VanEck renames LFEQ ETF to highlight fund’s trend following strategy


The VanEck Vectors NDR CMG Long/Flat Allocation ETF (LFEQ) has been renamed the VanEck Vectors Long/Flat Trend ETF.“We believe the new fund name better captures what the fund is designed to do,” says Ed Lopez, Head of ETF Product with VanEck. “LFEQ’s underlying index measures trends in the US equity market, across multiple industry groups and over different time periods, to identify tactical opportunities for allocations between stocks and cash. Recent volatility in the market is a reminder of the elevated valuation risks investors face as stock prices charged higher even while earnings growth plateaued. LFEQ can be an effective risk management tool for investors, helping to minimise major drawdowns, while allowing for meaningful participation in equity markets.”

The Fund’s index, the Ned Davis Research CMG US Large Cap Long/Flat Index remains unchanged and continues to follow a rules-based model that uses technical analysis to measure US equity market health and produce trade signals to guide the Index’s equity allocation. The ticker also remains unchanged.
