Fund Description

The Vanguard 500 Index Fund Investor Shares (VFINX) offers investors a low cost way to gain diversified exposure to the U.S. equity market. The fund’s benchmark is the most well-known and most widely-used index in the world – the S&P 500, which represents 500 of the largest U.S. companies on the market. Like its benchmark, VFINX is broadly diversified across multiple sectors, including financials, health care, industrials, information technology, and consumer goods and services.

The fund is managed by The Vanguard Group and uses full replication of the S&P 500 index, meaning the portfolio holds all stocks in the same capitalization weighting as the index. VFINX launched in 1976 and was the first fund in the industry to offer individual investors an index-based strategy.
