Bond Allocation

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 Core Allocation are designed to solve for a specific goal within a portfolio

VanEck Vectors® Investment Grade Floating Rate ETF, the benchmark of this selection, is chosen for contrast, highlighting very short term momentum shifts, as well as performance and volatility, of core VanEck Bond ETFs, municiplals, corporate and emerging markest issues 

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

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
