VanEck launches four new ETFs
VanEck has added four new exchange traded funds (ETFs) to its offerings. The Vectors Global Healthcare Leaders ETF (ASX: HLTH), the VanEck Vectors Video Gaming and eSports ETF (ASX: ESPO), the VanEck Vectors Morningstar® World ex Australia Wide Moat ETF (ASX:GOAT), and the VanEck Vectors Morningstar® Australian Moat Income ETF (ASX: DVDY) all launched on the Australian Stock Exchange on 10 September 2020.
The VanEck Vectors Video Gaming and eSports ETF will be the first ETF in Australia to invest in global pure-play video gaming and eSport companies.
“[It] is tapping into the dramatic rise of video gaming and eSports, a structural phenomenon which COVID-19 is accentuating and accelerating," Arian Neiron, VanEck's managing director and head of Asia Pacific, said.
VanEck says that all the new ETFs will give investors access to opportunities previously unavailable to them "via intelligently designed and forward looking index strategies".
