Fund Profile

Category: Open Ended Investment Company

The Fund seeks to track the performance of the FTSE Developed Asia Pacific ex Japan Index (the “Index”). The Index is comprised of large and mid-sized company stocks in developed markets in Asia and the Pacific Region, excluding Japan. The Fund attempts to 1. Track the performance of the Index by investing in all constituent securities of the Index in the same proportion as the Index. Where not practicable to fully replicate, the Fund will use a sampling process. 2. Remain fully invested except in extraordinary market, political or similar conditions. The Fund may invest in financial derivative instruments that could increase or reduce exposure to underlying assets and result in greater fluctuations of the Fund's net asset value. Some derivatives give rise to increased potential for loss where the Fund's counterparty defaults in meeting its payment obligations. The base currency of the Fund is USD. The Fund invests in securities which are denominated in currencies other than the listing currency. Movements in currency exchange rates can affect the return of investments. The Fund may engage in short term secured lending of its investments to certain eligible third parties. This is used as a means of generating additional income and to off-set the costs of the Fund. The Fund may not be appropriate for short-term investment. Income from the ETF Shares will normally be paid out quarterly. ETF Shares are listed on one or more stock exchange(s). Subject to certain exceptions set out in the prospectus, investors who are not Authorised Participants may only sell ETF Shares through a company that is a member of a relevant stock exchange at any time when that stock exchange is open for business. Portfolio transaction costs will have an impact on performance. Shares in the Fund can be bought or sold on a daily basis (save on certain bank holidays or public holidays and subject to certain restrictions described in Appendix 1 of the prospectus) by submitting an application in writing or by telephone. A full list of the days on which shares in the Fund cannot be sold is available on https://www.vanguard.co.uk/docum- ents/portal/legal/etf-holiday-calendar.pdf For further information about the objectives and investment policy of the Fund, as well as the limited relationship with the Index provider, please see Appendix 1 and Appendix 6 of the Vanguard Funds plc prospectus (the "Prospectus") on our website at https://global.vanguard.com
