Vanguard launches an ETF based on the DAX


Vanguard has launched the Vanguard DAX UCITS ETF, providing access to 30 of the largest and most liquid companies in Germany.

The firm writes that for 0.10 per cent OCF, savers can invest in the globally recognised manufacturers, car makers, and industrial companies that power Europe’s largest economy. The ETF is listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) and Deutsche Börse.
The launch coincides with the 30th anniversary of the DAX Index. VanGuard writes that over the past 30 years, during which Germany has experienced re-unification, the establishment of the European Union, the introduction of the Euro, three chancellors, the Dot-Com boom, and the Global Financial crises of 2008, the DAX has generated an annualised return of 9 per cent (Vanguard calculations using Bloomberg data, as at December 2017). A hypothetical EUR100 investment made in 1987, would potentially be worth EUR1291 today, although performance may have been diminished once fees were applied.
