3 ETF disclosure Fund shares are not individually redeemable and will be issued and redeemed at their NAV only through certain authorized broker-dealers in large, specified blocks of shares called creation units and otherwise can be bought and sold only through exchange trading. Creation units are issued and redeemed principally in kind. Shares may trade at a premium or discount to their NAV in the secondary market. You will incur brokerage expenses when trading fund shares in the secondary market. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Returns for actual fund investments may differ from what is shown because of differences in timing, the amount invested and fees and expenses. Indices are unmanaged and do not reflect the payment of transaction costs, advisory fees or expenses that are associated with an investment in a fund. An index s performance is not illustrative of a fund s performance. Indices are not securities in which investments can be made. The funds are the successors to the Yorkville High Income MLP ETF and Yorkville High Income Infrastructure MLP ETF pursuant to reorganizations that took place on February 22, Prior to that date, the funds had no investment operations. Accordingly, for periods prior to that date, any fund performance information is that of the Yorkville High Income MLP ETF and Yorkville High Income Infrastructure MLP ETF. The VanEck Vectors High Income MLP ETF and VanEck Vectors High Income Infrastructure MLP ETF (the "Funds") are treated as regular corporations for federal income tax, which differs from most investment companies. Unlike traditional exchange-traded funds (ETFs), the Funds are subject to U.S. federal income tax as well as state and local income taxes. Further, the amount of taxes currently paid by the Funds will vary depending on the amount of income, and gains derived from investments and/or sales of MLP interests and such taxes will reduce your return. A portion of the Funds distributions is expected to be treated as a return of capital for tax purposes. To the extent distributions represent a return of capital; an investor s cost basis will be reduced at the time of sale potentially increasing taxes owed. Solactive indices have been licensed by Solactive AG for use by Van Eck Associates Corporation. VanEck Vectors ETFs are not sponsored, endorsed, issued, sold, or promoted by Solactive AG nor does this company make any representations regarding the advisability of investing in VanEck Vectors ETFs. An investment in the Funds may be subject to risks which include, among others, risks specific to MLPs such as tax risks, limited control of management, limited rights to vote on matters affecting the MLPs, and conflict of interests between the general partner or managing member and limited partners, all of which may adversely affect the Funds. MLP investments can be affected by macro-economic and other factors affecting the stock market in general, expectations of interest rates, and factors affecting the energy sector and infrastructure MLP industry. The complex tax nature of MLPs may adversely affect the Funds. The Funds may defer income taxes for many years on gains attributable to their underlying MLP holdings and the deferred tax liability used to calculate the Funds NAV could vary dramatically from the Funds actual tax liability. Upon sale of an MLP security, the Funds may be liable for previously deferred taxes and, as a result, the determination of the Funds actual tax liability may substantially increase expenses and lower the Funds NAV.

Based on average daily yields. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. MLPs represented by the Alerian MLP Index, a widely followed composite index often cited as representative of the broad MLP industry. Alerian MLP Index is meant to represent the MLP industry as a whole. Investment in the Funds may provide exposure to MLPs that differ significantly from Alerian MLP Index exposure. See current VanEck Vectors High Income MLP ETF and VanEck Vectors High Income MLP ETF performance on page 13. See disclaimers on pages 2 and 3. See definitions and index disclaimers on page 14. U.S. government bonds are guaranteed by the full faith and credit of the United States government. Corporate and other bonds are not guaranteed by the full faith and credit of the United States and carry the credit risk of the issuer. U.S. Treasuries are exempt from state and local taxes, but subject to federal taxes. Other securities listed are subject to federal, state and local taxes. Prices of equity securities change in response to many factors, including the historical and prospective earnings of the issuer, the value of its assets, general economic conditions, interest rates, investor perceptions and market liquidity. Prices of bonds change in response to factors such as interest rates and the issuer s credit worthiness, among others. Investing in smaller companies involves risks not associated with investing in more established companies such as business risk, stock price fluctuations and illiquidity. 4

6 Distinct focus on yield YMLP and YMLI seek to track Solactive indices that focus on high income master limited partnerships (MLPs ). Their respective indices screen constituents based on business activity, current yield, distribution coverage ratio, and distribution growth. This methodology provides distinct access to high income MLPs and results in comprehensive MLP industry exposure among the two indices.

7 Potential for tax-deferred income 70-90% of MLP distributions have consisted of tax-deferred return of capital 1 Investors do not pay taxes on return of capital distributions, potentially increasing after-tax income However, return of capital will reduce an investor s tax basis, which may result in larger taxable gains on a subsequent sale of shares and, thus, may reduce after-tax returns C-Corp Tax Structure VanEck Vectors High Income MLP ETF and VanEck Vectors High Income Infrastructure MLP ETF are taxed as corporations Allows the ETFs to provide 100% exposure to MLPs and pass through the tax nature of the underlying MLP distributions, while providing shareholders with 1099s, instead of K-1s C-Corp ETFs are taxed at the fund level. Structure also requires ETFs to accrue deferred-tax liabilities which may cause ETFs to underperform benchmarks in rising markets 1 Source: Alerian.

The fund s accrued deferred tax liability, if any, is reflected each day in the fund s net asset value per share and may vary greatly from year to year. State franchise taxes are separate and distinct from state income taxes.

13 Performance history VanEck Vectors High Income MLP ETF - as of 3/31/2016 1YR 3YR LIFE 3/13/ Day SEC Yield 1 NAV Share Price Index VanEck Vectors High Income Infrastructure MLP ETF - as of 3/31/2016 1YR 3YR LIFE 3/31/ Day SEC Yield 1 Share Price NAV Index Source: VanEck; FactSet. Data as of 3/31/2016. Returns are average annualized total returns, except those for periods of less than one year, which are cumulative. 1 The 30-Day SEC Yield has been adjusted to reflect estimates for return of capital that would result in a reduction of income to the 30-Day SEC Yield calculation which may cause the yield to be negative. Performance data quoted represents past performance which is no guarantee of future results and which may be lower or higher than current performance. Returns reflect temporary contractual fee waivers and/or expense reimbursements. Had the ETF incurred all expenses and fees, investment returns would have been reduced. Investment returns and ETF share values will fluctuate so that investors' shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. ETF returns assume that dividends and capital gains distributions have been reinvested in the Fund at NAV. The "Net Asset Value" (NAV) of a VanEck Vectors Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) is determined at the close of each business day, and represents the dollar value of one share of the fund; it is calculated by taking the total assets of the fund, subtracting total liabilities, and dividing by the total number of shares outstanding. The NAV is not necessarily the same as the ETF 's intraday trading value. VanEck Vectors ETF investors should not expect to buy or sell shares at NAV. All indices are unmanaged and include the reinvestment of all dividends, but do not reflect the payment of transaction costs, advisory fees or expenses that are associated with an investment in the fund. An index s performance is not illustrative of the Fund s performance. Indices are not securities in which investments can be made. See disclosures on pages 2 and 3. 13

14 Index descriptions and definitions Index returns assume reinvestment of all income and do not reflect any management fees or brokerage expenses associated with fund returns.
