Investment into Vanguards Irish domiciled mutual funds can only be accepted from individuals resident in the following countries: Austria, Finland, France, Germany, Guernsey, Iceland, Isle of Man, Jersey, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. All investments are also subject to a minimum investment of €1m minimum per holding (or currency equivalent).
If you are a UK resident, the easiest way to invest in Vanguard funds as an individual is via Vanguard's digital investing service. This platform provides access to Vanguard funds and ETFs (GBP share classes only) via ISA, Junior ISA, SIPP and General Account options, with aggregated reporting and other investor services. Invest from £500 as a lump sum or £100 per month under a regular savings plan. Please note an annual account fee of 0.15% p.a. is payable on the first £250,000 invested. See the website for more details.
If you are a Belgium resident wishing to invest in Vanguard funds, contact CACEIS Belgium SA, Avenue du Port 86C b 320, B-1000 Brussels.
Investment in one or more units or shares of any UCITS is not exempt from risk. Before any investment, we recommend that you read the relevant prospectus, and especially its section on risks, and Key Investor Information Document(s) (“KIID”).
Tax treatment depends on the individual circumstances of each investor and may be subject to change. We recommend that you consult your own professional advisors on the implications of making an investment in, and holding or disposing units or shares of any UCITS and the receipt of distributions with respect to such units or shares under the law of the countries in which you are liable to taxation.
If you are resident in one of the countries listed above or are a UK or German resident wishing to invest outside of Vanguards digital services (as detailed above) please complete the subscription agreement linked above and return it by post or fax to our agent at the address below.
