Hi, it’s Community Host Alexandre Crépault here 👋 On February 22nd, 2021, I was joined by John Patrick Lee, head of product at fund manager VanEck. John manages the VanEck Vectors Video Gaming and eSports ETF, which launched in 2018. We discussed the drivers behind the sector’s growth and how investors can capitalize.

The conversation highlights included:

  • The video game industry is earning hundreds of billions in annual revenues, and reaching billions of consumers around the world.
  • Trends like demographic shifts and changing consumer demands provide long-term structural support for this growth industry.
  • Mobile gaming now represents the largest and fastest-growing platform by revenues.
  • Publishers are using new businesses models to accelerate growth through recurrent in-game spending

For those of you who asked about the ETF white paper John mentioned in the discussion, you’ll find it here
