Global X has announced that they will begin trading The Global X Top Guru Holdings Index ETF (NYSEARCA:GURU) Tuesday, June 5, 2012. The Global X Top Guru Holdings Index ETF (“Fund”) seeks investment results that correspond generally to


the price and yield performance, before fees and expenses, of the Top Guru Holdings Index. The Top Guru Holdings Index is comprised of the top U.S. listed equity positions reported on Form 13F by a select group of entities that Structured Solutions AG characterizes as hedge funds. Hedge funds are selected from a pool of thousands of privately offered pooled investment vehicles based on the size of their reported equity holdings and the efficacy of replicating their publicly disclosed positions. Hedge funds must have minimum reported holdings of $500 million in their form 13F to be considered for the index. Additional filters are applied to eliminate hedge funds that have high turnover rates for equity holdings. Only hedge funds with concentrated top holdings are included in the selection process.

Once the hedge fund pool has been determined, the Index Provider utilizes 13F filings to compile the top stock holding from each of these hedge funds. The index is calculated as a total return index and adjusted quarterly. The stocks are screened for liquidity and equal weighted. The Index is maintained by Structured Solutions AG.

Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses: 0.75%

PRINCIPAL INVESTMENT STRATEGIES

The Fund invests at least 80% of its total assets in the securities of the Underlying Index and in ADRs based on the securities in the Underlying Index. The Fund’s 80% investment policy is non-fundamental and requires 60 days’ prior written notice to shareholders before it can be changed.

The Underlying Index is comprised of the top U.S. listed equity positions reported on Form 13F by a select group of entities that Structured Solutions AG (the “Index Provider”) characterizes as hedge funds.

Hedge funds are selected from a pool of thousands of privately offered pooled investment vehicles based on the size of their reported equity holdings and the efficacy of replicating their publicly disclosed positions. Hedge funds must have minimum reported holdings of $500 million in their form 13F to be considered for the index. Additional filters are applied to eliminate hedge funds that have high turnover rates for equity holdings. Only hedge funds with a concentrated top holding are included in the selection process. As of April 30, 2012, there were 68 hedge funds used to select their top holdings for the Underlying Index.

Once the hedge fund pool has been determined, the Index Provider utilizes 13F filings to compile the top stock holding from each of these hedge funds. The stocks are screened for liquidity, equal weighted, and rebalanced quarterly following the 13F filing timeline. As of April 30, 2012, the Underlying Index had 51 constituents.

The Index Provider 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 Fund’s investment objective and Underlying Index may be changed without shareholder approval.

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 generally 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.
