Vanguard Canada ETFs

by Avrex on September 17, 2012

Vanguard Investments Canada Inc. plans to expand its family of low-cost, high-quality exchange-traded funds to 11 with the addition of five new ETFs.

The most intriguing new ETF is the ‘Vanguard FTSE Canadian Capped REIT Index ETF’.
With a management fee of 0.35%, it’s cheaper than the current REIT ETFs that many of us have in our portfolios:
BMO Equal Weight REITs Index ETF (ZRE) (MER 0.55%)
iShares S&P/TSX Capped REIT Index Fund (XRE) (MER 0.60%)

Here’s the full lineup of 11 Vanguard ETFs.
I have highlighted in bold, the ETFs that I would consider placing in my investment portfolio.
