Vanguard lowers fees again

I normally don’t have much brand loyalty. I’ll buy an iPhone, but my next phone is just as likely to be a Samsung. One of the few companies I do respect is Vanguard. They have a long history of helping those of us that don’t have access to big, successful hedge funds. They created index funds and have led the way in reducing fees. Their work there continues, recently announcing another round of fee cuts. This one affects 10 ETFs as detailed in the table below. A notable inclusion is emerging market fund VWO, which big names like Ray Dalio hold significant shares of. The rightmost column includes the prior and new expense ratio associated with each fund.

Fund Type Old to New Fee (%)
VWO FTSE Emerging Markets ETF 0.14 to 0.12
VGK FTSE Europe ETF 0.10 to 0.09
VPL FTSE Pacific ETF 0.10 to 0.09
VEU FTSE All-World ex-US ETF 0.11 to 0.09
VSS FTSE All-World ex-US Small-Cap ETF 0.13 to 0.12
VYM High Dividend Yield ETF 0.08 to 0.06
VT Total World Stock ETF 0.10 to 0.09
VTEB Tax-Exempt Bond ETF 0.09 to 0.08
BNDX Total International Bond ETF 0.11 to 0.09
VXUS Total International Stock ETF 0.11 to 0.09
