Vanguard to broaden low-cost ETF line-up


Vanguard Investments Canada has submitted a final prospectus for five new Canadian-domiciled exchange-traded funds to the relevant securities regulatory authorities.

Vanguard expects to list the new ETFs on Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) subject to meeting all regulatory and TSX requirements.

The proposed ETFs are: Vanguard FTSE Canadian High Dividend Yield Index ETF; Vanguard FTSE Canadian Capped REIT Index ETF; Vanguard Canadian Short-Term Corporate Bond Index ETF; Vanguard S&P 500 Index ETF; and Vanguard S&P 500 Index ETF (CAD-hedged).

Vanguard Investments Canada’s initial line-up of six ETFs was listed on TSX on 6 December 2011, and has attracted more than CAD300m in total assets. With the addition of the five new ETFs, Vanguard’s 11 ETFs will feature a low average management fee of 0.23 per cent.

“While you cannot control what happens in stock or bond markets, one thing an investor can have a degree of control over is what they pay,” says Atul Tiwari (pictured), managing director of Vanguard Investments Canada. “Over the long-term, the compounding effect of fees can detract significantly from actual performance. However, Vanguard ETFs are distinguished in the market by low cost, broadly diversified portfolios.”
