The VanEck VIP Global Gold Fund is an actively managed portfolio that invests in gold-mining equities. Geologist Joe Foster has been part of VanEck's gold investment team since 1996. The Fund offers exposure to gold — a distinct asset class typically fueled by robust investment and jewelry demand, as well as ongoing supply constraints. The Fund is managed by a specialized investment team that conducts continuous on- and under-the-ground research to access mining efficiencies and opportunities.
