“VanEck” is Our New Universal Brand

Market Vectors ETFs Change to VanEck Vectors ETFs; New CUSIPs, ISINs, and SEDOLs effective on May 1

NEW YORK--()--VanEck today rolled out the unification of its businesses and investment offerings under a single brand: “VanEck.” This change supports VanEck’s growing global presence in markets ranging from China and Australia to the European Union and the U.S. VanEck expects that there will be no disruption to services rendered during the implementation of this change.

As part of this branding initiative, the well-known Market Vectors exchange-traded products have adopted the VanEck name and will now be known as VanEck VectorsTM ETFs. As a result, CUSIPs, ISINs, and SEDOLs for every VanEck Vectors ETF changed effective May 1, 2016. For a complete catalogue of all ETF modifications, please consult this list located on our website.

VanEck’s unified brand is designed to highlight the firm’s unique role in the marketplace as represented by its positioning statement: Access the opportunities. This, in turn, reflects the firm’s mission since its founding in 1955: creating value for investors and advisors by providing access to compelling market opportunities.

As of March 31, 2016, VanEck managed approximately $28.9 billion in assets, including mutual funds, ETFs and institutional accounts.
