Fund Summary and Key Points

The VanEck International Investors Gold Fund (the "Fund") seeks long-term capital appreciation by investing in common stocks of gold-mining companies. Income is a secondary consideration.

  • An actively managed portfolio, with a 50 year track record, that invests in gold-mining equities; geologist Joe Foster has been part of the investment team since 1996
  • Offers exposure to gold — a distinct asset class typically fueled by robust investment and jewelry demand, as well as ongoing supply constraints
  • May provide a hedge against financial assets in volatile markets or inflationary periods
  • Managed by a specialized investment team that conducts continuous on- and under-the-ground research to access mining efficiencies and opportunities
