New name for Market Vectors Indices


The Market Vectors Indices are adopting a new name and will now be known as MVIS Indices. In addition, Market Vectors Index Solutions will adopt the name MV Index Solutions (MVIS). 

The name change is part of a global rebranding initiative by MVIS’ parent company VanEck that will be implemented in stages across the firm’s business lines worldwide. The new index branding becomes effective on 2 May, 2016. The concept, methodology and identifier of the MVIS indices are not affected and remain unchanged.

MVIS launched in November 2011 introducing a sophisticated index strategy to develop highly investable indices. The index methodology concept ensures pure play, liquid and well-diversified indices, particularly suited to underlie exchange-traded funds (ETFs). MVIS currently disseminates 151 indices offering exposure to assets classes such as hard assets, international equity with a strong focus on emerging markets, and fixed income. Sixty per cent of all MVIS Indices are licensed to underlie ETFs, some of them the largest ETFs in their respective peer groups. Approximately USD 10 billion are invested in ETFs based on MVIS Indices.
