Vanguard FTSE Developed Markets ETF

Founding Date
Parent Entity

Vanguard FTSE Developed Markets ETF is a core holding of many long-term portfolios, and can also be used as an efficient tool for overweighting ex-U.S. developed markets. Like most international ETFs, VEA is heavy on exposure to large caps, introducing potential sector biases and following a passively managed full-replication approach. The Fund weights holdings by market capitalization, an approach that benefits investors by capturing the market’s consensus opinion of each stock’s value while mitigating turnover. VEA is also a low-fee fund that provides a convenient way to match the performance of a diversified group of stocks of large-, mid-, and small-cap companies located in Canada and the major markets of Europe and the Pacific Region.
