➊Always check the iNAV or NAVwhen deciding on priceVanguard ETFs can be bought andsold on the stock exchange just likeregular shares.All of our ETFs are well established, highly liquid and covered by multiple marketmakers. This means our investors benefit from accurate pricing and tighttrading spreads.To help you get the best outcomes when buying or selling ETFs we recommendincorporating these six tips.ETF prices fluctuate throughout the day. Thesefluctuations are caused by price movementsof the underlying securities or proxies such as futures and currency markets forinternational products.iNAVThe iNAV is an estimate of the current valueof the ETF. This price is updated every 15seconds. We publish the iNAV for all Vanguarddomestic ETFs.To help determine the price you’re willing toaccept when you’re ready to transact you cancompare the current trading price with anETF’s net asset value (NAV) or intraday netasset value (iNAV). These metrics representsthe net value of all the assets in the ETFdivided by the number of units outstanding.NAVThe NAV is the value of the ETF at the end ofthe trading day. This price does not updatefor live/current prices. However, it doesprovide a rough guide as to where the ETFshould be priced.These figures are published on the ETF productpages on our website.Example for illustrative purpose only: iNAV for Vanguard Australian Shares Index ETFNAV Price (AUD) 95.17844 1.1889 1.26%Estimated Intraday NAV(AUD) 94.90Management feeETF AUM (AUD)Indirect costsTotal AUM (AUD)0.10% p.a.0.00% p.a. 9.59 B 27.22 BYou can see the NAV and iNAV are different.

➋Use limit orders➌Avoid trading at the open and closeof the marketLimit orders provide peace of mind by lettingyou select a maximum or minimum executionprice for the ETF you want to buy or sell.The opening and closing prices of the stockexchange are determined by a number offactors such as overnight market moves. Thismeans ETFs can be more volatile at the openand close and you need to be cautious whentrading prior to 10:15am and after 3:45pm(Melbourne time).They offer advantages over market orders byproviding greater price control and protection.You can have confidence that your orderwill only execute at a price that you arecomfortable with.Limit orders can be amended or cancelledthroughout the trading day provided the orderhas not already been executed. When youplace a limit order your priority is securing thespecified price or better, rather than speedof execution.At the market open all ETF products begintrading at the same time making it difficult formarket makers to accurately price all of theproducts from the outset. There can be someadditional volatility in the first 15 minutes oftrading and this can be reflected in ETF bidask spreads being wider than usual.It’s important to note, limit orders may not befulfilled if the trading price does not go belowa purchase limit or above a sale limit price.➍Pay attention during volatile periodsDuring periods of heightened volatility,ETF prices will reflect what is happening inthe underlying securities. The prices of theunderlying securities/investments will bemoving more sharply during these times. Thisimpacts ETFs in two ways:Market makers will not absorb these increasedrisks to price and hedge the ETF. They will thenpass them on to ETF investors in the formof wider spreads. ETF investors who chooseto trade during these times need to takeextra caution.1. ETFs become more difficult to price withsharply moving prices.It’s important to remember that ETFs are pricetakers, not price makers. ETFs do not causethe volatility in the underlying market, they aresimply passing it on in a live trading vehicle.2. ETFs become harder and/or more expensivefor the market makers to hedge.4Similarly, as the market approaches the close,an ETF may experience wider spreads andmore volatility as market participants begin tolimit their risk.vanguard.com.auBuying and selling Vanguard ETFs5
