ETF, Market Vectors Egypt Index ETF, and Market Vectors Emerging Markets Local Currency Bond ETF are subject to a high degree of risk, including those associated with less reliable financial information, higher costs, taxation, decreased liquidity, less stringent reporting, and foreign currency risks. Special risks particular to emerging market investments include expropriation, political instability, economic impacts of armed conflict, civil war and severe social instability, less developed capital markets, lower market capitalization, lower trading volume, illiquidity, inflation, greater price fluctuations, uncertainty regarding the existence of trading markets, politically controlled access to trading markets, unsettled securities laws, and trade barriers.
