Opportunities for intelligent investors
Since 1955, VanEck has offered its investors strategies that are designed to provide unequalled access to markets, sectors and investment opportunities.
VanEck was founded in New York in 1955 by John C. van Eck Jr with the launch of an international investment strategy for US investors to gain access to 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 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 fund with the longest standing track record focussing on precious metals mining shares.
In 2006 VanEck launched the US’s first ever and highly recognised gold miners ETF. VanEck is now one of the largest exchange traded product providers in the world.Australia
