At Vanguard diversification is one of our enduring investment principles. But diversification doesn't only mean looking overseas. It's just as important to invest in a wide range of domestic assets to diversify your clients' portfolios.
So you won't need to travel too far to discover the newest star in your ETF universe. With around 260 holdings, Vanguard's new Australian Corporate Fixed Interest Index ETF (VACF) offers your clients exposure to a wide range of investment-grade securities issued right here in Australia—in Australian dollars.
Our expanding product range means you can now select from 17 different ETFs to diversify your clients' investments across international equities, Australian equities, international fixed income and property securities—all while taking advantage of Vanguard's low cost, diversified approach to investing.
Our new ETF may suit investors looking to further diversify their asset allocation within fixed income.
Fixed income can play a vital role in a diversified portfolio by delivering a steady and reliable income stream with the potential for some capital growth.
Corporate bonds generally have less risk and lower returns than equities. So by offering your clients exposure to around 260 corporate bonds, our new ETF can reduce risk by offsetting volatility in other parts of their portfolios.
Vanguard's Capital Markets Team is available to provide you dedicated ETF trade and execution support. Alternatively, contact your Business Development Manager for more information relating to our range of ETFs.
