About VanEck

Access the Opportunities

Providing investors access to opportunities that will diversify their portfolios is VanEck’s guiding principle. Through forward-looking, intelligently designed active and passive approaches, we offer value-added exposures to emerging industries, asset classes and markets as well as differentiated approaches to traditional strategies.

We think beyond the capital markets to identify the trends—including economic, technological, political and social—that we believe will fuel investable opportunities and inspire our clients to reach their financial goals. VanEck was one of the first U.S. asset managers to offer investors access to international markets and recognized early the transformative potential of gold investing, emerging markets and ETFs. Today, our firm’s capabilities range from core investment opportunities to more specialized exposures to enhance portfolio diversification.

Understanding Our History

VanEck has a long history of empowering investors with impactful portfolio opportunities. Across all market environments, we believe in putting our clients’ interests first – a core tenant of the VanEck brand.

Since our founding, VanEck has been privately owned and operated by the van Eck family. John van Eck launched the firm in 1955 to bring post-World War II investment opportunities to U.S. investors. In the early 1990s, when his sons, Derek and Jan, joined the Firm, VanEck undertook a series of business initiatives that have since provided substantial growth. Since his brother Derek’s passing in 2010, Jan has managed the firm’s growing global operations and continues to do so today.

In Europe, VanEck opened its first office in 2008 – focusing on the index business – followed by the opening of its Swiss office in 2010 to focus on institutional distribution and business development for alternative and active investment management strategies. Shortly thereafter, the first UCITS-eligible active strategy was launched, prior to an alternative investment strategy in 2013. The first UCITS-compliant ETF was launched in 2015. In 2018, VanEck acquired the Dutch ETF provider “Think ETF Asset Management B.V.” to broaden its ETF portfolio for European and international markets.
