VanEck announced today that effective Monday February 8th, the net asset value for each of Market Vectors ChinaAMC A-Share ETF (PEK), Market Vectors ChinaAMC SME-ChiNext ETF (CNXT), and Market Vectors ChinaAMC China Bond ETF (CBON) will be calculated using the “offshore” Renminbi (CNH) exchange rate.
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. Market Vectors exchange-traded products have been sponsored by VanEck 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. VanEck also offers mutual funds, insurance trust funds, separate accounts and alternative investments. Designed for investors seeking innovative choices for portfolio diversification, VanEck’s investment products are often categorized in asset classes having returns with generally low correlations to those of more traditional U.S. equity and fixed income investments.
The Market Vectors ChinaAMC A-Share ETF (PEK) and Market Vectors ChinaAMC SME-ChiNext ETF (CNXT) are subject to risks which include, among others, those associated with investments in Chinese securities, particularly A-Shares, adviser and sub-adviser risk, risk of the RQFII regime, political and economic instability, inflation, confiscatory taxation, nationalization, expropriation, and market volatility, all of which may adversely affect the Fund. Foreign and emerging markets investments are subject to risks, which include changes in economic and political conditions, foreign currency fluctuations, changes in foreign regulations, changes in currency exchange rates, unstable governments, and limited trading capacity which may make these investments volatile in price or difficult to trade. Small and medium-capitalization companies may be subject to elevated risks. The Fund's assets may be concentrated in a particular sector and may be subject to more risk than investments in a diverse group of sectors.
An investment in the Market Vectors China Bond ETF may be subject to risk which include, among others, credit risk, interest rate risk, sovereign and quasi-sovereign defaults, adviser and sub-adviser risk, and risk of the RQFII regime, all of which may adversely affect the Fund. Investments in mainland China may be subject to local customs, duties and rights of ownership, which might change at any time should policy makers deem them in China's best interest. As the Fund invests in securities denominated in Chinese Renminbi, changes in currency exchange rates may negatively impact the Fund's return. Foreign and emerging markets investments are subject to risks, which include changes in economic and political conditions, foreign currency fluctuations, changes in foreign regulations, changes in currency exchange rates, unstable governments, and limited trading capacity which may make these investments volatile in price or difficult to trade. The Fund's assets may be concentrated in a particular sector and may be subject to more risk than investments in a diverse group of sectors.
Fund shares are not individually redeemable and will be issued and redeemed at their “Net Asset Value” (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.
Investing involves substantial risk and high volatility, including possible loss of principal. An investor should consider the investment objective, risks, charges and expenses of a Fund carefully before investing.
