BBH
VanEck Vectors Biotech ETF

  • The biotech sector is attracting a wave of investor interest as companies race to meet soaring global demand for COVID-19 diagnostics and treatment.
  • Demand is expected to outstrip supply for the foreseeable future.
  • Optimism about recent developments by some biotech firms has also helped lift the sector’s performance so far this year.
  • Gilead Sciences and Moderna are two of BBH’s top 10 holdings. Gilead recently indicated that the trial for coronavirus treatment Remdesivir has met its initial goal, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is fast tracking Moderna’s experimental COVID-19 vaccine through the regulatory review process.
