2016 Vanguard ETF ex-dividend and distribution dates


Updated: Mar 25th, 2016 | Vance Harwood

Apparently Vanguard likes to keep their ETF ex-dividend and distribution dates a secret until just a couple days before the event.  It has that old mutual fund feel to it—”we’ll give you a quote after-market and allow you to buy or sell our stuff at the end of the day, otherwise go away…”

As a result, the dates below are just guesses, based on previous year’s ex-dividend and distribution dates.   For ex-dividend and pay dates see this  Vanguard link for getting the confirmed dates.

This post contains all the dividend information I have on Vanguard ETFs, but I have also created separate posts for each of the subgroups.   Those groups are:

Monthly ex-dividend and pay dates: BND, BNDX, BSV, VGLT, BIV, VCSH, VWOB

Quarterly ex-dividend and pay dates: VFH, VNQ, VUG, VOO

Quarterly ex-dividend and pay dates: VIG, VTI, VTV, VV, VYM
