Investors in 23 Vanguard exchange-traded funds (ETFs) now have a few dates to mark in their diaries following the release of the next distributions calendar today.

According to the calendar, the ex-dividend date for the next round of distributions will be 2 April.

That means you'll need to own the relevant ETFs before this date to receive the next payment.

The record date will be 3 April.

The payment date will be 17 April.

Which Vanguard ETFs are affected?

These dates are relevant to some of the most popular Vanguard products in the market.

They include the Vanguard Australian Shares Index ETF (ASX: VAS), which tracks the performance of the ASX 300 and is one of the biggest ETFs in Australia with a market capitalisation of $14.72 billion.

The dates are also relevant to Vanguard Australian Shares High Yield ETF (ASX: VHY), which has a track record for delivering some of the best returns of all Australian shares ETFs.

If you own the Vanguard Diversified High Growth Index ETF (ASX: VDHG), which allows investors to buy 16,000 ASX and international shares in one transaction, for one brokerage fee, then these dates apply to you as well.

Another ETF covered by this distribution calendar is Vanguard MSCI Index International Shares ETF (ASX: VGS), which hit a new 52-week high of $124.13 in earlier trading today.
