VEA Fund Description

The Vanguard FTSE Developed Markets ETF tracks a market-cap weighted index of large-, mid- and small-cap stocks from developed markets outside the US.

VEA Factset Analytics Insight

VEA delivers excellent coverage of developed-market equities outside the US at a very low all-in price. The fund includes small-caps and Canadian stocks in the portfolio, two areas of the market it had previously ignored prior to a change to a transitional FTSE index in December 2015. The ETF completed the transition and switched to the final version of the FTSE index on June 1, 2016.

The fund's fee is among the segment's lowest and its basket is easy to access, especially at the retail level, where bid/ask spreads are minuscule. The inclusion of small-cap exposure may have a moderately adverse effect on underlying liquidity, however. In all, VEA offers great exposure to space at low cost.
