Vanguard has filed a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission for seven new bond index funds and exchange-traded funds.

The new offerings will bring the total number of Vanguard Bond Index Funds to 12.

The funds will offer ETF shares and Signal Shares with expected expense ratios of 0.15 per cent, and institutional shares with an expense ratio of 0.09 per cent. The funds are expected to be available for purchase in late 2009.

The new funds are: Short-Term Government Bond Index Fund; Intermediate-Term Government Bond Index Fund; Long-Term Government Bond Index Fund; Short-Term Corporate Bond Index Fund; Intermediate-Term Corporate Bond Index Fund; Long-Term Corporate Bond Index Fund; and Mortgage-Backed Securities Index Fund.

‘Vanguard has a quarter-century of experience in bond index management, and expanding our range of funds is a logical extension of our capabilities,’ says Bill McNabb, Vanguard president and chief executive. ‘Financial advisers and institutions want to construct broadly diversified fixed income portfolios, while retaining the ability to emphasize particular sectors or durations. Working in concert, our broad-based bond index funds and these new, more targeted funds can help to achieve this goal.’
