Fund Description

The Vanguard Target Retirement 2055 Fund Investor Shares (VFFVX) is a target-date fund of funds. Using a specified glide path, VFFVX invests in four other Vanguard index funds. The fund provides exposure to both domestics stocks of all market caps as well as international stocks. Additionally, both domestic and foreign investment-grade bonds are included in the fund’s holdings. As VFFVX approaches 2055, it will reduce its exposure to equities and increase its holdings in fixed-income securities.

Expenses for the fund are low. Given its all-encompassing approach to retirement investing, VFFVX is perfect as a core option for investors.
