Strategic Allocation to Real Assets Could Boost Portfolio Returns

GILLIAN KEMMERER: Welcome, I’m Gillian Kemmerer. Building on a legacy in the real asset space, VanEck is soon to debut a new fund, ticker RAAX. It is a real assets ETF that can invest in commodities, natural resource equities, REITs, MLPs, and infrastructure. It uses ETFs to gain exposure and can also be 100% in cash. Here to tell us more about the launch, VanEck’s own David Schassler and Roland Morris. Thanks for joining us. So, Dave, why don’t we start with an elevator pitch for the fund?
