What is the VanEck Global Healthcare Leaders ETF (HLTH)?

Invest in good health.

With HLTH, you can access a portfolio of global healthcare leaders comprising the most fundamentally strong companies. 

HLTH ETF invests in 50 fundamentally sound and attractively valued companies with the best growth prospects in the healthcare sector.

Long-term drivers of the healthcare sector include global population growth and ageing demographics, the prevalence of chronic diseases will continue to drive up the demand for healthcare, and emerging economies needing massive levels of healthcare expenditures to close the gap with their developed market counterparts.

What are the benefits of the HLTH ETF?

  • Help defend your portfolio with healthcare stocks. Healthcare demand is relatively inelastic. For example, consumers still need to purchase pharmaceuticals and care for their wellbeing even if the cost of living is on the rise.

  • Healthcare companies have historically outperformed when manufacturing activity (proxy for economic activity) slows.

  • With global GDP projected to grow to US$137 trillion by 2030, and Healthcare expenditures projected to remain at 10% of GDP, this translates into US$14 trillion in Healthcare spending per year by the end of this decade.

Does HLTH pay dividends?

Yes, the HLTH ETF pays dividends once a year.

What are the risks of the VanEck Global Healthcare Leaders ETF?

An investment in the HLTH ETF carries risks associated with ASX trading time differences, financial markets generally, individual company management, industry sectors, foreign currency, currency hedging, country or sector concentration, political, regulatory and tax risks, fund operations, liquidity and tracking an index.
