I tried comparing Vanguard's ETF returns to the index the ETF is tracking and it looks like their ETF highly outperformed the index?
S&P/ASX 300 index only grew less than 29% total in 5 years, roughly 5.5% annualized growth.
Vanguard's ETF (scroll down to
Australian Shares, VAS, S&P/ASX 300) claims 8.85% annualized returns, which is 54% total growth over 5 years.
Why is there such a big difference?
