How to Purchase

GLCN (formerly PEK)
VanEck Vectors China Growth Leaders ETF

  • China presents investors with unique growth opportunities as its economy evolves into an economic powerhouse, but broad benchmarks for China are filled with potentially undesirable and troublesome companies.
  • Fundamentally-driven stock selection may help investors get exposure to the best stocks in China, while excluding the rest.
  • MarketGrader’s company scoring methodology is based on an evaluation of metrics that measure growth, value and quality, which helps identify leading companies with the best growth potential.
