Fund Description

The Vanguard Intermediate-Term Tax-Exempt Fund Admiral Shares (VWIUX) is a low-cost, actively manage fund that seeks to provide high current income while avoiding Federal taxes. VWIUX does this by investing in intermediate-term municipal bonds, usually with a duration of seven to 10 years. Munis are bonds issued by states, towns and local governments to pay for various programs and are exempt from Federal taxes. The fund uses credit management to find undervalued muni bonds that could provide income and capital appreciation.

Given its low costs, VWIUX makes an ideal core fund for those investors in higher tax brackets looking to trim their bills. The fund is internally managed by Vanguard.
