Vanguard has expanded its ETF range with the launch of the Vanguard USD Emerging Markets Government Bond UCITS ETF on both the London Stock Exchange (LSE) and SIX SWISS Exchange (SIX).

The new, Irish-domiciled ETF offers regional exposure to investment grade US dollar denominated debt issued by governments in the emerging markets. The Vanguard USD Emerging Markets Government Bond UCITS ETF carries an OCF of 0.25 per cent making it the most competitively priced ETF in its peer group, the firm says. It will track the Bloomberg Barclays USD Emerging Markets Sovereign and Quasi Sovereign Index. For UK investors both GBP (VEMT) and USD (VDET) trading lines are available on the LSE.

Andreas Zingg, Head of ETF Distribution Management, Europe says: “Following the US election and increased speculation on the possibility of a US rate hike, emerging market bonds have been in the headlines. In our view, investors should continue to keep a long-term perspective.

“As part of a balanced portfolio, bonds provide an important source of diversification, helping to stabilise returns over the long term. Investors can maximise this effect by also diversifying within their fixed income allocations.

“Today’s Vanguard USD Emerging Markets Government Bond UCITS ETF launch is intended to help them do exactly that, providing another important building block for investors looking to build high-quality, broadly-diversified portfolios at a low-cost.”
