Nasdaq Dividend Achievers Index ETFs list in Canada


Two new Vanguard exchange-traded funds based on the Nasdaq Dividend Achievers Select Index have listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

The Vanguard US Dividend Appreciation Index ETF and the Vanguard US Dividend Appreciation Index ETF (CAD-hedged) are now available to investors in Canada.
Nasdaq OMX acquired the Dividend Achievers Index Family from Mergent in December 2012, an acquisition that immediately catapulted Nasdaq OMX Global Indexes into one of the largest providers of dividend indexes in the world, based on benchmarked assets. The world’s largest dividend-themed ETF, the Vanguard Dividend Appreciation ETF (VIG), tracks the Nasdaq US Dividend Achievers Select Index. As of 15 August 2013, VIG had CAD16.8bn in assets under management.
"The launch of these new Dividend Achiever ETFs in Canada is another milestone in the international expansion of investment products tracking Nasdaq OMX indexes," says John Jacobs, executive vice president of Nasdaq OMX Global Indexes. "We are continuing to expand our overall index offering and improve our dividend and income family of indexes to help global investors benchmark this increasingly important theme."
