Fund Description

The Vanguard Growth Index Fund Investor Shares (VIGRX) is an index fund that tracks large- and mid-cap growth stocks domiciled in the United States. As a low-cost index fund, VIGRX is best suited as a core position and compliment for a similar value-style index fund. At the same time, the fund does make a great sole position.

The fund’s underlying index is the CRSP U.S. Large Cap Growth Index, which currently holds over 370 stocks. The index provides exposure to all the main growth sectors of the U.S. equity markets (health care, consumer stocks, energy and technology) within one low-cost ticker. The fund is internally managed by the Vanguard Group.
