Since Wednesday, two new exchange traded funds issued by VanEck have been tradable on Xetra and via Börse Frankfurt.

The fund excludes investments in companies that commit serious violations of social norms or generate revenues from civilian firearms, tobacco, and energy production.

The Vanek Sustainable Future of Food UCITS ETF invests in companies that generate at least half of their revenue from plant-based or cultivated meat, protein, or dairy alternatives, vertical or urban agriculture, precision agriculture, food flavourings and functional ingredients, and organic or health food.
