The Vietnam ETF seeks to replicate as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the price and yield performance of the Market Vectors Vietnam Index. The Index provides exposure to publicly traded companies that, predominantly, are domiciled and primarily listed in Vietnam and which generate at least 50% of their revenues from Vietnam. The Index also includes non-Vietnamese companies that generate, or are expected to generate, at least 50% of their revenues from Vietnam, or that demonstrate a significant and/or dominant position in the Vietnamese market and are expected to grow. As such, the Fund is subject to the risks of investing in this country.
