INC is designed to maximize yield per unit of risk by optimizing exposures to high income producing assets and actively managing allocations based on market conditions.
VanEck today announced the launch of the VanEck Dynamic High Income ETF (NYSE: INC), an actively managed multi-asset income-focused ETF offering diversified exposure across the highest yielding segments of the equity income and fixed income markets.
INC seeks to identify compelling sources of high income and dividends and builds a corresponding portfolio primarily of ETFs. The Fund’s management team then seeks to maximize yield per unit of risk by assessing volatility and correlation data to optimize and refine specific exposures. The Fund is also designed to adapt quickly to changing market conditions and to be able to take advantage of pricing anomalies within the market.
The Fund’s equity income sleeve will include exposures to dividend-paying stocks, business development companies (BDCs), preferred securities, mortgage REITs and MLPs. The Fund’s fixed income sleeve will be made up of exposures to “fallen angel” high yield bonds, international and emerging market high yield bonds, emerging market local currency bonds and 10-20 year U.S. Treasuries.
The Fund’s lead portfolio manager is David Schassler, Portfolio Manager and Head of Quantitative Investment Solutions at VanEck. He brings nearly 20 years of direct experience to this role, and in the case of INC, will work alongside the firm’s fixed income and equity investment teams, as they navigate the current markets and identify key opportunities for attractive income generation.
“The search for yield can no longer be a static activity,” said Schassler. “Amidst rising rates, global volatility and increased economic uncertainty, an active approach that seeks income across a wide range of fixed income and equity exposures will be a powerful tool for investors and advisors. We are thrilled to be launching INC, an ETF that we believe offers a compelling, comprehensive, dynamic, risk-managed means of accessing and allocating among income generating assets.”
INC joins an asset allocation-focused VanEck ETF lineup that also includes the VanEck Inflation Allocation ETF (RAAX), VanEck Muni Allocation ETF (MAAX) and VanEck Long/Flat Trend ETF (LFEQ).

VanEck has a history of looking beyond the financial markets to identify trends that are likely to create impactful investment opportunities. We were one of the first U.S. asset managers to offer investors access to international markets. This set the tone for the firm’s drive to identify asset classes and trends – including gold investing in 1968, emerging markets in 1993, and exchange traded funds in 2006 – that subsequently shaped the investment management industry.
Today, VanEck offers active and passive strategies with compelling exposures supported by well-designed investment processes. As of September 30, 2022, VanEck managed approximately $60.8 billion in assets, including mutual funds, ETFs and institutional accounts. The firm’s capabilities range from core investment opportunities to more specialized exposures to enhance portfolio diversification. Our actively managed strategies are fueled by in-depth, bottom-up research and security selection from portfolio managers with direct experience in the sectors and regions in which they invest. Investability, liquidity, diversity, and transparency are key to the experienced decision-making around market and index selection underlying VanEck’s passive strategies.
Since our founding in 1955, putting our clients’ interests first, in all market environments, has been at the heart of the firm’s mission.
