Fund Description

The Vanguard GNMA Fund Admiral Shares (VFIJX) is an actively managed fund focused on the fixed-income sector. VFIJX hones its portfolio towards Ginnie Mae bonds, pass-through securities and repurchase agreements for Ginnie Mae bonds. Ginnie Mae bonds are U.S. 100%-backed government mortgage bonds issued through various housing authorities and agencies in the United States. The fund uses fundamental credit analysis to outperform its benchmark.

With its low costs and relatively low risk and high yield, VFIJX is a great subcore position in a broad fixed-income portfolio. The fund is internally managed by Vanguard’s Fixed Income Group.
