The principal risks of investing in VanEck 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. Please
see the Prospectus and Summary Prospectus of each Fund for more complete
information regarding its specific risks.

The “net asset value” (NAV) of an ETF is determined at the close of each
business day, and represents the dollar value of one share of the ETF;
it is calculated by taking the total assets of an ETF subtracting total
liabilities, and dividing by the total number of shares outstanding. The
NAV is not necessarily the same as an ETF’s intraday trading value.
Investors should not expect to buy or sell shares at NAV. Total returns
are based upon closing “market price” (price) of the ETF on the dates

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. 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

possible loss of principal. Bonds and bond funds will decrease in value
as interest rates rise. An investor should consider the investment
objective, risks, and charges and expenses of VanEck Vectors ETFs
carefully before investing. The prospectus and summary prospectus
contains this and other information. Please read the prospectus and
summary prospectus carefully before investing.
