WSJ: Vanguard Targets Barclays' Flagship ETF

by: Neil Anderson, Managing Editor

The Wall Street Journal's Diya Gullapalli sees a "price war" looming between the two giants, but will the Valley Forge, Pennsylvania-based mutually owned fund family pose a threat to a Barclays fund with more assets in it than Vanguard's entire ETF lineup? In an article on Saturday, Gullapalli reveals that Vanguard filed with the SEC in May for the Vanguard Europe Pacific ETF, which will track the same index as BGI's more than $45 billion iShares MSCI EAFE ETF, the MSCI EAFE index. While the Vanguard ETF's price of 15 basis points may be lower than that of the Barclays behemoth, it remains to be seen whether that different will mean much in a struggle between Barclays 59 percent, $291.9 billion market share on the one side and Vanguard's 7.0 percent, $34.7 billion market share on the other.
