Fund Description

The Vanguard LifeStrategy Growth Fund Investor Shares (VASGX) is a passively managed moderate-allocation fund. The fund holds bonds and stocks in a 20/80 spilt. VASGX is a fund of funds and as such, invests in four other Vanguard index funds: the Total Stock Market Index Fund, the Total Bond Market II Index Fund, the Total International Stock Index Fund and the Total International Bond Index Fund. VASGX’s objective is to produce capital appreciation and a very low level of current income.

Given its wide span of holdings and low costs, VASGX is a perfect all-in-one option for investors. The fund is internally managed by Vanguard.
