About VanEck

VanEck has a history of looking beyond the financial markets to identify
trends that are likely to create impactful investment opportunities. We
were one of the first U.S. asset managers to offer investors access to
international markets. This set the tone for the firm's drive to
identify asset classes and trends – including gold investing in 1968,
emerging markets in 1993, and exchange traded funds in 2006 – that
subsequently shaped the investment management industry.

Today, VanEck offers active and passive strategies with compelling
exposures supported by well-designed investment processes. As of June
30, 2018, VanEck managed approximately $47 billion in assets, including
mutual funds, ETFs, and institutional accounts. The firm's capabilities
range from core investment opportunities to more specialized exposures
to enhance portfolio diversification. Our actively managed strategies
are fueled by in-depth, bottom-up research and security selection from
portfolio managers with direct experience in the sectors and regions in
which they invest. Investability, liquidity, diversity, and transparency
are key to the experienced decision-making around market and index
selection underlying VanEck's passive strategies.

Since our founding in 1955, putting our clients' interests first, in all
market environments, has been at the heart of the firm's mission.
