The existing tickers for Bond Index ETFs remain VBU, VBG and VGAB, and all three are now available for trading on NEO. Each of the Bond Index ETFs seeks to track the performance of a broad bond index in its respective market, which index is hedged back to the Canadian dollar.

Vanguard is now 22n/a fund maker to list products on the NEO Exchange, and the fifth to migrate funds to NEO.

“Vanguard’s investment mission and philosophy is based on providing investors with leading investment products and services,” commented Kathleen Bock, head of Vanguard Investments Canada Inc. “We are excited to work with NEO to provide greater service diversification across our ETF suite and help us make a difference for investors and financial advisors..”
