Fund Description

The Vanguard LifeStrategy Income Fund Investor Shares (VASIX) is a passively managed, conservatively allocated fund. The fund holds bonds and stocks in an 80/20 split and invests in four other Vanguard index funds: the Total Stock Market Index Fund, the Total Bond Market II Index Fund, the Total International Stock Index Fund and the Total International Bond Index Fund. VASIX’s objective is to produce a high level of current income.

Given its wide span of holdings and low costs, VASIX is a perfect all-in-one option for retired or risk-averse investors. The fund is internally managed by Vanguard.
