Vanguard reduces fees on UK active fund range


Vanguard has reduced the fees across its UK domiciled active fund range. The range celebrated its three year anniversary at the end of May. 

Prices on the Vanguard Global Equity and Vanguard Global Equity Income Funds have been reduced from 0.60 per cent to 0.48 per cent per annum. The price of Vanguard Global Balanced Fund, a multi-asset fund holding a 65 per cent/35 per cent mix of equites and fixed income investments, has been reduced from 0.60 per cent to 0.48 per cent. The price of Vanguard Global Emerging Market Fund has also been lowered from 0.80 per cent to 0.78 per cent.

Robyn Laidlaw, Head of UK Distribution for Vanguard, says: “We are pleased to reduce the price of our UK active fund range. Although widely known as a pioneer in index fund investing, active management has been a part of Vanguard’s approach since our founding in 1975. With over GBP1 trillion in active strategies (as at 30 April 2019) managed on behalf of investors globally, Vanguard’s active funds aim to provide stability, experience and a focus on long-term, low-cost investing to give investors the best chance of investment success.“
Vanguard’s UK domiciled active range was launched in 2016. Since then all four funds have outperformed their Morningstar peer group averages, with Vanguard Global Balanced Fund and Vanguard Global Emerging Markets Fund outperforming at least 75 per cent of their peers, known as “top-quartile” performance.
