Fund Description

The Vanguard International Explorer Fund Investor Shares (VINEX) is a low-cost, actively managed fund that seeks to aggressively grow investor capital by betting on small- and mid-cap stocks of international companies. The fund emphasizes developed markets over emerging ones and uses fundamental screens to find undervalued growth stocks. VINEX also holds a small portion of its assets in stock index futures and ETFs to manage cash flows.

With its focus on riskier small- and mid-cap international stocks, VINEX makes for a great subcore position in a diversified portfolio. The fund is managed by Schroder Investment Management North America and Wellington Management Company LLP.
