Vanguard trackers added Vantage platform

Several of Vanguard Asset Management’s tracker funds have been added to Hargreaves Lansdown’s Vantage platform.

A total of 12 trackers in the equity, fixed-income and blended spaces are available to retail investors through Vantage, with a minimum investment of £1,000 per holding.

Equity funds now on the platform include Vanguard’s FTSE UK Equity Index, FTSE UK Equity Income Index, FTSE Developed World ex-UK Equity Index, FTSE Developed Europe ex-UK Equity Index and US Equity Index products.

Vanguard’s UK Inflation-Linked Gilt Index and UK Long Duration Gilt Index trackers were included from its fixed-income range, while the blended products offered are the LifeStrategy 20% Equity, LifeStrategy 40% Equity, LifeStrategy 60% Equity, LifeStrategy 80% Equity and LifeStrategy 100% Equity funds.

Tom Rampulla, the managing director of Vanguard, says: “A number of new platform models have emerged which mean that more investors can access low-cost funds such as ours, which have not paid rebates to platforms and have, therefore, not previously been available to investors.”
