RELATED TOPICS​

Vanguard Investments Canada has listed four new low-cost Canadian fixed income exchange-traded funds (ETFs) on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX).

"In an uncertain market, investors and advisors are looking for high-quality fixed income solutions to build broadly diversified portfolios, at a low cost," says Atul Tiwari, managing director for Vanguard Investments Canada. "As a global fixed income leader, we are pleased to meet that need and build on our existing line-up of bond ETFs, which are among the lowest cost in their respective categories."
 
The Vanguard Canadian Government Bond Index ETF (VGV) seeks to track the performance of a broad Canadian government bond index and invests primarily in public, investment-grade government fixed income securities issued in Canada. This ETF seeks to track the Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate Canadian Government Float Adjusted Bond Index.
 
The Vanguard Canadian Corporate Bond Index ETF (VCB) seeks to track the performance of a broad Canadian credit bond index and invests primarily in public, investment-grade non-government fixed income securities listed in Canada. This ETF seeks to track the Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate Canadian Credit Float Adjusted Bond Index.
 
The Vanguard Canadian Short-Term Government Bond Index ETF (VSG) seeks to track the performance of a broad Canadian government bond index with a short-term dollar weighted average maturity and invests primarily in public, investment grade government fixed income securities issued in Canada. This ETF seeks to track the Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate Canadian Government 1-5 Year Float Adjusted Bond Index.
 
The Vanguard Canadian Long-Term Bond Index ETF (VLB) seeks to track the performance of a broad Canadian bond index with a long-term dollar weighted average maturity and invests primarily in public, investment grade fixed income securities issued in Canada. This ETF seeks to track the Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate Canadian 10+ Year Float Adjusted Bond Index.
 
"Bond ETFs provide a low cost, liquid and transparent alternative to holding bonds directly," says Tim Huver, head of product, Vanguard Investments Canada. "These ETFs provide the flexibility to position portfolios along the yield curve and take advantage of targeted exposure to corporate and government bonds.
 
"Vanguard now offers nine total fixed income ETFs in Canada including domestic, US and global bonds, to help provide investors with the building blocks to construct well-diversified portfolios.”
