Three reasons to consider VDNI
1. Get Your US All Cap Exposure through an Innovative ETF – VDNI tracks a pioneering index

2. Unlock the Diversity Value – Research finds that diversity at the top is a catalyst for outperformance
Three of the latest reports from McKinsey2 showed that companies in the top quartile for gender diversity on executive teams were 25% more likely to have above-average profitability than companies in the fourth quartile, up from 21% in 2017 and 15% in 2014. The performance gap is widening between fast movers and slow movers in that department.

3. Companies' Leadership Culture Drives Sustainable Corporate Performance – Invest in the first US ETF focused on diversified human capital in leadership positions accounting for both gender and ethnicity
Diversification And Diversity have more in common than their Latin root; they both carry value. Human capital is a capital, a key driving force of any business, that too enjoys the benefits of diversification. Diversity at the senior leadership level is a foreteller of a healthy company culture, which in turn strengthens the levers and drivers of sustainable corporate performance.
