Fund Description

The Vanguard Dividend Appreciation Index Fund Investor Shares (VDAIX) is a low-cost, passively managed fund that tracks the NASDAQ U.S. Dividend Achievers Select Index. The metric is a measure of domestic large-cap stocks that have a record of increasing dividends for at least 10 years. REITs are excluded from the index.

Given its low costs and its mandate for equity income, VDAIX makes an ideal subcore position for investors looking to add a dose of dividends to their portfolios. The fund is managed by Vanguard.
