Vanguard factor ETFs: Harness low-cost, transparent exposure to factors

February 23, 2018 (Updated August 6, 2019)

The ETFs are a natural extension of our low-cost, actively managed lineup and reflect targeted exposure to desired factors that can help you help your clients to meet their goals.

Notes:

  • Vanguard ETF Shares are not redeemable with the issuing Fund other than in very large aggregations worth millions of dollars. Instead, investors must buy and sell Vanguard ETF Shares in the secondary market and hold those shares in a brokerage account. In doing so, the investor may incur brokerage commissions and may pay more than net asset value when buying and receive less than net asset value when selling.
  • Factor funds are subject to investment style risk, which is the chance that returns from the types of stocks in which the fund invests will trail returns from the stock market. Factor funds are subject to manager risk, which is the chance that poor security selection will cause the fund to underperform relevant benchmarks or other funds with a similar investment objective.
