Vanguard has cut its fees for 10 ETFs to compete with the ever-reducing costs to own an ETF. Second only to BlackRock, Vanguard is one of the leading ETF issuers with nearly $950bn in assets under management.

This month alone has seen Fidelity expand its commission-free ETF offering as well fintech platform SoFi filing for the first zero-fee ETF in the US.

Reducing the fees by one or two basis points, the ETF giant appears to be encouraging traffic into the ETF market.
