Van Eck Global Launches Market Vectors Generic Drugs ETF

Van Eck Global has launched the Market Vectors Generic Drugs ETF (GNRX), the first and only Exchange-Traded Fund (ETF) to target global manufacturers of generic drugs and biosimilars, similar copies of existing but difficult to replicate biological drugs. GNRX seeks to replicate as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the price and yield performance of the Indxx Global Generics & New Pharma Index. To be included in the Index, companies must derive a significant proportion of their revenues (or have the potential to derive a significant proportion of their revenues) from the generic drug industry or have a primary business focus on the generic drug industry. Constituents must also meet market capitalization, daily trading volume, and daily trading activity requirements. Van Eck notes that an investment in GNRX incurs risks which include those associated with investments in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology sectors as well as foreign and emerging markets investments, particularly those concentrated in India and Ireland. GNRX has a gross expense ratio of 0.63% and net expense ratio of 0.55%, which is capped contractually until February 1, 2017. GNRX joins Van Eck Global's family of healthcare-focused industry ETFs, which also includes Market Vectors Biotech ETF and Market Vectors Pharmaceutical ETF.
