Vanguard launches three HK-domiciled ETFs


Vanguard is expanding its product offering with the launch of three Hong Kong-domiciled exchange-traded funds (ETFs).

The new ETFs have begun trading on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange and bring the number of Vanguard ETF offerings in the Hong Kong market to four.
In 2013, Vanguard introduced its first ETF in the market: Vanguard FTSE Asia ex Japan Index ETF.
The low-cost offerings will provide Hong Kong investors an opportunity to diversify their portfolios across the developed markets of Europe and Japan, or to obtain exposure to higher yield stocks across the Asia region.
The three new ETFs are:
1.The Vanguard FTSE Developed Europe Index ETF is the first ETF to provide European equity exposure.
2.The Vanguard FTSE Japan Index ETF is the first physical, market-cap-weighted ETF to provide exposure to Japan equities.
3.The Vanguard FTSE Asia ex Japan High Dividend Yield Index ETF is the first physical, market-cap-weighted Asia ex Japan high dividend yield index ETF.
Shelly Painter, Vanguard Asia regional managing director, says: "Today marks an important step forward for Vanguard in Hong Kong with the expansion of our ETF product line-up. We are developing core building block ETFs to help long-term investors assemble globally diversified portfolios.
“Importantly these products give Hong Kong investors more choices and break new ground in the market by being the first physical-backed ETFs offering exposure to the developed European markets and to Japan.
“In keeping with Vanguard's low-cost philosophy, the three new ETFs have low total expense ratios."
