130-Day SEC Yield is a standard yield calculation developed by the Securities and Exchange Commission that allows for a fairer comparison among funds. It is based on the most recent 30-day period. This yield figure reflects the income earned during the period after deducting the Fund’s expenses for the period. Distributions may vary from time to time. The yield has been adjusted to reflect estimates for return of capital that would result in a reduction of income to the 30-Day SEC Yield calculation which may cause the yield to be negative. The distribution yield is calculated by annualizing the most recent Fund distribution and dividing by the Fund NAV from the as-of date. The 12-month yield is calculated by summing Fund distributions over the past 12 months and dividing by the Fund NAV from the as-of date. Yield information may reflect temporary waivers of expenses and/or fees. Yields may have been reduced had waived fees/expenses been included.

4IIV is an abbreviation for the intraday indicative value of an ETF's Shares (and is also known as the Indicative Optimized Portfolio Value or IOPV), and is disseminated every 15 seconds during regular trading hours. The IIV is based on the current market value of the securities and/or cash required to be deposited in exchange for a Creation Unit. The IIV does not necessarily reflect the precise composition of the current portfolio of securities held by the Fund at a particular point in time or the best possible valuation of the current portfolio. Therefore, the IIV should not be viewed as a "real-time" update of the Fund's NAV, which is computed only once a day. The Fund is not involved in, or responsible for, the calculation or dissemination of the IIV and makes no warranty as to its accuracy.

Index returns are not Fund returns and do not reflect any management fees or brokerage expenses. Certain indices may take into account withholding taxes. Investors can not invest directly in the Index. Returns for actual Fund investors may differ from what is shown because of differences in timing, the amount invested and fees and expenses. Index returns assume that dividends have been reinvested.
The “Net Asset Value” (NAV) of a VanEck Vectors exchange-traded fund (ETF) is determined at the close of each business day, and represents the dollar value of one share of the fund; it is calculated by taking the total assets of the fund, subtracting total liabilities, and dividing by the total number of shares outstanding. The NAV is not necessarily the same as the ETF’s intraday trading value. VanEck Vectors ETF investors should not expect to buy or sell shares at NAV.
Fund shares are not individually redeemable and will be issued and redeemed at their “Net Asset Value” (NAV) only through certain authorized broker-dealers in large, specified blocks of shares called creation units and otherwise can be bought and sold only through exchange trading. Shares may trade at a premium or discount to their NAV in the secondary market.
