Fund Description

The Vanguard Balanced Index Fund Admiral Shares (VBIAX) is a traditional balanced fund. The fund owns U.S. stocks and bonds in a 60/40 split. VBIAX is passively managed and invests in two Vanguard index funds. The equity side tracks the CRSP U.S. Total Market Index, which holds large-, mid- and small-cap stocks. The fixed-income side tracks the Barclays U.S. Aggregate Float Adjusted Index, which holds investment-grade Treasury and corporate bonds.

Expenses for VBIAX are very low. Given its scope and broad holdings, the fund is suitable as a “one-stop-shop” holding for investors. The fund is internally managed by Vanguard.
