Principal Investment Strategies
Because the value of the Index is not computed as of the close of the U.S. securities markets due to differences in trading hours between U.S. and foreign markets, correlation to the Index will be measured by comparing the daily change in the Fund’s net asset value per share to the performance of one or more U.S. exchange traded securities or instruments that reflect the values of the securities underlying the Index as of the close of the U.S. securities markets.
The Fund invests in equity securities and derivatives that ProShare Advisors believes, in combination, should have similar daily performance characteristics as twice (200%) the daily return of the Index. The Index is a free-float-adjusted market capitalization-weighted index that is designed to measure the equity market performance of the developed markets in the eastern Pacific region, excluding Japan. The Index is divided into large- and mid-cap segments and targets approximately 85% of free float-adjusted market capitalization of the region. As of March 31, 2010, the Index consists of the following 4 developed market countries/cities: Australia, Hong Kong, New Zealand and Singapore. As of March 31, 2010, the Index included companies with capitalizations between $840 million and $134.3 billion. The average capitalization of the companies comprising the Index was approximately $8.7 billion. The Index is published under the Bloomberg ticker symbol “MXPFJ.” Assets of the Fund not invested in equity securities or derivatives will typically be held in money market instruments.
