Fund Description

The Vanguard Extended Market Index Fund Investor Shares (VEXMX) is a low-cost, passively managed index fund that tracks small- and mid-cap U.S. stocks. VEXMX tracks the S&P Completion Index and is designed to provide exposure to all U.S. stocks not found in the large-cap-based S&P 500. The fund uses a full-replication strategy by owning all the stocks in the index. This provides investors exposure to over 3,350 different domestic small- and mid-cap stocks. A broad range of sectors and industries are represented by the index.

As an index covering all the small and mid-cap stocks in the U.S., VEXMX makes an ideal core position paired alongside an S&P 500 index fund. The fund is internally managed by Vanguard.
