Fee cuts show Vanguard's commitment to giving Swiss 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 its exchange-traded fund (ETF) and mutual fund range.

Fees have been lowered on 36 funds available to Swiss investors1, including 11 ETFs and 25 index funds.

The latest changes ensure Vanguard’s UCITS index funds and ETFs remain highly competitive, by reducing headline fees (OCFs) and increasing consistency across the ranges. This will help to simplify the choices available to investors by providing more uniform access to Vanguard’s range of investment products.

Since 1975, Vanguard has led the way in giving investors a fair deal by providing good-value, high-quality investments.

It’s what we’re known for and what has enabled Vanguard to grow into a company managing EUR 5.2 trillion (as at September 30th, 2019), as increasing numbers of investors have embraced our message and trusted us with their investments.

These latest reductions show Vanguard’s continued commitment to delivering value for money.
