Exchange traded fund provider Global X will be liquidating eight of its offerings in February 2012.

According to a press release, the  funds are currently closed to new investors and will stop trading at the end of February 16, 2012 and will be liquidated on February 27, 2012.

Between February 17, 2012 through February 27, 2012, the funds will stop following their target strategies and begin taking on larger cash positions. Investors may also be able to sell their shares between this period to certain broker-dealers; however, there is no guaranteed market for the funds during the period.

Investors who have held onto their ETF investments upon the final liquidation date will be given a cash distribution equal to the net asset value of the shares as of February 27.
