Fund Description

The Vanguard Small-Cap Growth Index Fund Admiral Shares (VSGAX) is a low-cost, passively managed index fund that tracks the CRSP U.S. Small Cap Growth Index and uses a full replication strategy by 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, VSGAX makes an ideal core position paired alongside a U.S. small-cap value fund or as a way to overweight growth stocks. The fund is internally managed by Vanguard.
