The ETF Talks of the past few weeks have introduced you to some of the most prominent funds offered by Vanguard, a large and cost-effective exchange-traded fund (ETF) provider. Today, we continue that series with Vanguard Real Estate Investment Trust ETF (VNQ). With $43.1 billion in assets under management, VNQ is Vanguardâ??s fourth-largest ETF. Its competitive 0.1% expense ratio is 93% lower, according to Morningstar, than the average for similar funds.
This ETF, unlike the broader funds we have introduced so far, focuses on a particular sector. VNQ tracks an index that measures the performance of publicly traded equity real estate investment trusts (REITs). VNQ matches the holdings of the index as closely and as proportionately as possible.
