Seven New Vanguard ETFs Are Still Coming Soon

News summary by MFWire's editors

Look for Vanguard to launch a squad of new ETFs in the next few weeks. Spokeswoman Rebecca Katz confirmed that the 75-day SEC silent period expired on Monday, and the funds should be released soon, although no date has been specified.

Hoping to steal some market control from Barclays' iShares, Vanguard has created seven new bond index funds, the Scottsdale Sector Bond Index Funds, that will be available as institutional fund shares and ETFs.

The seven funds include the Vanguard Intermediate-Term Corporate Bond Index Fund, Intermediate-Term Government Bond Index Fund, Long-Term Corporate Bond Index Fund, Long-Term Government Bond Index Fund, Mortgage-Backed Securities Index Fund, Short-Term Corporate Bond Index Fund, Vanguard Short-Term Government Bond Index Fund, and the Vanguard Treasury Money Market Fund. According to a filing with the SEC, the funds will carry expense ratios of between 9 and 15 basis points.

The seven new funds will overlap with 92 percent of the Barclays aggregate Bond Index, according to Dan Wiener, editor of The Independent Adviser for Vanguard Investors. The funds will not invest in foreign government bonds or commercial mortgage backed bonds.
