Passive fund provider Vanguard has decreased annual charges on 25 tracker funds and exchange traded funds (ETFs). Effective from September 1, both equity and bond funds have had their charges lowered, in some cases halving the annual cost of investing.

The Silver Rated Vanguard FTSE UK Equity Index Fund and Vanguard FTSE UK All Share Index Unit Trust will cost just 0.08% a year, reduced from 0.15%, while the ongoing charge on the Vanguard Global Small-Cap Index Fund will be reduced from 0.4% to 0.38%. The Vanguard S&P 500 UCITS ETF (VUSD) has had costs cut to just 0.07% from 0.09%.

This is not the first time the fund provider has lowered investment costs.
