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. VPL charges a very low fee, and the fund's liquidity is solid. Still, note that underlying markets don’t trade when VPL does, so intraday NAV is somewhat unreliable as a reference for limit orders . With billions of dollars in AUM, the ETF is a clear favorite among investors, and earns our Analyst Pick ribbon.
