Vanguard is preparing to launch several international exchange-traded funds based on FTSE indices. The Malvern firm has licensed four new indices from FTSE Group: the FTSE Developed Europe Index; the FTSE Developed Asia Pacific ex-Japan Index; the FTSE Japan Index; and the FTSE All-World High Dividend Yield Index.

Vanguard will use the indices, which are part of FTSE’s All-World and All-World High Dividend Yield Index Series, for the creation of UCITS ETFs.
