Vanguard launches new US Treasury 0-1 Year Bond UCITS ETF

Vanguard today launched the Vanguard US Treasury 0-1 Year Bond UCITS ETF. The ETF is designed to give value to investors across the globe looking to manage USD denominated fixed income portfolios.

The Vanguard US Treasury 0-1 Year Bond UCITS ETF is available to investors for an ongoing charges figure (OCF) of just 0.07 per cent (unhedged USD share class). The ETF is listed on the London Stock Exchange, and tracks the Bloomberg Barclays Short Treasury Index.

Matthew Piro, Head of Portfolio Review Department, Europe commented:

“Vanguard believes investors have the best chance of investment success through putting together broadly-diversified, balanced portfolios and holding them for the long-term. As investors have increasingly voted with their feet in favour of low-cost, investment products, we have seen growing, and increasingly global demand for our equity and fixed income UCITS ETF range.

“In particular, investors world-wide value the transparency and regulatory oversight that the UCITS regime provides. The Vanguard US Treasury 0-1 Year Bond UCITS ETF is an important addition to our UCITS ETF range, and another part of the puzzle in helping to meet the evolving needs of long-term investors across many countries.”
