Investment Strategy:

KEMQ seeks to track the Solactive Emerging Markets Consumer Technology Index. The Index selects companies from 26 eligible countries within emerging markets whose primary business or businesses are internet retail, internet software/services, purchase, payment processing, or software for internet and E-Commerce transactions. Upon rebalance, constituent weights are capped at 3% and country weights are capped at 40%.

Emerging Markets Consumer Technology Highlights:

  • Internet adoption is expanding rapidly within emerging markets at the same time that domestic consumption and retail sales are steadily increasing and frequently taking place online
  • According to a study from the Brookings Institution, middle class consumption could reach 50% of total global consumption by the year 2030, more than doubling from 20151
  • We believe the growth of internet adoption within emerging markets is a long term secular theme that may continue to play out over the course of decades

KEMQ features:

  • Access to emerging market internet companies that provide similar services as Google, Facebook, PayPal, Amazon, etc.
  • Exposure to companies that stand to benefit from increasing domestic consumption by emerging markets' growing middle class
  • Exposure to emerging market companies facilitating mobile E-Commerce sales

30 Day Median Bid/Ask Spread

The ETF’s 30 Day Median Bid-Ask Spread is calculated by identifying the ETF’s national best bid and national best offer ("NBBO") as of the end of each 10 second interval during each trading day of the last 30 calendar days and dividing the difference between each such bid and offer by the midpoint of the NBBO. The median of those values is identified and that value is expressed as a percentage rounded to the nearest hundredth.
