Claymore Investments announces the launch of the Claymore S&P/TSX Global Mining ETF on TSX



    TORONTO, June 12 /CNW/ - Claymore Investments, Inc. is pleased to
announce the launch of the Claymore S&P/TSX Global Mining ETF (TSX: CMW) to
begin trading today on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX).
    The Claymore S&P/TSX Global Mining ETF (TSX: CMW) seeks investment
results that correspond generally to the performance, before the Fund's fees
and expenses, of an equity index called the S&P/TSX Global Mining Index. The
index is currently comprised of 107 stocks selected based on the relative
importance of the global mining industry within their business model and has a
balanced representation from different segments of the mining industry
consisting of five sub-industries including: Aluminum, Diversified Metals &
Mining, Gold, Precious Metals & Minerals, and Coal & Consumable Fuels.
    "We believe this ETF fills a void in the market for a pure play ETF on
the Global Mining industry", said Som Seif, President of Claymore Investments.
"Investors now have a product that invests in securities of mining companies
that may have exposure to nickel, copper, gold and other core metals; but also
covers consumable fuels such as uranium, which currently is an orphaned
sub-sector and not covered by other indexes."
    To ensure investability, a developed market listing and a minimum market
capitalization of US $300 million is required. The Index is rebalanced
annually.

    
    CMW joins the current family of Claymore ETFs available on the TSX:
