VanEck Vectors Real Asset Allocation ETF

Fund Description

VanEck Vectors® Real Asset Allocation ETF (the "Fund") seeks long-term total return. In pursuing long-term total return, the Fund seeks to maximize real returns while seeking to reduce downside risk during sustained market declines by allocating primarily to exchange-traded products that provide exposure to real assets, which include commodities, real estate, natural resources, and infrastructure. The Fund seeks to reduce downside risk by using a rules-based approach to determine when to allocate a portion of the Fund's assets to cash and cash equivalents.

*Beta is a measure of sensitivity to market movements. Correlation measures the extent of linear association between the ETF performance and the index performance. Volatility is the annualized standard deviation of the ETF's monthly returns. Sharpe ratio measures risk-adjusted return, and represents the ETF's return less the risk free rate divided by the standard deviation. See S&P 500 Index definition.5
