VanEck VIP Global Resources Fund

 

The VanEck VIP Global Resources Fund offers exposure to energy, precious and base metals, timber, agriculture, alternative energy and other resources. It does this through the use of equities and commodity-linked derivative instruments. The Fund provides potential diversification benefits through low correlations to traditional asset classes and may enhance the risk-return profile of a more traditional stock and bond portfolio. It is managed by a dedicated team of investment professionals, among the industry’s largest, including three trained geologists and senior sector analysts who are well-versed in their respective fields.
