Four VanEck Vector ETFs to trade in GBP on the LSE


VanEck Investments has announced that its range of four VanEck Vectors UCITS ETFs are available to trade in GBP on the London Stock Exchange (LSE). The GBP denominated ETFs are available by start of trading today in addition to the US-Dollar denominated UCITS ETFs already registered on the LSE.

“The reason for expanding our offering on the London Stock Exchange with GBP denominated variants of our established UCITS ETFs is due to demand from UK based investors to trade our specialized ETF solutions in their local currency,” says Philipp Schlegel, Director International Business Development at VanEck. “In addition to this, foreign investors may now invest into our ETFs while increasing their exposure to the GBP.”
VanEck’s UCITS ETFs available for trade in GBP are the VanEck Vectors JP Morgan EM Local Currency Bond UCITS ETF which allows investors to participate in local emerging markets economies which tend to provide higher yields than developed markets and potential for currency appreciation. Local currency emerging markets bonds tend to have a lower correlation to the US dollar and help to diversify a portfolio.

The VanEck Vectors Gold Miners UCITS ETF and the VanEck Vectors Junior Gold Miners UCITS ETF provide access to the global gold mining sector. GDGB covers a portfolio of large, mid-sized, and small global gold mining companies. GDGB is currently the third largest gold mining UCITS ETFs in Europe by assets under management. GJGB invests in micro-, small-, and medium-capitalised mining companies, called ‘juniors’ because they are in an exploratory or early mining phase.

The VanEck Vectors Morningstar US Wide Moat UCITS ETF is the first ETF in Europe to provide exposure to US companies with a Morningstar Economic Moat Rating of Wide. The underlying index developed by Morningstar is based on the idea of economic moats, long-term structural advantages that allow a company to withstand competition. The Morningstar Wide Moat Focus Index has outperformed the broader US equity market since its inception.
