Claymore/AlphaShares China Real Estate ETF (TAO)

Overview

The "Fund" seeks investment results that correspond generally to the performance, before the Fund’s fees and expenses, of an equity index called the AlphaShares China Real Estate Index (the “Index”). The Index is designed to measure and monitor the performance of publicly issued common equity securities of publicly-traded companies and real estate investment trusts ("REITs") which are open to foreign ownership and derive a majority of their revenues from real estate development, management and/or ownership of property in China or the Special Administrative Regions of China such as Hong Kong and Macau. The Fund will normally invest at least 90% of its total assets in common stock, American depositary receipts (“ADRs”), American depositary shares (“ADSs”), global depositary receipts (“GDRs”) and international depositary receipts (“IDRs”) that comprise the Index. Claymore Advisors, LLC (the "Investment Adviser") seeks a correlation over time of 0.95 or better between the Fund’s performance and the performance of the Index. A figure of 1.00 would represent perfect correlation.

The Fund, using a low cost “passive” or “indexing” investment approach, will seek to replicate, before expenses, the performance of the AlphaShares China Real Estate Index. The Index is designed to measure and monitor the performance of the investable universe of publicly-traded companies and REITs deriving a majority of their revenues from real estate development, management and/or ownership of property in China or the Special Administrative Regions of China, such as Hong Kong and Macau. The Index was created by AlphaShares, Inc. (“AlphaShares” or the “Index Provider”) and is maintained by Standard & Poor’s (the “Index Administrator”). The Index methodology is published at www.alphashares.com. The Index will include equity securities of companies of all capitalizations, as defined by AlphaShares. AlphaShares does not guarantee the inclusion of all relevant securities in the Index. [1]
