Product Details

The PowerShares Global Listed Private Equity Portfolio (Fund) is based on the Red Rocks Global Listed Private Equity Index (Index). The Fund will normally invest at least 90% of its total assets in securities, which may include American depository receipts and global depository receipts, that comprise the Index. The Index includes securities, ADRs and GDRs of 40 to 75 private equity companies, including business development companies (BDCs), master limited partnerships (MLPs) and other vehicles whose principal business is to invest in, lend capital to or provide services to privately held companies (collectively, listed private equity companies).

Monthly Performance

Market returns are based on the midpoint of the bid/ask spread at 4 p.m. ET and do not represent the returns an investor would receive if shares were traded at other times. Performance data quoted represents past performance, which is not a guarantee of future results. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate, and shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be higher or lower than performance data quoted. After-tax returns reflect the highest federal income tax rate but exclude state and local taxes. Fund performance reflects fee waivers, absent which, performance data quoted would have been lower. After Tax Held and After Tax Sold are based on NAV. Returns less than one year are cumulative.

Fund Inception: 10/24/2006

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.

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.

Investments made by listed private equity companies are generally subject to legal and other restrictions on resale and are less liquid than publicly traded securities. If a listed private equity company in which the Fund invests needs to liquidate its portfolio quickly, it may realize a loss. Furthermore, little public information generally exists for thinly traded companies and investors may not be able to make a fully informed investment decision.

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.

An MLP is an entity receiving partnership taxation treatment under the U.S. Internal Revenue Code, and whose partnership interests or "units" are traded on securities exchanges like shares of corporate stock. Investments in MLP units are subject to certain risks, including tax and management risks.

A significant portion of the Underlying Index is composed of Business Development Corporations (BDCs) or other investment companies. The Fund may not acquire greater than 3% of the total outstanding shares of such companies. As a result, the Fund would be required to use sampling techniques, which could increase the risk of tracking error.

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

Many listed private equity companies invest in subordinated and/or unsecured securities of privately held companies, and may not be rated by a credit rating agency. With investments in debt instruments, there is a risk that the issuer may default on its payments or declare bankruptcy.

Listed private equity companies may have investment portfolios with a relatively small number of holdings.

There are certain risks inherent in investing in BDCs. The Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, imposes certain restraints upon the operations of a BDC. Generally, little public information exists for private and thinly traded companies and there is a risk that investors may not be able to make a fully informed investment decision. With investments in debt instruments, there is a risk that the issuer may default on its payments or declare bankruptcy. Additionally, a BDC may only incur indebtedness in amounts such that the BDC's asset coverage equals at least 200% after such incurrence. These limitations on asset mix and leverage may prohibit the way that the BDC raises capital. BDCs generally invest in less mature private companies which involve greater risk than well-established publicly-traded companies. To the extent that the Fund invests a portion of its assets in BDCs, a shareholder in the Fund will bear not only his or her proportionate share of the expenses of the Fund, but also, indirectly the expenses of the BDCs.

Foreign securities have additional risks, including exchange-rate changes, decreased market liquidity, political instability and taxation by foreign governments.

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

Market disruptions, including a downturn in capital markets in general, or a downgrade of the credit rating of a listed private equity company held by the Fund may increase the cost of borrowing to that company, thereby increasing its cost of borrowing and adversely impacting the Fund's returns. Fair value of the investments of a listed private equity company may differ significantly from the values that would be reflected if the securities were traded in an established market, potentially resulting in material differences between the net asset value per share and the market value of a listed private equity company.

The Global Listed Private EquitySM Index includes between 40 and 60 publicly listed private equity companies, including business development companies and other financial institutions or vehicles whose principal business is to invest in and lend capital to privately held companies.

The Red Rocks Capital Listed Private Equity Index is comprised of 25 to 40 public companies which invest in, lend capital to, or provide services to privately held businesses. The Index represents a means of diversified exposure to private equity firms, as well as the consolidated exposure of the underlying portfolio investments.

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