The Claymore S&P Global Water Index Fund (the "Fund") seeks investment results that correspond generally to the performance, before the Fund’s fees and expenses, of an equity index called the S&P Global Water Index (the “Water Index” or “Index”). The Fund is the first U.S.-listed global water ETF. The Fund will normally invest at least 90% of its total assets in common stock and American depositary receipts (“ADRs”) based on the securities in the Index. Claymore Advisors, LLC (the "Investment Adviser”) seeks a correlation over time of 95% or better between the Fund’s performance and the performance of the Index.
The Fund, using a low cost “passive” or “indexing” investment approach, seeks to replicate, before fees and expenses, the performance of the S&P Global Water Index. The Index is comprised of approximately 50 equity securities selected, based on investment and other criteria, from a universe of companies listed on global developed market exchanges. S&P generally defines “developed markets” as the capital markets of those countries with high levels of per capita income and strict market regulation resulting in greater transparency. The universe of companies includes all companies classified by Standard & Poor’s Global Industry Classifications as being associated (in a manner representing a major component of such companies’ business) with the global demand for water, including water utilities, infrastructure, equipment, instruments and materials.
