Vanguard is looking to expand into active ETFs

  • Vanguard filed paperwork this morning with the SEC requesting permission to add active ETFs to its lineup.
  • The first active ETFs could be based on the following popular mutual funds: Vanguard Wellington (VWELX), Vanguard Explorer (VEXPX) and Vanguard Wellesley Income Fund (VWINX); the filing also included a number of muni-bond funds.
  • Active ETFs seem to an emerging trend, as a number of firms have recently filed for SEC permission to offer these funds to investors.
  • Vanguard's most popular ETFs: VTI, VWQ, VNQ, VEW, VIG, BND

    Would love to see some Vanguard munis as ETFs, especially VWAHX.

    As long as the expense ratios are low like its other ETF's I think they would be good in a portfolio.
