RELATED TOPICS​

Vanguard Investments Canada has filed a preliminary prospectus with the Canadian securities regulators for its first suite of Canadian-domiciled exchange-traded funds (ETFs). The line-up of six funds includes equity and bond ETFs.

The Vanguard MSCI Canada Index ETF, will seek to track the performance of the MSCI Canada Index, the Vanguard Canadian Aggregate Bond Index ETF, will seek to track the performance of the Barclays Capital Global Aggregate Canadian Float Adjusted Bond Index and the Vanguard Canadian Short-Term Bond Index ETF, which will seek to track the performance of the Barclays Capital Global Aggregate Canadian Government/Credit 1-5 year Float Adjusted Bond Index.

The Vanguard MSCI US Broad Market Index ETF (CAD-hedged), will seek to track the performance of the MSCI U.S. Broad Market 100% Hedged to CAD Index, the Vanguard MSCI EAFE Index ETF (CAD-hedged), will seek to track the performance of the MSCI EAFE 100% Hedged to Canadian Dollars Index, and the Vanguard MSCI Emerging Markets Index ETF, will seek to track the performance of the MSCI Emerging Markets Index.

Vanguard Investments Canada Inc. will be the manager of the ETFs, and The Vanguard Group, Inc. will provide portfolio management services.

“Vanguard sees a tremendous amount of interest in ETFs from financial advisors and portfolio managers who are employing broad-based ETFs to build sound, balanced portfolios for their clients,” says Atul Tiwari (pictured), Managing Director of Vanguard Investments Canada Inc. “The underlying story, however, is the increasing popularity of the low-cost index approach, which is winning converts among investors who traditionally favoured individual stocks and actively managed mutual funds. Investors are increasingly recognizing the negative impact of high fees on long-term returns. ETFs offer an accessible and flexible way for all constituencies to index.”
