Vanguard cut the ongoing charge figure (OCF) on its four UK-domiciled active funds on 19 June 2019. The changes are as follows:

  • Vanguard Global Equity Fund: 60bps to 48bps
  • Vanguard Global Equity Income Fund: 60bps to 48bps
  • Vanguard Global Emerging Markets Fund: 80bps to 78bps
  • Vanguard Global Balanced Fund: 60bps to 48bps

    Vanguard’s active funds aim to provide stability, experience and a focus on long-term, low-cost investing.

    These attributes have played a consistent role in our long history of active investing and are evident in our new UK funds. The funds are a careful blend of the best-available external and internal investment managers – all at a low cost.

    Vanguard’s approach to active

    To deliver funds likely to succeed in the long term, we focus on the three most critical factors: Talent, Cost and Patience. Our product review process is led by our CEO, with funds typically comprising a careful blend of a small number of the best available fund managers. We believe our global track record in managing active funds proves the value of our approach.


    Carefully select managers with a proven process and demonstrable ability.


    Don't let high fees destroy fund performance


    Accept that there will be periods of underperformance
