Van Eck Global lists unique ETF on Deutsche Börse – ETF invests in attractively priced US companies with structural competitive advantage

Van Eck Global Investments Ltd. has cross-listed the Market Vectors® Morningstar US Wide Moat UCITS Exchange-Traded Fund (ETF)  on Deutsche Börse’s XETRA platform. It is the first ETF in Europe to provide exposure to “wide moat” companies according to Morningstar’s equity research, i.e. companies with a structural competitive advantage that have the potential for long-term above-average returns on capital. The ETF will trade in Euro (XETRA: GMVM).

The Market Vectors Morningstar US Wide Moat UCITS ETF tracks the equally weighted Morningstar® Wide Moat Focus IndexTM developed by Morningstar Inc., a leading provider of independent investment research. The index concept is based on Morningstar’s proprietary economic moat rating and valuation research which identifies high-quality companies with sustainable competitive advantages that allow a company to generate positive economic returns for an extended period of time.

“The launch and cross-listing of this unique ETF, an UCITS ETF reinforces Van Eck’s commitment to offer innovative products to investors,” commented Lars Hamich, CEO of Van Eck Global (Europe). “Van Eck is known for being a pioneer in global markets and we are proud to continue this tradition in Europe with the only ETF based on Morningstar’s economic moat analysis. The unique ETF moat concept traces back to Warren Buffet and refers to the competitive advantage of a company and the durability of that advantage.  Buffet believes that companies with sustainable moats are the ones with potential for long-term success. Including only such wide moat companies, specifically those that are most attractively priced, the ETF underlying has historically outperformed the US equity market.”

The Market Vectors Morningstar US Wide Moat UCITS ETF is the latest addition to Van Eck’s European ETF line-up, exclusively covering US companies across currently eight industry sectors. As of 31 October 2015, the top three sector weightings were Consumer Discretionary (25.22%), Industrials (24.14%) and Information Technology (20.98%). The top five ranks of the ETF basket are held by Autodesk Inc. (5.66%), Twenty-First Century Fox Inc. (5.49%), Walt Disney Co. (5.29%), Procter & Gamble Co. (5.28%) and Discovery Communications Inc. (5.20 %).

The fund has its main listing on the London Stock Exchange and is currently registered for public distribution in Germany, Finland, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. The ETF has a total expense ratio of 0.49 percent.
