Vanguard Patented a Way to Avoid Taxes on Mutual Funds


Recommended Posts

There was another article on Bloomberg a few weeks back about the practice in general. Vangaurd patented attaching an ETF to their mutual fund to effectuate this in a mutual fund, but that's all.


Most ETFs do this from my understanding and is by-and-large why they're more tax efficient than their fund counterparts.

Pretty wild the daily change of BND vs VBTLX


The ETF is down 5.44% and the fund is down .96%. Pretty crazy...since they are basically the same thing.


Not sure how you can arbitrage that but seems like a no brainer.
