Product Details

The PowerShares India Portfolio (Fund) is based on the Indus India Index (Index). The Fund will normally invest at least 90% of its total assets in securities that comprise the Index and American depositary receipts based on the securities in the Index. The Index is designed to replicate the Indian equity markets as a whole, through a group of 50 Indian stocks selected from a universe of the largest companies listed on two major Indian exchanges. The India Index has 50 constituents, spread among the following sectors: Information Technology, Health Services, Financial Services, Heavy Industry, Consumer Products and Other. The India Index is supervised by an index committee, comprised of representatives of the Index Provider and members of academia specializing in emerging markets. The Fund and the Index are rebalanced and reconstituted quarterly in January, April, July and October.

Fund Inception: 03/05/2008

Shareholders may pay more than net asset value when they buy Fund shares and receive less than net asset value when they sell those shares, because shares are bought and sold at current market prices. Performance data quoted represents past performance, which is not a guarantee of future results.

 Risk & Other Information

Typically, security classifications used in calculating allocation tables are as of the last trading day of the previous month.

There are risks involved with investing in ETFs, including possible loss of money. Shares are not actively managed and are subject to risks similar to those of stocks, including those regarding short selling and margin maintenance requirements. Ordinary brokerage commissions apply. The Fund's return may not match the return of the Underlying Index.

The Fund is considered non-diversified and may be subject to greater risks than a diversified fund.

Indian securities have additional risks, including exchange-rate changes, decreased market liquidity, political instability and taxation by foreign governments. There may be instances in which the Underlying Index must liquidate a security because the security has exceeded the limitation of foreign ownership set by the Index's methodology. This liquidation in the index may occur at an inopportune time which may result in a significant variation between the Index's return and that of the Fund.

Investments focused in a particular industry are subject to greater risk, and are more greatly impacted by market volatility, than more diversified investments.

American Depositary Receipts (ADRs) involve many of the same risks as those associated with direct investment in foreign securities. In addition, the underlying issuers of certain depositary receipts, particularly unsponsored or unregistered depositary receipts, are under no obligation to distribute shareholder communications to the holders of such receipts or to pass through to them any voting rights with respect to the deposited securities.

The dollar value of the fund's foreign investments will be affected by changes in the exchange rates between the dollar and the currencies in which those investments are traded.

A natural or other disaster could occur in a geographic region in which the Fund invests, which could adversely impact the Fund's investments in the affected region.

Equity risk is the risk that the value of equity securities, including common stocks, may fall due to both changes in general economic and political conditions that impact the market as a whole, as well as factors that directly relate to a specific company or its industry.

The fund may engage in frequent trading of its portfolio securities in connection with the rebalancing or adjustment of the Underlying Index.

The Adviser is registered as a foreign institutional investor (FII) with the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI), and the Subsidiary is registered as a sub account with the SEBI to obtain certain benefits relating to the Subsidiary's ability to make and dispose of investments. There can be no assurances that the Indian regulatory authorities will continue to grant such qualifications, and the loss of such qualifications could adversely impact the ability of the Subsidiary to make and dispose of investments in India.

Global Depositary Receipts involve the same risks as those associated with ADRs. They are also subject to currency, political, economic and market risks because their values depend on the performance of non-dollar denominated underlying foreign securities.

As a developing country jurisdiction, Mauritius may be subject to political and/or economic volatility from time to time, which may make its legal and political structures more uncertain than the comparable structures in developed countries. Such instability could adversely impact the Subsidiary.

Investing in securities of small and medium-sized companies may involve greater risk than is customarily associated with investing in large companies.

Unlike most ETFs, the Fund currently intends to effect redemptions principally for cash and partially in-kind, rather than primarily in-kind redemptions because of the nature of the Fund's investments. As such, investments in Shares may be less tax efficient than investments in conventional ETFs.

The MSCI India Index ND is an unmanaged index considered representative of Indian stocks. The index is computed using the net return, which withholds applicable taxes for non-resident investors.

The Global Industry Classification Standard was developed by and is the exclusive property and a service mark of MSCI, Inc. and Standard & Poor's.
