Vanguard launches five ETFs on TSX

Vanguard Investments Canada has launched five Canada-domiciled exchange-traded funds (ETFs) on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX).

The three equity and two bond ETFs bring to 21 the number of ETFs offered by the firm.
 
The new ETFs are: Vanguard FTSE All-World ex Canada Index ETF, Vanguard FTSE Developed Europe Index ETF, Vanguard FTSE Developed Asia Pacific Index ETF, Vanguard US Aggregate Bond Index ETF (CAD-hedged) and Vanguard Global ex-US Aggregate Bond Index ETF (CAD-hedged).
 
Vanguard FTSE All-World ex Canada Index ETF is the first to track the performance of a broad global equity index that focuses on developed and emerging markets, excluding Canada.
 
Vanguard FTSE Developed Asia Pacific Index ETF is the first to track the performance of a broad Asia Pacific equity index that focuses on developed Asia Pacific markets.
 
Vanguard US Aggregate Bond Index ETF (CAD-hedged) and Vanguard Global ex-US Aggregate Bond Index ETF (CAD-hedged) are the first to offer exposure to US and international government bonds with currency hedging, in addition to other fixed-income securities.
 
"Our new broad market global and international index ETFs will better enable individual investors, financial advisors and institutions to obtain broader diversification and lower risk to their overall portfolios," says Atul Tiwari, managing director of Vanguard Investments Canada. "Our research shows that investors display a persistent and significant home bias, and Canadian investors should consider allocating assets to international securities."
