Global X Files For Global X Czech Republic ETF
Global X has filed paperwork with the SEC for a “Global X Czech Republic ETF.” The Global X Czech Republic ETF (“Fund”) seeks to provide investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield performance, before fees and expenses, of the Solactive Czech Republic Index. The Solactive Czech Republic Index is designed to reflect the performance of Czech companies. The index is comprised of companies that are domiciled or have their main business operations in Czech Republic. The stocks are screened for liquidity and weighted according to free-float market capitalization. The index is maintained by Structured Solutions AG.
They did not specify a trading symbol or expense ratio in the initial filing.
PRINCIPAL INVESTMENT STRATEGIES
The Fund will invest at least 80% of its total assets in the securities of the Underlying Index and in ADRs and GDRs based on the securities in the Underlying Index. The fund will invest at least 80% of its total assets in securities that are economically tied to the Czech Republic.
The Underlying Index tracks the performance of the [ ] largest and most liquid companies in the Czech Republic. As of [ ], 2011, the Underlying Index had [ ] constituents, all of which are foreign companies. The three largest stocks were [ ], [ ] and [ ]. The Fund’s investment objective and Underlying Index may be changed without shareholder approval. Shareholders will be given 60 days’ prior notice of any such change.
The Underlying Index is sponsored by an organization (“Index Provider”) that is independent of the Fund and Global X Management Company LLC, the investment adviser for the Fund (“Adviser”). The Index Provider determines the relative weightings of the securities in the Underlying Index and publishes information regarding the market value of the Underlying Index. The Fund’s Index Provider is Structured Solutions AG.
The Adviser will use a “passive” or indexing approach to try to achieve the Fund’s investment objective. Unlike many investment companies, the Fund does not try to “beat” the Underlying Index and does not seek temporary defensive positions when markets decline or appear overvalued.
The Fund will use a replication strategy. A replication strategy is an indexing strategy that involves investing in the securities of the Underlying Index in approximately the same proportions as in the Underlying Index. However, the Fund may utilize a representative sampling strategy with respect to the Underlying Index when a replication strategy might be detrimental to shareholders, such as when there are practical difficulties or substantial costs involved in compiling a portfolio of equity securities to follow the Underlying Index, in instances in which a security in the Underlying Index becomes temporarily illiquid, unavailable or less liquid, or as a result of legal restrictions or limitations (such as tax diversification requirements) that apply to the Fund but not the Underlying Index.
