ETF Periodic Statements - ASIC relief
The following information applies to all the ETFs listed above excluding the Vanguard® US Total Market Shares Index ETF (VTS) and Vanguard® All-World ex-US Shares Index ETF (VEU).
Under ASIC Class Order [13/1200], Vanguard must provide a periodic statement to unitholders with information about the performance relative to the investment objectives of the ETF that the issuer believes is sufficient for the investor to make an informed assessment. Where a unitholder has acquired or disposed of ETF Units during the period and the ETF issuer does not know the price at which the ETF Units were transferred, the periodic statement does not need to include the amount paid in relation to the transfer or the return on investment during the reporting period (provided that the ETF issuer is not able to calculate the return on investment). In this instance the periodic statement will explain why this information was not included and describes how it can be obtained.
