• Investment Philosophy

    VanEck offers both active and index strategies based on what we believe are compelling investment exposures and intelligently designed approaches. We are driven by innovation, a hallmark of VanEck since our founding in 1955. 


    Active 

    We seek to provide superior risk-adjusted returns through market cycles by actively managing portfolios that benefit from:

    • In-depth fundamental, bottom-up research and security selection as primary drivers of performance
    • A management approach that seeks to generate long-term alpha
    • A strong process to identify and manage portfolio risk
    • Portfolio managers and analysts who have direct experience in the sectors and regions in which we invest

    Index 

    We seek to track as closely as possible the price and yield performance of targeted benchmarks. Our ETFs are distinguished by:

    • Experienced decision making on market and index selection to promote investability, liquidity, diversity, and transparency
    • Use of replication and optimized sampling processes, as appropriate for the asset class
    • Delivery through exchange traded funds and separately managed accounts
