Vanguard launches two low-cost currency hedged ETFs

RELATED TOPICS​

Vanguard Investments Canada has launched two low-cost currency hedged exchange-traded funds (ETFs) – the Vanguard FTSE Developed Asia Pacific All Cap Index ETF (CAD-hedged) and the Vanguard FTSE Developed Europe All Cap Index ETF (CAD-hedged).

The ETFs, which have been listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX), provide currency-hedged exposure to developed Asia Pacific and European markets and follow all-capitalisation benchmarks that include large-, mid-, and small-capitalisation stocks.
 
"Many investors and advisors are looking for global diversification while limiting foreign currency risk. These ETFs, which are also available in an unhedged equivalent, are designed to meet that demand, within an all-cap approach," says Atul Tiwari, managing director for Vanguard Investments Canada. "This diversified exposure, at a low cost, can enhance flexibility in managing currency fluctuations."
 
Vanguard FTSE Developed Asia Pacific All Cap Index (CAD-hedged) ETF (VAH) seeks to track the performance of a broad Asia Pacific equity index that focuses on developed Asia Pacific markets. The index is hedged to the Canadian dollar. VAH complements Vanguard FTSE Developed Asia Pacific All Cap Index ETF (VA), which provides non-hedged exposure to developed Asia Pacific markets and features the same management fee of 0.20 per cent.
 
Vanguard FTSE Developed Europe All Cap Index (CAD-hedged) ETF (VEH) seeks to track the performance of a broad European equity index that focuses on developed European markets. The index is hedged to the Canadian dollar. VEH complements Vanguard FTSE Developed Europe All Cap Index ETF (VE), which provides non-hedged exposure to developed European markets and features the same management fee of 0.20 per cent.
