Managing director and head of Americas
At the beginning of 2019, Kathy Bock took over as head of Vanguard's Americas business, which includes Canada, Latin America and the Caribbean. In Canada, Vanguard ranks as the country’s third largest ETF provider, growing by 15.4% over the past year to $22.8 billion in assets across 40 funds.
One of the areas in which Vanguard continues to take the lead in innovation is with single-ticket ETFs. Earlier this year, the firm introduced its latest, the Vanguard Global Aggregate Bond Index ETF (CAD-hedged). “Canadian investors and advisors are increasingly going global for simple, low-cost and well-diversified fixed income solutions,” Bock said at the time. “We are pleased to serve those needs with a single-ticket fixed income ETF that is broadly diversified and is unique in its category.”
