The investment seeks to track, before fees and expenses, the performance of the Market Vectors North America Long/Short Equity Index.
The fund normally invests at least 80% of its net assets in securities that comprise the index. The index is constructed using a rules based process and seeks to capture the performance of a group of long/short equity hedge funds that focus on North American companies (the "Proprietary L/S Equity Universe"). Market Vectors Index Solutions GmbH (the "Index Provider"), an affiliate of the Adviser, uses a two-step process to identify the Proprietary L/S Equity Universe. It is non-diversified.
