Vanguard Launches International Real Estate ETF

By on November 2, 2010

Vanguard Group launched an international REIT ETF yesterday. VNQI will attempt to replicate the S&P Global ex-U.S. Property Index, a free-float-adjusted, market-capitalization-weighted index that measures the equity market performance of 425 international real estate securities from 35 developed and emerging markets.

The ETF has an expense ratio of 0.35 percent.

SMA Comment: Just about every conceivable market segment is now covered by an ETF. All an investor needs to worry about now is the expense ratio and allocating prudently.
