About Van Eck Global and Market Vectors ETFs

Founded in 1955, Van Eck Associates Corporation was among the first U.S.
money managers helping investors achieve greater diversification through
global investing. Today the firm continues this tradition by offering
innovative, actively managed investment portfolios in hard assets,
emerging markets, precious metals including gold, fixed income, and
other alternative asset classes. Van Eck Global has offices around the
world and managed approximately $25.4 billion in investor assets as of
September 30, 2015.

Market Vectors exchange-traded products have been sponsored by Van Eck
Global since 2006, when the firm launched the nation’s first gold-mining
ETF. Today, Market Vectors ETFs and ETNs span several asset classes,
including equities, fixed income (municipal and international bonds) and
currency markets. Market Vectors is one of the largest ETP families in
the U.S and worldwide.

Van Eck Global also offers mutual funds, insurance trust funds, separate
accounts and alternative investments. Designed for investors seeking
innovative choices for portfolio diversification, Van Eck Global’s
investment products are often categorized in asset classes having
returns with low correlations to those of more traditional U.S. equity
and fixed income investments.

The principal risks of investing in Market Vectors ETFs include sector,
market, economic, political, foreign currency, world event, index
tracking and non-diversification risks, as well as fluctuations in net
asset value and the risks associated with investing in less developed
capital markets. The assets of some Funds may be concentrated in a
particular sector and may be subject to more risk than investments in a
diverse group of sectors. The Funds may loan their securities, which may
subject them to additional credit and counterparty risk.

Fixed income investments are subject to interest rate risk, credit risk,
the risk that the issuer of a bond will fail to pay interest and
principal in a timely manner, or that negative perceptions of the
issuer’s ability to make such payments will cause the price of that bond
to decline. Bonds and bond funds will decrease in value as interest
rates rise. In addition, when interest rates fall income may decline.

Fund shares are not individually redeemable and will be issued and
redeemed at their NAV only through certain authorized broker-dealers in
large, specified blocks of shares called “creation units” and otherwise
can be bought and sold only through exchange trading. Creation units are
issued and redeemed principally in kind. Shares may trade at a premium
or discount to their NAV in the secondary market. You will incur
brokerage expenses when trading Fund shares in the secondary market.

Investors may call 888.MKT.VCTR or visit marketvectorsetfs.com

summary prospectus carefully before investing.
