Share:

VanEck
announced today that it is lowering the expense ratio for its VanEck
Vectors® ChinaAMC CSI 300 ETF (NYSE:
PEK)
and its VanEck
Vectors® ChinaAMC SME-ChiNext ETF (NYSE:
CNXT).
Effective January 10, 2019, the expense cap for PEK will be reduced from
0.72% to 0.60%,1 and the expense cap for CNXT will be reduced
from 0.78% to 0.65%.2 PEK seeks to track the CSI
300 Index
, which is comprised of the largest and most liquid stocks
in the Chinese A-share market. CNXT seeks to track the SME-ChiNext
100 Index
, which is comprised of the 100 largest and most liquid
onshore China A-share stocks listed on the Small and Medium Enterprise
(SME) Board and the ChiNext Board of the Shenzhen Stock Exchange.

VanEck regularly evaluates fund expenses to identify opportunities to
lower shareholder costs. These fee reductions will allow investors to
benefit from the opportunities and diversification potential offered by
China's vast onshore equity market, at a lower cost.

"China's contribution to global gross domestic product is now comparable
to the U.S., but may be underrepresented in many investors' portfolios.
We have seen increasing foreign investment into China as policymakers
have gradually opened up the onshore market in recent years. We believe
that attractive valuations and stimulus-driven growth should provide
opportunities for investors going forward," said Ed Lopez, Head of ETF
Product at VanEck.

In addition to PEK and CNXT, VanEck also provides exposure to
Renminbi-denominated bonds through its VanEck
Vectors® ChinaAMC Bond ETF (CBON®)
. Investors

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
November 30, 2018, VanEck managed approximately $44.5 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
process 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.
