Fund Description

The Vanguard Energy Fund Admiral Shares (VGELX) is a low-cost way to gain exposure to the U.S. and non-U.S. energy sector. The fund is actively managed and holds a wide variety of energy stocks across up-, mid- and downstream subsectors. The fund is free to own other energy sources as well, including coal and solar power. VGELX employs a multi-manger approach in which each manager follows a slightly different style of investing to build their portfolio of assets.

Even with its low costs, VGELX should only be used as an accompanying position in a broader portfolio. The fund is managed by Vanguard and Wellington Management Company.
