Vanguard completes transition to FTSE benchmarks


FTSE Group has announced the retirement of its FTSE Emerging Transition Index following the completion last week of the six-month transition of the Vanguard Emerging Markets Stock Index Fund to FTSE’s emerging benchmark.

The USD70bn Vanguard fund and its related exchange-traded fund (VWO), the world’s largest emerging markets ETF, now track the FTSE Emerging Index, used by investors worldwide to benchmark emerging market equities.
The transition concludes the move of six international Vanguard funds with USD209 billion in AUM to FTSE indices, which was first announced on 2 October 2012. With the completion of the transition, USD241bn in total Vanguard assets now track FTSE benchmarks, approximately 40 per cent of this in ETF products.
Mark Makepeace (pictured), chief executive of FTSE Group, says: “We are delighted that Vanguard’s transition to our FTSE Emerging Index has been successfully completed. The transition is a great example of how FTSE continually works with partners worldwide to manage benchmark change and deliver comprehensive index solutions.”
