Fee cuts show Vanguard's commitment to giving UK investors value for money

23 October 2019 | Topical insights


Vanguard has today demonstrated its commitment to giving investors a fair deal by reducing fees across many of our single-strategy index funds.

Earlier this year we reduced the fees on four of our active funds. We have now cut the OCF on an additional 46 funds in all.

The latest changes ensure Vanguard’s UCITS index funds and ETFs remain attractive, by reducing headline fees (OCFs) and increasing consistency across the ranges. As a result of the move, the average OCF across the full range of Vanguard funds available to retail investors in the UK is now just 0.2%.

In the case of ETFs, the average OCF is down to 0.1%, while for index-tracking mutual funds it is reduced to 0.15%.

Since 1975, Vanguard has led the way in giving investors a fair deal by providing good-value, high-quality investments. It is the reason that over 30 million people worldwide trust Vanguard with £4.7 trillion of their savings .

Studies have repeatedly shown that low costs are one of the best indicators of a fund’s potential to perform over time .

We are delighted to support you in helping your clients achieve investment success.
