E*TRADE Adds More Than 120 No-Load, No-Transaction-Fee Mutual Funds to Its Platform, Now Totaling More Than 4,400 Funds

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

E*TRADE is the only major online broker to offer Vanguard mutual funds within its no-load, no-transaction-fee program

E*TRADE Financial Corporation (ETFC) today announced it is the first among major online brokers to offer no-load, no-transaction-fee Vanguard mutual funds on its platform.

With this new offering, customers can access 124 Vanguard mutual funds for their investment strategy on a no-transaction-fee basis. Investors are able to choose from a wide variety of actively managed funds, including alternative, balanced, domestic and international equity, sector, municipal and taxable bond, and target date funds. With this enhancement, E*TRADE now offers more than 4,400 no-load, no-transaction-fee mutual funds for customers. These Vanguard mutual funds are in addition to the 32 Vanguard commission-free ETFs E*TRADE included on its platform of more than 250 commission-free ETFs in June.

“We are thrilled to add these funds to our complete suite of investment products, from stocks to bonds to ETFs,” said Rich Messina, SVP of Investment Product at E*TRADE Financial. “We are always looking for ways to give our customers more choice at a low cost. This expansion of our no-load, no-transaction-fee mutual fund offering gives investors the opportunity to gain exposure to active management with no transaction fees. That means more of their money can work for them.”

No-load, no-transaction-fee Vanguard mutual funds added to the E*TRADE platform include:

About E*TRADE Financial and Important Notices

The fund's prospectus contains its investment objectives, risks, charges, expenses, and other important information and should be read and considered carefully before investing. For a current prospectus, visit www.etrade.com/mutualfunds or etrade.com/etf.

You can invest in the mutual funds available through E*TRADE Securities’ no-load, no-transaction-fee program without paying loads, transaction fees, or commissions. To discourage short-term trading, E*TRADE Securities will charge an Early Redemption Fee of $49.99 on redemptions or exchanges of no-load, no-transaction-fee funds that are held for less than 90 days. Direxion funds (other than the Indexed Commodity Strategy Fund DXCTX), ProFunds, Rydex mutual funds, and all money market funds are not subject to the Early Redemption Fee. All fees and expenses as described in the fund's prospectus still apply. Please read the fund's prospectus carefully before investing.

About E*TRADE's Commission-Free ETF Program

You can buy and sell the exchange-traded funds (ETFs) available through the E*TRADE Securities (ETS) Commission-Free ETF Program without paying brokerage commissions. For margin customers, certain ETFs purchased through the program are not margin eligible for 30 days from the purchase date. To discourage short-term trading, ETS may charge a short-term trading fee on sales of participating ETFs held less than 30 days. The list of commission-free ETFs is subject to change at any time without notice.

ETS has contracted with certain ETF companies to receive compensation in connection with the purchase of ETFs offered commission-free through ETS. This additional compensation is paid by an affiliate of the ETF. The compensation ETS receives as a result of these relationships is paid based on initial setup fees, and a percentage of invested assets ranging from 0 to 0.15% per annum, depending on the fund company.

If you have any questions about the Commission-Free ETF Program, call us anytime at 800-ETRADE-1 (800-387-2331).
