Fund Description

The Vanguard Small-Cap Index Fund Admiral Shares (VSMAX) is a low-cost, passively managed index fund that tracks the smallest stocks domiciled in the United States. VSMAX tracks the CRSP U.S. Small-Cap Index and employs a full-replication strategy by owning all the stocks in the index. This gives investors exposure to over 1,500 different domestic small-caps. A broad range of sectors and industries are represented by the index.

As an index covering small-cap stocks, VSMAX makes an ideal core position alongside large- and mid-cap U.S. equities. The fund is internally managed by Vanguard.
