2017 Ex-dividend and Pay Dates: VT, VWO, VGK, VEU, VSS, VNQI, VEA, VPL, VXUS, EDV, MGV, MGC, VPU

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.

    Are these dates adjusted for the change to T+2 settlement?

  • Hi Mark, Good question. In the case of Vanguard the dates are guesses, so they could easily be off by a day or more anyway. In general I expect that ex-div and distribution dates will stay the same but record dates will be a day sooner. I don’t give record dates in any of my posts so I don’t have to deal with it, but as of 5-Sept-17 any currently published record dates will be off by a day.

    June 13 is in the past now. Wouldn’t it be announced on their site by now if the date were correct?

  • HI Wizzy, My dates are just estimates. Hasn’t gone ex-div yet. In 2014 it was on 26-Jun, so it might not be till then.

    Vance, What is the word on VNQI? It doesn’t seem to be paying dividend anymore. It missed Q1 and now looks like Q2. Your thoughts?

  • Looking at the dividend history I”d be surprised if it didn’t have a June dividend. The dates can vary a lot, but should be in June. It does have a low / non-existent dividend on the first quarter so the skip this year is not surprising.

    I will be surprised if it does have one. Thanks for responding.
