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.

VPL MSCI ESG Analytics Insight

Vanguard FTSE Pacific ETF has an MSCI ESG Fund Rating of A based on a score of 6.55 out of 10. The MSCI ESG Fund Rating measures the resiliency of portfolios to long-term risks and opportunities arising from environmental, social, and governance factors. ESG Fund Ratings range from best (AAA) to worst (CCC). Highly rated funds consist of companies that tend to show strong and/or improving management of financially relevant environmental, social and governance issues. These companies may be more resilient to disruptions arising from ESG events.

The fund’s Peer Rank reflects the ranking of a fund’s MSCI ESG Fund Quality Score against the scores of other funds within the same peer group, as defined by the Thomson Reuters Lipper Global Classification. Vanguard FTSE Pacific ETF ranks in the 63th percentile within its peer group and in the 65th percentile within the global universe of all funds covered by MSCI ESG Fund Ratings.
