International Investors Gold Fund - Class I

Market Updates*

  • Vaccine news and the stimulus bill has created an outlook for strong economic growth, which dampens our near-term outlook for gold.
  • We expect catalysts to emerge in the second half of 2021, which may include excessive inflationary expectations, continued Central Bank asset purchases and rising commodity prices. Our long-term bull market view for gold remains intact.
  • Gold companies remain a compelling value buy, in our view. Balance sheets continue to get stronger and miners are remaining disciplined in their capital investment.

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
