Fund Description

The Vanguard Target Retirement 2040 Fund Investor Shares (VFORX) is a target-date fund of funds. Using a specified glide path, VFORX invests in four other Vanguard index funds. The fund provides exposure to both domestics stocks of all market caps and international stocks. Additionally, both domestic and foreign investment-grade bonds are included in the fund’s holdings. As VFORX approaches 2040, it will reduce its exposure to equities and increase its holdings in fixed-income securities. The fund is managed by Vanguard.

Expenses for the fund are low. Given its all-encompassing approach to retirement investing, VFORX is perfect as a core option for investors.
