Fund Description

The Vanguard Energy Fund Investor Shares (VGENX) is an actively managed fund that seeks to provide investors with low-cost exposure to both U.S. and non-U.S. companies that are engaged in various aspects of the energy industry. Unlike other energy funds, VGENX invests only in those companies that focus purely on energy, such as oil, natural gas, and coal. Given its narrow scope, the fund’s resulting portfolio contains just over 100 individual securities, a large portion of which are domiciled outside of the U.S..

The fund is managed by Wellington Management Company, which uses a bottom-up approach, in which stocks are chosen based on the advisor’s estimates of fundamental investment value. The analysts seek to identify companies that offer significant potential for capital appreciation and possess high-quality earnings that are sustainable through cyclical market fluctuations. The management team also emphasizes company fundamentals, management track record, and security valuation.
