What is the basis for selecting only these 3 countries for Global X FTSE Andean 40 ETF?
It is because of a pending agreement between Chile, Peru & Colombia, where they have planned to merge their stock exchanges and offer a common trading platform across the 3 countries. Most likely, once this agreement goes through, the joint stock exchange formed by the merger of these 3 countries will be the second largest stock exchange in the South American region. The largest will still be Brazil. Third placed will be the Mexican stock exchange, which is expected to be just half the size of the joint 3 stock exchange.
This will mean all the stocks currently listed in any of these 3 stock exchanges of Chile, Peru & Colombia can be traded through one single bourse or exchange entity. Common exchange is expected to provide a lot of synergy for trading and investments not only to these 3 countries as well as to the rest of the world, who may like to invest through this combined entity.

Another reason is that these 3 countries are known to be top ranked for doing business in the South American region, so expectations of growth is positive.
