VanEck has completed the integration of 14 Think ETFs by rebranding the range in its product portfolio following the acquisition of the Dutch issuer back in January 2018.

The rebrand means all of VanEck's ETFs are marketed in Europe under the name VanEck Vectors.

Think ETFs’ €1.5 billion ETF business was acquired by VanEck 19 months ago, bolstering the American’s European footprint from 6 ETFs to 20.

Philipp Schlegel, head of UK sales at VanEck, said in a statement: "By renaming the Think ETFs as VanEck Vectors ETFs, we are finalising the integration, broadening our product portfolio and reinforcing the brand while continuing to focus on innovative, forward-looking, and intelligently designed investment strategies."

VanEck Vectors ETFs offer exposure to specialised strategies such as gold mine equities, US smart-beta equities and other specialties in the area of fixed income, such as fallen angel high yield bonds and emerging market bonds. The firm also launched a video gaming ETF on the LSE in June, offering exposure to the 'future of sport'.

“By enlarging the product range and including equal weight equity benchmarks, dividends and real estate, we offer attractive portfolio components for all types of investors,” Schlegel concluded.
