PRINCIPAL INVESTMENT STRATEGIES
 
The Underlying Index is a free-float adjusted, modified capitalization-weighted index intended to measure performance of the investable universe of companies in the “next eleven” countries, as defined by Structured Solutions AG. The next eleven countries include Egypt, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Iran, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, the Philippines, South Korea, Turkey and Vietnam. The Underlying Index is comprised of common stocks, ADRs and GDRs of selected companies globally that are domiciled or have their main business operations in these countries or that generate at least 50% of their revenues from these countries. Only shares open to foreign ownership by U.S investors are eligible for inclusion in the Underlying Index and as a result Iran is not currently included in the Underlying Index by the Index Provider. As of January 3, 2011 the three largest stocks were Orascom Construction, Astra International and Samsung Electronics. 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 uses 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 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 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.
 
Correlation: Correlation is the extent to which the values of different types of investments move in tandem with one another in response to changing economic and market conditions.  An index is a theoretical financial calculation, while the Fund is an actual investment portfolio. The performance of the Fund and the Underlying Index may vary somewhat due to transaction costs, asset valuations, foreign currency valuations, market impact, corporate actions (such as mergers and spin-offs), legal restrictions or limitations, illiquid or unavailable securities, and timing variances.
