Vanguard Group Inc. is bringing its actively managed exchange-traded funds to the U.S., having recently filed a registration statement for six factor-based ETFs and one factor-based mutual fund.
Vanguard already offers suites of active factor ETFs in Canada and the U.K., but this marks the first time that it will offer such products in the U.S.
The new funds are expected to start trading in the first quarter of 2018.
The single factor-based ETFs will have estimated expense ratios of 0.13%. The two multifactor funds will have estimated expense ratios of 0.18%.
