Vanguard MSCI International Small Companies Index ETF
Vanguard has launched a small companies exchange traded fund (ETF) called the MSCI International Small Companies Index ETF, trading as VISM.
The ETF offers diversified international small cap exposure to around 3910 holdings across 19 developed markets globally. It gives retail investors access to a popular Vanguard wholesale fund with a track record of more than ten years, and $801 million in funds under management.
“We are delighted to see this new ETF commence trading today, representing a first for Australian ETF investors, and providing a further highly diversified building block for our investors,” Damien Sherman, head of ETF Capital Markets, said when the fund started trading on the ASX mid November.
