Market Vectors switches suite of Chilean-listed ETFs to peso-denomination

The conversion of the ETFs to peso-denomination will reduce currency risk for Chilean investors.

The move by Market Vectors is significant in that it reduces currency risk for the local investor compared to the previously US dollar-denominated funds. In the past, performance would be negatively affected if the Chilean peso appreciated against the dollar during the term of holding.

The change to peso-denomination is also indicative of the development of the ETF industry as fund issuers seek to better tailor solutions to their clients’ needs.

The 27 ETFs that Market Vectors has changed to peso-denomination are:

Market Vectors Agribusiness ETF (MOO)
