VanEck’s global heritage
VanEck was founded in New York in 1955 by John C. van Eck Jr with the launch of an innovative international investment vehicle for Americans to invest in foreign growth stocks. Mr van Eck was a pioneer of international investing being one of the first to recognise the potential opportunities in the post-World War II economic recoveries of Europe and Japan.
In 1968, after studying under the Austrian economist Ludwig von Mises at New York University, Mr van Eck moved the bulk of the portfolio into gold mining shares, predicting that worldwide inflation would lead to gold mines offering better growth prospects than industrial and financial investments. The International Investors Gold Fund remains the oldest fund to concentrate in precious metals mining shares and it was launched in time for investors to participate in the great gold bull market of the 1970s.
In 2006 VanEck launched the US’s first ever gold miners ETF. VanEck is now one of the largest exchange traded product providers in the US and worldwide.
VanEck’s global CEO is Jan van Eck who continues the family tradition. The firm remains a privately owned investment management business and has expanded across the globe.
