VEAVanguard FTSE Developed Markets ETF
VEA Fund Description
VEA 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. 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. Stocks are selected and weighted for the index to ensure the holdings are investable, which should allow for the ETF to track the performance return using a replication strategy. Index components are reviewed semi-annually in March and September. In all, VEA offers great exposure to the space.
