Vanguard lists seven low-cost ETFs on NYSE Euronext in Amsterdam and Paris

Vanguard has listed seven low-cost equity ETFs on the NYSE Euronext in Amsterdam and Paris.

The Dutch and French debuts come less than two weeks after the asset manager broadened its European ETF line-up, which first launched in the UK in May 2012, and a little more than four months after it entered the Swiss market via listings on the SIX Swiss Exchange.

The seven ETFs, all of which maintain existing listings on the London Stock Exchange, are equity based and, barring the US fund which follows the S&P 500, track FTSE indices.

Six of the ETFs provide broad market exposure to markets including developed Europe, developed Asia Pacific ex Japan, Japan, United States, emerging markets and the world, while the seventh offers exposure to a global portfolio of high-dividend yielding stocks.

All of the ETFs are physically replicated and listed in euros. Their total expense ratios (TERs) range from 0.09% for the Vanguard S&P 500 ETF (VUSA) to 0.45% for the Vanguard FTSE Emerging Markets ETF  (VFEM), putting them squarely among the lowest-cost products in the market.

Axel Lomholt, Vanguard head of product, international, commented: “Listing the ETFs in euros in Amsterdam and Paris underscores our commitment to European markets. Making our ETFs more readily available across Europe gives more investors a low-cost way to reach their investment goals.”

Vanguard launched its first ETF in 2001 in the US and now manages nearly $290 billion in ETF assets across 88 products worldwide.

Vanguard’s full NYSE Euronext line-up is as follows:

Fund TER Ticker
Vanguard FTSE Developed Europe UCITS ETF 0.15% VEUR
Vanguard FTSE Developed Asia Pacific ex Japan UCITS ETF 0.22% VAPX
Vanguard FTSE Japan UCITS ETF 0.19% VJPN
Vanguard FTSE All-World High Dividend Yield UCITS ETF 0.29% VHYL
Vanguard S&P 500 ETF 0.09% VUSA
Vanguard FTSE Emerging Markets ETF 0.45% VFEM
Vanguard FTSE All-World ETF 0.25% VWRL
