Fund Description

VanEck Vectors® Real Asset Allocation ETF (the "Fund") seeks long-term total return. In pursuing long-term total return, the Fund seeks to maximize real returns while seeking to reduce downside risk during sustained market declines by allocating primarily to exchange-traded products that provides exposure to real assets, which include commodities, real estate, natural resources, and infrastructure. The Fund seeks to reduce downside risk by using a rules based approach to determine when to allocate a portion or all of the Fund's assets to cash and cash equivalents.
