Our Mission

We think beyond the confines of financial markets as they exist today and seek to identify the major trends—economic, technological, political and social—that shape opportunities and risks within portfolios.

Founded in 1955, this approach drove VanEck to become one of the first U.S. asset managers to offer investors access to international markets, and it remains our guiding principle today.
