VanEck Vectors Low Carbon Energy ETF
*Unless otherwise stated, data provided by FactSet.

SMOG Fund Description

SMOG tracks a market-cap-weighted index of low carbon energy companies defined as deriving at least 50% of their revenues from alternative energy.

SMOG Factset Analytics Insight

SMOG holds a wide spectrum of companies that earn at least 1/2 their revenues from the broader renewable energy industry, which includes solar, wind, biofuel and geothermal players, as well as companies focused on energy efficiency. Its broad portfolio looks very different from our neutral and narrow benchmark. For one, SMOG heavily overweights the US, with names like Cree, Eaton, Tesla and First Solar dominating its top holdings. SMOG is also far more sector-diverse, reaching well beyond the renewable energy equipment and services sector that our benchmark heavily favors. Poor Fit score aside, the fund is fairly cheap and highly efficient. Overall, SMOG is a decent take on a segment where no fund Fits the benchmark well. Prior to July 9, 2019 the fund name was VanEck Vestors Global Alternative Energy ETF with the ticker GEX.
