Vanguard has announced what the estimated distributions for its exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are going to be this quarter.
Vanguard is a world leader in providing regular investors like you and I the opportunity to invest in various asset indexes with very low annual management fees because it is run for the benefit of its investors. This is a great advantage for us because it allows us to keep more of our investment returns, rather than giving it to investment managers who may or may not deliver better returns for a much higher fee.
