Bock has led the Vanguard Americas business since 2014, and she has more than 20 years of leadership experience at the company. Her familiarity with the Canadian market, Vanguard says, will provide “a continuity in approach” and “a seamless transition for Vanguard clients and employees in Canada.”

In the statement, the company says the “transition is consistent with Vanguard’s rotational leadership culture.”

BlackRock iShares was first at $59.4 billion, followed by BMO at $50.3 billion. However, “As of September, the highest inflows year-to-date have been going to Vanguard, BMO, Mackenzie and Horizons ETFs,” the report says.
