Fund Description

The Vanguard Small Capitalization Growth Index Fund Investor Shares (VISGX) is a low-cost, passively managed index fund that tracks the growth segment of small-cap U.S. stocks. VISGX tracks the CRSP U.S. Small Cap Growth Index and uses a full-replication strategy in owning all the stocks in the index. This gives investors exposure to over 765 different domestic small-caps that meet various growth metrics. A broad range of sectors and industries are represented by the index.

As an index covering small-cap growth stocks, VISGX makes an ideal core position paired alongside a small-cap, U.S. value fund, or as a way to overweight growth stocks. The fund is internally managed by Vanguard.
