Global Progressive Transportation Portfolio ETF (PTRP)


The PowerShares Global Progressive Transportation Portfolio (Fund) is based on the Wilder NASDAQ OMX Global Energy Efficient Transport IndexSM (Index). The Fund will normally invest at least 90% of its total assets in securities that comprise the Index and ADRs and GDRs based on securities in the Index. The Index includes global companies engaged in businesses that the Index provider believes stand to benefit substantially from a societal transition toward using cleaner, less costly and more efficient means of transportation. These companies focus on technologies for utilization of greener, more-efficient sources of energy for transportation. These technologies are designed to improve energy efficiency and reduce the costs for fuel or time in transit and include renewable energy harvesting or production, energy conversion, energy storage, improvements in energy efficiency, power delivery, energy conservation and monitoring of energy information. The Index is rebalanced quarterly using a modified, market-cap-weighted methodology. [1]
