Fund Description

The Vanguard Equity Income Fund Investor Shares (VEIPX) is an actively managed fund designed to produce above-average current income. Capital appreciation is a secondary objective. The fund uses various dividend- and cash flow-related fundamental metrics as well as quantitative investment techniques to build its portfolio. VEIPX skews its portfolio towards large-cap value stocks and is broadly diversified across market sectors.

With its focus on current income, VEIPX could find a home as a satellite position in the portfolios of income-seeking investors who already have exposure to fixed-income securities. The fund is managed by Vanguard and Wellington Management Company.
