Vanguard is becoming more worldly, as the provider has launched an all-world  exchange traded fund (ETF) on NYSE Arca.

Vanguard Total World Stock ETF (VT) is based on the FTSE All-World Index, and tracks the performance of 2,900 stocks of companies in 47 different countries, including both emerging and developed markets.

This adds to the circle of other all-world ETFs, aka one-size-fits-all investing. These types of ETFs are a good option for the investors who doesn’t have the time to do intensive research.
