  • Important Disclosure 

    VanEck cannot accept trade or account-related requests via email.  

    This shall not constitute an offer to sell interests in any security, VanEck alternative investment, or mutual fund. Any such offer will only be made by means of a confidential, private offering memorandum or prospectus, and only in those jurisdictions where permitted by law.

    VanEck’s alternative investment strategies are speculative and involve a high degree of risk, and performance can be volatile. Interests in the Funds are subject to restrictions on transferability and resale. The Funds are intended for investors that are able to bear the financial risks of an investment in the Fund for an indefinite period of time. The Funds may be leveraged. An investor could lose all or a substantial amount of his or her investment. The Funds manager has total trading authority over the Funds. The use of a single advisor applying generally similar trading programs could mean a lack of diversification and, consequently, higher risk. The Funds’ high fees and expenses may offset trading profits.
