Recent Announcement

On June 2 2015, Vanguard announced that four Vanguard international equity index funds will more broadly diversify with the addition of Small Cap stocks, and will follow broader FTSE All Cap benchmarks as a result. China A-shares will be added to Vanguard Emerging Markets Stock Index Fund, making it the first broad-based emerging markets index fund to include exposure to these shares. The fund’s ETF share class - VWO, the world’s largest emerging-markets ETF - will be the first of its kind to offer China A-shares along with All Cap exposure. Canadian exposure will be added to Vanguard Developed Markets Index Fund, making it the largest developed markets index fund to offer All Cap exposure to all developed markets outside the US, including Canada.
