Vanguard lowers fee on Canadian Fixed Income ETF


Vanguard Investments Canada has lowered the management fee on one of its largest fixed income ETFs, the Canadian Aggregate Bond Index ETF (VAB), by four basis points from 0.12 per cent to 0.08 per cent.

“Vanguard’s mission is to give investors the best chance for investment success and part of that commitment is to lower the cost of investing for all Canadians,” says Atul Tiwari, managing director for Vanguard Investments Canada Inc. “As we have recently seen, fixed income ETFs can play a key role as a stabilising force in a portfolio, particularly during times of stock market volatility, and we are pleased investors will receive a fee reduction in one of our largest ETFs.
“As a global low-cost leader, this continues our trend of delivering high-quality and enduring cost-effective investing solutions for Canadian investors and financial advisors, following fee reductions in 2013, 2014 and 2015. Canadians are realising that investing fees matter more than ever, particularly in the bond markets, where yields are below their historical averages and costs erode a larger share of returns than they have in the past.”
