Good news for ETF investors: The price war among investment firms continues and Vanguard just became the latest company to reduce the annual expense ratios on several of its ETFs.
The Vanguard ETFs impacted by the lower fees are the following funds:
–Vanguard FTSE All World ex-US ETF (NYSEArca: VEU) is now 0.22 percent
–Vanguard FTSE All World ex-US Small Cap ETF (NYSEArca: VSS) is now 0.33 percent
–Vanguard MSCI Europe ETF (NYSEArca: VGK) is now 0.14 percent
–Vanguard MSCI Pacific ETF (NYSEArca: VPL) is now 0.14 percent
–Vanguard MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (NYSEArca: VWO) is now 0.22 percent
–Vanguard Total Stock World ETF (NYSEArca: VT) is now 0.25 percent
Also, Vanguard inserted MSCI into the names of four Vanguard ETFs linked to MSCI indexes. For example, the previously named Vanguard Europe Pacific ETF (VEA) is now known as the Vanguard MSCI EAFE ETF. The ETF Ticker symbols for these MSCI linked funds remain unchanged.
Fee cuts within the ETF marketplace have been happening from two main angles.
