Vanguard’s ETF Offers Canada
December 31st, 2006 at 1:35pm by Tom Lydon
Vanguard filed with the SEC to launch a new exchange traded fund (ETF). This ETF is tied to the FTSE All-World ex-USA Index. Seeking Alpha states that the new ETF is different than most international funds on the market because it includes a 5% exposure to Canada. Most funds focus on Europe, Latin America and Asia.
iShares MSCI Canada (EWC) has been performing well, up 16% this year. Is this an indication of what to expect from Vanguard’s new ETF?
