Finally, good news for Canadian investors

Bogle is coming, hopefully with low fees.

Now we can end our posts with "psst - Wellesley" (or similar)

Wouldn't that be "Wellesley, eh?"

Curious: Are there restrictions or higher taxes consequences of Canucks using Vanguard's current funds? Thanks.

We can buy NY listed ETFs, we can't buy the actively managed funds (I think it's US regulations but may be Canadian).

So what will their ETFs buy us? If they are only available through fee-based advisoers, then there will likely be higher fees. I suppose there might be some advantages for their foreign ETFs...

I was referring to their actively managed and balanced products (ie "Wellesley, eh?"). Their ETFs are available today but can cause high NW Canadians to be liable for US estate tax.

Their non-ETF products, if they include them, would be a good alternative for MF investors. Let's see, a Vanguard TSX dividend fund with a .5% MER or the same thing from IG for 2.5%?
