Vanguard ETFs® offer distinct advantages
Vanguard's ETF approach is grounded in more than three decades of indexing experience.
Vanguard ETFs are share classes of our index funds, a patented approach that provides economies of scale and helps reduce costs. With a 0.15% Vanguard ETF average expense ratio1 versus a 0.58% average expense ratio for the ETF industry2, you capture more of the market's returns. Whether through benchmark tracking, cost controls, or benchmark construction and selection—Vanguard constantly seeks ways to perfect our indexing strategies to benefit investors.
1 The Vanguard ETF average expense ratio reflects the expense ratios reported in each ETF's current prospectus.
