AFK Market Vectors Africa Index ETF

  • Fund Description

    VanEck Vectors Africa Index ETF (AFK®) seeks to replicate as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the price and yield performance of the MVIS GDP Africa Index (MVAFKTR), which includes local listings of companies that are incorporated in Africa and offshore listings of companies incorporated outside of Africa but that generate at least 50% of their revenues (or, where applicable, have at least 50% of their assets) in Africa.
