Low-cost building blocks for a diversified portfolio

We launched our first exchange-traded fund (ETF) in Europe back in 2012. It was still early in the ETF journey but our vision was fixed on the future. This is because all our ETFs share a common purpose: They are designed to be held for decades. They give you exposure to enduring investment strategies built for the long term, through core portfolio holdings tracking industry-leading indices, not niche themes.

Why invest in Vanguard ETFs?

Clarity and reassurance

Each one of our ETFs is built in the same uncomplicated way, so investors know exactly what they are getting. They’re also highly diversified, helping to minimise volatility and risk.

Robust approach, enduring value

Our disciplined approach means we don’t look to meet short-term trends, but only launch core ETF building blocks built for long-term investment.

Driving down costs

We always aim to reduce costs consistently across our range, not just as a short-term pricing tactic.

Index fund pioneers

We launched the first index fund for retail investors in 1976. Over time we’ve refined our approach, and launched our focused range of ETFs in Europe in 2012.

Our ETFs

Equity ETFs

Our equity ETFs provide investors access to a basket of hundreds or even thousands of companies. Low-cost and simple by nature, index investing can be the ideal foundation for almost any investment portfolio, helping to achieve broad diversification.

Investment risk information

The value of investments, and the income from them, may fall or rise and investors may get back less than they invested.

Some funds invest in emerging markets which can be more volatile than more established markets. As a result the value of your investment may rise or fall.

Investments in smaller companies may be more volatile than investments in well-established blue chip companies.

ETF shares can be bought or sold only through a broker. Investing in ETFs entails stockbroker commission and a bid-offer spread which should be considered fully before investing.

The Funds may use derivatives in order to reduce risk or cost and/or generate extra income or growth. The use of  derivatives could increase or reduce exposure to underlying assets and result   in greater fluctuations of the Fund's net asset value. A derivative is a financial contract whose value is based on the value of a financial asset (such as a share, bond, or currency) or a market index.

Some funds invest in securities which are denominated in different currencies. Movements in currency exchange rates can affect the return of investments.
