The investment seeks to provide preservation of capital, and its secondary objectives are to provide income and long-term growth of capital. The fund invests primarily in fixed income securities, including U.S. Treasury securities, pass-through securities, and corporate bonds. It invests primarily in investment grade securities, but may also invest to a limited extent in non-investment grade securities (junk bonds). The fund may also invest in U.S. and foreign stocks, including those in emerging markets, American Depository Receipts (ADRs), and derivative instruments.
The investment seeks to provide a tax-efficient investment return consisting of federally tax-exempt income, long-term capital appreciation, and a modest amount of taxable current income. The fund invests approximately 50% to 55% of its assets in municipal securities and the balance in common stocks. The fixed income portion of the fund is concentrated in high-quality municipal securities with a dollar-weighted average maturity expected to be between 6 and 12 years. At least 75% of the municipal bonds purchased by the fund will be rated in one of the top three credit-rating categories.
The investment seeks current income and low to moderate capital appreciation. The fund invests in other Vanguard mutual funds according to a fixed formula that reflects an allocation of approximately 60% of the fund's assets to bonds and 40% to common stocks. Its indirect bond holdings are a diversified mix of short-, intermediate-, and long-term U.S. government, U.S. agency, and investment-grade U.S. corporate bonds; mortgage-backed and asset-backed securities; and government, agency, corporate, and securitized investment-grade foreign bonds issued in currencies other than the U.S. dollar (but hedged by Vanguard to minimize foreign currency exposure).

The fees, balance and savings information above are estimated numbers, based on the data FeeX had at the day of publication, but may not be accurate due to incomplete or erroneous data.

The best choice is based on a combined analysis of lowest fees and highest similarity to the original fund.


FeeX's similarity algorithm analyzes over 15 investment characteristics like investment category, asset allocation, strategy, geographical allocation and more. FeeX gives each its own weight and calculates the similarity of any two investments based on a scale of 0 to 100%. Funds with a similarity ranking of 85% and higher are considered "similar".

Yes, funds and ETFs charge fees

Deep within every fund you own lies a hidden fee called expense ratio. It takes away a set % of your savings each and every year. It can often be easily reduced by switching to similar investments with lower expense ratios.
