Risk Averse

Offering value-added exposures to emerging industries, asset classes and markets as well as differentiated approaches to traditional strategies,

at VanEck, we think beyond the financial markets to identify the trends—including economic, technological, political and social—that we believe will fuel investable opportunities

Today, our firm’s capabilities range from core investment opportunities to more specialized exposures to enhance portfolio diversification.


The funds listed in Strategies are designed to reflect targeted investor priorities within a portfolio

VanEck Vectors® Preferred Securities ex Financials ETF, the benchmark of this selection, is also included in the selection, highlighting very short term momentum shifts, as well as performance and volatility, of the low-volatility VanEck ETFs, which could contribute to reduce overall portfolio risk exposure while offering diversified investment opportunities

Evaluation of performance / volatility of each fund for different periods (up to a year) is of special relevance


Momentum, a very short-term trend indicator, may signal sector rotation - click the column header to rank momentum and highlight trends across fund categories 

In the choice of time frames to highlight trends in performance and risk (volatility) of the funds, the selection of short periods - from 1 week to 6 months - is strongly advised - for a better overview, double-click the performance / risk chart 

Volatility is always annualized for comparison purposes

As is the case for all the themes listed on the platform, further information can be accessed with hovering the mouse over a ticker or by clicking fund name / ticker - or any column header

The selection on pininvest.com is not publicly available and presented for demo purposes only - this is also the case for the entire range of VanEck themes presented on the platform

Fund information is provided by ETF Global (updates pending) and end-of-day pricing by Sharadar
