Effective March 11, 2011, 38 PowerShares ETFs have been cross-listed on the international segment of Bolsa Mexicana de Valores (BMV), adding to 10 existing products that were trading in Mexico before these new cross-listings.

"We are very excited to be expanding the range of ETF solutions available to institutional investors in Mexico," said Ben Fulton, Invesco PowerShares managing director of global ETFs. "We believe there will be strong demand from investors for our innovative family of peso-denominated ETFs that provide efficient access to a wide selection of global opportunities."

"With the addition of these new cross-listings, Invesco PowerShares in now the second largest provider of ETFs in Mexico by number of funds," added Bryon Lake, senior product manager at Invesco PowerShares. "We look forward to working closely with our sponsoring brokers to provide ongoing education and support for this important initiative."

Invesco PowerShares appointed local divisions of Deutsche Bank and J.P. Morgan as sponsoring brokers to cross-list the ETFs on the BMV. The ETFs trade through Mexican Depository Receipts denominated in pesos and the sponsoring brokers service all corporate actions including disseminating shareholder information in the Mexican market.
