Emerging Markets Fund - Class Y

Latest Market Updates*

  • The VanEck Emerging Equity Strategy outperformed the MSCI EM IMI Index YTD and over 3YR, 5YR and 10YR time periods ending September 30, 2020. The Strategy slightly underperformed the benchmark during 3Q and 1YR time periods.
  • The global pandemic has accelerated growth in certain sectors and industries such as digital payments, e-commerce, data centers, telemedicine and video gaming.
  • This acceleration trend is positive for our active Emerging Markets Equity Strategy, as we have always been forward looking, focused on many of these structural growth areas and, as a result, we currently see that positive prospects for many of our portfolio companies actually accelerated.
  • As COVID-19 unfolded, significant market turbulence disproportionately affected small- and mid-cap stocks in emerging markets, as is often the case in times of heightened risk. As markets normalize, we believe it is reasonable to expect relative outperformance from these smaller stocks.
