EGShares Renames High Income/Low Beta Emerging Markets ETF EGShares Low Volatility Emerging Markets Dividend ETF

Emerging Global Advisors, an asset management company focused exclusively on emerging markets and the sub-advisor to the EGShares family of exchange-traded funds (ETFs), announced today that it has renamed its EGShares High Income/Low Beta ETF to the EGShares Low Volatility Emerging Markets Dividend ETF. The fund’s NYSE Arca ticker “HILO” remains unchanged, as does the fund’s methodology.

HILO, a passively managed ETF composed of low volatility stocks, is designed to provide high dividend income but have lower volatility than the MSCI Emerging Markets Index. The fund seeks to replicate the INDXX Low Volatility Emerging Markets Dividend Index, a composite of 30 stocks from 13 emerging markets countries, which has a yield of 6.79 percent iii. HILO does not use options, swaps, or other derivatives in its portfolio.

“HILO is the first emerging markets equity ETF based on an index whose design addresses both dividend yield and volatility,” said Robert C. Holderith, EGA’s founder and president. “We renamed the fund EGShares Low Volatility Emerging Markets Dividend ETF to address the conversation most pertinent to investors.”

Index returns do not represent actual ETF performance and are for illustration purposes only.

Past performance is no guarantee of future results. The fund is new and therefore does not have a performance history of its own. Portfolio yield can change as fund prices change. Companies can discontinue, lower or raise future dividend payouts. You cannot invest directly in an index.

Investors should carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the Funds before investing.
