VPLVanguard FTSE Pacific ETF
VPL Fund Description
VPL tracks the FTSE Developed Asia Pacific Index, a market-cap-weighted index of securities in the developed markets of the Pacific region.
VPL Factset Analytics Insight
VPL does a very good job at capturing the Developed Asia Pacific region. The fund covers all the key countries in the Pacific, with a heavy emphasis on Japan—the largest of the developed economies in the region. VPL also includes South Korea as a developed country, while our benchmark deems it an emerging market. The fund added small-caps in marketlike proportion with an October 1, 2015 transition to a FTSE All Cap index, a subtle move toward more representative coverage. Still, note that underlying markets don’t trade when VPL does, so intraday NAV is somewhat unreliable as a reference for limit orders. The fund may hold all, or substantially all, of its assets in the common stocks included in the index to generally provide a similar investment profile.
