Founded in 1955, Van Eck Associates Corporation was among the first U.S. money managers helping investors achieve greater diversification through global investing.

Today, the firm continues that 50+ year tradition by offering global investment choices in hard assets, emerging markets, precious metals, including gold, and other specialized asset classes. VanEck currently manages over $11 billion.

VanEck offers a series of focused exchange-traded funds and exchange-traded notes under the VanEck Vectors name. These products allow individual investors and financial professionals to fine tune their allocation strategies with exposure to targeted sectors and countries.

VanEck also offers a number of mutual funds that are sold nationwide through brokers, financial planners and investment advisors. Designed for investors seeking innovative choices for portfolio diversification, they are often categorized in asset classes having returns with low correlations to those of more traditional U.S. equity and fixed income investments.

In addition, VanEck offers separate accounts, alternative investments and the Worldwide Insurance Trust Funds, a series of investment choices within the variable annuity contracts and variable life policies of widely known and highly regarded insurers.
